DC Comics and Dark Horse Comics present the ultimate superhero crossover event of 2019!  

Dropped into the DC universe, the Black Hammer heroes find themselves captured by members of the Justice League who blame them for the cosmic switch-and on the Black Hammer Farm, the displaced DC heroes search for answers and a way out of their bucolic prison. But Colonel Weird and the Green Lantern discover that the solution to this riddle may not be so simple.

"I didn't think something could be thrilling and sad at the same time but now there's Black Hammer proving me wrong. Amazing, just flat-out amazing."-Patton Oswalt

    I await the next issue with high anticipation. While Black Hammer/Justice League #3 gave us some answers, we still need many more before the whole story's made clear. I personally want to know who the strange man in the bowler hat is, and just what his intentions are. What are your thoughts readers? Do you have a favorite moment yet? Let us know in the comments and we'll see you again for issue #4! Read Full Review

    Many of the characters and concepts in Lemire's Black Hammer Universe are homages to or pastiches of DC's iconic properties, and I love that Lemire has this opportunity to bring the two universes together for this once in a lifetime event. This miniseries is a true delight for those who love comics. Read Full Review

    Lemire never wastes a page, and I suspect this will fit into the overall tapestry of the world of Black Hammer, making it a must-read. Read Full Review

    Great Michael Walsh art and strong characterization leads this blockbuster mashup. Essential for Black Hammer fans, it may also work as a nice intro to the universe for DC fans tempted to explore another book. Black Hammer Justice League #3 is filled with humor and heartbreak in equal measure, confidently told throughout. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 11, 2019

    The buildup continue to go well and each storyline is moving at its own pace and needs. I do like the Black Hammer side more because it's fun to see them out of the farm and their world completely while dealing with unexpected people in the form of the League. The League members on the farm get a decent but of time but it's Stewart and Colonel Weird that are really moving things along and hopefully setting into position to really help. Lemire and Walsh deliver a strong book overall with some creative bits and some fun humor that definitely delights, especially when it comes to Gail. It's an intriguing crossover event that avoids most of the usual cliches of them and gives us a good look at characters crossing worlds. Read Full Review

    The issue does some interesting things to help deepen the world Lemire has built over the past couple of years but even then, the book still has a looming feeling of inconsequential storytelling. Read Full Review
