Praise for Black Hammer:
“At once an epic, gripping superhero mystery, and a heartfelt meditation on why superheroes matter, Black Hammer is easily one of Lemire’s best creations.”—Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman)
“Lemire, Ormston and Stewart’s work on Abraham Slam is worth buying, reading and adoring this series alone. With a top-billing group like that, this story, art, colors and tone do not disappoint.”—Court of Nerds
“Lemire’s Black Hammer feels like it’s walking two roads—one honoring the past of superhero comics, and one forging a path into the future of the genre.”—Cullen Bunn (Harrow County)
“Black Hammer is the maddest, most brilliant comic I’ve read in years.”—Mark Millar (Kick-Ass)
