FIRST LOOK – The Infected: Scarab #1

If you thought that Shazam! would be the only one infected, think again.  What started out in the pages of Batman/Superman continues to expand with The Batman Who Laughs continuing to infect heroes of the DC Universe.  Blue Beetle is the next to fall victim, and you can see it all on November 20th.  First, here's a look at one of the pages from The Infected: Scarab #1.


Now that you have been properly warned, let's take a look:

The Infected: Scarab #1

As you can see, it looks like a pretty gruesome attack.  You can also see from the cover art above that the end result does look pretty amazing.  I'll be very interested to see how much of Blue Beetle will still be in there, personality wise.  We saw Shazam! certainly retain some of his personality, albeit a more evil twist on it.

The Infected: Scarab #1 will be written by Dennis Hopeless Hallum, with art from Freddie E. Williams II and Jeremy Colwell.  You also have the amazing Dave Marquez and Dean White doing the cover.  Today (October 28th) is the final order cutoff, so make sure you let your local comic book shops know that you want your copy so you don't miss out.  Who do you think will be the next to be infected?
