Sherlock Frankenstein & the Legion of Evil: From the World of Black Hammer #1 revolves around Lucy Weber, the daughter of superhero Black Hammer, and her quest to find her father. Despite accounts claiming her father is dead, Lucy has taken it upon herself as a journalist to find the real story and recover the estranged Black Hammer after his disappearance in the aftermath of the defeat of Anti-God in Spiral City.
Lucy’s first order of business is to interview the various supervillains housed at Spiral City’s asylum for the criminally insane. However, this first, enormous step in her investigation has led Lucy to hunt down one of her father’s greatest enemies, the eccentric and evil Sherlock Frankenstein.
Sherlock Frankenstein & the Legion of Evil: From the World of Black Hammer #1 is a super unique series that provides readers with a fascinating story rich with sinister characters, a fantastic art style, and a compelling lead character that you will quickly fall in love with.
Lucy’s passion and devotion to finding her father despite many believing that he is dead makes her a tragic hero in a way. There is an aching sense that maybe she is doing all of this for nothing and that she may find that her father is dead after all this time, but the possibility that Black Hammer may still be alive keeps her and, by extension, the reader going.
