    Anyone else follow this mini-series through to the final issue? I thought it was great! And Adam's discovery of the changed word was pretty fun.

    Yeah please give us a recap of the whole series Ogami. The art in this series just turned me off from the whole thing.

    Overall a very good series and really gives Black Adam a good driving background for when he comes back.

    A lot of tragedy and he genuinely did want to be a good person in the end. Shows what fear can do.

    Yep. Fitting, since it came from Captain Marvel.

    Y'know, with the whole Faust thing, I thought they might leave an openning to bring back Elongated Man. They almost did, but I'm glad they didn't.

    The wikipedia recap is here:

    I loved the art pretty much all the way through. Teth was my fave character coming out of 52 and I thought he was very well handled in this mini-series. Crazy, drunk with power, but still holding onto nobility. Shakespearean.
