One of my favorite recent takes on Captain Marvel was by Grant Morrison and Cameron Stewart in Multiversity called Thunderworld Adventures. It put the Marvels back in their own world where they belong. It reminded me a bit of Alan Moore and Chris Sprouse's Tom Strong only without being straight up pastiche, just harkening back to a much more simple age of comics (without actually being simple at all). That said it still had some modern metatextual sensibilities such as the comics involvement with the other Multiversity comics told through the comics that they were reading within the story (although I guess they were doing that sort of thing in the very first DC multiverse crossovers in the 60's as well). Morrison also threw some Shazam references into his 1996 Vertigo mini-series Flex Mentallo, featuring very early yet spectacular work by Frank Quitely. It's one of my favorite things either of them has ever done.

I remember liking the art on the Thunderworld book. Flex Mentallo was fun.
