I loves me some Jeff Lemire and since he is gone from the DC Comic pasture, I haven't been able to review anything he's done. Of course, there are always ways around such things and I have a feeling I will be getting my Lemire fix in the coming months. Whatever the future may bring, I certainly have today and today I'm reviewing Jeff's new Dark Horse book, Black Hammer. Dark Horse describes it as such:
The issue opens with an older man on a farm, going through what must be his normal, everyday routine. It seems as if he is talking to nobody in particular (maybe it's just us the readers) about how his life has changed in the "Ten Years today since we arrived". We don't yet know the who or what of the "we", but I have to say, it's as if this man is a long lost friend catching me up on his life.
