Billy Batson and the Magic of SHAZAM TP – This trade collects the first six issues of the ongoing series. This volume introduces eleven-year-old Billy Batson, who has been given an amazing gift. When he says the word SHAZAM, he turns into the superhero Captain Marvel. Billy’s got his hands full though when a new student transfers to his school. Theo Adam, Billy’s greatest foe, has an alter ego of his own, Black Adam. If only he could remember the secret work to transform. Captain Marvel has been a staple in kid’s comics for years. This reboot bring him back to the core audience that enjoyed him so much and does so again.

Thor and the Warriors Four #2 – I missed this last month, but it’s never too late to find a new all ages series! The Power Pack are on a mission to find the Mighty Thor. Only he can help them get the magic golden apples that will save their grandmother’s life. In the first issue, they met up with Frog Thor and the Pet Avengers to find a way to Asgard. In this issue, they reach the land of the Norse gods, and join Thor in a battle against Dark Dwarves. The Power Pack mini-series’ have been praised for being a true all ages title that can appeal to kids and adults alike, and this new series seems to be keeping that streak going.
