    Priest and the rest of the creative team forBlack Adam #2 once again brought their A-game. The book looks beautiful and it reads like a "smart man's comic. Priest writes with a sense of purpose and direction and it's obvious he's got a plan. Frankly, I'm completely on board for the ride. Read Full Review

    This is a superhero story without all the pompous mess; a thriller with ample heart; and an HBO-esque drama with some comic book-style silliness. It's a damn good story, and you'd be wise to join the fray before things truly take off. Read Full Review

    Two issues in, the story has taken multiple left-field terms that leave it feeling completely unpredictable. That makes it a mixed bag, but also one of the most fascinating books in DC's lineup right now. Read Full Review

    Christopher Priest takes some big narrative gambles in Black Adam #2, ones that will have readers checking for the release date of the maxi-series third issue. If the authors decisions have some readers apprehensive about the future of Black Adam, they can take solace in the fact that his sprawling Deathstroke run is one of the best antihero tales ever told. Through two issues, Black Adam is no guarantee for similar results, but has planted the seeds for what should be a memorable story. Read Full Review

    Black Adam #2 has some major developments that will impact at least the next few issues. The new character Malik is a fun character to read, a brilliant young medical student who refuses to take any garbage from anyone. I only hope he encounters Batman in the future and gives Batman an earful of attitude. That would be fun to see! Read Full Review

    While I'm not loving this series yet.... or as much as I wanted to when it was announced, there is still room to improve from what we get this issue and the idea that maybe our new character Malik may not be as annoying going forward...... maybe, which is a win for me. The art is great and I'm intrigued by some things in this issue, even though there isn't a lot going on in this issue overall. Read Full Review
