Shazam! September 21, 2007

Posted by Brian L. Belen in Comics.

For those who haven’t heard, DC Comics is giving its Johnny DC imprint for younger readers a much needed shot in the arm with a bunch of new titles. Of these, readers can look forward to a true jolt of electricity as Mike Kunkel takes the helm of the upcoming Captain Marvel series, Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam!

The famed animator has already won critics over with his charming “Superman-meets-Santa-Clause”-esque Herobear and the Kid, so fans are sure to be in for a treat as Kunkel offers his take on the World’s Mightiest Mortal. The initial sketches (see above and click to enlarge) already go to show that the book promises to be downright fun for kids and adults alike: the entire Fawcett city cast look so utterly…awesome!

Kunkel’s already been interviewed by Newsarama regarding the upcoming work, and more information on the series will (sporadically) become available on the blog he’s set up for it.
