Sometimes when my interest in a book is flagging, I think about who I’d really like to be reading.
Case in point: Billy Batson and the Power of SHAZAM! picked up right where Jeff Smith left it. Mike Kunkle did good work, but it was irregular in schedule. DC replaced him and now it’s serviceable but unmemorable. Which got me to thinking about who could do the title justice. The answer: Mark Crilley.
Akiko was consistenly awesome. From the insanely detailed backgrounds with elegant character design to the whimsical writing, the book screamed the sensibility that the Marvel Family deserves. Think about it and you’ll know it’s true.
Separated at birth, I tells ya!
I’ve got others, but for right now what are your dream teams?
