Let's see. This is just the second issue o the second volume.

Vol1 is 13 issues and an annual

Sherlock Frankenstien four issue series (this is traded I believe)

Dr. Starr four issue series (third issue just came out)

And now Age of Doom is just on it's second issue.

I highly recommend this title. Can't get enough of it

Lemire also has an upcoming mini-series set in the far future of the Black Hammer universe. It will be titled The Quantum Age.

I went through the first two "Ultimate" TMNT hardbacks from IDW last night. (I think these were the complete reprint before the current one: big, European size hardbacks on nice thick paper that really shows off the artwork nicely.) I'm surprised how well they read thirty odd years on. A quick read, but a very fun, and surprisingly substantial one.

Anne Nocenti's The Seeds, the fourth of the Berger Books line from Dark Horse, will see print in August now. So, it wasn't forgotten.

Yeah, that was an excellent mini. The world of Black Hammer might be my favorite thing going right now.

Based on your guys recommendations I've been burning my way through Black Hammer, and hell yes it's a great comic.  At the back end of the first volume now, will definitely keep reading!

Edit: Still reading through Black Hammer on Comixology instead of working and just finished Doctor Star.  I'm such a huge fan of James Robinson's Starman, I can't believe I didn't know this comic existed until now.  Lou, you're right, I had tears in my eyes reading that final issue.

Ha! A brief cameo in the newest issue of Black Hammer shows that another Lemire character exists in the Black Hammer multiverse.

Having enjoyed Matt Kindt's work for many years imagine my surprise that is missed a new book from him.

Someone on the This Week list mentioned Ether. What a charming book. Like Castle Waiting meets Adam Strange in The Okefenokee Swamp.

Yay comics!

I had to look that one up, not sure who that lil fella was.

Really? It was a Vertigo comic, and one of the series by Lemire that caught the masses' attention. I wasn't that enamoured of that book, myself. It had a great ending though.

Essex County (before) and Trillium (after) were much better, as far as early Lemire.

Read the first issue of The Quantum Age and it didn't grab me the way all the other Black Hammer stuff did, which I devoured as quickly as humanly possible.  Maybe it's because I'm not much of a fan of the comics its paying homage to, here's hoping it picks up for me in the next issue.

I liked it a lot, but I liked the LEGION stuff it's riffing on as well.
