Black Adam by Christopher Priest and Rafa Sandoval with Painted Covers by Irvin Rodriguez

With a movie coming, Black Adam is getting a new comic series set to launch June 21st. Black Adam is written by Christopher Priest, with art by Rafa Sandoval, and covers by Irvin Rodriguez.

There is no forgiveness for Black Adam. This is the reality Teth-Adam, immortal man of indomitable will, must face when he discovers he has been infected with an incurable plague destroying his immortality. Haunted by the specter of centuries of dark deeds, Black Adam transfers his powers to a worthy successor who will redeem Adam’s legacy and defend their ancestral homeland of Kahndaq, only to subsequently become mystically “handcuffed” to him when Adam’s plague is arrested, giving birth to perhaps the most volatile and dysfunctional super-team in DC history!

Black Adam #1 features open to order variant covers by Rafa Sandoval, Mikel Janin, and Lucio Parrillo, a 1:25 variant by Crystal Kung, 1:50 variant by Cully Hamner, 1:100 foil variant by Lucio Parrillo, and team variant cover by Travis Mercer and Danny Miki.
