Long before the ground-breaking, '80s blockbuster Crisis on Infinite Earths, there existed a world where a boy was transported on a subway car to a wizard living at the fulcrum of time and bestowed the Wisdom of Solomon, the Strength of Hercules, the Stamina of Atlas, the Power of Zeus, the Courage of Achilles and the Speed of Mercury when he speaks the magic work, "SHAZAM!!"

Join us as we celebrate a return to the streets of Fawcett City as they were imagined by C.C. Beck in 1941, a story so rich its popularity at one point eclipsed even that of the Man of Steel, with Convergence's Earth S #1 written by Jeff Parker (Agents of Atlas, Aquaman) and illustrated by Evan "Doc" Shaner (Flash Gordon, Buddy Cops)!

What will the Big Red Cheese, Mary Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr.,and even Black Adam do when their idyllic homeworld is infringed upon by Mark Waid, Brian Augustyn Mike Mignola and P. Craig Russell's Gotham by Gaslight!

Acme First Look #384 for 3.18.15

Feeling kind of overwhelmed this morning with Free Comic Book Day preparation, but one thing I don't have to worry about is this year's poster, done by the magnificent Emi Lenox three weeks before her deadline! We'll have hi-res version available for download, three-color screen-printed prints and a brand new Acme t-shirt with the design over the next few weeks, but I just couldn't wait to share!
