Courtesy of Jeff Lemire’s Substack Tales from the Farm, we have an exclusive first look at the upcoming new Black Hammer series Colonel Weird and Little Andromeda. The weekly series brings together a host of creators to tell self-contained stories within the universe. Joining Lemire is House of Slaughter writer Tate Brombal and Ray Fawkes on a series that’s described as Little Nemo meets The Little Prince.
“Colonel Weird continues to take on a life of his own as both a fan favourite and my own personal favourite Black Hammer character” said Jeff Lemire in a statement in April. “It’s a wonderful, strange dream come true to see so many talented artists interpreting the Colonel, and Tate and Ray have done a great job anchoring the whole thing and building a surprising new chapter that fans will love.”
What is Colonel Weird and Little Andromeda about?
Space-faring adventurer Colonel Weird sets forth on a journey to save his superhero colleagues from their rural purgatory by entering the Para-Zone only to find himself paired with the much much younger Doctor Andromeda on a series of fantastical adventures through assorted worlds and dimensions!
Writer Tate Brombal added “From the beginning, Colonel Weird and Little Andromeda was designed to be the best possible canvas for our artists to cut loose and showcase their art form. So, strap in for a breathtaking, formative tale that is integral to who Colonel Weird and Doctor Andromeda become. Fans of Black Hammer and the comics medium will NOT want to miss out on this!”
