BLACK ADAM Cast Members Star in New Cover for the Justice Society Files One-Shots

DC Comics has announced a new series of one-shot comics celebrating The Justice Society ahead of October’s release of BLACK ADAM.



Black Adam - The Justice Society Files: Dr. Fate #1 (DC Comics)

Earlier this week the hierarchy of power in the DC Extended Universe changed with the release of the highly anticipated first trailer for Black Adam.

After 5000 years of imprisonment, Black Adam is ready to impose his unique version of order on the modern world. The only thing standing in his way are the heroes of The Justice Society – Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Cyclone and Atom Smasher.

In the months leading to the films’ release, fans will want to learn all they can about these DC Super Heroes, as well as Teth-Adam, the man who becomes Black Adam, and DC Comics will be on hand to provide that knowledge with Black Adam – The Justice Society Files.

Black Adam – The Justice Society Files are a series of one-shot comic books profiling the members of The Justice Society, their backgrounds, and connections to Black Adam, leading up to the movie. Each issue features a main story by writer Cavan Scott, plus a backup story by Bryan Q. Miller charting the path of Teth-Adam, from slave, to prisoner, to becoming the titular antihero.

The excitement kicks off Tuesday, July 5 with Black Adam – The Justice Society Files: Hawkman #1, on sale at comic book shops and participating digital retailers. Scott is joined by the all-star team of Scot Eaton (penciller), Norm Rapmund (inker) and Andrew Dalhouse (colorist) in this tale of Hawkman, an archeologist who is the reincarnation of an Egyptian prince and the leader of the Justice Society. 

On August 2, Black Adam – The Justice Society Files: Cyclone #1 places DC’s human whirlwind center stage in a story by Cavan Scott, with art by Maria Laura Sanapo and Arif Prianto. Black Adam – The Justice Society Files: Atom Smasher #1 spotlights the size-changing powerhouse of The Justice Society on September 6, written by Scott with art by Travis Mercer and John Kalisz. The series of one-shots concludes October 4 with Black Adam – The Justice Society Files: Doctor Fate #1, in a story by Scott with art by Jesus Merino and Ulises Arreola.

In addition to breathtaking cover art by Kaare Andrews, each issue of Black Adam – The Justice Society Files features a photo variant cover of the actors portraying The Justice Society, in their fantastic movie costumes –Aldis Hodge (Hawkman), Quintessa Swindell (Cyclone), Noah Centineo (Atom Smasher), and Pierce Brosnan (Dr. Fate). Fans can visit their local comic book shop for availability and pre-ordering details.

Warner Bros. Pictures Black Adam debuts exclusively in theaters Friday, October 21, 2022.
