Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up—The subtitle of this collection is somewhat misleading as only the first half of the book involves the titular characters. It is a transitional volume of sorts, marking the end of Johns's celebrated 26-issue run with an exciting conclusion to a Shazam family crisis. Ordway's short, two-issue story that follows serves as little more than filler, as Bill Willingham (of Fables fame) would take over in issue 29, continuing as the book's writer to the present. Black Adam is also misleading in its indication that it is a self-contained story arc, when it is actually the fifth volume of the current incarnation of Justice Society. Considering Johns's reputation, it's important to have the previous four volumes in the series for the sake of continuity. While perhaps not as central a series to the DC Universe as the "Batman" or "Green Lantern" titles, JSA has a rich cast of unique, often underrated superheroes—and with a capable writer like Johns at the helm, the series gives even the most well-known characters' books a serious run for their money.—Jason M. Poole, Webster Public Library, NY
