Spencer & Locke #1

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 a vicious crime syndicate and memories from Locke’s traumatic youth, can this unlikely pair survive long enough to find the truth?

While I can’t speak from personal experience, imaginary friends are a big part of many children’s lives. They get kids through so many things, even if they physically aren’t doing anything. Even so, the first issue of Spencer & Locke shows that even imaginary friends can be just as powerful.

Detective Locke finds himself taking the unfortunate case of the murder of his grade-school puppy love, Sophie...

Hero Cats #15

Rocket’s origin is revealed! Debuting the art of Hero Cats writer and creator Kyle Puttkammer.

Now this is a pretty special issue to return to after nearly missing this one. Not only do we get origin stories for two of our heroes, but debut art from the creator? I would have already enjoyed issue fifteen of Hero Cats, but that makes it all the more exciting.

Before becoming the strong member he is, Rocco started out living on the sea with his father. Rocket however, was the very first cat to be born in space, before sadly having to escape to Earth because of pirates. By chance meeting, these two eventually meet and become both friends and teammates in the Hero Cats team...

Lawless: Welcome to Badrock TPB

The backwater planet of 43 Rega has spent five years recovering from an invasion of aliens known as the Zhind. isolated and a hotbed for trouble makers, Badrock is an colony township desperate for a strong law enforcer to take charge. Enter Colonial. Marshal Meta Lawson. Tough, surly and determined, Lawson seems to be ideal for the role. But is this law-woman exactly who she claims to be…?

God, I loved this comic.

Lawless, set in the Judge Dredd universe, is drawn entirely in the stark black and whites of classic 2000AD titles, a look that could go head-to-head with any color comic and come out looking a million times better. The writing is absolutely top-notch, managing to maintain a straight face without sacrificing its goofy sense of humor. Marshal Lawless is a true badass...

The Courier #1+2

In 2033 less than 1% of the population survived a devastating pandemic virus. Half of those who lived were immune while half of the survivors mutated into something disturbingly subhuman. Now decades later, the world has rebuilt in many ways but has become something else entirely. Strongholds of human survivors have been set up independently of one another across parts of what is formerly the United States. The rich live in highly guarded Utopias where technology and even an economy has been restored. However, the vast “wasteland” between strongholds is a very dangerous and unforgiving place where the poor are forced to live in areas where gangs, pirates and the mutated roam free...
