Reviews

"David Rubin brings this whole thing to life in stunning fashion.... With Sherlock Frankenstein and The Legion of Evil, the world of Black Hammer gets richer, deeper, and a hell of a lot more fun." - THE NERDIST

"I'm totally in love with the awesome BLACK HAMMER universe! And with SHERLOCK FRANKENSTEIN master storytellers Jeff Lemire and David Rubin have just made that universe even more awesome!!" - Gabriel Hernandez Walta (THE VISION, DR. STRANGE)

[David Rubin] is truly one of the most imaginative stylists working in comics today."--COMICS BEAT

"SHERLOCK FRANKENSTEIN is a gorgeous expansion on one of our favorite comic foundations."--PASTE MAGAZINE

"A must-read affair."--NEWSARAMA

"A real treat."--MULTIVERSITY

"A masterfully executed book with excellent writing, deep characters, and incredible art."--COMIC CRUSADERS

"Very intriguing."--ROGUES PORTAL

"If you've seen Rubin's work as an artist before, there's no further sell necessary. He captures mood and atmosphere in his line work that's remarkably sensitive and subtle, and yet his work also seems infused with an irreverent sense of humor that can shift seamlessly into deeper emotion and out again at the service of the story being told."--COMICON

"I'm not sure what I can tell you about Sherlock Frankenstein that you can't already see. An inventive, atmospheric book brought to life by the dizzying talents of artist David Rubin, Sherlock Frankenstein draws you into its bizarre world - populated by the strangest, most beautifully drawn characters. It's hard not to love this book." - John Arcudi (DEAD INSIDE, RUMBLE)

"The world of Black Hammer is a genuinely intoxicating one."--MONKEYS FIGHTING ROBOTS

"An absolute joy."--BIG COMIC PAGE

"It's incredibly hard to build a shared superhero universe that can draw readers in the same way that corporately owned, decades-old universes can; only Astro City and Invincible have really succeeded in having a similar longevity. The creatively displayed by Jeff Lemire and all of his collaborators across the Black Hammer line of titles puts this franchise on par with those two and does the most important thing a superhero comic can do. It makes you want to come back next month to see what happens next."--CBR
