„The Unbelievable Unteens“ - Neues Spin-Off aus dem Black Hammer Universum

Das Kreativ-Team hinter Colonel Weird: Cosmagog kommt erneut mit neuem Black Hammer Titel um die Ecke!

Mit Black Hammer: Age of Doom schloss der kanadische Autor Jeff Lemire erfolgreich die erste große Phase innerhalb seines breit angelegten Superhelden-Universums ab. Überaus fleißig legt der Kanadier nun mit zahlreichen Spin-Off Titel den Grundstein, für die sogenannte zweite Phase.


Jeff Lemire und Zeichner Tyler Crook, das verantwortliche Kreativ-Duo hinter dem zuletzt erschienenen psychedelischen Ritt durch das Hammerverse Colonel Weird: Cosmagog, kümmert sich nun gemeinsam zum zweiten Mal, um eine genrebiegende Auskopplung, welche ebenfalls den Mythos des besagten Superhelden-Universums erweitern soll.


Unter dem Titel The Unbelievable Unteens setzen die Kreativen eine weitere Mini-Serie um, welche uns ein neues Superhelden-Team vorstellt.

Der Comic wird insgesamt vier Ausgaben umfassen und erscheint am kommenden 11.August für den US-Markt.

A New Spin-Off Series by Jeff Lemire and Tyler Crook, the Team Behind ‘Colonel Weird: Cosmagog’


MILWAUKIE, Ore., (May 21, 2021)—The world of the Eisner Award-winning Black Hammer series continues to expand with this meta team superhero saga taking place between two different worlds in The Unbelievable Unteens! Written by critically acclaimed author and Black Hammer co-creator Jeff Lemire (Berserker Unbound, Sweet Tooth: The Return) and illustrated by returning Black Hammer artist, Tyler Crook (Colonel Weird: Cosmagog, Harrow County), The Unbelievable Unteens spins a genre-bending origin story for a brand-new superhero team!

After signing at a comic book convention, Unbelievable Unteens artist Jane Ito finds herself visited by one of the characters from her own creation—but was it her own creation? Were the Unteens an actual school of teenaged misfit superheroes who battled supervillains under the lead of the mysterious Dr. Miles Moniker? And if so, who wiped their memories and why? As Jane’s world is turned upside down and she learns the true nature of her identity she discovers a sinister plot leading her to assemble a team she had suspected was purely fictional.

“The Unbelievable Unteens is a Black Hammer story that I have been working on for a few years and was just waiting for the right time and the right collaborator,” said Lemire. “After doing Colonel Weird with Tyler Crook I knew he would be perfect to bring the creepy and wonderful teenage super hero world of the Unteens to life. This series stands alone but will also tie back into the new Black Hammer: Reborn series in unexpected ways!”

“I loved working with Jeff Lemire on Colonel Weird: Cosmamgog and was very excited that he wanted to continue working with me on The Unbelievable Unteens,” Crook added. “I haven’t had many opportunities to work on superhero stories and this book gave me the chance to scratch that itch. I can’t wait for readers to get to know these characters and the weird events that made these Unteens so “unbelievable”!”

The Unbelievable Unteens #1 (of four) will hit comic shops August 11, 2021. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
