Shazam! Monster Society of Evil Paperback on sale Wednesday

Blog entry by Jeff

The softcover edition of Shazam! Monster Society of Evil will be In comic book stores this Wednesday. Hooray! I love this book!

I’m happy to say that the paperback version of my Shazam book Monster Society  of Evil will be in comic shops on March 4th. It’s beautifully printed, although a bit smaller than the deluxe hardcover that came out for x-mas 2007 (That book was oversized, and this one is standard DC trade collection size).

On the plus side, it is cheaper, $19.99; only $13.59 on Amazon where it is available for pre-order!
