    Black Hammer: Age of Doom #6 does not feel like an exposition issue. It's nicely paced, thanks to the art and lettering, so the info dump doesn't feel laborious. And although it answers most of the questions that have been driving the series, it also opens up a whole new can of worms that'll keep you coming back for more. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Mickey Durkin Sep 22, 2018

    Another fantastic issue of Black Hammer: Age of Doom by Jeff Lemire. As both the series and universe Lemire created begin to open up, the series does not fall flat and lose steam. Rather it ramps up giving readers more hooks and promises of a grandiose story that we are only beginning to understand. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 19, 2018

    Black Hammer has been firing on all cylinders for me since the start and this issue brings a lot of story points full circle. There's a lot of fallout to be dealt with that will take time and potentially the bigger picture itself that could come into play based on the actions taken here. Lemire sets the pace well with a good nod back at first for Lucy's path before making sure the reality of the loss that they're all feeling is made real. Dean Ormston has another great installment here as he captures the pain and heartbreak that Abe's feeling and the anger from Gail within the same page. I can't wait to see what's going to come next.

    AiPT! - Zarik Khan Sep 20, 2018

    The latest installment of the Age of Doom series takes the foot off the gas, but that is (mostly) a good thing. With such a whopper of a reveal, our heroes (and us readers!) need time to process it all and that's exactly what this issue does. However, we should enjoy this respite for as long as we can, because there is absolutely no telling what the next issue is going to have in store as we enter parts completely unknown.

    Questions are finally answered in an issue that is enhanced and hindered by its artwork. Read Full Review

    With a little too much dialogue for my own tastes, I'm still not sold on this title five issues in. Read Full Review
