•Dr. BEN STONER's odd patient, SHAT-RU, gives him a golden amulet. Now Ben is hearing voices, too, but they're not what you'd describe as kind. Perhaps a better description would be ravenous.

ETERNALS/NEW GODS: THE DESTINY WAR #3 [of 12] *MAXI-SERIES!*
Written By MALCOLM JONES
Art By GARY FRANK
Plot By MARVELL2100
"Whom The Immortai Would Destroy!"
They are the New Eternals, a ragtag team comprised of New Gods and Eternals pulled from various time lines! They are in the citadel of Immortus, former master of time who now lies dead at the hands of the Immortai and they are fighting for their lives! The New Eternals were brought here by the Black Racer with the help of Immortus to overthrow the rule of the Immortai! But upon their arrival, they find that the time master is dead, the Black Racer has disappeared and their only guide is the Eternal Sprite! Badly outnumbered and on the brink of capture or death, N'Kada calls for a retreat as Barda and Omega collapse the building killing many of the Immortai and blocking their escape behind them! And not a moment too soon as perhaps the most dangerous member of the Trinity has just arrived, Zura Minister of War! She does not take failure lightly and a squad of Immortai soldiers are killed instantly by her powerful sword! Just who are these newcomers and why do they seem so familiar? The answer to these questions must wait as she heads back to New Olympia to report to her brother Viran, the head of the Trinity! Elsewhere, after securing safe haven, the New Eternals piece together that they are all from different timelines and were brought here for a reason. They turn to Sprite for answers and he tells them of the history of the Immortai and what they have done to the universe. In effect, this is what merging of the Eternals and new Gods is destined to become, a brutal regime that conquers the universe unless they can stop the Trinity and change history! But why these eight in particular and what can this small band do against an entire race of immortal warriors? Next Issue: The Trinity!

Art By PARIS CULLINS
Reign of the Old Gods! Conclusion: The Ballad of Set!
In future times the legends doth tell, the tale of an ancient god in battle who fell
With powerful arms he fought for his people his land, for fame for glory there are none who could withstand
His righteous fury borne of a rage that hath ne'er been witnessed before this timeless age
His power unleashed upon his relentless foe, no quarter asked, no one whispered "enow"
This is the tale of the Aegyptian god Set, who's unbridled power hath finally been met
By Orion of Apokolips in whose mighty hand, carried the power of Thor feared by gods and man

Orion, the last hope against this evil reborn, carries the hammer Mjolnir so battle-worn
From Apokolips to New Genesis and to worlds unknown, they battle cross foundations and far, far beyond
The Serpent god full coils as he prepares to strike, a deathblow filled with his venomous bite
But Orion stands firm with hammer in hand, as he summons the thunder and lighting that is his to command
Then unleashes a power near that of a thousand suns, and in that moment Set lay dead, his kingdom undone!

Weeks have passed and the body count continues to rise! A serial killer is on the loose and his targets are the elite of Tower, those who dwell in the Aerie! But this is no ordinary killer! All of his aristocrat victims are guilty of crimes to everyone except in the eyes of the law! And the cryptic messages left behind are undecipherable pieces of a much larger tapestry! This killer is well versed in Thanagarian lore and history. And judging by the marks of the weapon used to commit the crime, it is an ancient relic not seen since the early days of Thanagar! Katar and Shayera have very little to go on but one thing is clear, someone has a vendetta against the rich and well to do of Thanagar so they will be many more deaths to come! Far away, the statue of Thanagar's greatest hero stands naked in the rain, covered only by the illicit graffiti that adorns his body. Before him, a figure kneels and begins to pray. He prays for forgiveness, not for himself but for those who've lost their way, those who forgot what it truly means to be Thanagarian. But he mostly prays that they remember who they are, that they know themselves. He prays that they remember "Kalmoran!" Next Issue: Who Are You?

