Sex Criminal's Chip Zdarsky and Alien 3's Johnnie Christmas team up for the first time with this action-packed Hammerverse special. Before he was trapped with Spiral City's greatest heroes on a mysterious limbo farm, aging hero Abraham Slam found himself already an outcast in his own world. And with the arrival of a belligerent reboot hero named Uncle Slam he finds himself having to put on the old tights again to show that there can be only one Slam in town.

    Getting older is never easy and it's even tougher for Abraham Slam when a young upstart takes on his super hero persona. He can't swing as hard as he used to, but that doesn't mean he's not a hero. Read Full Review
