    1 thought on “JSA, Vol. 8: Black Reign”

    1. The Justice Society stories don’t seem to be as widely read as some of the other titles in the DC Universe, yet they often showcase important events affecting DC continuity. In this instance, the Khandaq takeover by Black Adam. The JSA stories are a bit more serious than, say, Justice League stories. Characters actually die here.The Black Reign sequence, collected here, deals not only with the actual takeover but also with the aftermath, as his former JSA colleagues gather together to confront [...]

    2. Former JSA members are allied with Black Adam who is now against the JSA as he tries to liberate his home country, Kahndaq. Interesting ending.Not sure why Hawkman is with the JSA and not the JLA but there's some History in there somewhere.The overall political issue was presented better than I thought as the JSA tends to be myopic in their black and white thinkingTWORK: B; STORY/PLOTTING: B to B plus; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B to B plus; JSA MYTHOLOGY: B plus; ACTION SCENES: B plus; OVERALL GRADE: [...]

    3. This was another random pull from the library book shelves. It was a time that I'd read about in some of the other graphic novels that I'd read, a time when Black Adam brings to him some of the other heroes who were tired of being reactive instead of proactive, including Atom Smasher. Their first order of business is to take back Black Adam's home country, Kahndaq. But the JSA doesn't agree with Black Adam's methods and want to try to bring their errant friends home.Black Adam is one of my favor [...]

    4. Aside from the creepy not-quiteAlex Ross covers, this might be the best JSA story yet. Black Adam and his unnamed team (they do use the word justice a lot, though) take over his native Kahndaq, and the JSA, led by an angry Hawkman, fly in to stop him. The crux of the story is the moral dilemma of how far heroes should use their powers--if they can stop supervillains, why not stop tyrannical rulers? How much does might make right?Beyond that theme, Geoff Johns adds great character and plot points [...]

    5. The Black Adam / Atom Smasher / Khandaq story arc excellently executes some hefty, important themes like heritage, responsibility, and idolization. And it does it in a way I think only comic books could. This arc made Atom Smasher one of my favorite characters in comics.

    6. Another solid adventure story, with some interesting perspective on vengeance and right as well as some meaningful repercussions.

    7. One of the better of the JSA 'stories with a message about how super heroes would operate in the real world'. Not thrilled with Black Adam lecturing the heroes, but the action scenes are good.

    8. Con las ediciones de ECC de JSA me pasa una cosa curiosa, no me cuadran nunca los tomos estadounidenses con los tomos de aquí. De cualquier forma, hay algo que tengo claro. Sigue siendo una lectura absolutamente genial. El sexto tomo de JSA de Geoff Johns que publica ECC trae la novela gráfica JSA/JLA: Virtud y Vicio, números muy especiales con historias de Acción de Gracias y Navidad de la JSA y la saga Reino Oscuro, en la que se cruzaron las colecciones JSA y Hawkman, ambas en manos de Geo [...]

    9. The basic premise is that Black Adam and his cadre of not-quite-heroes-connected to the JSA unilaterally attack the nation of Ir er, KAHNDaq and liberate it from its despotic ruler. Hawkman takes over the JSA to go in and convince Adam to stand down, but unsurprisingly, a super-powered fight erupts.The analogies here are painfully obvious, but they present the issues with nuance. In the end, it doesn't seem like anyone is quite right or wrong. Is Black Adam wrong to want to free his homeland? Is [...]

    10. The story of Black Reign was good, but it's conclusion was a bit abrupt. The art in this one was somewhat hit or miss. Some pages looked beautiful, while others looked utterly abysmal. That is just an unfortunate downside on an otherwise great book. However, the JSA is great to read and this one is no different. There's love, heartache, loss, confusion, and triumph. There's a lot to take in here, and it is certainly worth a read.

    11. I love the golden age superheroes from DC and the new JSA brings these original heroes back into the modern age along with their legacy namesakes. Well above average art and plot keep these 70 year old comic characters interesting and entertaining. Very recommended

    12. It's not the first time the whole "why don't superheroes go rogue & use their powers to crush evil regimes?" question has been asked but this particular take on that storyline is well-written and manages to have a few surprises to the twists & turns of the plot.

    13. What a very good JSA story.History plus background information.Stargirl like two boys.Black Adam This guy must have been some kind of hero in his day.
