    It's laid out well with great artwork and some fantastic designs that have me eager to see what weirdness lies ahead as well. It's a solid start with so much potential in how it draws it all to a close that I'm excited and sad to see it all finally get to this point. Read Full Review

    With all the multiuniversal stories out there these days, you'd think that a creative team as talented as the one behind Black Hammer could come up with something more original. Alas, this latest series in the once-great franchise begins with a sputter because we feel like we've been here before. Read Full Review

    A worthy follow up to the last mainline story. There are a few deep cuts for avid BH fans.
    If you dig BH, you'll like or love it. Lemire always brings the goods.

    I’m a big fan of Jeff Lemire and I’ve heard so many people raving about the Black Hammer saga, so it caught my attention when I saw this series announced.
