  1. I’m so glad you’re doing justice to the Shazam character through these covers. ^-^

  2. Still wish DC could call him Captain Marvel. They did even in the 70s while the comic book was called Shazam! Oh well.

    • They CAN call him Captain Marvel. They did in Convergence. It’s just that the whole world now associates the word with Marvel with another film franchise.

          • Yeah, I mean, I get it from a marketing standpoint. But it’s just another unfortunate turn for a star-crossed character. The thing is, there are a lot of people who think of him as Shazam anyway and that’s part of what drove it. It’s sort of like Frankenstein’s monster being called Frankenstein.

  3. Nice! I would add Masters #23 – one of the few Mac Raboy covers to feature Captain Marvel. Yes, I refuse to call him Shazam – he was born Captain Marvel and will remain Captain Marvel, no what the Evil Mouse Corporation says.
