    As I said in the beginning, this series is surprising me. Being a relatively hardcore Captain Marvel fan, I wasn't exactly looking forward to this series. But Winick and Porter have won me over. I can still get "my" Captain Marvel when Jeff Smith's Monster Society of Evil mini-series comes out in a few months. For now, however, this is a very good substitute and an excellent book in its own right. I'm eager to see the future of Cap, Freddy, Billy and all the Gods of Shazam. Read Full Review

    Trials of Shazam #4 was a pretty unexciting read. I just don't find this new world of magic particularly captivating. The trials that Freddy has had to undergo have been lacking in creativity. However, I'm sticking with this series until the end. I hope that Winick can prove me wrong and end up making Trials of Shazam and interesting maxi-series. Read Full Review
