It’s evident from the very first page that Campbell and Shaner are both a perfect fit for Mary Marvel. Campbell has a great voice for a young adult story like this one. Shaner’s art, meanwhile, looks young and modern. But it also captures a bit of that vintage, Golden Age vibe that the Shazam family is so closely identified with.

With the right story (which they may just have…), The New Champion of Shazam! has the potential to be really, really good.

Also, there’s a talking rabbit. Because why the hell not?

Exactly how old is Keli Quintela supposed to be? Her superhero name is Teen Lantern. But, although Andie Tong does a fine job here, she looks like she could be about 10.

Also, I wouldn’t complain at all if they want to team her with Mogo again. Their dynamic was kinda cute.

I give colorist Alex Sinclair so much credit. He gives almost all of his work a truly epic feel. I suspect that comes largely via his association with so many classic stories over the years.
