Dark Horse Comics have just announced that this October, the entire first chapter of the Eisner Award-winning Black Hammer is going to be released in a deluxe, oversized hardcover collection.
This new edition of the critically acclaimed series from Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston features a beautiful cover by Ormston with colors by Dave Stewart and collects Black Hammer #1-13, the Giant-Sized Annual, sketchbook extras, and more!
The tome features art by Ormston, David Rubín (Ether), Dustin Nguyen (Descender), Emi Lenox (Plutona), Nate Powell (March), Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), Ray Fawkes (One Soul), and Michael Allred (Madman).
Mysteriously banished from existence by a multiversal event, the old superheroes of Spiral City now lead simple lives on a bizarre farm from which there is no escape! But as they employ all of their super abilities to free themselves from this strange purgatory, a mysterious stranger works to bring them back into action for one last adventure!
“I couldn’t be prouder of this deluxe library edition,” explained Black Hammer co-creator Jeff Lemire. “I love the world of Black Hammer so much, and I love seeing the stories Dean and I worked so hard to create collected in such a gorgeous volume.”
When asked for his thoughts on the new deluxe edition, Black Hammer co-creator Dean Ormston stated, “It makes my brain explode, but in a good way.”
Black Hammer Library Edition Volume 1 goes on sale October 24, 2018. This new edition is 408-pages and retails for $49.99.
