In lieu of a sketch today, I've got some designs I was thinking on. Last night after some talk on twitter about which of the Comic Twart guys could/should work on certain books in the big DC relaunch, I scrawled some quick design ideas on my desk for a relaunched Shazam book. Below is a Billy Batson I drew up last night, while above are the revised designs I drew this morning.I tried to keep most of the changes pretty subtle as I don't think there's a whole lot to "fix" on the costume designs. "Mighty Adam" is only seen from the shoulders up because I think he's already got one of the greatest costume designs in comics and would not change a thing. I've got a lot of story ideas to back up the design choices I made here, but I won't unload 'em on you all here. The title is a good example of the kind of thing that sounds great when you're falling asleep. Needless to say, this kind of thing is a lot of fun for me and I hope I get a chance to do this book at some point.
