NYCC 2016: Action Lab Launches SPENCER & LOCKE by Pepose and Santiago

A hard-boiled detective. A brutal murder. And a six-foot-tall imaginary panther. Spencer & Locke, due in stores and digital devices March 2017 from Action Lab Entertainment’s Danger Zone imprint.

What if Calvin & Hobbes grew up in Sin City? Find out in SPENCER & LOCKE, a dark four-issue crime thriller from Action Lab Entertainment’s Danger Zone imprint.


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.
