SHAZAM! (1973) (#1-35) (WITH ONE MAGIC WORD...) #5 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Shazam! (1973) #5
"Be careful what you wish for" is the old familiar warning meant for those whose aspirations exceed their wisdom. In a story of magic and menace, Captain Marvel has to deal with the chaos created when one man's dream of being invisible comes true thanks to an erstwhile leprechaun. Author Elliot S. Maggin teams with artist C.C. Beck to tell the amazing story of "The Man Who Wasn't!"

Then, Sunny (Such a Nice Guy) Sparkle introduces the Big Red Cheese to his nasty cousin Rowdy during a charity paper drive. When one of their contributors gives them the mystic tome titled "The How-To-Do Everything Handbook," Rowdy uses its reality-altering power to make himself invulnerable and super-strong. But his bad behavior proves that might doesn't make right and Captain Marvel has to teach a lesson to "The World's Toughest Guy!" Finally, Captain Marvel Jr. teaches a prizefighter the meaning of humility in a story from Marvel Family #25.
