10 Best Black Adam and Shazam Comics

Posted on October 17, 2022

Released during the same month as (and overshadowed by) Avengers: Endgame, the first Shazam! film tends to get lost in the shuffle of superhero movies—which is a shame. With a lot of heart and plenty of likable characters, Shazam! stands out among the typical dreariness of recent movies to feature the heroes of DC Comics. With a Black Adam spinoff film starring The Rock on the horizon, one of Shazam’s greatest adversaries will finally be seen on the big screen. Will Black Adam build on the momentum that DC achieved with The Batman or will it be compared to less favorably reviewed films like Suicide Squad or Wonder Woman 1984? Either way, now is the perfect time to explore some of Black Adam and Shazam’s greatest comic book moments. Whether you’re a long-time fan or learning about the characters for the first time, we have plenty of action-packed books to hold you over until Black Adam hits theaters.
