Comic – Shazam vol1: B

shazam vol1B

Every single thing I knew about Shazam was jammed into this opening collection, Dr. Sivana, The Seven Deadly Sins, Mary Marvel and Marvel Jr. Even Tawny the Tiger! And that overflowing inclusion is the heart of it’s problems, feeling too busy for anything to shine especially the Seven Deadly sins. It introduces two of them individually and then just decides that’s boring and has the rest just show up without any explanation, and merge Captain-Planet-style into a big monster. (Though, admittedly, I did like said monster.) But Black Adam is awesome as always, and the art works well enough.
