Blackest Night Resurrects The Power of Shazam! For One Issue in January 2010!
Saturday, October 17, 2009
DC Comics will resurrect several canceled titles in January 2010 as part of its Blackest Night story line. One of the resurrected titles will be The Power of Shazam! The story appears to be somewhat of a continuation of Geoff Johns' ad Jerry Ordways's Shazam story line that ran in Justice Society of America #23-25. The solicitation reads as follows:
THE POWER OF SHAZAM #48
Written by Eric Wallace
Art by Don Kramer & Michael Babinski
Cover by Tom Feister
BLACKEST NIGHT infects the Black Adam family when Osiris returns from the dead as a Black Lantern to terrorize young Billy and Mary Batson! Now powerless after the wizard Shazam deemed them unworthy in JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #25, can the Batsons even count on the aid of Freddy Freeman, the new Captain Marvel? Find out in another of this month's one-issue revivals of classic DC Universe titles!
ONE SHOT - on sale January 13 - 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US
Most of the revived titles feature a creator long associated with that title. It seems strange that Jerry Ordway is in no way involved with this new issue of The Power of Shazam!
