Black Hammer is finally ready to launch! Coming in JULY 2016 from Dark Horse Comics!
BLACK HAMMER follows a group of oddball superheroes who have been "wiped out of continuity" after an earth shaking cataclysmic "event" and wake on a farm in a mysterious small town.
They were the greatest heroes of a lost era, Golden Aged crime buster, ABRAHAM SLAM, interstellar adventurer COL. WEIRD and his robot sidekick TALKY-WALKY, BARBALIEN warlord From Mars, GOLDEN GAIL, America’s super-sweetheart, MADAME DRAGONFLY, mistress of the macabre, and BLACK HAMMER invincible champion of the streets.
They have no idea where they are or how to get back home. All they know is they can't leave the borders of the seemingly idyllic small town.
The book follows the strange cast of characters as they work to assimilate themselves into quiet small town life, living as a bizarre surrogate family on the farm, all the while try to uncover the many mysteries of the farm, where they really are and how to get back home.
Written by Jeff Lemire and Illustrated by Dean Ormston, Black Hammer also features colors by Dave Stewart and Letters by the legendary Todd Klien.

Based on award-winning cartoonist Jeff Lemire’s much-loved graphic novel trilogy, published by Top Shelf Productions, this series intricately weaves the genealogy of a family’s origins across generations. The novel is an intimate study of an eccentric community and a tender meditation on family, memory, grief, secrets, and reconciliation.
Ted Adams, Chris Staros, Jeff Lemire and Aaron Martin will Executive Produce along with Christina Piovesan of First Generation Films.
“ESSEX COUNTY is a vivid and haunting book that has inspired a dedicated and distinguished following. We are thrilled Jeff has agreed to collaborate with FGF to bring his vision to the screen” says First Generation Films President Christina Piovesan.

Regarding the project, Di Cresce adds, “With Aaron Martin's wealth of writing and production experience, we hope to break new ground with this material. We are excited by his vision for adapting the novel and can’t wait to bring it to the screen."

New York Times bestselling author Jeff Lemire is currently writing Marvel Entertainment’s “The Extraordinary X-Men”, as his original graphic novel series “Descender” is being adapted into a major motion film by Sony Pictures.
Award-winning screenwriter Aaron Martin’s previous credits include CTV’s “Degrassi: The Next Generation”, CBC’s “Being Erica”, CTV’s “Killjoys” and most recently Super Channel’s Slasher”.
