Johns has done a good job of updating the Shazam family's adventures for modern times. It doesn't feel at all hokey like some of the previous Captain Marvel books. This story about the Magic Lands feels somewhat Oz like. It definitely must have been an inspiration. Johns, of course, manages some surprises. I really like the allusion that the exclamation point in Shazam is really an unnamed 7th power source. I can't wait until he finally deals with that.

The rotating art is very good, although Sc

Collecting the entirety of Geoff Johns' most recent Shazam! series, Shazam! & The Seven Magic Lands pits Billy and his family against the mystery of the titular Magic Lands, as well as Mister Mind and the Monster Society!

Johns knows how to use these characters in a way that will appeal to the old fans and the new. These 12 issues bring a new mystery, old favourites, twists on well established characters, and big superhero battles out the ass. There's a lot packed into this, to the point where it

Goodness gracious... this was phenomenal. The first volume of Shazam by Johns, originally during the New 52, was also incredible. The movie was basically just that graphic novel minus Black Adam. I read the whole thing in one sitting. So when I saw that Johns did a follow-up, I decided to wait it out until the graphic novel came out. And, boy oh boy, I think this was even better than the first run.

Geoff Johns is famous for distilling characters down to one word. Superman is hope, Batman is justi

I read this story as the individual issues were published but also wanted to read the story as a whole. It definitely reads better as a whole, having had gaps between issues due to various reasons (including COVID-19/coronavirus).

There are two things that, for me, kept the book from earning a 5-star rating. These are:

1. The art didn't have consistency. All of the artists used are fantastic, but it would have been nice if Dale Eaglesham -- who was supposed to be the artist on the series -- had do

In the Seven Magic Lands , Billy Batson and his foster siblings return to the Rock of Eternity where their whisked into the seven magic lands and find they've unleashed many dangers on the world that they have to protect the Earth from. Meanwhile, Billy has to deal with teh sudden re-emergence of his father.

This book is epic. Essentially, it collects an entire year...all of Geoff Johns run on the 2018 series and it tells one unified story. It includes visits to Magic Lands, introduces Tawny Tige

Props to Johns for revitalizing Shazam ever since the beginning of the New 52. But, personally, I’ve learned the character doesn’t really work for me. Not Johns’ fault, and the art remains great, but this would have resonated with me much more as a kid than as a 35-year-old. It’s very silly, but has a heart of gold that still shines through.

*I've read A LOT more than I've reviewed, so... time for some knee-jerk reactions.*

I love this take on Billy Batson and the Shazam Family! I enjoyed getting to spend more time with them on this magical adventure that never lost sight of its most important core theme: Family.

Maybe it’s just my love for the character, and Geoff Johns but I thought this was a wonderful magic filled crazy ride.
