    Hammer of Doom is a fun book that is equal parts tragedy, humour, and thoughtful deconstruction of the comic book art form. Knowing Lemire's love for the DCU, I knew that this crossover event would be something special, and Lemire is fulfilling my expectations admirably. Read Full Review

    The story is smart and fresh. Lemire really knows what he is doing here. So does artist Michael Walsh. He is one of the best in the business. This book is a delight. I'm sad that it's only five issues for this story. Read Full Review

    Im stoked to learn how Barry sacrificed himself, what Cyborgs theories lead to for the rest of the story and more hilarious moments between the dysfunctional Black Hammer and the complex but mostly stable League members. Whatever crazy cosmic multiverse shenanigans ensue next I'm onboard for this wild ride. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Kendra Hale Aug 25, 2019

    This team has done amazing things so far with this series, the slow build is agonizing but the attention to detail in Black Hammer/Justice League #2 is killer. The way each character is brought to life in words and form is sheer perfection, and I cannot wait to find out just what happened to cause one Leaguer to be missing from the story completely. Jeff Lemire and Michael Walsh have done an astounding job of making an entertaining comic, and I look forward to what's still to come. Read Full Review

    One of the most ambitious comic book series in the past decade and proof that there is still room for originality in the superhero genre. Read Full Review

    A strong, character-driven narrative that shows the pain people trying to be something they aren't go through. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 14, 2019

    The second issue of the series works better for me than the first since that had to deal with setup and there was some uncertainty with it as to the approach that Jeff Lemire was taking. I do like what's going on here and am getting into the groove of it well now that the interactions are picking up. Read Full Review
