Screen Rant spoke with Jeff Lemire about his Black Hammer universe. When asked if readers should expect a continuous level of complexity moving forward, Jeff said: “This sort of meta commentary has definitely become a big part of the Black Hammer Universe, and it will continue to be in new stories I am working on now. But it also has to be earned and has to feel right for the story. In the case of Skulldigger, it needed to read a bit more grounded, but I do think there is a lot of more subtle commentary about street level superheroes and some of the superhero genres pulp origins going on in Skulldigger as well.”

Entertainment Weekly also spoke with Jeff Lemire about his Black Hammer/Justice League series he created along with artist Michael Walsh. When asked about the series, Jeff said: “I grew up an avid DC Comics reader and was lucky enough to write many of their characters when I was working exclusively for DC. But when I went on to create my own superhero universe with Black Hammer, I thought I had mostly left DC behind. I never dreamed that a project like this would surface, where I could take my own creations and mix and match them up with all those iconic DC characters I loved so much. This project was a total blast from start to finish, a love letter to superhero comics and all the great crossovers I read as a kid.”
