26 Jul Issue #7 – “Higher Power”
In this issue we talk spiritual characters in DC Comics. Not just magic users, but specifically characters connected to the power of God or demons. But first we preach all that is holy in DC news. Shazam starting production, Gotham’s new poster, and just the tip of the iceberg that is SDCC.
We also hear from our disciples with questions about Etrigan The Demon, The Phantom Stranger, Pandora, where spiritual powers come from, and whether or not the DC Universe is inherently Christian.
