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?
