Writer Geoff Johns announced at the Geoff Johns Spotlight panel during San Diego Comic-Con that he would be writing a new Shazam! series for DC. The new series would continue the backup story he started back in 2012 during his run on Justice League in the New 52 years.

The upcoming Shazam! title will feature the main members of the Shazam Family -- Billy Batson (Captain Marvel), Freddy Freeman (Captain Marvel Jr.), and Mary Batson (Mary Marvel) -- plus the extended family of Eugene Choi, Pedro Peña, and Darla Dudley. The latter three were introduced during the Flashpoint event and were eventually given a portion of Captain Marvel's power by Billy. In the new series:

"The Shazam family will try to unlock the secrets of the Rock of Eternity and take its cues from classics like The Phantom Tollbooth."


The book will also have appearances by recognizable guests:

"The book will feature classic villains like Mister Mind and will feature an appearance by the classic Shazam supporting character, the anthropomorphic tiger Tawky Tawny."


Joining Johns on the book will be his collaborator from his Justice Society of America days, artist Dale Eaglesham. Shazam! will bring the thunder November 21, just in time for a small collection for trade when the movie arrives April 2019.
