Preview Action Lab: Danger Zone’s ‘SPENCER & LOCKE’ #1 by David Pepose, Jorge Santiago, Jr., & Jasen Smith

Action Lab’s SPENCER & LOCKE
Twists Classic Comic Strip Into Hard-Boiled Crime Saga

Writer David Pepose shares his love of comics in SPENCER & LOCKE: “As a lifelong comics fan, SPENCER & LOCKE is our love letter to both classic noir stories and iconic newspaper strips. This book has it all: action, mystery, suspense, fist fights, car chases, spaceships… and that’s not even counting the six-foot-tall imaginary panther. If you’re a fan of Frank Miller, Ed Brubaker or Bill Watterson, you’re going to love the unlikely heroes of SPENCER & LOCKE.”
