Will U Buy It? (taken from WUBI #50)

11/14/12: In the November 2012 Previews, DC has solicited the Superman vs. Shazam! TP, using the cover of All-New Collector's Edition #58 as the solicitation image (and presumably, the cover of the TPB). It is collecting: All-New Collector's Edition #C-58, DC Comics Presents #33-34, 49, and DC Comics Presents Annual #3!

Now, if you check out the comments, you'll see that @Captainthunder: & @PowerHerc: were very helpful with this WUBI, suggesting some issues to add, and some issues to leave out. I didn't listen to all of the suggestions (some, but not all), but DC did. They left out Shazam #15, but Cap' points out that while Lex Luthor appears in that issue, Superman does not. I think Superman #276 would have been a cool inclusion, but it's not actually Captain Marvel that Superman's fighting there, so okay, that's understandable. They also didn't include All-Star Squadron #36-37. That's a little disappointing, but it's still okay. That Supes & Marvel aren't exactly the same two as in the DC Comics Presents stories - they're from another Earth, during World War II. So in that regard, it makes sense not to include them. For the purposes of this WUBI, I was gathering any Supes/Marvel fight or team-up I could find, regardless of Earth or era.

Very cool collection, and I am excited to see it coming out! It's being solicited as $19.99, and will be in glorious full color! Yay, DC! So NOW, the question is:

Will you buy it?

3/13/13: It's here! It's here! It's here! Superman vs. Shazam!, and it. is. awesome! Considering how I gushed about this in the "Will You Buy It?" section, there's not a whole lot more to say about it. As you can see, they went with the current DC icon instead of the classic DC bullet. It does indeed use the cover to All-New Collector's Edition #C-58, and the recolor looks great! And BEST, it is in spectacular FULL COLOR! How freakin' sweet is that?! So, what's the ruling? Did you buy it?

Did U Buy It? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
