Image Comics just announced that I have signed an exclusive deal with them for the next few years. I love working wth Image and am happy to continue to do so. Just wanted to clarify a few things for fans of Black Hammer and the comics coming to this Substack…
I have an exemption in my Image deal to finish the last few Black Hammer series as planned. So Black Hammer Reborn, Madame Dragonfly (with Dean), and the Black Hammer: The End will continue as planned and come out through Dark Horse across 2022-2023. And all the new Black Hammer comics that I have planned for this Substack will also continue as planned. So, rest east Black Hammer fans, this new deal doesn’t effect my plans for the BH Universe at all.
Likewise, it won’t effect my plans for this Substack either. The Image deal if for print comics only, so I will also continue to publish lots of new comics online here as well.
What this deal really means is that I am done with work-for-hire comics for the foreseeable future, and Image, and this Substack, have provided great homes for my future creator-owned work outside of Black Hammer.
I received a number of inquiries so I wanted to clarify. Thanks and have a great day.
Fishflies is back next week and also a new “From The Vault.”
I assume Black Hammer: The End is the final phase for the series. Will it have side stories like previous two phases? You mentioned doing The Quantum World with Wilfredo Torres at some point, so I've my fingers crossed that's still on the cards.
