Now, imagine the scene, it’s been at least five weeks since yours truly has darkened the doorstep of my local comic-book emporium due to a month long country wide lockdown in the UK, and so, upon setting foot in my dream laden store of choice (dream for me, absolute nightmare for my wallet and bank account!) I am confronted with a legendary landslide of a pull list, this peerless pile was so large I assumed we’d entered into an eclipse, as the sun itself was blocked by this mammoth mountain of marvellous manuscripts!! Of course, me being me, and not satisfied with this crushing cavalcade of comic coolness,I dangerously (again, for my weeping wallet and bawling bank account) and passionately peruse the shelves to add yet more terrific tomes to this overtly overwhelming onslaught of comics, already large enough to cause the world to spin off its axis, when I spot the impeccable illustration residing on this months DCEASED: Dead Planet  #6.

Instantly falling in love with the astonishing artwork, I couldn’t help but add this to the already precarious pull list. Based upon the peerless posters for DC’s live action version of Shazam, but replacing Billy Batson with Mary Marvel (okay, okay, she’s technically known as Mary Shazam now!), a character I love, this vaunted variant by the bombastic Ben Oliver was fervently fitted into a frame and placed promptly into the Precinct’s colossally cavernous Comic Crypts.

“The remaining heroes of the DC Universe are stuck between hell and a hard place! With the Justice League racing against the clock to create a cure, the cruel masters of the southern garden are determined to wipe all anti-life from the planet. And, just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse… the war to save the Earth takes a devilishly new direction, Trigon is coming to end the world, as hell is long overdue its payment in souls!”

DCEASED: Dead Planet #6 is available at your local comic-book emporium right now!
