A very well written issue! Johns' has definitely set this arc up as the possible story to adapt in the Shazam sequel, but that doesn't hinder from the story. The Magiclands have a lot of lore that goes into them and Johns is slowly exploring them equally. Can't wait for next month's issue!

Shazam! #5

By: Geoff Johns, Dale Eaglesham
Released: May 8, 2019

In the latest chapter of "Shazam and the Seven Magic Lands," the kids visit the Gamelands, a colorful world of races and games where all that matters are your high scores! But as good as Pedro and Eugene are with their arcade cred, can they score high enough to survive it?

This seemed like a bit of a filler issue, but honestly, it was so well-written that I don't even care! If anything, it established a deeper relationship between the ring and Hal that goes deeper than what we've ever seen before. On top of that, the art by Liam Sharpe is always a win to see! I LOVED this issue. Probably my favorite of this entire run!

This issue was great! As a manga fan, I really lived the Dragon Ball reference similar art style! Heck, even the Thunderbolt Club may be a reference to the Red Ribbon Army! This was truly a fun issue!

Dial H For Hero #2

It must have been quite a difficult task. To take a classic heroine with a powerful and well established back story. And to make it so dull. So bloodless. So very average.

Vey disappointing, and further evidence that DC have no idea when it comes to Aquaman and Mera.

You do realize that this is apart of DCInk, right? An out of continuity line for younger readers.

A pretty solid end to this first arc with mysteries and wonder still to be explored. The next arc definitely catches my interest and I can't want to keep going.

Hal Jordan's final initiation test to join the Blackstars? Kill Adam Strange!

this is so frustrating for me. i really wish i was able to enjoy this comic the way that i’d like to be able to.

the art looks really beautiful, the characters look interesting and cool things seem to be happening.
problem is i just can’t mentally process all the information being presented.
i’m not saying the comic is bad. it just wasn’t written for someone like me. more

Although it was kinda predictable as to what Hal was doing, this series has been very good. I understand if some don't like it because of how weird it is, but that's just how Grant Morrison is. His writing is like a tangled set of headphones, slowly, but surely it'll be unraveled. Can't wait for more!

This issue was primarily set up, but I'm liking where Johns is going with the Magiclands and the hinting of a future family member. However, I'm still curious as to what's going on with Billy's birth father. One thing that I am hoping for is whether or not each member of the family has a tie to a specific magicland. Definitely will continue reading!
