Shazam?  
A friend just phoned to point me towards this week's edition of the infamous comic book rumor column Lying in the Gutters...

Click the link there and scroll down...

Recognize that Captain Marvel promo piece?

Some crazy fanboy Photoshopped out my sig and made up a mock promo pic as if it was a real WB animation piece! That's hilarious. I'm flattered and confused at the same time.



The rumor is marked as 'green', meaning it's apparently been confirmed. So strange.

Hey! Does that mean you're working for the WB now?

He better get pencilling. He's got 13 episodes to get done by the end of summer.

Wouldn't it just be hilarious if some sort of comedy of errors caused a Shazam! series to get greenlit?

I would laugh. :P Then I'd ask to touch you so that crazy wacky-mojo might rub off on me. ;)

Wow...I guess you have a "green" thumb!

Yeah, I saw that and laughed and laughed. Can we have a contest to see how many "rumours" we can get into Rich's column?

And people wonder why artists put their website/name and copywrite onto their work when they post it on line.

I'd email Lying in a Gutters and get a retraction just so someone knows it's yours.

I hate to mention it so late but he looks a little.. feminine... in that pose. And with the flowers on his cape and all...

I already told him it was faggy but he didn't beleive me.

If I were you, I'd be pissed about the thievery if it wasn't so damned funny.

On some level maybe I should be ticked but the whole thing is ridiculous. There's no artist credit on a promo image and no person has taken credit for it, it's just been dolled up to look like an official promo piece.

Hell, there's people now arguing on various Capt. Marvel forums whether the style of the 'upcoming show' is good or crappy... it's downright bizarre.

I'm sitting here reading fanboy rage about WB's design decisions and that it's too cartoony/wacky looking for a "Captain Marvel series that respects the character's rich heritage". Some fanboy mocked up this thing and has whipped the others in to a frenzy. It's like watching some kind of National Geographic special on animal attacks.

What's really curious is that, last I heard, a Cap series was impossible. Timm had to practically kill a few people just to get him on JLU those couple of episodes.

"The rumor is marked as 'green', meaning it's apparently been confirmed"

Doesn't mean that.

Amend on the way... the body of the piece (marvellous illustration aside) seems to hold up. Warners pushing for a big Shazam franchise.. expect to see symptoms shortly.

Rich, is that you?

It might be an offshoot of the rumour that Jake Gyllenhaal is being pursued for a Live-Action Captain Marvel movie... But still, weird.

If the WB calls, tho...
