    1. David

      A very fine collection! Reminded me of being a boy and reading my prized 80-Page-Giants that DC issued back in the 1960s. I loved those issues! They were a grab bag of impossible to find stories, often from the Golden Age. They were probably my introduction to DC's Golden Age heroes and it's lesser known elements. What we have here is something like a Deluxe version of the 80-Page-Giants I so loved. Now they're all grown up in hardcover editions with introductions written in the various stages o [...]

      I received this book from the First Reads program in exchange for an honest review.Admittedly I knew very little about Shazam! other than his origin story and his feud with Black Adam before starting this collection, I was excited to see how he would be represented. In all I thought the collection entertaining and enjoyable albeit quite repetitive and lacking in imagination. The original comics were very representative of the comics portrayed in the era and had a very similar feel to early Supe [...]

      I thought about making this one 4 stars (and if I was more unbiased I would), but honestly I just loved it so much I had to go with 5. Captain Marvel is such a fun character and his adventures are zany. Not every story was my favorite (I'm looking at you new 52), but overall it couldn't have been more fun

    4. Adam Graham

      This books collects numerous books through Shazam (Captain Marvel)'s history. The Golden Age section really is a treasure of wonderful firsts and great stories with Captain Marvel's origin story, the first Mary Marvel tale, and the first Marvel family story (with them battling Black Adam in his first appearance.) We also get to see Captain Marvel battle the Earth is a surreal tale, as well as two chapters from the Monster Society of Evil storyline and Captain Marvel taking on the Seven deadly si [...]

      This was a nice collection of the adventures of Captain Marvel, alias Shazam! I enjoyed seeing his original origin, the addition of Captain Marvel, Jr Mary Marvel and the three Lieutenant Marvels to the family and the various attempts to reboot this character (when frankly I didn't see the need to reboot him). Some of the revisions were better than others. I didn't care for the one that made Billy and Mary Batson look like they were 7 years old- bad artwork on that one. On the whole, I enjoyed t [...]

    6. Jessica

      I thoroughly enjoyed reading how Shazam/Captain Marvel has evolved over the decades, as well as how some things have remained the same. Marvel Bunny was cute, and I had no idea He had so many run-ins with Superman! I wish some of the stories presented in this tied in with each other more, but I will just have to find them at some point to read in order more.

    7. Ido

      Shazam is cool and the stories here are very very very good and Shazam a celebration of 75 years is really really good.

    8. Jason

      I found this to be a great overview of Captain Marvel/Shazam (and family) all the way from his original Fawcett/Earth-S version throughout the subsequent DC continuities up through the New 52. Only having a passing familiarity with the character before I'm impressed with how much has been done with the character while keeping the core child-as-adult-bodied-hero idea.

    9. Teddy

      Shazam's one of my favorite heroes so it would make sense I loved this. I loved a lot of these stories, there are so many. I've read a few of them already, and it doesn't include entire stories, but I really liked what was here. There were a few iffy stories, but I didn't mind them. Overall I really enjoyed this book.

    10. Josh

      It was so cool to read the history of Shazam aka Captain Marvel the reprints of old, critical issues was very interesting to read. My son loved it so much he stole it from me and read it first!*I got this book through GoodRead's Giveaways - an excellent source of interesting books!

    11. Dan

      Amazing how sophisticated comic books are nowadays. These stories seem quaint in comparison. Still, it was interesting to see the character evolve over his 75 years
