Finally got to read issue #7.

Spoiler

I enjoyed it, but not my favorite issue of the bunch. Such a mash up of Green Lantern, Thor, New Gods, Inhumans, and Asgard. I admit I did love seeing the Mister Miracle stand in!

I'm all caught up on Black Hammer.  Great stuff.  Lemire is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers.  I'd say he's in my Top 5 now

Two months to the day since anyone bumped this thread.

 

I just finished reading #9 and it the plot is starting to shake things up a bit. Several threads open up in this issue, interested to see where they go.

Its a fact. This is a really fun book that fills a void in the missing comics of yesteryear. I'm a big fan of this and Brigg's Land but they're Dark Horse books so my expectations are somewhat tempered. That said, the SDCC version of issue #1 is a decent seller though I wouldn't call it hot.

You guys are definitely correct. I should make a stronger effort to try to get a conversation going around the moderns I'm reading - right now it's just East of West, a bunch of Remender, and Black Hammer.

Re: Black Hammer...

The very first time I saw Black Hammer's death portrayed, I thought it had an uncanny resemblance to some of the imagery from Colonel Weird's Para-zone. I haven't read any theories or discussion anywhere else as this is really the only comic related board I visit, so I don't know if that has been hashed out elsewhere. I'd be surprised if it weren't, especially following the happenings of issue #9.

Nice! I picked up a very nice Black Hammer 1 San Diego variant and thankfully put it on the to be graded pile.

Wish I grabbed the first issue before the announcement, but I'm still excited!
