Jeff Lemire, Stefano Simeone, and Nate Piekos explore The Last Days of Black Hammer in a new prequel story, currently available in serialized format on Lemire’s Substack page.
The Last Days of Black Hammer is free to read on Substack and will later be collected by Dark Horse Comics in a 110 page graphic novel.
Lemire is excited to share the story of Joe Weber (the original Black Hammer) along with Golden Gail, Abraham Slam, and Barbalien before their last battle with the cosmic villain Anti-God that began the entire series, saying that “The Last Days of Black Hammer tells the story of the last days of the original Black Hammer, Jospeh Weber, and is a graphic novel I have wanted to do for a while. I’m so excited to be working with Stefano Simeone to bring this to life and to release it in such a unique way.”
