Black Adam is dead, and the Mesopotamian gods of Akkad are having a field day. Are the gods real or are they merely figments of human imagination? Accepting death but denied redemption, Black Adam becomes an ersatz Gilgamesh as he journeys through Akkadian Hell while Malik, his young descendant, goes to extreme and unethical measures to try and revive him, all the while wondering if he should save the life of one of the greatest evils the world has ever known.

    Black Adam #3 continues to be a complicated read. This isn't light reading material for poop sessions. No Black Adam is an interesting examination of one of DC's most complex villains, as it explores questions around science, myth, politics, and more. If you like intellectually stimulating comics, this book is for you. However, if you're looking for a fun punch-'em-up, I suggest you look elsewhere. Read Full Review

    This is an experimental comic, one that seems interested in exploring a lot of deeper questions under the surface of Black Adam's story, and I'm definitely interested to see more. Read Full Review

    The story that took off like a magically-empowered demigod settles into itself. But that change of pace opens up new ways to delve into these dynamic characters. Read Full Review

    While elements of this book are interesting with Black Adam in the underworld, the way that it comes off is really just confusing and goes out of its way to not say anything at all. Yeah, I still enjoy the art a lot but the story just isn't doing it for me yet and I hope that aspect changes as we go along as I was looking forward to this Black Adam maxi-series. Read Full Review
