    Shazam #4 is a satisfying conclusion to Tim Sheridan's story that sets up some fascinating story possibilities for upcoming stories for Billy and the Teen Titans. I am confident that the Shazam mythos is in good hands with Sheridan. Read Full Review

    Shazam is getting folded back into Teen Titans Academy, but that feels like a disservice to this creative team thats made this spotlight on Shazam worth continuing to an ongoing series. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Oct 19, 2021

    Shazam#4 is a powerful finale. The most notable feeling regarding this issue is that it does not seem like the end of a series. Instead, it seems to bridge missing gaps in the story before starting another one. With the way that the last scene leaves the characters, a whole new adventure seems underway. Perhaps this was a great way of expanding Billy's storyline within Teen Titans Academy before returning him to the main series. Read Full Review

    Batson's humor and optimism finally get the chance to shine through and what gets teased for Teen Titans Academy sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure what Tim Sheridan knows about DC Comics, but from some of the lines in this book it doesn't appear like much and it's too bad that he decided to do a mini with this character because ultimately the series didn't do anything, explain anything and feels like a real wasted opportunity overall. The are is great and the idea of a de-aged Black Adam is fun but for how it's presented in this book everything just comes off as a big goof. Read Full Review
