DC is set to republish the fan-fave title in One of fandom’s most beloved titles of the last 30 years is set to be reprinted in hardcover in — Jerry Ordway’s The Power of Shazam!. The series, which ran from to , remains one of the most cherished portraits of the original Captain Marvel and his Fawcett family.

      The book contained the names of everyone in the company and their professional history (AWOLs, work habits, promotions, etc.). The book passed from first sergeant to first sergeant, staying within the company and providing the unit with a historical document.

Again Humphrey's outgoing and unencumbered novel is shaped by the quality of life he reflects -- this part of the world is still wide open even if cotton country is changing.
