Get ready for Black Adam with the Justice Society Files

The hierarchy of power in the DC Extended Universe changes on October 21, as Warner Bros Pictures highly anticipated film Black Adam debuts exclusively in theaters.

After 5000 years of imprisonment, Black Adam is ready to impose his unique version of order on the modern world. The only thing standing in his way are the heroes of The Justice Society – Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Cyclone and Atom Smasher.

In the months leading to the films’ release, fans will want to learn all they can about these DC Super Heroes, as well as Teth-Adam, the man who becomes Black Adam, and DC will be on hand to provide that knowledge with Black Adam – The Justice Society Files.

Black Adam – The Justice Society Files are a series of one-shot comic books profiling the members of The Justice Society, their backgrounds, and connections to Black Adam, leading up to the movie. Each issue features a main story by writer Cavan Scott, plus a backup story by Bryan Q. Miller charting the path of Teth-Adam, from slave, to prisoner, to becoming the titular antihero.

The excitement kicks off Tuesday, July 5 with Black Adam – The Justice Society Files: Hawkman #1, on sale at comic book shops and participating digital retailers. Scott is joined by the all-star team of Scot Eaton (penciller), Norm Rapmund (inker) and Andrew Dalhouse (colorist) in this tale of Hawkman, an archeologist who is the reincarnation of an Egyptian prince and the leader of the Justice Society. 

On August 2, Black Adam – The Justice Society Files: Cyclone #1 places DC’s human whirlwind center stage in a story by Cavan Scott, with art by Maria Laura Sanapo and Arif PriantoBlack Adam – The Justice Society Files: Atom Smasher #1 spotlights the size-changing powerhouse of The Justice Society on September 6, written by Scott with art by Travis Mercer and John Kalisz. The series of one-shots concludes October 4 with Black Adam – The Justice Society Files: Doctor Fate #1, in a story by Scott with art by Jesus Merino and Ulises Arreola.

In addition to breathtaking cover art by Kaare Andrews, each issue of Black Adam – The Justice Society Files features a photo variant cover of the actors portraying The Justice Society, in their fantastic movie costumes –Aldis Hodge (Hawkman), Quintessa Swindell (Cyclone), Noah Centineo (Atom Smasher), and Pierece Brosnan (Dr. Fate). Fans can visit their local comic book shop for availability and pre-ordering details.

Review: Justice League: Road to Dark Crisis #1

Justice League: Road to Dark Crisis #1

Dark Crisis” is the next DC big event. The Justice League has been seemingly killed leaving a world without them and a new generation of heroes that need to stand up. We know this won’t last long and at the end, hope will win, but the setup is ominous and “epic” in scope. With the League killed in Justice League #75, Justice League: Road to Dark Crisis #1 is the next chapter in the event, leading into its official kick-off the following week. If this one-shot is supposed to get readers excited, it falls very short in achieving that.

Featuring five stories from a wide range of creators, we get everything from a team-up and discussion on hope to some more info on Pariah, and a lead up to what the heroes on Earth will be dealing with. It’s not bad but none of it left me excited to see what’s next. Ironically, the most emotion came from a story involving Hal Jordan, who despite being a classic character was left out of the Justice League being murdered. The stories as a whole go through the motion but generally lack emotion.

The best of the bunch features Pariah as he’s haunted by ghosts in a story that feels like it should feature Scrooge and Christmas. There’s an odd holiday feel to it.

The art is good throughout the comic but, like the stories themselves, never quite deliver a memorable moment. They too feel like it’s going through the motions. There’s far too many moments and panels that get you to pause for the wrong reasons than those that stand out to excite. The highlight for the art is a story involving the new Aquaman and Hal Jordon which has some interesting page layouts and color.

Justice League: Road to Dark Crisis #1 isn’t bad but it also doesn’t get me excited for the major event to come. It feels like an annual that gets released because it’s on the schedule more than anything. While there’s a bit to catch readers up, it doesn’t do a great job explaining what has happened or the looming threat. It also doesn’t quite make it feel like there world is worse off for the Justice League not being there. Overall, things are going fine. That also might be the point. But, if it is, why should we care about what’s to come?
