Shazam! 8 - an excellent reprint collection


Because Shazam! 8 (Dec 73) is a 100 page reprint collection I would usually just skip over it. But even I, who am not a big Captain Marvel fan, have to admit that this is a really impressive and well selected collection of stories.  There is a story that recaps the origin of Captain Marvel, the actual origin story for Mary Marvel, tales featuring Captain Marvel Jr, Uncle Dudley, and the three Lieutenant Marvels. The first two Mr. Tawky Tawny stories are part of the book, and the capper is the Marvel Family story that introduces Black Adam, the first and only appearance of that character while being published by Fawcett Comics.