AOM SUPERNATURAL & NEW DAWN CURSED PRESENT THE CURSE-OVER OF THE YEAR!
"AMALGAMATE 3"
Plotted by MCGAFFER & EXCITER
Written by NEIL GAIMAN
Art by CLAYTON CRAIN
In a previous universe, he was a joke of a hero who somehow became the Sorceror Supreme. In any current universe, he never got beyond being a joke. But now, Stabbitty Jones doesn't know where to look as he takes in the impossibility of his current circumstance! A glowing stone basin spitting out incalculable power lays on the ground before him, but up in the sky are two vast holes in space with an Earth starting to fall through both of them. The lines of reality are blurring as the three worlds rather then colliding begin to merge! Oh yes, and there's some kid standing in front of him called Axxess who says that only he, Stabbitty Jones, can figure out how to put the Crucible back where it belongs! Of course there are others that think they know what is best for the Crucible too, and they are more then happy to sacrifice three worlds to get what they want. Or so says the devil, Mephisto, who has also appeared. Mephisto knows the race is almost over and desperately uses the last power available to him - his silver tongue! The devil will retake what is his and damn the souls that will burn in consequence! But he's not the only one seeking to reclaim what was lost. The Beyonder is present too, and he's been manipulating the situation to put himself before the Crucible since he lost his powers... Who, if anyone, will emerge with ultimate omnipotence? It all goes down here in the startling conclusion to Amalgamate!

JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #17 ***AMALGAMATE CROSSOVER***
Plotted by EXCITER
Written by MARK WAID
Art by MATTEO SCALERA
“POWER CORRUPTS”
Absolute power corrupts absolutely - and absolute power is contained within the Crucible! The Justice League Dark was pulled into the conflict when ripples of energy from the Crucible, which the malevolent Dr. Doomsday pulled into his amalgam Dawn of Marvels Universe, began affecting magic in their own New Dawn Universe. Now the team is at each others' throats, no one trusting their own teammates with absolute power... but one thing that Zatanna, Etrigan, Amethyst, Azrael, Zealot, Swamp Thing, Lobo, and Kratos can all agree on is that Dr. Doomsday definitely shouldn't have that power! The only solution may be to trap Dr. Doomsday in his universe and move the Crucible to another - but can the remaining members of the Dark Defenders League, Speed Demon and the Silver Racer, move fast enough to buy the Justice League Dark and the Defenders enough time to combine their magics and use their spells to lock Dr. Doomsday in the Dawn of Marvels universe? And if they do, can the Dawn of Marvels survive his wrath?
At the same time, the Crucible has caused the boundaries between life and death to blur. This allows supernatural entities, such as ghosts, to manifest in all three worlds. But it also means Zatanna and Dr. Strange can call the White Witch (Wanda Zatarra) and Dr. Strangefate back into the fight! And with them... the late Kent Nelson! Dr. Fate is back! But is even the combined power of the Lord of Order, the Sorcerer Supreme, and the Sorcerer of Order enough to set things right?

The war on crime knows no limits for Batman and his soldiers!


