31 Days Of Horror: The Wednesday Run Goes Criminal With “Sherlock Frankenstein & The Legion Of Evil #1”

Since the summer of 2016, acclaimed writer Jeff Lemire and fan favourite artist Dean Ormston have been crafting a monthly superhero story full of mystery, dread, heart and heartbreak.

Here is the tale of Spiral City’s greatest heroes, condemned to an idyllic farmland existence in rural America, a prison from which they can never escape!

That series, Black Hammer, published by Dark Horse Comics, has been a favorite of this particular reader since it began. Biff Bam Pop! has written about it both here and here and its following in the comic book community has only grown with each passing month.

The Black Hammer universe has developed exponentially, it seems, as Lemire and Ormston have been busy world-building by laying storytelling foundations of important, historic events in and around the main characters in each and every issue. It’s actually reminiscent of Mike Mignola’s work on Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. in its early days. Not only has this creative expenditure ripened the main Black Hammer story, but it’s provided colourful jumping-off points, for other, ancillary stories set in the same universe.

Today sees the first fruit of that endeavour with the publication of the first issue of the first Black Hammer spin-off series: Sherlock Frankenstein & The Legion of Evil!

The Flash S04 E02: ‘Mixed Signals’

afla1

As implied by the title of this episode, this one is all about mixed signals, whether literal, or emotional and romantic. As The Flash battles Kilg%re, here a dangerous metahuman who can control technology, Barry struggles to reignite his six-months-gone relationship with Iris, and we see an interesting reversal in Cisco and Gypsy’s relationship as well. Join me after the super-speed techno-organic jump for my thoughts on “Mixed Signals!”
