The Eisner Award–winning superhero saga returns to Dark Horse 

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (February 21, 2023)— Dark Horse Books proudly presents the Black Hammer Library Edition Volume 3. This oversized hardcover collects issues of #1-12 of the Black Hammer Reborn comic series, featuring a story that picks up years after the previous Black Hammer series with a group of new artists.

Years after Black Hammer and the rest of Spiral City’s greatest heroes seemingly died defeating the cosmic despot known as Anti-God, Lucy Weber, the daughter of Black Hammer, took up his mantle and carried on the legacy of her father.


Years after that, Lucy, and the world, have moved on. Living in the suburbs of Spiral City, Lucy is married and has children. But all is not blissful. Her marriage is falling apart, her job has reached a dead end, and for mysterious reasons, she hasn’t picked up the hammer in years. But as her domestic life begins to crumble, the secrets of the last 20 years, and the reasons Lucy really gave up being Black Hammer, begin to resurface, threatening her family and the peace she has tried hard to find for herself.

This deluxe, oversized hardcover features a new cover, sketchbook extras, and more!
