Okay, this is unrelated to your artwork since it's good and I have no real complaints about this piece, but why is the word "Shazam?" Like...really...okay at the time maybe it was cool, but it sounds pretty silly now. It's like they just wanted a stupid magic word and figured "YEAH! SHAZAM!! THATS COOL SOUNDING!!" Over the years, a lot of things have changed or been retconned, some things worse than "shazam" so why havent they changed the word to something a little more befitting? I'm not saying the MEANING of the word, or the PURPOSE should change...Just the word itself...Maybe instead of Shazam, they should change it to something that sounds more like an actual magical trigger word...
Not necessarily. If Jombi the Genie's magic words for granting a wish were "For'ten Nos Veratus Je'kall Ba'sarra" instead of "mekka lekka hi mekka hiney ho" Peewee's Playhouse would have a much more arcane feel to it.
It's hard to improve on the original, but this design is so smart and contemporary. Yet still invokes the past without being trapped in it. This would be a excellent new look for the Captain. If we could just get him away from D.C. (sigh)
He gets a back up feature in issue 6 of Justice League, but apparently he will not be called Captain Marvel because DC is sick of not being able to advertise there books under that name. So i'm assuming that means that if the new story is well recieved they may make a solo title... Which would be so very SHAZAM!
God I love your form sir. His left arm's curves just make me all gitty and inspires me like crazy! Thats all it takes to make me want to draw more then breathe! ONE arm frawn by you! Of course I have to go to work RIGHT now, but that is how it goes. Also, some constructive crit, a big shit eating grin would really set old Billy of. Just a thought.
I had no idea who this guy was at first but I finally figured it out. And I'll admit I thought the charcter was pretty lame until I saw the Superman/Shazam movie. He is offically one of my fav heroes now!
PS: the movie had a good story line but it was wwwwaaaaaayyyyyyy too short, but I'ld watch it again!
