ECCC 2016: Jeff Lemire’s Black Hammer Back on Track

Black HammerAfter a series delay, Dark Horse Comics has announced the return of Xeric Award–winning and Eisner, Ignatz, and Harvey Award–nominated cartoonist Jeff Lemire and artist Dean Ormston‘s much-anticipated original ongoing series Black Hammer.

From the prodigious brain of Lemire comes Black Hammer, a character-based superhero drama amazingly brought to life by Ormston with colors by none other than Eisner Award–winning veteran Dave Stewart.

Once they were heroes, but the age of heroes has long since passed. Banished from existence by a multiversal crisis, the old champions of Spiral City—Abraham Slam, Golden Gail, Colonel Weird, Madame Dragonfly, and Barbalien—now lead simple lives in a timeless farming town. Even as they try to find their way home, trouble has a unique way of finding heroes wherever they are!

With a variant cover by Lemire, Black Hammer #1 launches on July 20 and retails for $2.99.
