Trials of Shazam! #10
AWFUL. This series shouldn't have been much more than 7 issues, and definitely never should have been this late. As it is, the timing really doesn't matter, because this is one of the worst books I've read in a long time. Sure, it's cool that Tawky Tawny turns into a real magical tiger, but then he gets killed? This entire issue is basically Freddy and company trying to prevent a series of murders and always getting there just a bit too late. It's really dumb. This evil Shazam is one of the dumbest ideas ever, especially since she hasn't shown up in the rest of the DCU, which has already moved on, which means that whatever the ultimate outcome of this book will be, its events will remain entirely inconsequential. So, if the writing's not good, the story's not good, and it has zero impact on the rest of the DCU, then why, pray tell, should you read it? Exactly. You shouldn't.
