Action Lab signs Eisner- and Harvey Award winner Lea Hernandez’s new all-ages vampire yarn The Garlicks and answers the question, “Who are the smart guys publishing all-ages and girl-friendly comics?”

Jeremy Dale. Action Lab’s mission is to bring great comics for kids to

Skyward

The new creator-owned series from creator/artist Jeremy Dale
follows the thrilling tale of Quinn, left orphaned by an invasion of his
homeland.  Quinn and the other lost
villagers of his homeland will now run headfirst into a conflict and world that

is yet another hash mark in that collection.
Although at first it might seem like you’ve found yourself in
another run of ...

be impossible without your support.
On another note, it’s not
over yet.  Action Lab is tapping our
company supply of convention stock to meet all orders through Diamond.  Retailers still have the opportunity to get
