Convergence: Shazam #1

And now for the final issue of Convergence week 4. It’s ironic that my top three heroes have their Convergence tie-ins in the same week. This issue is brought to us by Jeff Parker with art by Evan Shaner.

This issue takes place in Captain Marvel’s home city of Fawcett City. Billy and the Marvel Family can’t transform so they try to use their radio show to calm the people of the city down. The Marvels also deal with the Monster Society of Evil. Without their powers how will they deal with this threat?

Final Thoughts: This is a great piece of Golden Age nostalgia. The familial ties that I mentioned about Captain Marvel are still here, which is always a highlight. I was a little lost because some of these characters I have never heard of, but a little research helped clear that up. The fight scene against the Monster Society is one of the best in Convergence and I wish it had lasted longer. Also Tawky makes a hero’s arrival and it is amazing.
