After a bit of a hiatus I’m back and just in time. As of this writing I am going to be seeing Shazam in theatres (I’ll do a review of that too) and what better way to celebrate than reviewing the newest issue of the comic book of the same name?!
“Shazam and the Seven Magiclands”continues as Billy Batson and the other foster kids are lost in the dangerous Wildlands! A realm where animals walk like humans…and where humans live in zoos! When Freddie and Darla are captured and paraded around like oddities, it’s up to Billy and the others to rescue them from the greedy Crocodile Men! Plus, the shocking ending to issue #1 could up-end Billy’s new family…or make it stronger than ever.
So, after the crazy ending of the prior issue, the Shazam family are split up across some of the different magiclands. At the same time we are re-introduced to a proper version of Talkin Tawny as well. What happens here? Are things progressing beyond a snails pass? Eeehhh…well, yes and no. Is it still a fun read? HELL YEAH!
