    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...

    Lucy Weber, The Black Hammer's daughter, starts trying to piece together the mystery of The Farm and the town of Rockwood but someone doesn't want her to find the answers she's looking for... Black Hammer volume 2 has fallen into my hands and it's a whopper. The tale of the Blac...

    I never know what to expect from Black Hammer, and that's largely how I like it. The characters are well developed, complex, and fascinating. I'm really excited to see where this story goes. ...

    WHAT!?!?! JEFF how ya do me like that!?! It has been 10 years in this lil farm town, some of the supes have accepted their fate while others push to find a way out. The two people in question are Col Weird (who saw Talky Walky was about to do something through building probes) and Ma...

    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 volu...

    Book blurb: Once they were heroes. Now, banished from existence by a multiversal crisis, the old champions of Spiral City lead simple lives in a timeless farming town. The thing with people is that you never really know what they'll do in a given situation. In this installment, the ...

    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 str...

    Es díficil ser objetiva con este tomo, porque es una oda a los superhéroes de la golden age. Es ingenua, pero intrigante,  los personajes están muy bien delineados y la parte gráfica está cuidadísima, en especial cuando dibuja David Rubín. Lo otro agradable, es que si bien pode...

    [Read as single issues] With the heroes of Black Hammer firmly established, we can now begin to explore their pasts as they work to escap-Oh, wait, no, they're happy where they are. But someone definitely isn't. Black Hammer's daughter is new in town, and she's not about to let the he...

    The second volume of Black Hammer is very much a middle volume, hampered by the fact that the "shocking" event on the last page is pretty obvious from page 2 or 3. Beyond that, it feels like there's lots of water treading: with the exception of a shocking event early on, then that inev...

    With so many great titles in this comicbook era, it is easy to overlook this genius work written by Jeff Lemire. Black Hammer: The Event combines Lemire's themes of sadness, family and transcending yearning for love and acceptance with sci-fi and drama in this yet another great volume....

    The Black Hammer story (and its Sherlock Frankenstein side plot) is the only one I've really liked by Jeff Lemire. While there's nothing really innovative about these characters, I like them (especially the Lockjaw-like super dog in New World), and the 1950s vibe is still strong in thi...

    Black Hammer's daughter arrives and she's not OK with being stuck on the little farm as the rest of our tragic heroes have been. While she investigates the town we delve deeper into each character's backstory. Lemire has done such a fantastic job of reintroducing these archetypes of ou...

    A beautiful melancholy tale. World: Fantastic art the tone is very must informed by it and it's fantastic. The world building continues to be both so nostalgic and fresh at the same time. It's Lemire's signature small town, it's a DC love letter. It'd beautifully tragic and brillia...

    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. ...

    4.25ish stars. 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 ...

    After three months of reading Manga it's good to finally read something that has color. Not much is happening in this volume but writing and melancholic atmosphere are amazing enough to earn this volume 5 stars and place on favorites shelf. ...

    Black Hammer continues to be one of the best character driven superhero comic books on the market today. Bits of the mystery are revealed, but there are still lots of questions left. There's a surprise at the end that really makes me want to get ahold of volume 3 as soon as I can. ...

    That's more like it! I didn't fall in love with the first volume of Black Hammer, the story was too uneventful and the characters felt derivative. Fortunately, I thought the second one was an improvement. The main storyline finally starts moving as we meet a new character, the daugh...
