Bo Plushy Gangsta

Are the legends of Bo, the “teddy bear” gangsta, true? And,
did we just say teddy bear gangsta?! You’re about to find out–when Bo’s girls
get nabbed by a rival gang boss, the mysterious and fearsome plushy gangsta is
forced into action! It’s Scarface meets Ted in this over-the-top video game
style urban epic.
When this book landed in my lap for review, I was very

Jack Hammer #1

Jack McGriskin is a private detective with a strong right
arm and a penchant for sticking his nose into other people’s problems.
When a missing person he’s been hired to find turns up dead,
he stumbles onto a network of corruption stretching from the streets of Boston
to the halls of Congress itself, and the trail takes him back into a world he

An Action Lab story based in Boston?  SOLD. 
No further review necessary.
Ok, maybe I should say more than that.  And for disclaimer, I live just under an hour
outside Boston, not in it, but that’s still wicked awesome (see what I did
there?)  Along with Beantown being the
well chosen setting for Jack Hammer, it’s a gritty crime tale that also happens
to involve superheroes.  Or at least,
super humans and the possi...
