SHAZAM #1 will debut on November 21, the same Wednesday before Thanksgiving that Johns debuted DOOMSDAY CLOCK #1 in 2017.
“Billy Batson and his surrogate family; Mary Bromfield, Freddy Freeman, Darla Dudley, Eugen Choi and Pedro Pena unlock the mysteries of the Rock of Eternity and delve into the secret worlds of magic to discover their ultimate destiny!”
