The Batman Who Laughs is making his move across the DCU, and he’s selected six heroes to be converted to his twisted sense of humor and the first up with a spotlight title is Billy Batson in The Infected: King Shazam #1.
Below, DC has released a first look at The Infected: King Shazam #1, to be released on November 6th. Read on for the official solicitation text and preview art including the cover and the first six unlettered pages.
“Let me put it to you this way: My soundtrack for writing an epic King Shazam! story was Limp Bizkit’s ‘Break Stuff’ on repeat.” –Sina Grace
Billy Batson is a good kid. Well… he was. Following the events of Batman/Superman and “Year of the Villain,” Shazam is now one of the Infected! One of DC’s greatest heroes has seen his soul turned black by the Batman Who Laughs—and Shazam’s on a journey to punch a bunch of so-called “gods” in the face and show the establishment exactly what the future looks like.
The Infected: King Shazam #1, from writer Sina Grace (Iceman, Go Go Power Rangers) and artist Joe Bennett (Immortal Hulk), is the first spotlight one-shot focusing on the heroes infected by the Batman Who Laughs, leading the way to the December-debuting Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen!
