Shazarro was created when Mister Mxyzptlk extracted him from the demented imagination of Bizarro. This inner "Bizarroland" is populated by manifestations of the monster's fractured and distorted understanding of the world around him. Mxyzptlk found Bizarro's mental rendering of Shazam, stole his secret word, and bestowed it upon young Freddie Dingus–truly, the biggest shithead on earth.
I decided to use today's illustration to loop back to one of my favorite pieces and hit it with some long-overdue color. I used watercolor (as I typically do) and went for a washed-out bubblegum palette.
Shazarro is a twisted and inverted version of Shazam. I drew this one while writing a saga in my head (and making a lot of lightning noises and onomatopoeia in my office).
This is Superman's fault. He put me here.
