    This is the first Black Hammer arc where I find it difficult to see what the point of it is, from a storytelling point of view. I think this is partly because of the convoluted plot, which also feels as if the reader is rushed through it, eventhough it's told over 12 isssues (this book being the middle 4 issues). At the end of the previous book Colonel Weird zaps (or shraks) Lucy's family, and then Lucy changes into Black Hammer and goes to see what is happening with this mirror Spiral City that This is the first Black Hammer arc where I find it difficult to see what the point of it is, from a storytelling point of view.

At the end of the previous book Colonel Weird zaps (or shraks) Lucy's family, and then Lucy changes into Black Hammer and goes to see what is happening with this mirror Spiral City that has appeared and I find myself thinking wait, she just saw her family die before her eyes and that would devastate anyone, right, but apparently not Lucy who zips off and what is happening in this series! Anyway, this series is Lemire's chance to dive into his version of the multiverse, which isn't suprising at all because of the existence of the Para-zone. I mean, if you have some extradimensional place like the Para-zone, you already basically have a multiverse. So we get the return of Inspector Insector in Limbo, in a parallel running mini-series drawn by Rich Tomasso, and I'm not very fond of Lemire's Limbo, which is the place where unused fictional characters go to drink in a bar (apparently). It always feels a bit too meta, a bit too "I'm a writer" cutesy, if you will. It does tie into the main narrative, at least. Not the strongest series, this, but let's see what the last third brings. (Thanks to Dark Horse Books for providing me with an ARC through Edelweiss)

    When will you sleep? Justice never sleeps. Right, of course not. We’re twenty years in the future from the last volume in Black Hammer Reborn: Part II and as things open, it appears Black Hammer (Lucy) has destroyed Anti-God, but then no, not dead. You know, is anyone ever really dead in Endless Comics? Doc thinks that in what he calls the Paraverse Anti-God is still alive somewhere and . . . sleeping! One theme here is nightmare/dream/sleep. As every0ne keeps saying, “it feels like a bad dream.” M When will you sleep? Justice never sleeps. Right, of course not.

You know, is anyone ever really dead in Endless Comics? Doc thinks that in what he calls the Paraverse Anti-God is still alive somewhere and . . . sleeping! One theme here is nightmare/dream/sleep. As every0ne keeps saying, “it feels like a bad dream.” Much of the volume feels like a manic fever dream nightmare, as a lot of people talk about never sleeping, which causes you to hallucinate, of course. And if they all are, so are we. Another central theme is an acknowledgement that there is, not just a universe, not just a multiverse, nope, but a PARAverse (!!), thanks to Doc Robnson, which means multiple simultaneous universes, with parallel characters in each universe. For instance, Colonel Weird--who is really used to weirdness--looks at himself in the mirror, and it’s not a mirror! It’s another version of himself! Occupying a different Parazone (ach!). “I have no idea what is going on. I have no idea what I’m supposed to think or what I am doing.”--Lucy, to Skulldigger. Me: I feel ya, Lucy, I am as lost as you are. Cute pulp stuff: There’s a series of two-page entries into a side issue called Inspector Insector: In the Case of the Electric Boy, with characters with names like Stretch, Goose, Slammwich. I guess it’s just more of the same goofy comic-naming such as Talky Walky, Colonel Weird, and AntiGod as the ultimate villain of the uni-multi-paraverse. The difference is, these Inspector Insector characters never get used in comics, so they hang out in a bar waiting to be called into action. Cute meta moment. How can we defeat AntiGod? Is it through The Parliament of the Weird? Or will Lucy and Skulldigger kill the Colonel first? I like the artwork for this new era. What’s the meaning of it all? I have no idea. Fun. A return to pulpy comix goofiness, I guess. Zany manic comics.

    I still like Lucy Weber as a protagonist, but too much of the book is given over to Skulldigger, Doctor Andromeda, Colonel Weird, and Inspector Insector. My interest in the previous volume gets bogged down in the mud as the series starts spinning its tires again, pointlessly playing around with a multiverse concept. This series began as a homage to DC Comics, but as it gets less specific in its tributes it has become a fairly generic superhero book with two-dimensional heroes punching a one-dimen I still like Lucy Weber as a protagonist, but too much of the book is given over to Skulldigger, Doctor Andromeda, Colonel Weird, and Inspector Insector.

    Things get meta as Lucy and Colonel Weird head into the Paraverse to try and stop the multi-dimensional catastrophe set into motion by a familiar face. As much as I want to be mad at Jeff Lemire (more on that next volume), I have to say I'm enjoying this. There's a lot of fun to be had with the character dynamics, and Colonel Weird is just weird enough to be fun without falling over onto the annoying side of things. I do wonder about the need to drag this out quite as far as it has been, but as I Things get meta as Lucy and Colonel Weird head into the Paraverse to try and stop the multi-dimensional catastrophe set into motion by a familiar face.

I do wonder about the need to drag this out quite as far as it has been, but as I say, it's fun, so I can't be too mad at it. The Inspector Insector back-up pages are almost better than the main story, to be honest. It's a shame that they aren't longer - the idea of characters that never came to be trying to find out why is something I'd love to see explored more, but the way Lemire manages to fold them into the main plot is pretty clever too. Four issues to go, and it only gets (Colonel) weirder from here.

    This was satisfyingly weird. I absolutely loved it! The idea of multiple parallel universes was well-played-out, and the characters jumped (or floated, as the case may be) off the page. This series is getting more and more bizarre as it goes, and I just discovered that I may have missed some of the volumes in the middle about various characters, so now I need to track those down. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a different take on a superhero story or who enjoys the mind-stretching This was satisfyingly weird. I absolutely loved it!

    While there's certainly some good stuff in here, this just isn't hitting me like the original Black Hammer storyline had. I don't know, maybe this really demands to be read all at once, when all twelve issues have been completed.

    De los pocos comics que me cuesta parar de leer. Aunque esas paginas dobles delirantes del Coronel Weird hacen darle más de una vuelta y revision. A esperar el final de esta nueva historia la proxima semana.

    I don’t mind a story taking time to unfold, but this feels like it’s treading water. After a volume where a number of characters were established and mysteries were introduced, this just sort of… marinates.
