After a few delays, it looks like BILLY BATSON & THE MAGIC OF SHAZAM! #2 will hit comic shops on Wednesday, September 17, 2008. Creator Mike Kunkel has been teasing the long-awaited new issue on his BILLY BATSON blog at http://kunkelshazam.blogspot.com
. Check out cool color and black and white images from the issue. What are you waiting for?
Concerning the delay of the second issue and the missing solicitation of issue #5 in the DC's November solicitations ... a few days ago my Eterniphone was blinking and Solomon was on the other end. It seems all is well with BILLY BATSON AND THE MAGIC OF SHAZAM! The fans love it, DC loves it, and it's certainly a labor of love for creator Mike Kunkel. Even though Issue #5 isn't in the November solicitations, Solomon said not to worry. Mike is hard at work making sure that each and every issue looks as good as the first. And after reading the first issue, it's clear that it's a lot of work for one guy. So to make sure that the quality and commitment to the characters that Mike has demonstrated continues at the same level, Solomon said that BILLY BATSON AND THE MAGIC OF SHAZAM! is going to go bi-monthly for a bit.
So there you have it, there's no big mystery. It seems that both Mike and DC want to ensure the quality of the book and what could be better than that?
