Tuesday Roundup: September 18th

By Tim Beedle Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

With a single word, young Billy Batson gains the power of the gods and becomes the magical superhero known as…let’s say it together now…SHAZAM! And that’s fitting because it would take the strength of Hercules to keep us out of our local comic shop this Wednesday with some of the great comics hitting stands. In addition to this week’s Shazam-focused JUSTICE LEAGUE #0, featuring art by the amazing Gary Frank, we give the ladies of the DC Universe their due, with WONDER WOMAN #0, BATWOMAN #0, SUPERGIRL #0, BIRDS OF PREY #0, CATWOMAN #0 and SWORD OF SORCERY #0, starring the new girl on the NEW 52 block, Amethyst! Be sure to make her (and writer Christy Marx) feel welcome by picking up this week’s debut issue.

 

What? You need further enticing? Then look no further than the list of links below, which contain previews of Sword of Sorcery and all of the other New 52 and Before Watchmen comics coming out on Wednesday.
