Maybe my favorite on-going title. Great character work and a solid, clever plot that deftly balances Golden Age superheroes with New Age struggles. It makes the '90s flashbacks feel like the '40s but it works. This is a big improvement over the first volume; now that the character s...

One of the best ongoing comic series, winner of the 2017 Eisner award for best ongoing series, based in part on the trust they had that this team would create a great story. Lemire seems increasingly to bring together two things he loves: 1) Realistic, character-driven stories based in the bleak...

An almost Twilight Zone continuation of interpersonal drama, sharp dialog, black humor, and the increasingly exciting mystery of why the inhabitants of Black Hammer Farm can’t leave post-Crisis. The artwork is shared by David Rubin, whose cleaner style accommodates the vintage tone.

I enjoyed this second volume of Black Hammer even better than the great 1st volume! An unexpected visitor from the outside world has appeared on the farm, not only sparking a bit of hope for escape in our heroes but also sparking old memories. Similar to the first installment, it's structured by...

I love how happy this depressing story makes me.
Holy shit. Talk about not catching a break. I mean really, Lemire, would it kill ya to just throw one of these characters a bone?
Black Hammer is one of my pulls that I get really excited for each month. Within these first two volumes, I have grown t...

Things are moving along at a decent pace. The newcomer who showed up at the end of the previous volume brings news of the outside world. The back cover copy claims that she, “... awakens new hope in the marooned heroes and they make a new attempt to escape their strange prison.” That's not really...
