The actual meat of the issue is more enjoyable, with Batman coping with a burglary in the Batcave that bodes ill for the entire team and Wonder Woman encouraging Superman towards a more proactive approach to crime-fighting. There's a lot going on here and Johns is no doubt setting things up for the upcoming Trinity War storyline. Thankfully, he does a good job keeping his ducks in a row. I just wish he hadn't bothered with some of the story-lines that do little to develop the already well-established characters.
Ivan Reis continues to flourish as the series' new penciler, despite being somewhat crippled by a team of three inkers. Does the book look bad? No, but you can tell that three different artists were handling the inking duties. There's little sense of continuity and cohesion visually. Any who doubt the power of an inker to completely change the feeling of a penciler's work would do well to check out this issue.
I shan't bother offering my two cents on the Shazam back-up anymore. You all know what I'm going to say at this point and I'm sick of saying it, over and over and over again.. Johns' script is good, but I loathe the new take on Billy Batson, who doesn't feel at all like he should. Gary Frank's art is far better than the story deserves. They had to call this Shazam because this mess sure isn't Captain Marvel. Blah blah yakkity smackity.
