    Shazam might not be the most high stakes book at DC but it doesn't insult readers' intelligence or deride them for enjoying these characters. This is definitely a top-tier DC title now and well worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Oct 3, 2023

    Shazam! #4 is a weird, wiley, wacky issue that's tons of fun but takes itself seriously enough to deliver an exciting adventure. Waid's homage to Silver Age storytelling is on-point, and Mora's art is perfect. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 6, 2023

    Even if I tire of DC's back-and-forth "no continuity" policies, this book is entertaining and may be the first time the comic version resembles the films. Worth a look. Read Full Review
