Shazam is back this summer with a new four-issue mini-series spinning out of Teen Titans Academy, in which Bill Batson’s alter ego is currently appearing. Shazam will be written by Tim Sheridan with art by Clayton Henry and come out July 20th from DC Comics.
And while we don’t have a preview as yet, we do have three covers to show you, with my particular favourite being the Steve Lieber/Gustave Doré mash-up. But as a 1:25 incentive cover, I have little chance of getting hold of one of those, sadly.
“Billy Batson came to Titans Academy looking for answers, but so far has kept his Shazam! identity a secret from his new classmates. Why was the rest of his adopted family cut off from the power of Shazam!? Why are his own powers becoming increasingly unreliable? What has happened to the Rock of Eternity, where is the Wizard, and who can help Billy get his powers back to normal before these mysterious events turn into a full-blown crisis?
The answers send Billy on an outrageous adventure that’ll not only change him…but have an immense impact on the school and other students on Titans Island!”
Shazam! #1 (of 4) by Tim Sheridan, Clayton Henry and Marcelo Maiolo arrives on July 20 with covers by Henry and Maiolo (main), Gary Frank and Brad Anderson (card stock variant) and Steve Lieber (1:25 card stock variant). Shazam! will retail for $3.99 US for 32 pages ($4.99 for card stock variants).
