Action Lab’s Spencer & Locke Twists Classic Comic Strip Into Hard-Boiled Crime Saga
When his grade-school sweetheart is found dead, there’s only one friend Detective Locke can trust to help solve her murder — his childhood imaginary panther, Spencer. But when they face both a vicious crime syndicate and memories from Locke’s traumatic youth, can this unlikely pair survive long enough to find the truth?
Spencer & Locke is written by David Pepose, artist Jorge Santiago, Jr. with colors by Jasen Smith, and covers by Santiago and Maan House.
In a release writer David Pepose said:
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.
Spencer & Locke will be released in stores on April 26th.
