Collects #1-4, 2007. Highly Recommended. By Jeff Smith. Introduction by Alex Ross. After Bone, my very favorite work by Jeff Smith.

And a young and very, very wild Mary Marvel, reimagined by Smith. Billy encounters all that and more when the wizard gives him a magic word that transforms him into the world's mightiest mortal. Now, he must use his extraordinary new abilities to face an incoming invasion of alien creatures and to stop mad scientist Dr. Sivana and his Monster Society of Evil from taking over the world!

After Bone, my very favorite work by Jeff Smith.

Acclaimed and award-winning writer and artist Jeff Smith (Bone) brings his talent for crafting stories with adventure, humor and gorgeous artwork as he reimagines Shazam! for a whole new generation of readers.

I really enjoyed this when it first appeared and look forward to reading it again, twelve years later. It's never been easy to bring the humor and good feelings of the original 1940s Captain Marvel into comics again. Beck and DC couldn't do it in the seventies. But I think Jeff Smith comes closest to recapturing the magic.

"Charm. That's a quality that few comics deliver these days...It's not often we see the approach taken to super heroes stripped down to its original skin..Jeff's first project since Bone...delighting Shazam fans like myself...Jeff returned to the roots of this super hero's magic, finding that balance between the child and man." -Alex Ross
