By uttering a single magic word young Billy Batson transforms himself into the world's mightiest mortal, Captain Marvel. The acronym of the first letters of the names of the six elders who train Billy with their respective special gifts: Solomon, wisdom; Hercules, strength; Atlas, stamina; Zeus, power; Achilles, courage; and Mercury, speed, in a word...SHAZAM! Now, the entire series is available in this 3-disc set featuring every exciting episode of this classic television show!
In late May we passed along the word
that the Warner Archive is preparing an MOD (manufacture on demand) DVD release for Shazam! - The Complete Series
at last. That info was bolstered a couple of weeks ago with news
that the Shazam!
DVDs, along with other releases like Gene Roddenberry's The Lieutenant
, would get sneak-previewed at this year's San Diego Comic Con (which starts tomorrow...and Warner's giving away an incredible Shazam! poster
out there! I wish so badly I could go and get one, but alas I'm unable to attend).
Today, just a short time ago, the Warner Archive has begun pre-selling Shazam! - The Complete Series
on DVD via their studio's WBshop online store (see button link below). The 3-disc set is priced at $34.95 SRP, and will begin shipping to U.S. customers on September 18th
. Customers and fans outside of the United States shouldn't give up, though, because the Amazon CreateSpace MOD program will begin making the same title available globally just a few weeks afterward, so stay tuned for that! In the meantime, here's the package art (and disc art) for this live-action series that was produced by Filmation:
