    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...

    I like it, but sometimes it's almost a bit too "pastichey" if you get what I mean. I wish this was a bit more original. And the story is really taking its own sweet time to develop. Great artwork throughout from Dean Ormston. ...

    Excellent follow-up volume. We met everyone in vol.1 and now in vol. 2 everything starts happening. What they've been waiting for is finally arriving. Bad things are happening and we know who it is. Two members of the family do dreadful things that shock us They feel vindicated but if ...

    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...

    There is so much mystery and intrigue in this series already and so much happens. The back story dips into Golden Age type heroes and shows of the events that led them to be stuck on the farm without letting us know why yet. There is plenty more about Black Hammer too and his conflicti...

    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...

    Character First So, all of Black Hammer's superhero companions have been trapped in some dullsville pocket universe for the past ten years. Hammer's daughter, Lucy, is somehow transported into that bland nowheresville as this Volume 2 opens, and being the good reporter she is, she p...

    Part deconstruction. Part loving homage. Part gentle parody. Writer Jeff Lemire has created a comic about comics but one that never becomes annoyingly precious or meta. Lemire never seems satisfied with being merely intellectually cute. The reflective nature of his work h...

    I'm offically hooked on the Black Hammer universe. Continuing on from the last volume, we were left off with the arrival of Black Hammers daughter. She not pleased with being stuck on the farm, but the "twilight zone" mystery continues. As she pieces together the mystery, the character...

    [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...

    I continue to delight in the shifting styles, the way the illustration, speech patterns, even the fonts change depending on what period and genre is being evoked. Plot points: (view spoiler)[--Black Hammer's daughter Lucy appears out of nowhere but has no idea how she got there or...

    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....

    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.? Th...

    Great continuation of the story. This volume is mostly backstory with the introduction of a new character to the farm to shake things up. Can?t wait to see where it goes next. ...

    A ratos me ha agradado, otros me habría sentido estafado de haber pagado cuatro pavos por alguna de sus entregas; hace treinta años no habrían dado ni para complementos de aquellos tebeos de 16 y 17 páginas que se acompañaban de una historieta de 5 para llegar a las 22. Sin embarg...

    This is a very well done wallow in comic book superhero nostalgia. I'm still not sure how this will appeal to anyone who is not a middle-aged fanboy like me who read almost everything DC published in the '70s and '80s. Even I'm having a little trouble with the pacing, as a plot develop...

    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...

    Lemire es uno de los talentos mas grandes en la actualidad y acá lo deja mas que claro, dando un golpe de autoridad en la mesa. La historia avanza y entre hechos del pasado y el presente, aprendemos mas de los personajes, de la desesperación de Gail, de la soledad de Barbalien ,de...

    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. ...

    ¿Puedo decirlo? ¿Puedo, puedo? Porfa, porfa, porfa... Lemire es el Kirby actual. Seguimos con éste peculiar grupo de superhéroes encerrados en la granja dentro de ese extraño pueblo que parece artificial. Seguimos conociéndolos un poco más gracias a esos magníficos flashb...
