We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||Superman/ Shazam: Lightning Strikes Twice.|
|Alternate Title:||1) Superman/ Shazam; 2) Superman/ Shazam: Lightning Strikes Twice and Other Stories.|
|Collecting 8 Issues:||Power of Shazam! #20, 46; Superman (1987) #102, 216; Action Comics Annual #4; Action Comics #768, 826; Adventures of Superman #639.|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
I recently presented another Superman/ Shazam TPB idea, "DC Comics Presents: Superman and Shazam!", that covered earlier issues where the two had appeared together. At the time, I found that there was a definite cut-off between the issues in that suggested collection, and the issues in this one, so I decided to split them up. Like the earlier collection, these issues are shown in chronological order, and that's how I'd put them in the collection. I actually think this collection has better sales potential than the DCCP collection, because it pertains to the modern depictions of Superman and Captain Marvel (well, before Freddy Cap, anyway).
It works out nicely that it begins and ends with stories of Captain Marvel fighting an eclipsed Superman, which is why I went with the title Lightning Strikes Twice - the title of the story arc in the last three issues of the collection. Also, Lightning Strikes Twice is a nice "sequel" type of title to the first Superman/ Shazam collection, First Thunder.
If Superman didn't still have his Clark Kent shirt on, Action Comics #826 would be a nice shot for the cover. Power of Shazam covers are always beautiful, but I'd go with #46 over #20, because it is an homage to the cover of Superman #276, where Superman was charging Captain Thunder.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
