Este segundo volumen que sigue las pruebas de Freddy para convertirse en el nuevo Shazam, mejora notablemente con relación a el anterior tomo.

Great story of the passing of the gods powers and gifts to the next mortal to win them. Very good art and plot. Recommended

As one of DC's countless attempts to rework the 1940s legend Captain Marvel, this veers way too far for me to like it as a reboot (Winick's efforts to separate the gods here from the gods of the original series is really forced). In its own right, as a story of some kid undergoing a quest to gain magic powers, it's quite good, particularly Winick's concept of Atlas. Having read the first half when it came out, nice to finally catch the rest.

This book series started out so amazingly, and ended on such a whimper. It was truly disappointing.
