Review: Shazam! #10
Cut to Sivana and Mr Mind at the Rock of Eternity where they succeed in opening the door to the Monsterlands. They enter to recruit what I'm guessing is going to be the New52 Monster Society of Evil. Cut to the Vasquez home for a nice sit-com family dinner scene. Billy takes a plate to (the potentially imposter) Wizard Shazam who is creepily lurking in Billy's bedroom. Billy asks what he did with King Kid. The Wizard replies he sent him back to the Funlands and freed all the adults who will decide what to do. Cut back to Sivana and Mr Mind in the Monsterlands where Mr Mind lectures Sivana on the origins of the Monsterlands, the Rock of Eternity, and the Council of Wizards. Kept prisoner there is Superboy-Prime who vows revenge against Billy Batson. Cut back to Billy who suspects something is not quite right about the Wizard, who later that night neutralizes Daddy Shazam. Geoff Johns' script is slightly better than the previous issue, and the art by Scott Kolins and Dale Eaglesham is more consistent than the previous issue. This issue earns a C.
