The World of Black Hammer Expands This Spring with COLONEL WEIRD: COSMAGOG
Quite possible the 3rd or 4th best shared universe in comics is expanding this year with the new series COLONEL WEIRD: COSMAGOG. Thanks to the fine folks over at THR who had the exclusive. The series launches April 22, and more details about the Dark Horse series are below.
Jeff Lemire teams with Tyler Crook on the 4-issue series that will follow Randall Weird, the former NASA astronaut whose trip to the Para-Zone at a young age made him sort of crazy.
On the series, co-creator Jeff Lemire said:
Colonel Weird has been my favorite Black Hammer character since Dean Ormston and I created him. I’ve always wanted to do a series where the storytelling would echo Weird’s unique mind, and unique perspective. Tyler Crook’s work more than lives up to the challenge. This is a deep dive into Colonel Weird’s past and his future.
Artist Tyler Crook added:
I think Jeff and Dean have created one of the most interesting and heartfelt superhero universes that we’ve seen in decades. I feel lucky to get the chance to contribute to the world.
This mini-series takes place after the events of AGE OF DOOM, so we’ll get to see what happens after that, and we’ll have more on this news as it becomes available.
