Overwatch And Black Hammer Lead Dark Horse’s Free Comic Book Day Offerings

by Hannah Means Shannon

The first wave of Gold offerings have been announced for Free Comic Book Day 2018, and Dark Horse’s Gold comic will feature Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch and Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston’s Black Hammer, with a cover by Kate Niemczyk (Mockingbird).

The Overwatch story will feature art from Niemczyk, with a story written by Andrew Robinson (Starman) and Joelle Sellner (Mer). In Overwatch: “Searching”, Sergeant Aleksandra Zaryanova is sent to eliminate the elusive hacker, Sombra. To do so, she reluctantly teams up with an “omnic hacker”.

In the world of Black Hammer, we will jump a thousand years into the future, with a group of teenage superheroes trying to to solve the riddle of what happened to the heroes of the twentieth century. Black Hammer creators Jeff Lemire (Descender) and Dean Ormston (The Sandman) return as writer and artist, with Wilfredo Torres (Moon Knight) joining Ormston in illustration and Dave Stewart (Hellboy) on colors.
