Review Black Hammer #9


In the golden age of space exploration, Colonel Randall Weird was on the frontlines. In his interstellar travels he encountered many strange worlds and alien civilizations, but none more curious than the technological marvel that became his best friend: Talky-Walky! Guest artist David Rubin reveals her robotic backstory in this special issue of Black Hammer!

Writer Jeff Lemire manages to throw a few curveballs into things with Black Hammer #9. This issue also reveals how Colonel Weird met Talky-Walky, so check off one of the many mysteries of the series. The series is always interesting and this issue has an almost pulp sci-fi tale style. That’s especially present given how the tale is told as the past and present collide.

The art style by David Rubin continues to shine in this odd superhero mystery. We finally get to view Talky-Walky’s home world in this issue and Rubin delivers visuals that’ll get you to linger with some series vibrant alien landscapes. Not to mention some interesting looking robots.

As always, Black Hammer is one of the best superhero comics out there.
