Review: Curse Of Shazam, part 10
This is a decent chapter. Gary Frank's art, as usual, is great. The script is better this time, as we get to see more character drama and conflict. Billy questions himself and considers if it would be best for the power to go to someone more competent. The only negative aspect is the presence of Darla, Pedro and Eugene. It's kind of pointless for them to be there as they muddle the picture. As they all descend the stairs to the subway station, I get the bad feeling we may either get the "Captain Planet" aspect of Flashpoint's "Captain Thunder" character, or we will get instant Shazam Family, with Freddy as Kid Shazam, Mary as Shazam Girl, and the other three as Lt. Shazams. This chapter earns a B.
