As David pointed out, Shazam stories also appeared in World's Finest Comics #253-282, and Adventure Comics Digest #491-492 (the main reason I completed my runs of these issues for this period was for the Shazam stories!).

The tally of pages for World's Finest Comics comes to 316, less covers - although if memory serves me correctly, Captain Marvel (or CM Jr., or Mary) appear on either the front or back cover of a number of issues - the total for Adventure Comics Digest is 22 pages, including the two covers, which do feature CM.

Allowing a minimum of 350 pages from these comics - plus the remaining Shazam comics, and other odds and ends (such as the Superman vs. Shazam! tabloid) gives us ample material for an ostensible Showcase Presents: Shazam! Volume 2, without having to resort to post-Crisis stories.

Personally, I prefer the Shazam stories in World's Finest Comics and Adventure Comics Digest to those in their own comic, generally speaking.

I have recently picked up a few 70s Shazam-related comics and love them (many contain Golden Age reprints as well).  E Nelson Bridwell wrote some and Shaffenberger drew some.  What more do you need?

Schaffenberger was one of the great unsung artists I think.  His work on Cap was very fitting and appropriate, I loved his Lois Lane.  His work on Superboy was also very appropriate and enjoyable.  I unfortunately never really appreciated his work on Action and Superman though.  My 1st introduction to his Superman work was in Action when a character named Kar-Bak was introduced (who had an alleged allergic reaction to Superman), and the story included Vartox.  I supposed I just enjoyed Swan's art so much I didn't care for Kurt Schaffenberger on the Superman proper books.  Although I'd take Al Pacino easily.

Yeah, Al Pacino's pencils were okay, but Robert DeNiro's inking was awesome!  Cheesy
