Following the success of Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston’s Eisner Award-winning series Black Hammer and its spinoff series Sherlock Frankenstein & The Legion of Evil, Dark Horse is excited to announce the next installment in the Black Hammer universe, Doctor Star & The Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows. Abe Sapien artist Max Fiumara joins Jeff Lemire in the new four-issue miniseries. Award-winning colorist Dave Stewart (Hellboy) and talented letterer Nate Piekos (Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite) round out this super creative team. Doctor Star & The Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows will feature variant covers by Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire, J.G. Jones, Dustin Nguyen, and Annie Wu.
Doctor Star & The Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows is a dual-narrative story that chronicles the legacy of the Golden-Age superhero Doctor Star. An aged crime fighter desperately wants to reconnect with his estranged son, who he hoped would one day take the mantle of Doctor Star. Over the course of the story we learn his World War II-era origin, how he got his powers, his exciting astral adventures, the formation of some of Black Hammer’s greatest heroes, and more in this heartbreaking superhero tale about fathers and sons.
“Dean and I were thrilled to see the fan response to Sherlock Frankenstein & The Legion of Evil,” New York Times bestselling writer Jeff Lemire explained. “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 first issue (of four) of Doctor Star & The Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows goes on sale March 07, 2018 and will be available for preorder at your local comic shop on December 20, 2017.
