Matt Kindt and Ray Fawkes will join creator Jeff Lemire for an epic WWII story in 4-issue limited series Black Hammer ’45.
The cover for the first issue suggests DC’s WWII combat force The Blackhawks as an inspiration for the series, but given the Black Hammer Universe, there is absolutely no way to tell which way (and to what degree) the series spin off/away from that series.
Black Hammer ’45 #1 will be in stores on March 6th. A series description follows.
Dark Horse’s Sherlock Frankenstein and the Legion of Evil #1 is a unique experience – it takes variations of comics characters that have been published for sixty or more years, dusts them off and gives them a spin that allows storytellers Jeff Lemire and David Rubín to both sneakily reference comics greats of Golden and Silver Ages while coaxing variations on them that feel new and vital.
The creators of Dark Horse’s Black Hammer take the idea of rebooting superhero universes that is so prevalent today, and put their own unique spin on it in their upcoming Black Hammer: Age of Doom.
Series write Jeff Lemire noted, ‘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.’
Black Hammer: Age of Doom #1 will be released in April, 2018.
Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston’s acclaimed Black Hammer series has earned a legion of fans with its tales of a band of superheroes who have long been forgotten in Spiral City.
But Lemire didn’t stop there – he’s had other ideas for stories in the Black Hammer universe. Beginning with four-issue limited series Sherlock Frankenstein and the Legion of Evil, by Lemire and David Rubín, these stories will begin to roll out in October.
Sherlock Frankenstein and the Legion of Evil follows Black Hammer’s daughter, investigative reporter Lucy Weber as her quest to find out the truth about her father of takes her to Spiral City’s infamous asylum where we will learn about the origins of the Black Hammer’s rogues gallery.
