      Gravedigger made his debut in Season 3 of Black Lightning. In Black Lightning, Gravedigger is a metahuman, a villain (more of an antagonist, it might be argued) and a member of the Markovian army. At the burial, a book falls from the pocket of the grave digger, The Grave Digger's Handbook. It is Liesel's first theft. The mother and daughter are starving, apparent from their thin bodies and sores on their lips.

      The Grave Digger's Handbook is the first book Liesel steals. It is also the first book she reads. As with all her books, this one is bittersweet. It's bitter due to the fact that she steals the book from the snowy graveyard where her little brother Werner has just been buried. Written with excruciating detail, "The Gravedigger's Daughter" is much more than an exploration of one woman's consciousness. Joyce Carol Oates has crafted a work that explicitly describes violence, directly confronts social injustice and sensitively describes how a thwarted human spirit heals itself.5/5(5).
