Thanks for pointing this out, it's not something I was aware of, more than likely due to it being a Johnny DC title but I'll be checking it out.


A writer at CBR has written a ridiculously scathing review of the issue: http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2008/07/03/billy-batson-and-the-magic-of-shazam-or-comics-are-for-kids/

What bothers me is not so much that the writer thinks kids wouldn't like this , but he thinks kids shouldn't like this.

I would have preferred something closer to Adventures in the DC Universe (some interesting Shazam! stories there), but I'll pick it up when I go this weekend and keep an open mind. I can see where the difference can be a bit jarring (he seems to be a big fan of the last series, which I avoided since that was way too much to pay for that comic), but that doesn't mean it won't be good.

Hey, wait a minute!! I wear red tennis shoes all the time!!

But then again, rumors of my grown-uppedness have always been highly exaggerated...


Wonderful first issue; I'm definitely picking this up on a regular basis.
