NYCC 2016: Action Lab’s ‘Spencer & Locke’ Twists a Childhood Classic into a Hard-Boiled Crime Saga

Earlier this evening at New York Comic Con, comic book publisher Action Lab: Danger Zone announced the production of Spencer & Locke, a dark four-issue crime thriller written by David Pepose and illustrated by Jorge Santiago, Jr.  Spencer & Locke follows Detective Locke, who returns to the scene of his horrific upbringing when his grade-school sweetheart, Sophie Jenkins, is found dead in a lonesome back alley. But when Locke’s investigation dredges up menacing figures from his traumatic past, there’s only one person he can trust to help him close the case — his childhood imaginary panther, Spencer. The twisted nostalgia of Spencer & Locke will be released to comic shops and digital devices in March 2017, and attendees at NYCC this weekend will be able to pick up an exclusive variant of Spencer & Locke #1 by artist Joe Mulvey!


The series will also feature work by talented creators Jasen Smith (colorist) and Colin Bell (letterer).  For those unable to attend New York Comic Con this weekend, be sure to check out the above trailer and the below preview images.  As Spencer & Locke approaches its March 2017 release, stay tuned to Fanbase Press for further promotion of the series.
