Despite having a title that sounds like a 1970s Doug Henning TV special, Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! (let’s just call it Shazam!, shall we?) is actually a cute little book.
Written, drawn, colored, stapled and printed by Mike Kunkel, the singular force behind the robust and heartwarming Herobear and the Kid of a couple years back, this version of Shazam! looks like just the thing to wash away the painful attempts to update the Captain and company over the last couple of years (especially Mary… poor, poor Mary…). Why no one thought of doing Shazam! as a kid’s book before just boggles my little mind.
