Overview When universes collideAmalgam Comics put out twelve comics in 1996, replacing both publisher's regular releases at the time, with six published by DC and six by Marvel, repeating the process again in 1997. Amalgam Comics also mentioned many other mythological comics published as far back as the Golden Age, comics that were never really published but merely added to the sense of Amalgam Comics being a real publisher, when in reality it wasn't. This reality has been designated Earth-9602 in the Marvel multiverse, DC numbering is unknown if it even exists in the post-52 DC multiverse. The reality is otherwise known as Earth-AMALGAM.
