    All I can say after this issue is wow"just wow. Two years' worth of build up has finally paid off, and now I have no idea what's going to happen next and I love it. This is what comics should be all about. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Mickey Durkin Aug 24, 2018

    Overall this issue is a winner and hopefully signals a turning point in the series where we start getting answers. But I am just along for the ride, and what a hell of a ride it has been. The issue illustrates Jeff Lemire's ability as a writer drawing on all of his influences. The art is solid like always and shines in the coloring work by Dave Stewart and Dean Ormston's paneling and how it paces out the story. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 22, 2018

    Black Hammer: Age of Doom continues to give me exactly what I was looking for in it. While it could have drawn things out a bit more before getting to the reveal I'm glad it happened here because it throws everything into uncertainty and the way the core group reacts to what happened, the why of it, and what they may have just lost could be some pretty great material ahead. With so much strong work released so far from Lemire and Ormston, I can't wait to see where they go next. Read Full Review

    While everything eventually comes to a head, it's a little too late to make much sense at all. Read Full Review
