C. C. Beck's Shazam! Guest Appearance

C. C. Beck and Otto Binder were the team that brought us Captain Marvel in Fawcett comics.  Beck was the artist and Binder was the writer - a phenomenal team!  When DC brought Captain Marvel back in the '70s, Beck came back as the principal artist.

In Shazam! #1, Beck drew Binder meeting Billy Batson (you can read about it here).  But I didn't know that in Shazam! #4, Beck drew himself in a brief meeting with Captain Marvel!

Beck had drawn a picture of himself shaking hands with Captain Marvel, but this is the first time that I'm aware of that Beck drew himself into one of Cap's comics!
