Description

Geoff Johns hangs around long enough to collaborate with Jerry Ordway in the Black Adam and Isis arc . Fully written and pencilled by Jerry Ordway, the two-part ghost story in issues and 28 isn't bad, but it feels like a filler.

Geoff Johns hangs around long enough to collaborate with Jerry Ordway in the Black Adam and Isis arc, although, much like Johns seemed to have been indulging Alex Ross in the Thy Kingdom Come arc, here he seems to be humoring Jerry Ordway.

Written by Geoff Johns, Jerry Ordway, and Matthew Sturges, Justice Society of America: Black Adam .

Written by Geoff Johns, Jerry Ordway, and Matthew Sturges, Justice Society of America: Black Adam and Isis is a DC Comics superhero collection. Following the events of Justice Society of America: Thy Kingdom Come-Book 3, the collection features art by Jerry Ordway, Dale Eaglesham, and Fernando Pasarin. Labeled Black Adam and Isis but turns out it’s just 3 issue story arc which really needed to be told in 6 with what happens with the Rock of Eternity etc. Farewell issue for Stargirls birthday was awesome. Heartfelt funny and hits the tone of what the JSA is all about.

The new Justice Society regroups just in time to face one of their greatest and most personal enemies: Black Adam! And in a special standalone issue, Geoff Johns presents a day-in-the-life story of the JSA titled "Black Adam Ruined My Birthday" in which the team celebrates the birthday of on. .

Unfortunately I was disappointed in Justice Society of America: Black Adam and Isis . Would that the entire book were more like "Black Adam Ruined My Birthday," Johns' closing Justice Society story. Justice Society, even more than JSA, has been as much about superheroics as about the quiet moments that happen in between world-conquering villains. Jerry Ordway both contributes to Johns' revisiting the pages of Ordway's Power of Shazam, and takes over writing and drawing chores in two transitional issues before the new Justice Society team arrives.

Justice Society of America: Black Adam and Isis.

The world's first super-team returns in this volume collecting the first 4 issues of the JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA series, written by Geoff Johns (52, GREEN LANTERN, ACTION COMICS) with stunning art by Dale Eaglesham (VILLAINS UNITED) and Art Thibert (OUTSIDERS) and a cover by Alex Ross (JUSTICE, KINGDOM COME)! . Justice Society of America: Black Adam and Isis. That all leads to an all-new two-parter by classic creator Jerry Ordway as a villain from the JSA's WWII days returns! Collecting issues

Artist: Dale Eaglesham. Publication date: February 2007 - October 2011.

Artist: Dale Eaglesham. Determined to rebuild the JSA, founding members Green Lantern, Flash and Wildcat initiate a stunning recruitment program, tracking the bloodlines of heroes across the world and bringing in Starman, Damage, Liberty Belle and more! Meet new legacies and solve a mystery stretching into the far future! Issue(s).

The Story: Black Adam finally finds Isis who returns much different than she was before. My Thoughts:This trade collects the last few issues of Geoff Johns run on the series. Jerry Ordway steps in and writes the following issues which didn't impress me very much. He also assumes artist duties and perhaps this series lacked the normal standard of quality because he was simply trying to do too much.

The original superhero team, the Justice Society of America, are Earth's mightiest defenders, whose ranks include the Flash, Green Lantern, Power Girl, and Hawkgirl! Still recovering from the team's split over following Gog, the Justice Society move from crisis to crisis, as Black Adam and his newly-resurrected wife, Isis, resurface with vengeance in mind. Troubled team member Atom Smasher may be the only one who car reach the tormented Adam - but can he do it before the crazed Isis and her mighty husband lay waste to the people responsible for Isis' murder? Superstar writer Geoff Johns ("52") and artist Dale Eaglesham ("Villains United") continue the epic saga in the annals of one of the world's greatest super-teams.

