Review: Superman Vs. Shazam!

Superman Vs. Shazam!
Superman Vs. Shazam! by Roy Thomas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fun trade paperback featuring all the one-on-one team-ups of the Man of Steel and the Big Red Cheese. This includes the hard-to-find Limited Collector’s Edition (those huge comics with the pasteboard covers), as well as three issues and an annual of Superman’s team-up title DC Comics Presents.

These are proper old comic stories – lots of action, goofiness, and truth, justice and the American way. You get a quick lesson in Shazam’s history and meet half his proper rogue’s gallery in this volume. Rich Buckler, Dick Giordano, and Gil Kane provide some fantastic artwork for Gerry Conway and Roy Thomas’ tales.

Recommended for the old-school comic book fan!
