It was the greatest superhero event of all time, a multiversal crisis. Black Hammer, Abraham Slam, Golden Gail, Barbalien, Colonel Weird, and even Madame Dragonfly-they united to take down Anti-God, the ultimate evil, on the streets of Spiral City.
For ten years, the former heroes have been living in exile. But a new arrival from the main timeline brought new hope. And maybe, finally, it's time for them to relaunch . . .

    Black Hammer has delighted me for pretty much every issue in its run because I'm thoroughly enjoying its character and story but also the pacing of it. That aspect is what really helps to draw me into it like a really good novel would as opposed to how most, but certainly not all, comics are done these days. The reveals here are really nicely done even if fairly well telegraphed for a bit but just seeing it all come together provides for the right swell of feelings. And a huge part of that is just the way Dean Ormston pulls it all together. I usually talk about the art a bit more and it's definitely great here, especially with what we get from Lucy, but the combination of everything in this installment just had me more focused on the story itself. I definitely need to find more of his work to check out beyond this series. Read Full Review
