Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston, creators of Black Hammer, a best-selling comic series published by Dark Horse in 19 different languages worldwide, have appointed Reemsborko as the worldwide licensing agent in all categories for the property. The deal was brokered by their agent, Charlie Olsen, of Inkwell Management.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Reemsborko to create a full range of products for fans to show their love of the Black Hammer universe,” says Olsen.
Black Hammer is a metafictional multi-book saga of interweaving superhero stories. A film and television development deal with Legendary Entertainment has also been confirmed. This deal includes not just Black Hammer, but all its associated titles, effectively opening the door to create a cross-platform film and television shared universe.
“This property is just so exciting,” says Max Arguille, owner, Reemsborko. “I enjoy superhero comics and films as much as anyone, but audiences are ready for something a little different now. Black Hammer is here to cure superhero fatigue. Clearly, Legendary also think so. Reemsborko is open for business on this right now, so licensees can get their ranges in store in advance of all the onscreen activity.”
