    In this issue Jeff Lemire tackles a common philosophical question; are we merely the products of someone else's imagination and what is God? Once again, Lemire is able to seamlessly weave these deep questions into an entertaining and compelling comic book which is a testament to his mastery of this art form. The artwork, shading and coloring in this book are classic and rudimentary giving credence to the idea that this world that Weird finds himself in is one of unfinished thoughts and unrealized creative dreams. In short, the entire book is yet another master class in world building and story telling. Black Hammer continues to be a must read and I can't recommend this issue of Black Hammer highly enough.

    This self-aware issue was only made better by the incredible Colonel Weird, and Rich Tommaso's simple, yet effective, art was a perfect pairing with the tale at hand. Read Full Review

    The two-part arc focusing on Colonel Weird and what happened once the ship left the other space has been a fun little diversion but it's one where I totally understand why it frustrates and annoys a segment of the audience. This one wore a little thin toward the end of it for me but I got the general idea – it just wasn't one that really did much of anything for more. Lemire definitely has fun in playing with these concepts in a way that reminded me of parts of Grant Morrison's Animal Man run while Rich Tommaso delivered some really fun and enjoyable characters, settings, and general weirdness for Colonel Weird to deal with. I'm looking forward to what's next, however. Read Full Review
