The world of Dark Horse Comics’ Eisner Award-winning Black Hammer series is about to get a little more bizarre in Colonel Weird: Cosmagog, a four-part origin story from writer Jeff Lemire and artist Tyler Crook.
Speaking about the series, Lemire said “Colonel Weird has been my favourite Black Hammer character since Dean Ormston and I created him. I’ve always wanted to do a series where the storytelling would echo Weird’s unique mind, and unique perspective. Tyler Crook’s work more than lives up to the challenge. This is a deep dive into Colonel Weird’s past and his future. This series will answer the question of what happened to him after the events of Black Hammer: Age of Doom.”
Crook continued, adding “I think Jeff and Dean have created one of the most interesting and heartfelt superhero universes that we’ve seen in decades. I feel lucky to get the chance to contribute to the world. Colonel Weird is a personal favorite because he is the most human and most bonkers of the bunch. The story is full of cosmic weirdness but it’s all in the service of telling a touching, personal drama. I’m really excited for readers to see this book!”
Colonel Weird: Cosmagog #1 (of 4) goes on sale April 22nd, 2020.
