About the Whiz Comics:
In 1939, Fawcett Publications was trying to capitalize on the ongoing superhero boom spearheaded by characters like Superman and Batman. It was then that writer Bill Parker came up with the idea for a team of superheroes, each possessing the power of a different mythical characters. The idea was eventually modified into a single character with all these powers, and thus Captain Marvel, known later as Shazam, was born. 

The first issue published of Whiz Comics was issue #2, published with a cover-date of Feb. 1940. Fawcett created two black-and-white ashcan #1 issues to solicit advertisers and to secure the copyrights to the material. The two copies were identical but carried different titles: Flash Comics and Thrill Comics; the Captain Marvel character was called "Captain Thunder" in a near-identical story. When Fawcett went to press with the magazine, the first issue was retitled as Whiz Comics, a name inspired by the company's bawdy humor magazine, Captain Billy's Whiz Bang. Further complicating matters, when they got to issue #3, Fawcett, through either mistake or intent, used the number twice. Thus, if viewed from the perspective of the second #3 (and, therefore, all the issues that followed it), Whiz #2 unofficially became Whiz #1.

About the Artist:
Jaime Coker grew up in Hawaii, where he met his wife and creative partner Trisha. He is a self taught artist, best known for his pop culture mash ups and 'Villainous Villain' series. His art, like his personality, is often vibrant and engaging, celebrating a genuine passion for fandom.
