    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Mar 27, 2019

    The world continues to grow ever so large. This ambitious tale expands with every new issue and mini-series still to come. Lemire and Ormston have indeed worked together and created something magical that will stand the test of time. Akin to a 90s Vertigo series, this title ascends time and supplants itself into the source wall of comics as a whole. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 27, 2019

    The pacing for this storyline is pretty solid as I can imagine it going a lot longer already, yet we're getting some very good movement forward for it. Lucy as the linchpin isn't a surprise as she was the catalyst for change at the farm as well and having Talky aware means he's able to tweak and nudge things quickly already. I really liked what we're getting from Mark since it's taking him out of the usual environs and expanding more on his whole home, which what little we got before was always interesting to see. I also really like how Lucy and Talky interact and just how her curiosity can't stop her from tugging at things and figuring out what's going on. It's a solid installment all around and I just love how Ormston handles all the various environments, particularly the Martian side for Mark. Read Full Review

    While not the best issue so far from this series, a solid ‘gap’ issue that was necessary to move the story along.

    My deep love of everything Jeff Lemire and company has done with the Black Hammerverse is well documented. I have raved about the series inprint and on podcasts,and it is one of the few titles that I will purchase sight-unseen. Even the worst single issues have been entertaining and intriguing. This issue however felt like a necessary evil, having to provide a lot of exposition and very little in the way of action or narrative - taken as an individual dose it comes up weak.

    While Lucy, Abe, and Mark are stuck in a bland alternate reality where superheroes only exist in the pages of comic books (I know more
