Hello again my comic book reading folks of the readership of this here website; It’s time to continue the delivery of what is happening on the illustrated pages and this post covers what is coming from DC Comics side of the fence. I’m going to keep my introduction brief since it’s been an exhausting few days for me here at the PiercingMetal Media Command HQ but before you worry, please don’t as nothing bad is going on. There is just a sense of hyper-productivity going on and there are a lot of items to call to your attention from the last few days. That being said let’s take a look at the first issues and special editions hitting the racks from DC this month.
JUSTICE LEAGUE/AQUAMAN: DROWNED EARTH #1: “Drowned Earth” part one! The Ocean Lords—ancient sea gods with a grudge against Aquaman and Wonder Woman—invade the Earth with an alien army and flood the globe. As Batman, Superman and the Flash race to stop the waters from rising and turning everyone into aquatic monsters, Mera seeks the advice of an old enemy, and Arthur must face down Black Manta…or lose his connection to the ocean forever!

Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (thanks Wiki).

Look up in the sky, its a bird, its a plane, its…Superman!!! Oh and its also Shazam who teams up with him for this animated feature……
Right off the bat I was not sure how long the main feature of Superman/Shazam was going to be because these videos are usually best served up as half hour programs as we have seen being successful with Batman The Animated Series and even the Superman one that followed it. Upon beginning the film I learned that there was not an entire DVD’s worth of Superman cinema but instead four lengthy shorts and considering who they featured I was okay with it. Here is a little bit of detail about the four shorts. Continue reading Be Heroic & Watch “Superman/Shazam!: The Return Of Black Adam”→
