Prince Street News: What's So Stinky About the Big Red Cheese?

The current BACK ISSUE! (#93) is an ALL-CAPTAINS issue, featuring stories on Captains Mar-Vell, Carrot, Storm, Universe, Victory, and of course, the original Captain Marvel, now unfortunately known as his magic word, Shazam! Prince Street News takes a look at the mostly-unsuccessful efforts to make the character (once the most popular superhero on the newsstands) fit into modern comic book contexts, from the Bronze Age through today (there's also a Blondie joke of which I'm rather proud).

Next up! A look at Batman's outfits. It's more complicated than you think.
