‘Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods’ to pit the Shazam family and Wonder Woman against the Gods of the DC universe.

Press Release

DC Comics has revealed a four-issue miniseries is spinning out of Lazarus Planet as the event kicks off the Dawn of DC yearlong storytelling initiative. The new bi-weekly miniseries is called Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods and is written by G. Willow Wilson with art by Cian Tormey. The story pits the Gods of the DC Universe against the Shazam family and Wonder Woman. It launches in comic shops on March 14th.

“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.”

Wait, what’s Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods about?

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!”

Check out the covers for the Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods #1 below.

DC Comics has also revealed solicitation text and cover art for Lazarus Planet: Revenge of the Gods and Wonder Woman #797.

The gods have leveled up, and Shazam is no match for them! After Wonder Woman’s changing of sides to save her Amazon sisters, Billy must use his quickly fading wisdom of Solomon to formulate a plan to stop his world’s destruction. Little does he know a secret ally awaits him in Olympus…but how will he make it there? Sounds like a job for Wonder Girl!

Two months weren’t enough to contain all of the explosive action of the DC Universe Lazarus Planet event as it kicks off DC’s yearlong storytelling initiative, Dawn of DC. 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.
