Girl in the Bay #1

The Girl in the Bay #1 CoverLet me tell you about sixties sci-fi. The hard core sixties scifi writers were chemists, physicists, all branches of science that were limited by what you couldn’t do. You can’t travel faster than light. You can’t build a time machine. But what about the cosmic?

Inner space was only a drop of LSD away.

Black Hammer – Cthu-Louise

Story – Jeff Lemire

Art – Emi Lenox

Colors – Dave Stewart

Letters – Todd Klein

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.

The art by Emi Lenox is very good, it is very cart...
