Shazam and Books Of Magic End in September From DC Comics

Lucifer has its final issues pulled, to republished as an original graphic novel instead. House Of Whispers had its final issues published digitally instead. Constantine got a very successful relaunch, and the Dreaming is getting something similar. But as of September, DC Comics will publish the final issue of Sandman Presents spinoff The Books Of Magic.

It's not alone, Shazam will also feature its final issue. The book was hit by serious delays through its run, resolicited repeatedly, with the creative teams of Geoff Johns and Dale Eaglesham, and Jeff Loveness and Brandon Peterson muddled up for the final issues, which killed momentum on the title. And it seems, couldn't get past the coronavirus shutdown. Wither way there will suddenly b  a lot less magic ain and around the DC Universe. What magic remains may have to come with a John Constantine scowl.
