The Curse of Shazam Archives - Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources

Quote of the day | ‘We’re not … doing Gandalf in a red leotard’

The redesigned, and renamed, Shazam, by Gary Frank

“… The cape is now more of a cloak but, beyond that, the magic power is now a part of the look. The idea is that the lightning is always crackling around him, the power barely contained. He is, in effect, a conduit for the power. […] We’re not ditching the muscles and doing Gandalf in a red leotard.”

– artist Gary Frank, talking with Comic Book Resources about the redesign of Billy Batson/Shazam
for “The Curse of Shazam” backup feature in DC’s Justice League
