Not long ago, I described the 4 issue mini-series I’m working on as “Shazam: Year One”, but that’s misleading. Shazam: Monster Society of Evil isn’t really a “Year One” project as much as it’s a remake of a nearly legendary comic book serial from the early 1940’s. "Captain Marvel and the Monster Society of Evil" ran in monthly installments from 1943 to 1945 in Captain Marvel Adventures #22 – #46.
It was the first really long story in comic books, and it was full of cliff hangers and secret messages that could be read only if you had a Secret Decoder Ring. At the heart of the Monster Society are the monsters, of course, and my favorites from the original serial were the alligator people.
In the original, they were crocodile men, but because I love Albert from POGO, I made them alligator men.
Here's a couple panels from MSoE #1.
Yes, I know I misspelled savior in the first panel. I'll fix it!
