SHAZAM The Golden Age of the World's Mightiest Mortal HC (2010 Abrams) comic books
Written by Chip Kidd. Photography by Geoff Spear. Art by C.C. Beck, Mac Raboy and Jack Kirby.
SHAZAM made his debut in Whiz Comics in 1940, and outsold his biggest competitor, Superman, by 14 million copies a month. Before too long, a variety of merchandise was produced - secret decoders, figurines, buttons, paper rockets, tin toys, puzzles, costumes - and a fan club was created to keep up with the demand.
Seventy years later, an unprecedented assortment of these collectibles are gathered together by award-winning writer/designer Chip Kidd and photographer Geoff Spear. Join Kidd, Spear, and the World's Mightiest Mortal in this first, fully authorized celebration of ephemera, artwork, and rare, one-of-a-kind toys, and recapture the magic that was SHAZAM!
