    Is this the best Black Hammer comic yet? It takes the tropes of Batman and Robin and builds something entirely new and so very fascinating as this mini-series comes to an amazing conclusion. Read Full Review

    Skulldigger and Skeleton Boy ends on a contemplative and strikingly thoughtful high note. It's sad to see the series end, but it goes out on its own terms with a strong commentary on what it means to be a sidekick in a much more brutal superhero world. For that, Lemire and Zonji have exceeded superhero storytelling expectations and solidified this as a must-read for anyone serious about superhero comics. Read Full Review

    SKULLDIGGER AND SKELETON BOY #6has so much going for it. Zonjic's art and colors are gorgeous, and Wands' letters are subtle masterpieces. But Lemire's script just feels a little rushed. We breeze through moments we should live in for a while, as though he's antsy to end the issue. Luckily enough, this series is so fantastic, a rushed ending doesn't ruin it. Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed this series and lament missing the penultimate issue of it. Lemire definitely has a creative world to explore with these characters and so many others that populate his Black Hammer-verse and I'd love to see more of these and others as time goes on. Skulldigger and Skeleton Boy both offer a lot of really good things throughout and a look at something different from the main book. The supporting cast for it was strong as well as it progressed and made things more interesting. And it looks fantastic throughout with what Zonjic delivered in art and color with great layouts and some visually striking moments that really landed well. Read Full Review

    Skulldigger + Skeleton Boy #6 will certainly upset reader expectations, but it does so in a fashion that raises the stakes and offers something much more engaging than yet another celebration of cyclical violence. Read Full Review
