Praise for Black Hammer:

Black Hammer Reborn #1 is a great start to the series. Jeff Lemire’s Black Hammer universe is a love letter to comics history, and he has yet to produce an issue that doesn’t reflect his love of the medium. If this issue is any indication, this series will make a fine addition to the Black Hammer mythos.”—DC Comics News

For all who loved Black Hammer and its various tie-in books, Black Hammer: Age of Doom will be a welcome thing indeed. As the sequel series to the first run, issue #1 brings all the returning team’s gifts and abilities to bear. Come back into the world of Black Hammer and see what happens next!”—PopCultHQ

“Black Hammer #1 is a must-have comic, with the creative team delivering something unlike anything we’ve seen before. Not only do they introduce us to this narrative in a bold and gripping manner, but they also add tons of heart and emotion as well.”—
