This week's issue of Cosmic Powers Unlimited features Marvel/DC crossovers.  First, we have a special edition of Drunk Thanos, the comical version of Marvel's Mad Titan, as he crosses paths with none other than Drunk Darkseid!  And to mark the occasion, we have THREE new covers by Caleb featuring the two.

Darkseid and Thanos also appear in this week's Cosmic Treasure Hunt, along with many other Marvel and DC heroes and villains.

The Last Herald of Galactus storyline also comes closer to an end this week, as the Protectors of the Universe Aftermath Saga concludes, leading into many upcoming CPU stories (and Marvel's Avengers Infinity!)

Plus, don't miss this week's chapter of the Twilight War sequel War Waged At The Stroke Of Midnight - Part 2: Longest Night and our original fiction story War of the Blood Gods #11.

Finally! The conclusion to the 3 Part Aftermath Saga. In the wake of Battle with Rune, the Protectors are in disarray, with many members taking leave of the team. But who will stay? Who will go? And what sinister force threatens to infect the cocoon of Adam Warlock? Starring, Thor, the Silver Surfer, Quasar, and many others, this tale is a direct prelude to Marvel's Avengers Infinity. See if you can count the number of direct Avengers Infinity continuity references in this chapter!
