Shazam!

One of the books I picked up this week was the new Shazam book created by Jeff Smith, who previously created Bone. It just struck me as a really, really natural combination of a character and a creator -- Captain Marvel is a character that is iconic, but has never really fit into the traditional modern comic universe.

This new book has some wonderful art and looks like it'll be a lot of fun. It's a first issue -- but I think it'll have a lot of potential. And it looks like Jeff understands the Captain Marvel character in a real back-to-basics way that is frequently missed when he's presented just as a childish Superman.

It's good fun, and I can't wait to see future issues.
