for I am the wizard Shazam

I've had Superman Shazam 1 for about a month, but it took until now to read it. I kept putting it off thinking it wasn't going to thrill me. I'm not bowled over, but am interested enough in the storyline to give it a try for #2 (was out this week).

Captain Marvel and Superman join forces at the end of #1. One set of villians are from the fossil fuel industry, very timely these days. Judd Winicks writing could be dramatic "Fate is an emotionless beast, as well as an inexhaustible foe" or silly, with both 'crud' and 'iron butt' thrown in. Joshua Middleton has that retro superhero stylizing to the art.
