Dark Horse Comics and DC are joining forces for a new crossover: Black Hammer/Justice League: Hammer of Justice. Black Hammer co-creator Jeff Lemire (Essex County, Descender, Green Arrow, Sweet Tooth) and artist Michael Walsh (Spider-Man, Star Wars) will be the team at the helm, as the heroes of the DC Universe finally get to set foot on the Black Hammer farm.
This 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 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.
In addition to the League, the Hammer team will also have the opportunity to meet Starro, which will provide plenty of craziness. The official solicitation can be read below.
In Hammer of Justice, a strange man arrives simultaneously on the Hammer Farm and in Metropolis. Both worlds are warped as Starro attacks! Batman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Superman, and more crossover with Golden Gail, Colonel Weird, and the rest of the Black Hammer gang!
Hammer of Justice #1 will also feature covers by Michael Walsh, Andrea Sorrentino with colors by Dave Stewart, Yanick Paquette with colors by Dave Stewart, Yuko Shimizu, and Jeff Lemire with colors by Dave Stewart.
Issue 1 hits all good comic book stores on July 10th!
