    Despite the problems, Shazam is still a fun title to read. If Johns can just get it back on a regular schedule and simplify the plotline a bit, then Shazam could be the great title that the former Captain Marvel deserves. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Sep 25, 2019

    With future solicitations seeming to have this series back on track, the next issue of Doomsday Clock still remains nearly three months away. While hope continues to wane for Johns getting out his scripts on time. As only one chapter remains on the title above, hopefully, the finale will allow for more time between Johns and the Big Red Cheese. Eaglesham and Kolins continue to bring excellent work to this title and help to bring the heart truly to life. Albeit incredibly late, the series continues to bring the heart and fun to the market.

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Sep 27, 2019

    The only real snaffu in the issue when it comes to color is when Darla and Freddie are making their way to the Darklands, she explains that her dress is losing color… yet it’s the same color as previous panels. Small little error, but noticeable. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 25, 2019

    The shift from Dale Eaglesham to Scott Kolins in the back half of the issue is pretty glaring, and while both are talented artists, it breaks up the flow of the issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Sep 25, 2019

    Although the future of this book is up in the air, Geoff Johns continues to write a tantalizing tale while Eaglesham and Kolins work their magic on the page. If Johns doesn't get to close out this arc, it would be a shame. Read Full Review

    Shazam is always a quality read, but the real question is how long the wait will be for next installment. Read Full Review

    Jumping back into the fray, Billy ends up in the Darklands which seems appropriately named and likely where the family may gather together to face their next test. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    As it is, this is still a solid series, but I do wish it's release schedule was more reliable and that it retained a single artist. Read Full Review

    There's still far more good than bad overall and what Shazam! #7 may lack in consistency, it makes up with sincerity. Read Full Review

    Dale Eaglesham's art is amazing this issue, I just wish he would have done the entire thing.  Jumping around with artists and even aspects to this story seems to be this series' thing though and sadly, it's starting to work against it.  I'm not saying that this issue is bad by any means, I just wish it could be more focused because there's not enough time to really enjoy all that Geoff Johns wants to give us.   Read Full Review
