MILWAUKIE, Ore., (January 19, 2024)— Take a deep dive into the extended world of Black Hammer in The World of Black Hammer Omnibus Volume 4.

In Skulldigger and Skeleton Boy, Spiral City is trapped in a vicious cycle of crime, corruption, and violence. With the heart of the city at stake, a vigilante rises as Skulldigger. However, when the nefarious Grimjim escapes from prison, Skulldigger and his ward, Skeleton Boy, find themselves pitted against a truly deadly and unstoppable force.

In The Unbelievable Unteens, artist Jane Ito finds herself visited by one of the characters from her own creation—but was it her own creation? Were the Unteens an actual school of teenaged misfit superheroes who battled supervillains under the lead of the mysterious Dr. Miles Moniker? And if so, who wiped their memories and why?  As Jane’s world is turned upside down and she learns the true nature of her identity, she discovers a sinister plot leading her to assemble a team she had suspected was purely fictional.
