Hi I didn't get to read the first two issues. But I did manager to pick up #3 & #4, I wasn't crazy about the art. It just didn't fit the book, or the characters to me. Kinda sick of seeing Superman & Cap ethier trying to kill each other. Or Cap's like this big over grown kid.I don't mind Billy looking up to Superman, but didn't care for how stupid the wizard shazam came across.I'd rather have seen the Scott character survive & Cap not try to kill Sivania. I enjoy seeing Cap a little more guttsy. But don't want it to get out of control, I thought Judd stepped over the boundaries with this. The problem is Dc & other companies are not making comics kid friendly any more.I think it was a big mistake to get rid of the comics code. Update it yes, but to do away with it was stupid. I know I was a kid in the late 60's & early-mid 70's. Yes the world has gotten harsher,the kids aren't kids any more.Because of the teachings about sex,aides, etc in today's scarer & sader world. But Cap is suppose to be the sunshine in the DC universe ,even to Superman.He gives the DC universe optism & hope that everything will work out. To be like the Legion of Superheroes future, not this dark Kingdom Come/end of the world.I enjoy seeing Cap lay down the law, & kick butt as well. But not if he just becomes another Punisher,Wolverine,Batman clone. Like a mindless 2 dimension killing machine.We'll this is just my opion, I,m trying to keep a open mind with the up coming Trails of Shazam. But I,m not crazy about the white hair,lighting streak. Rather see Billy just written older. But then we'll have the dilima, there too. Billy as a adult will o longer have a secret ID. Because he looks just like Cap.Oh we'll Shazam! Mike 669
