Perfect annual. Seriously flawless. Builds onto the story with new plot developments, new character developments, and excellent execution. The method through which Lemire showcased a wide variety of artists without it causing a bump in world immersion was brilliant. I loved this issue so much!

Black Hammer Annual #1

By: Jeff Lemire, Dustin Nguyen
Released: Jan 18, 2017

Illustrated by an all-star slate of guest artists, this oversized anthology issue features five Black Hammer stories from Jeff Lemire, each focusing on one of the stranded heroes. See how Dustin Nguyen, Emi Lenox, Nate Powell, Matt Kindt, and Ray Fawkes take on tales about Abraham Slam, Golden Gail, Colonel Weird, Barbalien, and Madame Dragonfly.

GOOOOOOOSH I love this world so much. Each issue adds more layers of mystery while delivering bits of answers to previous puzzles. Furthermore the character development has far exceeded my unreasonably high expectations leaving me simply shocked that more people aren't reading this.

Black Hammer #6

By: Jeff Lemire, Dean Ormston
Released: Dec 21, 2016

Madame Dragonfly has been harboring dark secrets for hundreds of years, keeping them locked up in the mysterious Cabin of Horrors. Now that her cabin is trapped on Black Hammer Farm, the only secrets she can collect are the broken hearts of small-town folk. But the arrival of a new visitor to the farm will change everything.

As Lemire introduces more details into the characters we've come to love, he expertly weaves in additional mystery at the same time. This masterful writing continues to leave me desperate for the next issue.

Of the exiled heroes, only Colonel Weird can leave the mysterious farm where they've spent the last ten years. But the confusion of the Para-Zone may hamper their escape more than it helps!

Such a wonderful story. Would never have expected to fall for such an eclectic group of heroes. If you enjoy mystery, drama, and obscenely lovable characters, do NOT miss this!

Far too many stretches being made in these later issues. I know that might sound absurd given the acceptance of a world in which all animals suddenly communicate, but there still needs to be coherence within the character's actions. I'm finding less and less of that as these issues progress.

No no no. Okay, I'm going to have to give some spoilers to properly critique this: I realize that we are in a universe where animals have gained human level consciousness and speech, but why the hell does a lammergeier spit fire and/or acid? They have a highly acid stomach, however so do most animals, yet none spit fire. And the human-suit worn by the animals? Are they Muppets now? This is just ut more
