Just read an article from Alter Ego Magazine #75 (the Shazam Curse issue, Jan '08) detailing a proposed Shazam series spearheaded by Alex Ross called "Say My Name - Shazam!" I was fairly impressed with a lot of Mr. Ross' ideas for re-vamping the character (certainly better than anything we have going on right now, in my opinion). The most amazing thing was that DC didn't even want to discuss the proposal with him. If that doesn't say something about the lack of respect the Marvel Family gets, I don't know what would. To think that DC wouldn't even entertain an idea by Alex Ross is hard to swallow.
Anybody else read the article? Thoughts?
