Golden Apple Comics exclusive Alan Quah homage to the classic Neal Adams Superman Vs Mahammad Ali boxing cover!  This is a wrap cover.

For the first time ever- the 'heavyweights of gross' have combined forces in a massive merchandising blitz that pits the Madballs against the Garbage Pail Kids-winner take all! As part of this blitz- Dynamite presents the comic book crossover of these iconic 1980s brands! For over three decades- Madballs and GPK have both been known as the 'grossest of the gross-' co-ruling counterculture with their pun-heavy names and subversive humor. This all-new limited series event presents the first time these two delightfully crude forces have ever crossed paths! Written by Sholly Fisch- each issue features three incredible covers by legendary Garbage Pail Kids artist Joe Simko- series artist Jason Crosby- and a special trading card team-up cover created specially for this momentous meeting of the (depraved) minds! As the original 'gross out' brand of the 1980s- Topps released its Garbage Pail Kids series of trading cards in 1985- featuring hilariously revolting characters with appropriately irreverent names. Fifteen different card series were produced over the next three years- in addition to a Garbage Pail Kids animated series and a full slate of globally-licensed consumer products- with ongoing product lines that continues to the present day. For its part- Madballs launched its irregularly shaped toy foam balls in 1986- featuring its own proprietary and often-socially inappropriate characters with ghastly faces- grotesque names- and disruptively funny attitudes to match. Madballs went on to sell tens of millions of toys- inspire a series of animated specials- and launch an extensive consumer products program that included comic books- softlines- video games- collectibles- seasonal items- and back-to-school products. Writer Sholly Fisch's credits run the gamut from Superman to Star Wars to Scooby-Doo- and from Clive Barker's Hellraiser to Looney Tunes. His comics for kids have won a Comics Buyer's Guide Fan Award- and been nominated for an Eisner Award and two Diamond Gem Awards- while several of his stories for older readers were included in the #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel collections of Action Comics.
