    For decades, Marvel and DC have been seen as two powerhouses in the comic industry, with their parallel universes of heroes and villains becoming household names. Over the years, both companies have occasionally joined forces to tell some ambitious crossover stories — and those will be back in print very soon. On Tuesday, DC and Marvel announced plans to print two new omnibuses of their previous crossovers: DC Versus Marvel Omnibus and DC/Marvel: The Amalgam Age Omnibus. Both DC Versus Marvel Omnibus and DC/Marvel: The Amalgam Age Omnibus will be available at participating bookstores and local comic book shops on Tuesday, August 6th. Both volumes will be offered with direct-market-exclusive covers, which are available only in local comic book shops, while supplies last.

    As the title suggests, DC Versus Marvel Omnibus will reprint a number of iconic issues originally co-published by both DC and Marvel, which have united some of their characters and teams over the years. DC/Marvel: The Amalgam Age Omnibus, meanwhile, will reprint portions of the fan-favorite Amalgam Universe, which fused DC and Marvel’s characters into some surprising combinations. Many of these stories have been out of print and hard to find for decades. This is the second time in recent years that DC and Marvel have joined forces to reprint a beloved crossover, after a limited run of JLA/Avengers to celebrate legendary creator George Perez.
