    As for the team, they start to dig where Lucy had left off, trying to find a way out of their plain, boring, simple living prison. We also learn a secret from Gail that blurs the lines between hero and villain but also makes the pint-sized hero feel that much more human. Lemire and company continue to show why Black Hammer is the best superhero book on the shelves today. With the core title, the recently wrapped up Sherlock Frankenstein mini-series, and the amazing Doctor Star series currently running, Black Hammer is showing the big two publishers how to do a superhero book the right way. I have been a fan since issue #1 and will continue to be as long as issues pack this level of quality every month. If you havent checked out Black Hammer, you are missing out on something fantastic.

    As always this knock-out team of Lemire, Ormston, Stewart and Klein deliver an intriguing slice of life within the Black Hammer continuity. It's been amazing to watch this series grow and its intricacy develop. Another strong issue. Read Full Review

    One of the best series of last year continues to be consistent in it's craftmanship even if things feel a tad disconnected at the start. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 21, 2018

    The art is very specific and peculiar, but it fits the tone and characters perfectly, providing a story that seems like an artifact of a lost universe. Read Full Review

    Mysteries and minor dramas among the primary cast continue to captivate, but take up too little of this issue for it not to feel distracted and wandering in its approach to the narrative. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 27, 2018

    Black Hammer: Age of Doom #2 is still a rough experience. The story is livelier in this issue, but its events are strange and disjointed. The main plot falls quickly to the background, and Black Hammers half of the plot is more fun than it is compelling are important feeling. I can recommend this issue, but its far from required reading. Feel free to check it out, though. Read Full Review
