The level of sophistication that keeps coming with Spencer & Locke 2 continues to astonish me, as I devoured Issue 3. Readers can enjoy Spencer & Locke 2 #3 on its own and be completely satisfied with the story within its comic book pages. That’s the talent of writer David Pepose, creating elements dedicated to this particular chapter, while still connecting the dots for longtime fans of this Sin City-meets-Calvin and Hobbes story.

As a parent, there are multiple reasons to watch Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 5. There are many characters that get limited screen time but prove they’re just as valuable when they get a chance to shine. In a world full of social media, sometimes, it’s easy to feel lost in the deep background of a world filled with so many moments that get thousands of likes and retweets. Where do we (or I) fit in this fast-paced life? Well, having incredible moments with R2-D2 and other droids during Season 5 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is the perfect solution for parents or their kids that might feel unappreciated or perhaps just left behind.

Spencer & Locke 2 #2 explodes out of the gate with its latest release on Wednesday, May 29. The entire Spencer & Locke series is a dark and gritty look at the human psyche, where the main character deals with traumatic childhood abuses with the help of a special sidekick. Detective Locke depends on Spencer, an imaginary, big, blue panther, whether it be to ask for advice, help him in a gun fight, or defend his daughter in deadly situations. The bond formed with an imaginary character has never been greater – and the mental clock keeps on ticking.

20 years ago, Star Wars returned to the cinematic world after a 16-year hiatus from the big screen. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace released into theaters in May of 1999, igniting passion from longtime fans, while introducing new characters to a new generation of fans to come. Although the reception of this film has been hit or miss (stormtrooper-style), my own first viewing of the film was as exciting as I believe most kids would be when they watch their first entry into the Star Wars mythos.

For Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) this year, the Geeky Parent Guide’s S.T. Lakata wanted to share his thoughts on comic book publisher Image Comics, what makes them a personal favorite, and why others should check out their stories.
