PopCultHQ’s Comic Book Review:
SHERLOCK FRANKENSTEIN & THE LEGION OF EVIL:
FROM THE WORLD OF BLACK HAMMER TPB

Writing:

Jeff takes fans even further into the world of Black Hammer. This TPB tells the story of Black Hammer’s beloved daughter as she learns about her father’s rogues gallery. Furthermore, she and readers are fully introduced and given the background on the greatest villain of this entire universe Sherlock Frankenstein. It’s all a rich tapestry being woven together by Jeff, with every new series tying more into the narrative.

Art:

David does it all for this book. A triple threat who serves up rich material that makes this TPB all the more enjoyable and inviting. Fans will come for Jeff’s scripts and story, but stay for David’s eye-popping artwork, beautiful colors and detailed lettering. Together, he and Jeff brought forth something amazing, this trade for all to appreciate.

 

PopCultHQ’s overall assessment:

Even villains have to have their stories told at some point. And so off into the world of Black Hammer once again. This time, fans will be treated to the history of Sherlock Frankenstein, arch-villain of Black Hammer and other heroes. See Black Hammer’s daughter Lucy keep digging deeper and deeper to hopefully uncover a way to bring her father and the others home. It’s all inside the pages, waiting to be enjoyed.
