Reemsborko adds Black Hammer to portfolio

Company will act as the worldwide licensing agent in all categories for the bestselling comic series.

Reemsborko is continuing to grow its roster, confirming that it has been appointed as the worldwide licensing agent in all categories for the bestselling comic series, Black Hammer.

Published by Dark Horse – and created by Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston – Black Hammer is a metafictional and epic 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,” enthused Max Arguile, founder of 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 on-screen activity.”

Charlie Olsen of Inkwell Management, which brokered the deal, added: “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.”
