Altered Image

 ALTK   (Image, 1998)

™ and ©1998 Jim Valentino

Altered Image is a fun idea that just doesn’t seem to work out as well as it should. The three-issue mini-series begins when Maxx wakes up and finds that reality has changed around him. In rapid order, he rounds up Majestic, Spawn, the Savage Dragon, ShadowHawk, and Witchblade to join with him in a quest to find out what the heck’s going on. Faster than you can yell “Amalgam Universe,” they are blipped through another dimensional portal where the characters become combined versions of one another (along with other Image characters).

Although Jim Valentino writes and draws the series, he doesn’t really hit on the idiosyncrasies of each of the characters, and as a result misses out on a great deal of the comic potential this situation gives.
