ECCC 2019: Black Hammer Meets The Justice League In New Crossover

by James Ferguson

Black Hammer has been doing a phenomenal job redefining the super hero genre. This July, Abraham Slam, Golden Gail, and the other heroes will get a chance to meet some classics of the comic book medium in Black Hammer / Justice League: Hammer of Justice, a five-issue mini-series event published in partnership between Dark Horse Comics and DC Comics. Written by Jeff Lemire and illustrated by Michael Walsh, the series brings the heroes of Metropolis to the Black Hammer farm. A strange man arrives simultaneously on the Black Hammer Farm and in Metropolis as both worlds are warped as Starro attacks.

Black Hammer co-creator Jeff Lemire says:

Black Hammer/Justice League: Hammer of Justice is a project that I still can’t believe is actually real, even though I’ve written the whole series already. Everyone who knows me and knows Black Hammer is aware of my love of the DC Universe. Getting this great opportunity to work with an artist like Michael Walsh to bring the Black Hammer and DC universes together for a special story was just too much fun. I’m incredibly excited about the story and think fans of both universes will enjoy reading it as much as Michael and I enjoyed creating it.

A massive crossover like this is getting a massive amount of variant covers. Look for work from Michael Walsh, Andrea Sorrentino with colors by Dave Stewart, Yanick Paquette with colors by Dave Stewart, Yuku Shimizu, and Jeff Lemire with colors by Dave Stewart.

I am so very excited for this. It sounds awesome and I can’t wait to see what Lemire and company do with these characters in one place. Look for Black Hammer / Justice League: Hammer of Justice #1 at your local comic shop on July 10th, 2019.
