I kind don't like superheroes today. They are too "human" to my taste. Some have alcohol problems, they have financial problems, even sexual problems !!!! it is almost like We need superheroes to save our superheroes. So, I buy this "old stuff", and I love to read and read again. Superman Vs Shazam, making it shorter "Perfection!". Roy Thomas is a fantastic writer and Gil Kane,
Dick Giordano are one of my idols. I miss so much good illustrators. BUY IT!

Superman and Captain Marvel/Shazam live on different Earths, so their paths are not likely to cross...but at times they have crossed. This graphic novel collects five DC story arcs that combine the Big Blue Boy Scout and the Big Red Cheese. All of them are quite entertaining and are sure to please any comic book fan!

The five stories included are:
When Earths Collide (All New Collector's Edition #C-58 - 1978) - An ancient Martian scientist wants to free the ghostly victims of his past by destroying the Earths of Superman and Shazam, and what better way to accomplish his design than by pitting the two superheroes against one another?

Man and Supermavel (DC Comics Presents #33 - 1981) - When Clark Kent turns into Captain Marvel and Billy Batson turns into Superman, they realize that something very strange is going on. Just what is going on, and who is responsible?

The Beast-Man That Shouted "Hate" at the Heart of the U.N. (DC Presents #34 - 1981) - Back in their original forms, the two superheroes find that they are dealing with an alliance of supervillains, and alliance that even they might not be strong enough to overcome!

Superman and Shazam (DC Comics Presents #49 - 1982) - When Superman stops some bad guys in Egypt, he has no idea that he has just strengthened Black Adam. Now, it is up to Superman and Shazam to work together if they are going to shut him down.

With One Magic Word (DC Comics Presents Annual #3 - Dr. Sivana is in Metropolis, but his aspirations go beyond the conquest of one world. Even working together, can the superheroes overcome Captain Sivana?!?

Really wish some DC expert would have written an introduction to these stories. It's a real shame, because a preface would have put some context into these tales written in a less dark, less explicitly violent era.

Anyway, Gerry Conaway and Roy Thomas must have had fun writing these issues. In the tales, the characters are still heroic and say "shucks!" and while I confess the stories are hardly sophisticated (as compared to today's dark and gritty era) and the characters don't really grow and develop over the course of the adventures, the comics are fun.

I miss this era, but I have to confess this is my first time reading about half of these classic stories featuring Superman and his Fawcett comic counterpart, Captain Marvel. In the golden age of comics, the Big Red Cheese's (CM's nickname)sales surpassed those of the Man of Steel's, but after Fawcett went out of business and was subsequently bought out by DC, their characters were absorbed into the current continuity.

The stories are okay, but what really shows up is the excellent artwork, obviously done by people who loved the characters, and the attention paid to their history. Again, credit must be given to Roy Thomas who wrote the stories in this collection.

It was wonderful seeing the beautiful Pre-COIE, seventies Supergirl again. It was great seeing the seventies, boorish Steve Lombard, and seeing Clark Kent wink that knowing wink the DC audience hasn't seen in years just brought a smile to my face that did my heart good.

I will confess the opening stories' villain, Karmang the Martian, seems lame compared to today's Darksaid, Mongul, or Brainiac who seem to be much more violent, much more murderous these days.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After DC finally bought the rights to Captain Marvel, we were treated to various team-ups but the big battle came with one of those huge treasury edition books in the 70s. This reprints that oversized comic, but in standard size. It also includes several other stories as back-ups with each highlighting some meeting later after this main story.

While I understand it would not have been economically feasible to reprint this in the original size (and where would you keep it on your bookshelf anyway, right?), I still miss that feeling of reading this with the pictures gigantic in your hands. Some of the panels lend themselves to that full-page oversized spread. I had actually stumbled across my original copy of this just before the reprint came out. The colors of the reprint are definitely faithful to the original (they even reprint the back cover of the book inside). With the addition of the back-up stories (including one that happened right after this particular story) it's one you need to add to the collection. I just wish DC would consider printing these in their original size as a hardback edition in the future.

Never will forget when i first saw this book wasn't even tall enough to pull it off the shelf when i finally got it Mom said it was time to go so i never even peeked inside. Went back it was all sold out now i own the reprint. Dialogue is cheesy by today's standards and in all fairness the fight was a little one sided not like in the later years where marvel actually poses a problem for big blue and the art also looks a little stiff
what i like about it? Well a fair scrap between two of the greatest heroes, the important lesson about anger it can be lethal and cause serious regrets. Looking at it it sets the bar for the numerous fights that came between these two it was the first. Good to know marvel got better at it he was terrible the first time. If you like the classic tales buy it.If the 80s are a little backward for you then forget it you wont like this book
