    This is a standout comic longtime Back Hammer readers will love, but newbies who dabble can enjoy too. As a standalone comic book Colonel Weird: Cosmagog is exceptionally written, plotted, and illustrated. If you're like me and are loving the soon to be finished Skulldigger and Skeleton Boy, you'd do well to jump on board with this new series. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 28, 2020

    Colonel Weird, like all of the characters, played a pivotal role in the main Black Hammer storyline at the farm and really helped to shape how it all happened. Shifting him to his own series is definitely welcome as there's so much to explore here and the first tastes of it definitely has its hooks in me. I really like seeing more of his childhood here, more of his time as the competent/excellent astronaut, but also more of his time post-gateway that changed him. Lemire knows the character well and Crook delivers a gorgeous book from top to bottom with its design and look, making him an excellent partner on the project. It looks fantastic with its detail and the softer palette for the color design that makes it feel like it's from a whole other time. I can't wait to see what's next as the journey gets underway.
