    The day is saved and everybody gets a happy ending. The characterization throughout these books is tremendous, with well thought out characters and a hell of a world that Jeff Lemire built. Its not the end (I think the Quantum League is still going on), but I have a feeling its the end for these characters (not counting Hammer.) Its been a wonderful ride and this book definitely gets 5 stars. Read Full Review

    If starships on their last voyage can feel like a house with all the children gone, they must not be part of the Hammer-World. In their final voyage (for now), this crew makes a home. One filled with children and life and hope. And only a little regret. Parting with them is such sweet, satisfying sorrow. Read Full Review

    Lemire is so great at making characters human, in helping us feel their pain and identify with them. It is what I have loved about this series from the start. Combined with Ormstons amazing artwork, Stewart's eye-popping colors and more, this book felt like far more of a goodbye than it should. Maybe I am saying that because I am not ready for it to end. Perhaps I am shocked because I know there are big plans for Black Hammer that transcend comics. But I know Lemire has a plan for this all. It is a very fitting end to the current storyline, and I look forward to any new stories we get from the Black Hammer universe. Read Full Review

    It's a good book that Dean Ormston delivers here with the artwork with Dave Stewart and hopefully we'll see some nice oversized high-quality editions over the years to savor and revisit it in. Read Full Review
