Dark Horse Announces Black Hammer Volume 8: The End

The next chapter of the “Black Hammer” saga in one paperback volume

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (September 27, 2023)— The Black Hammer crew is back in Black Hammer Volume 8: The End! This trade-paperback volume collects Black Hammer: The End #1-6 and features a sketchbook section and bonus art by Tonci Zonjic, Tyler Crook, Caitlin Yarsky, David Rubin, Max Fiumara, and Wilfredo Torres. The latest chapter of the Black Hammer saga is written by Jeff Lemire with art, colors, and cover art by Malachi Ward, and letters by Nate Piekos.

The Eisner Award–winning superhero saga returns in this story picking up immediately after the events of the hit Reborn series.

In this multi-timeline, world-hopping adventure, we find new stakes, new heroes, and the long-awaited return to Black Hammer farm. The Weber family reunites and faces new challenges and villains in Lemire’s biggest event in the Black Hammer series thus far!

Is this truly The End for our heroes, or is it the beginning of something new?


Here’s what writer Jeff Lemire has to say: “Black Hammer Reborn left the Black Hammer Universe on quite a cliffhanger, and now we’ll find out what happens next! Black Hammer: The End is a story I’ve been building across the various Black Hammer books for years now. It will pull storylines, and characters, from all the various series into one massive story which will both be a conclusion of all we’ve been doing, but also usher in a fresh start, and a whole new beginning, for the Black Hammer Universe!”

The Black Hammer Volume 8: The End trade paperback measuring 6.625 x 10.1875” will arrive in bookstores June 11, 2024 and comic book stores June 12, 2024. It is available for pre-order now on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore and will retail for $24.99.

Praise for Black Hammer:

“Amazing. Just flat-out amazing.”—Patton Oswalt

“Black Hammer is easily one of Lemire’s best creations.”—Scott Snyder

“I don’t read many comics these days and I can’t remember the last time I read a superhero comic, but I’m loving BLACK HAMMER by Jeff Lemire, Dean Ormston, and Dave Stewart.”—Mike Mignola

“On my pull list by the time I got to page five.” —Mark Waid (Kingdom Come)

“Black Hammer is the maddest, most brilliant comic I’ve read in years.”—Mark Millar (Kick Ass)

“Jeff Lemire’s Black Hammer feels like it’s walking two roads—one honoring the past of superhero comics, and one forging a path into the future of the genre.”—Cullen Bunn (Harrow County)

“Black Hammer feels like a superhero story through an X-Files lens; it’s strange and melancholy and real. The tale evokes an immense world filled with typically deep Lemire-ian themes of isolation, joy and simplicity. I can’t wait to see where he goes from here.” —Charles Soule (Star Wars: Poe Dameron, Letter 44)
