Herald 4

While Earhart fights her way through the Elsewhere dimension, Lovecraft and Tesla spend an evening graverobbing before attending Mark Twain’s retirement party. The critically acclaimed Action Lab series continues!

Who would have thought that even more big names could be thrown into this series?  Well, not I, that’s for sure.  I’m certainly not complaining about it though, just as long as they don’t go too crazy with it.  The madness continues as we dive into the fourth installment of Herald.

Not long after their run in with the cultists, Lovecraft and Tesla head to a graveyard to try and recover the Necronomicon.  With no luck, they continue on to their destination of a retirement party for none other than Mark Twain.  It appears the trouble followed them though, as what looks to be more cultists plan a very strange interruption of the festivities.  All the while, Amelia Earhart who we’ve only really heard about, is seen making her way across the Elsewhere dimension.

Keeping the same artistic flow throughout the series, we had some particularly neat visuals this time.  The most appealing as you’d imaging were the imaginative illustrations and colors following Earhart in her otherworldly adventure.  Of course, the introduction of another historical figure gave way to an opportunity to successfully represent them in comic form.

With this kind of setting, bizarre and way out of the box are completely, uh, normal.  It only gets more and more insane as we get deeper and that’s a great thing.  I can’t wait to see what new thing pops up, and you should join the madness before it gets too far along.
