Atlas Crushed: Preview The Infected: King Shazam By Grace, Bennet And DC Comics

by Olly MacNamee

Out today from DC Comics is a one-shot tie-in with Batman/Superman as well as the ongoing ‘Year of the Villain’, as Shazam gets infected in The Infected: King Shazam by writer Sina Grace, artist Joe Bennett and inks by Belardino Brabo and Matt Santorelli. A Superman-level threat is something you wouldn’t wish on your worse enemy, but it’s what the DCU have got. How they deal with it is another matter and worth finding out, if you pick up this book on your next trip to your local comic book story. Preview, as ever, below:

Billy Batson is a good kid. He helps his friends, loves his family, and tries to do the right thing. But Billy is about to have a run-in with the most dangerous serial killer in existence, and the Batman Who Laughs wants Billy to be bad. Spinning out of the events of Batman/Superman and “Year of the Villain,” it’s the tale of a hero whose soul has been turned black, and who has something to prove to the old guard. Buckle in for Shazam’s journey to punch a bunch of so-called “gods” in the face and show the establishment exactly what the future looks like…
