[baseball] sweet lou

Hey, I read a book about wizards this weekend too.

Well, there was a wizard.

Shazam: The Monster Society of Evil #4 came out last week so I re-read the series yesterday for full gratification of the conclusion of the adventures of Captain Marvel, Mary Marvel, and Talky Tawny.

Final verdict: cute, cute, cute, with a side helping of Captain Marvel punching giant robots and the back covers fitting together in a really neat image that pretty much shows you all you need to know about the series and Jeff Smith's fantastic art. Okay, well, there's this too--

Captain Marvel: he does it for justice, but hot dogs too.

Like with any good story, I absolutely hate putting it on my bookshelf once I'm done. It's almost a crime to put away something that has taken me on an adventure, abandoning it until who knows when. So I'm not going to do that this time. I've decided I'm loaning this one out so it can be enjoyed further. octopedingenue? autophanous? hecatehatesthat? scoured? Bueller?

On a related topic, there's stuff I feel like giving away permanently. Collapse )

...this has all been a rather embarrassing trip through fandom memory lane. Oh my. First come, first serve. Have at it!
