Spencer & Locke is Getting a Third Volume

Writer David Pepose has announced that his popular comic series Spencer & Locke is getting a third volume. Joining Pepose are returning creators Jorge Santiago, Jr. on art, Jasen Smith on colors, and Colin Bell is lettering. The below teaser image is by Joe Mulvey with Smith’s colors.

“His partner was imaginary… but the reckoning is all real.”

No release date has been announced but the series is “coming soon.”

The series is best described as Calvin and Hobbes meets Sin City as it follows a detective and his (not so) imaginary stuffed cat partner. With tons of homages and references, the previous two volumes are deep for fans of comic history and comic strips. We’re expecting more of the same for the third volume!

You can purchase the first and the second volumes physically and digitally now.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

The Wrong Earth

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #1 (DC Comics) – The first two volumes that brough together Batman and the Turtles were tons of fun and we’re excited to see where this new volume goes and what new adventures they can come up with.

Copra Vol. 1/Copra Vol. 3/Copra Vol. 5 (Image Comics) Copra is now with Image Comics and with new printings, it’ll be easier than ever to get a copy to check out. The series is an indie take on superhero comics and so worth it.

DCeased #1 (DC Comics) – This sounds like DC’s version of Marvel’s popular zombie stories and we’re good with that.

DC’s Year of the Villain #1 (DC Comics) – This is going to be an important issue as it sounds like it’ll set up the next year of DC Comics.

Descendent #1 (AfterShock) – A new series that revolves around secret government conspiracies, ancient cults, government corruption and the kidnapped son of a Senator. We’re in.

Fallen World #1 (Valiant Entertainment) – A new trip to the future of the Valiant universe focusing on Rai and Bloodshot. Valiant always delivers and this is no exception.

Five Years #1 (Abstract Studios) – Weaving many of the strands of the “Terryverse” into one epic saga we’re there for any series by Terry Moore.

Hashtag Danger #1 (AHOY Comics) – A dysfunctional scientific team taking on lost civilizations and supernatural threats. Sound familiar? AHOY is an amazing publisher having fun with comic tropes and have delivered with every issue and series. Plus you get tons of extras!

Spencer and Locke 2 #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The second volume of the twisted take on Calvin and Hobbes set in Sin City expands the homage as they take on a familiar enemy who’s a bit like Beetle Baily.

Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale (DC Comics/DC Ink) – We’re here to support this initiative of graphic novels aimed at younger readers! Check it out on Free Comic Book Day too!

War of the Realms #3 (Marvel) – Marvel’s event has been epic but uneven but we want to see what’s next in a pass the popcorn and turn off our brain sort of way.

The Wrong Earth Vol. 1 (AHOY Comics) – If you missed this series, you have no excuse now. It’s a spoof, homage, and love letter to superhero comics, especially Batman.