MR. J & HARLEY: MAD LOVE ON THE RUN #0
or The Joker: Agent of Chaos #0.5
Written by PAUL DINI with GRANT MORRISON
Plot by GLOBAL HONORED
Art by RAFAEL ALBUQUERQUE
Variant Cover by BRUCE TIMM
"A CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE"
The Deal: The Joker is locked up once again within Arkham Asylum, having recently made a most unexpected decision in teaming with his arch-nemesis, The Caped Crusader, in what originated as a one time partnership with a mutual cause into something else entirely. The Bat has coerced The Clown Prince of Crime into being his "Inside Man," his own Batman Incorporated Agent operating within the world's most dangerous psychiatric prison. Perhaps The Bat is using a new strategy to occupy his greatest foe but instead he planted a seed inside the wicked imagination of Arkham's true super personality.
The Epiphany: the Joker reflects on a life of ambitiously vile plans, wondrously anarchic dreams, inspiring corruptions and insane absurdities that have sent him on a cyclical path for as long as he dares remember. It begins with a rise to power, bleeding his rivals, stirring fear among all walks of life, drawing the attention of The Gotham's protector, falling under that dark spell, that unbreakable bond, the brother he never had that leads to the "hero" righteously victorious, and the villainous jester to enact his part in the deranged play again and again, defeated. Almost succeeding each chance he gets but never quite able to pull the proverbial trigger. *Bang!* flags do not change the hands of fate. Then Arkham. Then the rehabilitation, the drugs, the doctors, opening the doors for the demons to return, the schemes start swimming in that brilliantly maniacal cerebrum, leading to another escape, another reign of carnage, another duel with the Dark Knight, an inevitably another tragic fall. "So close, we'll get 'em next time Boss," they'll cry, those ignorant nameless goons. "Wait until we bust out of here," they'll naively sing. Rinse and repeat. Oh the mundanity manifests, the boredom blooms bluer and life is less a thrill each and every time those doors slam shut. No longer is there a rise when that Gotham sky lights up his call. The excitement is gone, the dance is over, the band is all but dead. Goodbye Gotham. Adios Arkham. Life or death has always been the game, it's just time to change the playing field. And he of all people gave new purpose. Why be just a vessel inside the constraints of prison cell when so much "good" can be done out there? If the Bat has this town under control, then who is watching out for all the lost spaces in between? The glow of Greener pastures so they say, and that's always been one of his colors. The road to redemption awaits and it lies on the highways out of this godforsaken city. This country is wide, the nation needs something to wake it up, make it appreciate life while it has it, an enema of evil, a cacophony of chaos to stir the soul. A little terror goes a long way. Beyond the walls of this dungeon, a new frontier awaits. New beginnings. New adventures. A new life. Oh, the horrible possibilities, aren't they beautiful? "Harley Quinn, will you escape with me one last time, put on that make up, put up those pigtails and get in my Jokermobile for a road trip America will never forget? There is a brave new world out there on the horizon, Pumpkin-Pie. Free of bats and the diseases they carry and it screams for a new kind of hero. Just wait until they get a load of us!"
The Lost Highway: Witness the Joker and Harley Quinn leave Gotham forever as they set out on the Great American Highway, looking for misadventure and whatever madness comes their way, a few casualties aside. Join us for the new beginning of an eternal love story so intense it's criminally insane! Beware: On this ride you will glimpse inside the maniacal mind of New Dawn's Most Wanted as he performs missions only his bats**t imagination would choose to accept. Just remember to bring plenty of sun screen, it's easier to burn the closer you get to hell.

The world's deadliest assassins hunt him in the darkness, calling out in sing song voices about what they're going to do to him once they catch him. Of course they think they are hunting the Mayor of Gotham, Logan Wayne, an ordinary man who will scream for mercy which will never come as they flay him alive slowly just as the Big Question has paid them to do! Snikt! The sound of the claws is legendary amongst those that live in the shadows, it is a sound they long never to hear! It echos down the dark sewer tunnels and the singing stops. This game is so much more serious now, but Logan must find a way of making sure that they can't figure out that Logan Wayne and Dark Claw are one and the same! He sniffs and knows instinctively who is first, Dare the Terminator. Blind, so the darkness won't even slow her down. Dangerous and motivated to carry his hide to her master, it's time for the blades to go to work.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Lois meets with Dr. Hamilton to discuss the test results of the blood Batman stole from Cadmus. Hamilton discovers that Kent's blood, recovered from the scene in his apartment, doesn't belong to him at all. Although the DNA is a match, it's quickly deteriorating. Hamilton remarks how the crystalline nature of the deteriorated blood is Bizarre...

Back in space, Superman has had enough of his vampiric doppleganger...had enough of the distrust and fear placed upon him on Earth...had enough of struggling...and let's loose a blast of heat vision unlike any he has before. The blast nearly incinerates the Vampire Superman, and for the first time Clark is happy there is no sound in space. Clark floats in the emptiness, weaker now than ever...and it is then that Dominus finally faces him eye to eye...
