Review: Black Hammer #2

26733

The Golden Age heroes of Spiral City have been “erased” from existence! Banished years ago to a timeless farming community, the team are torn between accepting their fate and finding a way home! Chapter two focuses on child hero Golden Gail, whose un-aging body most deeply feels the tragedy of their new lives.

This makeshift tale of banished heroes gets more intriguing with every tale. Writer Jeff Lemire manages to keep the main focus on how each character deals with their banishment while shifting the narrative style to focus on one particular character with each issue. It helps keeps things fresh and gives the reader a sense of a larger continuity.

Can we admit the cover is awesome? The retro style is absolutely fantastic. It reminds me of the old Superman show I watched growing up. The overall art style by Dean Ormston is a nice balance of flashback style scenes and their present existence.
