What happens when a time machine device becomes weaponized? In Action Lab’s Ghost Town, Volume One, this concept is tackled with full force. Destruction, mayhem, survival, and a whole lot of shocking moments await!

When the president refuses to meet their demands, the bombs detonate in Las Vegas and Washington D.C., killing 1.5 million people and thrusting the United States into a post-apocalyptic landscape.

Action Lab Comics

Cover Price: $15.99

Vamplets, Vol. 1 tells the story of Destiny Harper. A young lady, who is floating through life. She can’t figure out what she wants to do but she knows she has a knack with children and a taste for the occult. This makes her the perfect fit to be the new Governess for the Nightcare Nursery.

Just like the toys the comic is based on, this story is adorable. There really isn’t any other way to phrase it. The art style is cute and inviting and the story feels straight out of a early morning anime cartoons like Honey Honey only with an occult twist.

Princeless, Vol. 2Princeless, Vol. 2
Trade Paperback
Written by Jeremy Whitley
Illustrated by Emily Martin
Colored by Kelly Lawrence
Lettered by Dave Dwonch
Cover by Emily Martin
Action Lab Comics
Release Date: July 26, 2013
Cover Price: $14.95

The feisty Princess Adrienne is back, and she’s definitely not waiting around for a lame prince to come and “rescue” her. In Princeless, Vol. 2, writer Jeremy Whitley and illustrator Emily Martin continue along the heroine’s quest to save her sisters — as surely, no one else can.

Warrior Princess Adrienne and the half-dwarf/half-human, Bedelia Smith, are on a mission: rescue Adrienne’s sister, Princess Angelica, from the tower that she’s a prisoner in. Accompanying them on their journey is a pretty-boy poet named Roderick, who happens to be in love with Angelica. As they enter the town gates, Adrienne and her allies quickly learn that Angelica is not as helpless as other princesses. In fact, she’s not only living outside of the tower, but she’s become an idol of sorts to the townspeople due to her overwhelming beauty. As Adrienne insists that she’s there to rescue Angelica, circumstances quickly turn for the worse when Angelica’s guardian demon is summoned seeking to kill Adrienne.

Release Date: July 10, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

At first, you might shy away from Night of the ’80s Undead #1, because it’s an indie comic by a company that you may not have heard of before. BUT, I would strongly recommend that you give it a look, because behind the cover you will find one hell of a good time!

I have to tip my hat to writer Jason Martin for coming up with a story that’s both funny and original. OK, in today’s comic world zombies aren’t totally an original idea, but what he does with them in this issue, is. Basically, all of your favorite movie stars from the ’80s become zombies and it’s not the fact that they’re zombies that’s funny, it’s what happens beforehand. Martin hasn’t left anything out when it comes to the setting of the story, even providing a soundtrack for the readers at the start of the issue. These are stylized versions of real life characters and he hits them on every note.

Double Jumpers #3Double Jumpers #3
Written by Dave Dwonch

Action Lab Comics
Release Date: October 31, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Double Jumpers #3 is the penultimate chapter of this series, and I really can’t wait to see how this series ends. Not that I want it to end, it’s just so good that I want to see how all the storylines are resolved. Like the previous two issues, this one is very entertaining, funny, and an all-around good read.

Writer Dave Dwonch turns in another very entertaining issue here, it’s on the level with the last two very funny issues. As much as the “fish out of water/body switching” story formula has been used, this series makes it as fresh as if it were the first time you were reading a story using that plot device. As the gang from our universe travels on to fulfill their quest to finish the game and get back home, the four game characters continue to reek havoc in Las Vegas. There’s a lot of twists and turns in this issue, and it really throws the audience for a loop. I can’t even imagine how this series is going to end, but I’m really looking forward to finding out.

Release Date: August 29, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Double Jumpers #2, just like the previous issue, is a LOT of fun. Yes, it caters to the “geek” crowd, maybe a little too much at times, but it’s still a great read that’ll have you cracking a smile at least a half dozen times before you’ve finished the issue.

Writer Dave Dwomch doesn’t let up in this second issue, he makes it as fast paced and entertaining as the first. While this book is 99 percent humor, it’s got some heart to it as well. In this issue, the characters really open themselves up and you see there faults, strengths, and you actually start to FEEL for them. More than just a laughable “I can’t wait to see how they screw up next,” Dwonch really puts some thought into where these people are going and where they’ve been. Some really good human story mixed with a TON of humor.

double jumpers 1Double Jumpers #1
Story, Script and Letters by Dave Dwonch

Action Lab Comics
Release Date: May 30, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Here’s what Action Lab Comics say about there release of Double Jumpers #1: “The chaos begins after Jason and his team of programmers gets stuck in their own virtual reality game and must find a way to get back to the real world. Unbeknownst to them, the fantasy characters they inhabit have taken control of their bodies… and now wizards and warriors run free in Las Vegas during the biggest videogame convention of the year!” Now, I have to admit, reading that description didn’t get me very excited, but I was VERY pleasantly surprised at how much I loved the actual comic itself!!

Writer Dave Dwonch knocks it out of the park with this book!!! The story is original, and so are the characters. Yes, they are a group of “stereotypical nerds,” but they’re really not stereotypical at all. By making them all high functioning nerds, he really makes the story more enjoyable. Moreover, this group of characters is under the gun, not just victims of circumstance like in other stories along this vein that I’ve read before. This comic is refreshing, new, original and TONS OF FUN!

Space Time CondominiumSpace Time Condominium: Season One
Written and Art by Dave Dwonch
Action Lab Comics
Release Date: February, 2012
Cover Price: $14.95

Space Time Condominium starts with the premise of a man living with different versions of himself from across the multiverse and the story spins wildly out of control from there. It’s a webcomic written and illustrated by Dave Dwonch, with a new print version published by Action Age Comics. It is SO GOOD in so many ways, but misses the mark a few times.

So, the story goes like this: A crisis is destroying the multiverse as a scientist named The Gate Keeper flees his timeline, that’s about to be destroyed, with a mysterious plan that involves gathering 5 different versions of a man named Griffen Griffens, builds a condo in a tiny pocket universe unaffected by the crisis, and have them all live together. Whew, what a sentence. Oh, and it’s a comedy!
