The Big Red Cheese

When I was in NC for Xmas last weekend, I dropped by my favorite used bookstore and found a copy of DC's SHAZAM! Archives Vol. 1 in pretty good shape for just fifteen bucks! It's kinda rough, corny stuff early on, and I imagine the later volumes have much better stories, but C.C. Beck, who drew the strip, was pretty dynamite from the get-go. Inspired, I drew this up a couple days ago while waiting in line at the bank.

Man, I love Shazam!

I used to watch the cartoon when I was a little rugrat. At the time, Gatorade made a chewing gum with a lightning bolt on the package. I'd eat it and yell 'Shazam!'
