Wonder Woman and Shazam Take a Stand in The Four Issue Mini-Series From G. Willow Wilson and Cian Tormey

Wonder Woman #797 and #798 Set Up The Princess of Themyscira’s Story in Dawn of DC

Two months weren’t large enough to contain all of the explosive action of Lazarus Planet. Chaos has been brewing in the world of the Gods and now Shazam and Wonder Woman are involved! 

Arriving in comic shops this March from superstar writer G. Willow Wilson (Poison Ivy) and artist Cian Tormey (Superman: Son of Kal-El), Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods is a four issue bi-weekly miniseries that pits the Gods of the DC Universe against the Shazam family and Wonder Woman. But for how long can they fight against the ones that gave them their powers in the first place?

“I’m excited for readers to see what we’ve been cooking up–old favorite characters, new favorite characters, and team-ups you’ve never seen before are all coming your way,” said writer G. Willow Wilson. “Diana will be tested in ways she’s never been tested before, and find new allies in unexpected places. There are some twists and reveals that I guarantee will have you jumping out of your chair.” 

Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods takes place immediately after the events of Lazarus Planet. The gods of the Multiverse have decided to take down the heroes they once called champions and the world they’ve sworn to protect. For years the gods sat idle atop their mountains as their legends faded into obscurity along with their bodies. Now is their time to remind the selfish mortals of their existence and take back the world with something more powerful than belief…fear. Only the brave heroes Wonder Woman and Shazam stand in their way, but will their combined powers be enough?

“I am incredibly excited to get to work with G. Willow Wilson. I have been a fan of her work for years now and I couldn’t have chosen a more exciting book to work together on than Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods,” said Artist Cian Tormey. “The story is going to feature things that I’ve never even thought about drawing before, so I hope everyone is ready for what we have planned!”
