    Jeff Lemire's Black Hammer universe, based on the central trilogy we have so far--begins in the present, on a farm in Ontario, with a bunch of aging superheroes stuck there. And we are stuck with a lot of questions that slowly but not quite satisfactorily get answered: Who are these people? Who is Black Hammer? How is they got there and why can't they leave? As this story slowly proceeds, Lemire is, in addition to the three volumes, now rolling out a series of spin-offs that take us nostalgicall Jeff Lemire's Black Hammer universe, based on the central trilogy we have so far--begins in the present, on a farm in Ontario, with a bunch of aging superheroes stuck there. And we are stuck with a lot of questions that slowly but not quite satisfactorily get answered: Who are these people? Who is Black Hammer? How is they got there and why can't they leave? As this story slowly proceeds, Lemire is, in addition to the three volumes, now rolling out a series of spin-offs that take us nostalgically back to the Golden Age of the Black Hammer Universe, working with a great range of artists with sometimes wildly different styles, answering our questions not in flashbacks but with separate stories. It's a very cool thing, unusual and ambitious. This issue begins my third such spin-off, itself a kind of ode to World War II comics, with the Black Hammer Squadron facing off against the Naziis, with a hint at the Tuskegee Air Men and some huge mechs thrown into the bargain. This is a pulpy action story set in the vein of Captain Midnight, Blackhawk, and Airboy, but it is also a story of change, as we tack back and forth between the war at the time (in 1945!) and a reunion 7o years later. The passage of time is one thing Lemire wants us to think about, with an homage to the Golden Age, and a tip of the hat to old soldiers who fought for the future of the planet. And get this, this spin-off features the co-writing of Lemire and his good friend Ray Fawkes, and it's drawn in the pulpy sketchy style by another good friend, Matt Kindt. Some of the best people in comics, at the top of ther game, including Sharlene Kindt whose terrific colors make this world come alive.

    Nazi tech subplot?! Love this riff on B.P.R.D.!

    The first Black Hammer book I don’t really care for. The art wasn’t for me, the script was hard to read, and the story itself was just not something I really enjoyed. Sad to say it, but I guess they can’t all be winners.

    There’s so much happening in this book. I really was absorbed by it. The back and forth in the timeline and how much we discovered in such a short time. It was great. The art wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but I think it’ll grow on me.

    A fantasy about how four black aviators won WW2 Good color artwork,dark horse freebie. An old aviator with the black hammer squadron remembers the glory days,when he and his friends won WW2,pretty much single handedly. Sets up the last mission before the end of the war.

    nazilere karşı savaşan kahraman amerikalılar klişesinden ötürü biraz soğuk baksam da retro çizimlerini çok hoş buldum ve şekilci/sığ bir okuyucu olduğumdan seriye devam edeceğim.
