Okay, we now have the first chapter of Geoff Johns & Gary Frank's The Curse of Shazam in this week's Justice League #7. What'd you think?
I'm of two minds. On the one hand, 8 pages of introduction isn't really enough to draw any really solid conclusions. All we really get is a Lex Luthor-y Sivana, a dick Billy Batson, and an up-close shot of the wizard's awful teeth... on the other hand, we get a Lex Luthor-y Sivana, a dick Billy Batson, and an up-close shot of the wizard's awful teeth, which doesn't inspire much confidence in me. Making me dislike the main character from the get-go is a risky move, and I worry it's the wrong one. But I feel like I need to give this a little while longer to see if it's something I'll continue with. We'll have to see how it looks next month.