The first three chapters (of six) of this JSA compilation concern Black Adam's quest to restore Isis to life. Things don't quite go according to plan, and Billy and Mary Batson become Black Marvels themselves! I'm a fan of Captain Marvel, so I was especially interested in this story arc. It is an exciting, entertaining, and sad story, but unfortunately it's also a story that remains incomplete, to some extent. Presumably, the dangling threads are sewn up in a Captain Marvel comic, but not in JSA.
My favorite story in this set, and perhaps my favorite JSA story of all, is number four, "Happy Birthday, Stargirl!". This is a delightful one-off story with lots of humor and feeling. There's no action, per se, howbeit lots of interest. Starman is a hoot in this comedy -- who knew he was such a fan of ice cream? In my opinion, the book is worthy getting just for this birthday story.
The final two chapters in the book involve a dark spirit that invades JSA headquarters and even takes possession of one of its members. This is an exciting and well-told tale.
The artwork and storytelling throughout "Black Adam and Isis" is excellent. The book fails to get 5 stars from me only because of the somewhat incomplete Marvel arc.

Disappointed with the lack of team cohesion during the went-on-forever Gog/Magog/Kingdom Come snoozefest, the core members of the JSA are deliberating whether the roster should be downsized. Meanwhile, we catch up with what's going on with young Billy Batson (who is now the guardian wizard-in-residence on the Rock of Eternity) and also with Black Adam and his efforts to rescue his resurrected wife Isis from the sicko hands of Felix Faust. Faust gets what's coming to him, and Black Adam and Isis reunite and turn their attention to amassing their power base. They start out by attempting to steal the Rock of Eternity's mystical mojo. Isis inadvertently teleports Billy Batson to Fawcett City and, with the writers recalling whose series this is, the JSA swoops in to help the now powerless Billy.

JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA: BLACK ADAM AND ISIS collects issues #23-28 as the ongoing series goes thru its changing of the guard. Geoff Johns hangs around long enough to collaborate with Jerry Ordway in the Black Adam and Isis arc, although, much like Johns seemed to have been indulging Alex Ross in the Thy Kingdom Come arc, here he seems to be humoring Jerry Ordway. The Black Adam & Isis plot, as other folks have already mentioned, feels like a pick up of plot threads from 52 and the BLACK ADAM: THE DARK AGE mini-series, from COUNTDOWN TO FINAL CRISIS to FINAL CRISIS, and even from Ordway's POWER OF SHAZAM! Many pages go by in which the JSA is pretty much relegated to supporting role status.

The now embittered Isis longs to recreate a Black Marvel family which will "destroy the modern worlds and all the sins it festers with." Not too surprisingly, Mary Marvel - plumb loca, pink-haired and gigged out in a black-leather dominatrix outfit - is recruited and the corrosion of her character can't help but still creep me out. A fourth member soon joins the Black Marvels, and the JSAers soon have more than they can handle. Until the inevitable deus ex machina appears, which, by the way, feels rather contrived and threatens to undermine the latest changes in the Marvel family mythos (I'm looking at you, Freddy Freeman).

I don't know that I can pinpoint it all that well, but this arc falls a bit flat for me. I think partly it's because this feels more like a Black Marvels story more so than a JSA story. Also, I wasn't ever down with poor Billy Batson losing his Captain Marvel gig and getting "promoted" as the new wizard languishing on the Rock of Eternity. And I guess I also don't like Isis having become this hardcore scourge of humanity. And, with Atom-Smasher officially regaining membership status, it leaves even less time to focus on the new recruits, who barely get face time in this arc. On the good side, Stargirl is featured a bit and shares a nice moment with Billy Batson, hearkening to their innocent "romance" back in the day when Captain Marvel was a JSAer.

