Billy Batson and the Magic of SHAZAM! #20

I don't read the solicitations any more, too depressing, but I suspect that Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! is coming to an end. Twists are coming thick and fast--Tawky Tawny is permanently an anthropomorphic tiger, Freddy Freeman has dropped the Black Adam Junior identity for Captain Marvel Junior, Black Adam and the wizard Shazam are both back from limbo, and all of the Marvel Family's enemies have teamed up for a battle royale, as seen on the cover here....

At the Rock of Eternity, Black Adam confronts the good Marvels (Mary still in her normal identity,) but Cap is having a bit of a confidence problem, and hesitates.

Black Adam takes advantage of the distraction to head off to Fawcett City and rendezvous with the other villains. Mary, Junior and Tawny take off, but Shazam holds Cap back for a quick pep talk and a mysterious trump card just in case.

By the time Billy arrives in Fawcett City, the others are on the ropes from the multiple villains. Although Captain Marvel does well at first, he's soon pushed down by King Kull.

But what might look like an overwhelming army of evil...

...Is actually a target-rich environment.

The Marvel Family polishes off all the lesser villains, but now it's time for Black Adam, who's finally gotten back his full power!

I keep meaning to buy this series but keep forgetting. Anyone know how many (if any) trades for it are out so far?
