    As it stands, this is easily hands down the unique and inspired superhero comic published outside of the big two in years, if not ever. Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston continue to weave a truly magnificent journey for this group of heroes and readers alike as they continue to look for a way home. With calls to everything to Warren Ellis himself and The New Gods, this series delivers an unforgettable inside baseball inspired superhero tale for the ages. Read Full Review

    Black Hammer: Age of Doom #8 returns with a slow, quiet issue that showcases just why the series is so lauded. It may not have answered many questions but it made sure the ones it asks are worth our time. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 27, 2019

    Black Hammer gets back on track here but does it in what is a fairly predictable way. There really aren't any surprises here beyond possibly who it is that tries to reconnect with Lucy at the end, and even that was likely to be a very small pool of players. Lemire's script is solid and I like Lucy's tale with what we get but I especially like the Barbalien elements and the exploration of his world a bit. Some of that is through Ormston's art more than the story itself but that piece just clicks wonderfully and Ormstron's work in general is once again fantastic from start to finish. I can't wait to see what's next in this chapter of the series. Read Full Review
