If you’ve somehow missed out on Black Hammer from Dark Horse Comics up until this point, I will get over my initial shock and explain a terrific opportunity for you to try it out. The publisher has announced a new collection called Black Hammer 3 for $1, as a perfect introduction to three storylines in the Black Hammer-verse. This includes Black Hammer #1, Sherlock Frankenstein #1, and Quantum Age #1, clocking in at 72 pages for only a buck! This collection is written by Jeff Lemire and illustrated by Dean Ormston, David Rubin, and Wilfredo Torres.
But what if you’re already acquainted with Black Hammer? Well, don’t worry, there’s stuff for you too. Dark Horse has announced the debut of the newest hero of Spiral City in Skulldigger & Skeleton Boy. Written by Lemire, illustrated by Tonci Zonjic, and lettered by Steve Wands, the twelve-issue series will follow the dark tragedy that has trapped Spiral City in a vicious cycle of crime, corruption, and violence. Skulldigger rises as the heart of the city is at stake. Joined by his ward, Skeleton Boy, he’ll have to capture the nefarious Grimjim who has just escaped from prison.
Black Hammer 3 for $1 is set for release on November 6th, 2019 and Skulldigger & Skeleton Boy #1 will drop on December 11th, 2019. Both are available for pre-order.
