The heroes of Spiral City have hung up their costumes and adapted to life in the sleepy town that they now call home-though some call it a prison. Instead of facing unearthly monsters and galactic threats, they deal with vengeful exes, misunderstandings, and hungry farm animals. As Abraham Slam wonders if he's hit his expiration date, a new threat emerges in Rockwood that will keep him on his toes.
"Lemire, Ormston, and Stewart are doing something so special here and every comic book reader should be taking notice." -Geeked Out Nation

    Overall, you can't go wrong with Black Hammer. It's one of the best comics being published today. This issue contains enough surprises to keep day one readers satisfied, yet it is written in such a way that new readers shouldn't have any trouble catching up. All that, and it is topped off with a cliffhanger. Lemire and company are reminding me of what it was like when you couldn't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    The mystery deepens, the characters face tragedy, and we get a Liefeld tribute variant cover that sums up the 90s in a much better proportioned image. Read Full Review

    Overall, Black Hammer #10 is an intriguing and compelling issue. There are multiple things unfolding, all of which feel like they are building towards a narrative development or plot twist. I find that the characters are all going through some interesting changes, learning more about who they are and responding to these discoveries. I'm looking forward to when the next issue comes out, where we unearth what Madame Dragonfly is up to. Read Full Review

    This series has both spoofed and paid loving having homage to many eras of the comic book industry. It was only a matter of time before Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston got around to lampooning the excesses of '90s superhero comics. Read Full Review

    Black Hammer reveals more but my wariness as to what's true and what's deception keeps me from going all in on any particular theory. That makes it a whole lot easier to just enjoy the ride and I'm definitely getting to do that with this installment. I loved the material in the past with the Y-Force but also really dug what we get from Earl and Lucy as that seems like the piece that will blow everything up if it's left to fester too awful long. The reveals are coming in more and more and this installment features some fantastic work from Dean Ormston, especially the flashback with the monster du jour and how the Y-Force kids are handled. Very good stuff all around. Read Full Review
