: It's part 3 of a 3 parter...I didn't get #18
: or 19 (yet), but I picked up 20 'cause I
: heard Capt Marvel was in it. The issue
: opens with Billy Batson's funeral. He's
: Dead !! I don't know if PLASTIC MAN is
: "in-continuity" with the DCU,
: because it sort of has a "Mad
: Magazine" vibe to it, but Billy is dead
: in this issue, and it references several
: recent developments in DC continuity. The
: issue ends with both Billy and Captain
: Marvel in Heaven (Billy in the Spectre's
: costume) looking at each other. Billy says
: "Shazam", and he and Cap switch
: places on the cloud. Cap says
: "Shazam", and they switch back.
: Very bizarre. By the way, the splash page
: of Billy in the coffin looks very Gil
: Kane-ish. Did anyone read this issue, or
: the entire arc ? I'm assuming it's
: out-of-continuity, but with DC, you never
: know, since they consider
: "continuity" a dirty word.
