In October, fans of Black Hammer will get to enjoy two spinoff mini-series set in the comic’s universe. But that’s not all we have to look forward to. In April, 2018, Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston will return with a new Black Hammer ongoing series at Dark Horse. And that’s a good thing, considering last week’s final issue of Black Hammer ended on a little bit of a cliffhanger.
“BLACK HAMMER ends with a major, game changing revelation,” said Ormston in a press release. “Readers are super keen to find out how our heroes are stuck on the farm and more answers, twists and turns are coming in BLACK HAMMER: AGE OF DOOM.”
And you’ll only need to wait seven months to find out! Hey, it could be worse.
“One thing BLACK HAMMER has always done is comment on the history of superhero comics and we live in a world where superhero universes seem to be rebooted, relaunched, and rebirthed every year,” said Lemire in that same press release. “It felt like we needed to play around with that idea, but put a BLACK HAMMER spin on it. So, starting in April, Dean, Dave Stewart, Todd Klein, and I will continue the story and the mystery of Black Hammer farm in BLACK HAMMER: AGE OF DOOM! It’s a new series, but everything you love will stay intact and we’ll deliver the next chapter in the story of Golden Gail, Abraham Slam, Barbalien and the rest of the gang.”
