Love it!  I can't wait!  I'm betting it's going to be as much or more fun than Plastic Man!

I'm dammed pissed at DC. They have screwed the pooch with this character and book. From some rumor mils, fingers seen pointed at Johns, who may be too busy with other media.

I'm 4 months behind on comics, but only 1 issue behind on this one? And number 6 is delayed 3 months? And I'm sorry, not sorry, but this is not very good. I get, I think, that part of the writing is trying to emulate the original writing, where it's for children, and magical and pleasing to read. But they lack of complexity makes it boring. Mary Marvel s utter change bothers me.

I'm just cranky.

Well when it comes to this book and the enjoyment you had for it after the first couple of issues it is understandable

I'm just going to go look and see if Jerry Ordway's 'Power of Shazam!' is available in trade somewhere.

Just bought it on Comixology-and the most recent EAst of West and 2 Descender books.

Also, I have 16 trades in my comixology account to read. Oops!
