I may object to the concept, but darn it if the first issues of the Convergence titles have been a whole heap of fun, like visiting old friends in their comfortable familiar homes, though knowing that those familiar homes might well be bulldozed the following day/issue.

Shazam is a case in point, with great writing from Jeff Parker (writer on Batman '66) and sublime art from Evan "Doc" Shaner.

Hi folks!

When Superman the Animated Series and Batman the Animated Series were on, they had tie-in comics, the Adventures line. We've seen scans from those every so often. But there was a third title, Adventures in the DCUniverse that covered everyone else in the DCU in kid-friendly stories.



This version draws most closely on the Jerry Ordway Power of Shazam continuity. 7 pages of 22.

Say the word! Feel the power! )

Now we wait for the newest Shazam-related series to find a hole in the schedule.

Your thoughts and comments?
