The Black Hammer miniseries will debut in August.
Jeff Lemire and Tyler Crook will reunite for another comic set in the Black Hammer universe, which Lemire co-created with artist Dean Ormston. The Unbelievable Unteens is described as a “meta team superhero saga” that will introduce a new superhero team.

This series stands alone but will also tie back into the new Black Hammer: Reborn series in unexpected ways!”
Black Hammer: Reborn will debut in June and will feature Lucy Weber, the new Black Hammer.
