Jeff Lemire is one of my favorite writers in the comic book industry. He has written some of my favorite Bloodshot arcs over at Valiant Entertainment and some amazing titles over at Image Comics like Gideon Falls and Descender. Of course there are a lot more but this piece is focusing on one of his upcoming projects.
According to The Hollywood Reporter two super hero universes are on a collision course in a crossover event featuring characters from Dark Horse Comics and DC Comics. This July they will debut a five issue Black Hammer/Justice League comic book mini series titled Black Hammer/Justice League: Hammer of Justice. This series will be written by co-creator of Black Hammer, Lemire, with artwork by Michael Walsh. This series will feature heroes from DC and Black Hammer dealing with the arrival of a mysterious stranger, the classic DC villain Starro and the warping of reality.
Yesterday, Lemire made a statement about the project saying, “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.”
Lemire co-created Black Hammer with artist Dean Ormston, which debuted over at Dark Horse Comics back in 2016. The success of this series allowed them to create some spin-off titles like Sherlock Frankenstein and The Quantum Age. The series even won an Eisner Award in 2017 for best new series in 2017. The book has been also been optioned by Legendary Pictures with the idea to possibly adapt it into films and television. This is definitely a series worth checking out.
