‘Black Hammer’ saga continues in ‘Doctor Star & The Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows’

Artist Max Fiumara joins writer Jeff Lemire on a new miniseries spinning out of the Eisner Award-winning series.

Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston’s award-winning, best-of-2017 list making and genre-defying Black Hammer returns next year with a new series, but that isn’t the only Black Hammer story to look forward to. Dark Horse has announced another spinoff miniseries, Doctor Star & The Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows by Lemire, Abe Sapien artist Max Fiumara, colorist Dave Stewart and letterer Nate Piekos

Doctor Star & The Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows follows the first Black Hammer spinoff, Sherlock Frankenstein & The Legion of Evil, which is out now. The “dual-narrative” story stars Golden Age superhero Doctor Star, an aged crime fighter trying to reconnect with his son, who he hoped would take over his superhero identity.

“Dean and I were thrilled to see the fan response to Sherlock Frankenstein & The Legion of Evil,” Lemire said in a press release. “We’re very excited to continue to expand the Black Hammer universe with Doctor Star, with Max Fiumara as the artist. This new series examines a difficult relationship between a father and son, which I think many people will relate to.”

The four-issue series kicks off in March and will feature variant covers by Declan Shalvey, Jordie Bellaire, J.G. Jones, Dustin Nguyen and Annie Wu.
