This venture by writer Jeff Lemire in his Black Hammer Series is a one-shot story. That fact is welcome by me because I personally have yet to read any book in the Black Hammer series. I have been meaning to, just haven’t got there yet. The story is about a little girl who is half human half the Lovecraftian creature Cthulhu, and her plight dealing with the other “normal” students in her school.
I absolutely LOVE this book the writing is fantastic, Lemire paints a beautiful picture of teenage angst and pain through the eyes of this little monster girl. It is a fantastic allegory about being happy with who you are in life and appreciating where you come from.
The art by Emi Lenox is very good, it is very cartoony which I absolutely love! Dave Stewart’s colors are very bright and dynamic, and the color palette is vibrant.
5 out of 5 stars
