Action Lab Outlines Continued Growth for 2013 and Beyond!

At its first ever panel at Comic-Con
International, cutting-edge independent publisher Action Lab Entertainment announced not only a number of its
upcoming new releases for late 2013 and into 2014, but also its launching of
the “Return of the Hero”—a number of titles intended at pushing the boundaries
of what a superhero story can be.

At the Saturday evening panel, the Action Lab’s
top staff showed the audience a presentation featuring highlights of its future
projects. The publisher also brought out many creators from its growing stable
of creator-owned talent, including name talent from comics, toys, and other media,
to share about their exciting new works!
For all-ages readers, the Eisner-nominated Princeless returns, beginning with an
encore release of the original mi...

Action Lab: Danger Zone Launch Sells Out At Distributor

Thursday, June 13th
– As of last night, Action Lab was informed by multiple retailers that both of
our two Action Lab: Danger Zone launch titles – “Ehmm Theory #1” and “Ghost
Town #1” – have sold out all copies through Diamond Distribution and all
reorders from retailers are currently being put on hold.
First and foremost, Action
Lab would like to thank all of the retailers and fans who have made the launch
of our new imprint a tremendous success. 
It’s a fantastic problem to face to have such high demand that we’re
struggling to meet it.  It would frankly
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

The Final Plague #1

The Final Plague has begun, and with it mankind’s final
hours.  Can a rural Iowan family survive
the initial onslaught of crazed, rabid animals, presumably the product of a
mutated super-virus?  Or will they
succumb to the plague that threatens to end all life as we know it?
More zombie apocalypse you say? 
Well, technically yes, but not in quite a manner the genre is accustomed
to.  The Final Plague is another of
Action Lab’s new Danger Zone books, and they continue to impress.  This fresh new take on the undead threat is
one that is very welcomed (ok, zombies, maybe fresh isn’t the best word).
Conceptually, this story is probably one of the most creative,
and in turn frightening that I’ve read involving zombies.  The walking dead is scary enough, but to have
them embodi...

The Trip

A group of college kids on a desert-baked road trip take a Native American
drug that unlocks their deepest fears. Now, if a teenager and his grandfather
from the local reservation can’t find them in time, they’re going to have to
face their own personal terrors, or be consumed by them! The Trip is an Indian
drug fueled ride into horror!!

The title definitely doesn’t
lie, this book is a trip and a half.  Now,
teens tend to get into stupid stuff they’re not supposed to, drugs being one of
them.  Always looking for that one high,
just so they can escape their everyday problems, if only for a bit.  However, this is one high they never should
have ventured to.  The Trip is a new
graphic novel by Jesse Grillo, that focuses on six teens out on a weekend road
trip through the dese...

Ehmm Theory #1

Gabriel Ehmm has awoken to a world where zombie “little people”
rise from graves, someone calling himself “Saint Peter” offers bargains, and
his pet kitten can now “talk”.  Connected
by blood and straddling the afterlife, Gabe and Mr. Whispers (the aforementioned
talking cat) begin a universe-spanning adventure in the first issue of this
mind-bending and genre-blending new series.
Where does one even begin with a review on a book about
zombies, talking cats, and the afterlife unlike any seen before?  I suppose I’ll start off by saying that if
Ehmm Theory is any indication of what the new Action Lab “mature reader” line
is going to be like, I’m totally down with it. 
This comical horror is a great step away from all things superhero in
comics, and I for one welcom...