If this had been Geoff Johns' farewell story, I don't know that I would've called it going out on a high. But his swan song, issue #26, turns out to be a terrific little story featuring Stargirl, a character for whom Johns clearly has great affection. No super-villains in this one or world-ending catastrophes, although teenager Courtney Whitmore (a.k.a. Stargirl) does start the story off by wailing: "Black Adam Ruined My Birthday!" This is Geoff Johns' coda and, as the JSA and friends celebrate Courtney's surprise birthday party, we're treated to a series of wonderful little character moments, and we're left with that warm, feel-good sensation. And *that* is going out on a high. My favorite moments have to do with Starman's hilarious concept of "birthday presents" and Courtney's hugging it out with her step-dad - and if you're aware of Courtney and Stripesy's sometimes adversarial relationship, then this is an absolutely emotional scene. Alex Ross's evocative cover also doesn't hurt. Dale Eaglesham's interior art for this issue definitely doesn't hurt. Starman gets in the last word, and it is perfect.

Fully written and pencilled by Jerry Ordway, the two-part ghost story in issues #27 and 28 isn't bad, but it feels like a filler. The JSA confronts the vengeful spirit of a World War 2 supervillain, and, as usual with supernatural activities, the Spectre pokes his pasty white nose in. Trust issues resurface when the JSA's brownstone headquarters in Battery Park is at first alarmingly sealed off by Obsidian and then attacked by a ghost. This is followed by time travel as select members of the JSA are snatched back to 1945 Japan to face retribution. There's a nice twist at the end which almost makes up for the hohumness of the story.

Capping things off is the six-paged backup feature "Origins & Omens," as Scar, the messed-up Guardian of the Universe, casts a dark eye on the JSA and predicts doom and gloom for the team's future. And, apparently suffering from Legion-envy, the JSA decides to expand its roster even more.

I can't wait until Bill Willingham takes over the series. If anyone can revitalize the JSA, it's that dude. Concerning this one, I think that the Black Adam & Isis arc and the WW2 ghost story merit a rating of 3 out of 5 stars, but the inclusion of the Stargirl birthday bash kicks it up to an overall rating of 3.5 stars. Because you can never ever go wrong with having more of Stargirl.

The Black adam arc was pretty good. At the end of it the Marvel Family and the Black Marvel Family changed forever. Things will never bee the same and the JSA is increasing numbers too.

The second part of the book I found refreshing. No Black Adam but the story "Black Adam ruin my birthday" was a breath on fresh air. It made me laugh a lot. Was a really cool short story were you remember that some times the dark sotries (while good) need a little contrast. Thats what it was, a great contrast. A little joy story after all the blackness.

In short, I'm happy to get all the Geoff Jones JSA books, and this last one was pretty good too.

The last few pages, which contains some Blackest Night prologe are quite good too.

It worth it!.

When the Black Marvels are written well they are an enthralling group of characters. Teth Adam in particular is very complex under Johns and the return of Isis adds more interesting depth to his outcome. I really enjoyed this collection and would recommend it if you liked any of his previous JSA volumes or the Black Adam solo mini-series. There are a lot of players involved here so that can make you lost -- it's best if this volume is where you end instead of where you start. The plot will also have a great deal more impact if you are familiar with and attached to these people. While not a must, it helps if you have also read Infinite Crises and 52, since this kind of builds on some events that happened there. Even having read all those, I have not read Captain Marvel, so I was a little confused with some of the recent changes in that mythos. But overall it was well worth the purchase. I am pleased that rather than break up the collections between the end of Geoff Johns' run and the start of Jerry Ordway's, DC included the first few issues of the next storyline here so that you can get a taste of the new creative team. Excellent idea!

JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA: BLACK ADAM AND ISIS collects issues #23-28. I have been reading JSA for years and this is by far the lamest collection of all. This looked to be good with Black Adam and Isis but this is just a short done in 2 issues and then you get to suffer through the most inane writing since Ishtar. If you don't have anything to write about skip a couple of months. They have let flash and the Green Lantern become uninteresting old farts that they should let dye off. Will Star ever be able to grow up or will she be 16 forever, doomed to never have a boy friend.
Great!
