    Black Hammer #6 has opened up even more mystery for us. Something is very wrong and Im curious to find out exactly what it is. The plot thickens even more, as unexpected developments occur resulting in some curious changes to the story. Its all very interesting and Im actually finding it hard to guess what is going to happen, which makes me even more intrigued. Do yourself a favour and grab a copy ASAP and step into Madame Dragonflys Cabin of Horrors. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 21, 2016

    Black Hammer delivers some strong material once again as I'm definitely excited to learn more about Madame Dragonfly and the weirdness behind her story. Each of these characters could easily maintain their own book in this style while exploring their pasts that I'm torn between wanting that and wanting these tighter explorations. There's a lot going on here in exploring the past and how trapped everyone is in different ways and a new arrival is going to shake things up by asking more questions and setting more things askew. I'm excited to see what's going to come next, something few books get me to say these days. Read Full Review

    The Source by SuperHeroStuff - Bruce Cook Jan 16, 2017

    Black Hammer is absolutely my favorite title on the market right now. Lemire is doing some high level meta-writing that continues to entrance me issue after issue. Now, after six spectacular issues, someone else has cleared the breach and we may, finally, find out exactly what type of crisis it was that shunted our heroes to their brave new world.

    The art by Dean Ormston is much darker than previous issues. That darker tone works well for the issue given the dark and tragic nature of Madame Dragonfly's tale. Despite the dark tone, there are a few bright spots in Ormston's art as well. Read Full Review

    This will probably be the last issue for a while and it leaves us with a lot to think about. Overall I've enjoyed this series. It wears its influences on it's sleeve, bouncing from genre to genre in the same way a party host gives guests the full house tour. I feel as though we have now just finished the tour and we're set to spending some time in this world they've made. I'm looking forward to getting comfortable. Read Full Review
