Dark Horse Turns Back The Clock With "Black Hammer '45"

Dark Horse is turning back the clock in the Black Hammer universe this March with the release of Black Hammer '45.

The synopsis according to the exclusive reveal from Syfy.com

Black Hammer '45 turns the clock back to 1945 at the height of WWII. The Black Hammer Squadron will take on Nazis, occult threats, and the Ghost Hunter — their ultimate aerial nemesis. With each story of Black Hammer paying homage to a different era of superheroes, 1940s comics like The Invaders, The Shield, and Captain America could be referenced, among many others.

Jeff Lemire will co-write the four-issue mini-series with Ray Fawkes and Matt Kindt will provide the art, with Sharlene Kindt and Marie Enger also contributing.

“Matt Kindt and Ray Fawkes are two of my best friends,” Lemire told Syfy. “They also happen to be two of my favorite creative forces on the planet Earth."

"The idea of unleashing them as a team into the universe of Black Hammer was way too much fun to pass up. What they’ve come up with is unlike anything we have seen in the Black Hammer Universe yet. It’s fun, it’s crazy, and it looks amazing.”
