Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston's Black Hammer will return in April 2018 for its second cycle. Published by Dark Horse Comics, the ongoing series will be subtitled Age Of Doom. Black Hammer follows the forgotten superheroes of Spiral City. 

"One thing BLACK HAMMER has always done is comment on the history of superhero comics and we live in a world where superhero universes seem to be rebooted, relaunched, and rebirthed every year," said Lemire. "It felt like we needed to play around with that idea, but put a BLACK HAMMER spin on it. So, starting in April, Dean, Dave Stewart, Todd Klein, and I will continue the story and the mystery of Black Hammer farm in BLACK HAMMER: AGE OF DOOM! It's a new series, but everything you love will stay intact and we'll deliver the next chapter in the story of Golden Gail, Abraham Slam, Barbalien and the rest of the gang."

Each issue of Black Hammer: Age Of Doom will come with a variant cover. The first issue includes a cover from Skottie Young and the second has a cover from Fábio Moon homaging Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.

On October 18, Dark Horse Comics will publish the first issue of Sherlock Frankenstein & The Legion Of Evil, the first of several mini-series set in the Black Hammer universe. Written by Lemire with art by David Rubín, this mini-series follows Lucy Weber, the daughter of Black Hammer, as she uncovers the dark secret origins of some of her father's greatest villains.
