Sgt. Rock and his Howling Commandos??

Surfing the web for inspiration and research material for “Mission: Adventure!” I ran across a blast from the past:

Back in the 90’s Marvel and DC teamed up and had some fun with their characters by creating a fictitious company called Amalgam Comics. Each company then took some of their hottest respective properties and melded them together to create whole new characters in a alternate- alternate universe. Some of the titles worked remarkably well, others not so much. But it was a fun experiment. I bought a few titles the other day-$.99 for a lot of six. They arrived on Friday and I’ve been reading them over the weekend. Great fun. Issues of the Amalgams are plentiful on EBay and there are several auctions where you can score multiple titles for less than five bucks.
