That's not saying much currently, he seems to have hit a real slump when it comes to new ideas. I'm almost starting to think that he peaked with his Flash run and JSA, with a mini upswing in GL. The Cap he wrote for JSA was far, far better than this, and there were things about the Ordway iteration that I didn't care for.
And I'd still put it at the bottom of the pile, there is literally nothing good about it. The writing is singularly awful.
I guess I can hold out hope that I'll see Marvel do something decent with Miracleman/Marvelman as this is just absolute crap.
I'm starting to think you peaked during the Trayvon Martin thread.
Seriously though, I get that Shazam isn't your cup of tea, but how exactly is Billy a douche bag? Johns tries to acknowledge that pure good Billy isn't a believable concept, sure his embers of good line is throwaway cheese but at least Johns has got the balls to try something new with the character that isn't another nostalgic fanwank rehash.
What would you want to see that hasn't already been done in Power of Shazam or Magic of Shazam series?
