    Seriously, if you aren't reading Black Adam, what the hell's wrong with you? I can't think of a single reason for you not to be reading this book. This isn't a random fanboy musing or "oh this is my favourite character" speil. This is fact. Read this book. Go now. The rest of the reviews will be here when you get back. Read Full Review

    In previous reviews, I've always referred to Peter Tomasi as "editor-turned-writer". For now on though, I'll just use the term "writer", since he has more than proven that he has the chops to do this gig full-time. He does a remarkable job of keeping Teth-Adam in a perpetual state of what I like to call controlled-chaos. There's never a calm moment for him, always on the verge of exploding at any second. He also occasionally incorporates parts of Adam's character/personality before everything went straight to hell. Adam will still show honorable traits, but only in the same way that is honorable to save someone from a burning house that you set on fire. Having such a nuanced portrayal of the character is what's going to keep him from sinking back to the status he possessed before his rise to fame/infamy. Read Full Review
