“Black Adam and Isis” part 1 and a “Faces of Evil” issue! The new Justice Society regroups just in time to face one of their greatest and most personal enemies – Black Adam! The sorcerer Felix Faust has imprisoned the soul of Isis, Black Adam's deceased wife. But the Black Marvel just figured that out, and nothing will save Faust from his wrath — nothing except maybe the Justice Society of America. And everybody will be in for a surprise when they discover how Isis has changed since her death at the hands of the Four Horsemen. Will she be a friend to the world – or will she be its destruction?

BONUS REVIEW by GARY OWENS
I admit I like Black Adam as a character. An amoral guy who follows his own ruthless code of justice, he’s a solid three-dimensional person in an industry not always known for fleshing out its villains. And Black Adam plays a big part of this story, as he gets his love life going again, and worries about peace on Earth. And the JSA? Mired in the aftermath of the Gog events, they reassess their own group, and where they want to go. Geoff Johns does another fine job at scripting, with solid artwork from Ordway. I enjoyed the narrowed scope of the team…and the cover kicks. The JSA keeps on rockin’.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
