Action Lab releases

Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Action Lab comic book titles that were released yesterday, June 8, 2016. Check out the new one here: Ghoul Scouts. The first issue sums up how I felt every camping trip would end up. I always expected the undead to be a larger issue than it is. Perhaps I watched too many horror films as a kid?

The Occultist, Volume 2 review header image

The Occultist, Volume 2: At Death’s Door
Created by Mike Richardson
Story by Mike Richardson and Tim Seeley
Script by Tim Seeley
Art by Mike Norton
Color by Allen Passalaqua
Letters by Nate Piekos of Blambot
Cover and Chapter Break Art by Steve Morris
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 25, 2014
Cover Price: $16.99

As I’m sure you probably gleaned from the title, this graphic novel is centered around mystical powers. And if that’s all that The Occultist, Volume 2: At Death’s Door had going for it, it would still be a darn fine read. But fortunately for us, there is more going on here than you might first think. This is not your typical supernatural story, not by any means.

Since this was a miniseries originally, it is exceptionally nice that the writers included a couple of pages of back story to help new readers. Most of the time we don’t get that luxury. The premise here is a young man named Rob Bailey has been given the power of an ancient tome entitled The Sword. Following the loss of his trusted friend and mentor, Rob teams up with a local detective to stop the demons and the undead from seizing power and killing innocents. And that leads us to the current chain of events in this five issue series.

The Occultist #1The Occultist #1
Created by Mike Richardson
Written by Mike Richardson and Tim Seeley
Art by Mike Norton
Color by Allen Passalaqua
Letters by Nate Piekos of Blambot
Covers by Steve Morris, Paolo Rivera
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: October 2, 2012
Cover Price: $3.50

I’ve got a confession to make here, I chose to review this comic based solely on the title. I love horror comics and when a book is entitled The Occultist #1, I immediately think of Lovecraft, Cthulhu, and the like. So I dove in with some preconceived expectations, most of which never presented themselves. But hey, can’t blame a guy for trying…right?

Now, I don’t want you to get the wrong impression here. This wasn’t a bad book, quite the contrary. It just wasn’t what I was expecting. The main character, Rob Bailey, is in possession of an ancient artifact called The Sword. He’s described as a “mild-mannered college student,” but that just made me think of a certain super man masquerading as a newspaper reporter. I assume this was done purposefully, sort of tongue in cheek you might say. But Rob is a young man trying to unlock the secrets to this cryptic power he has been given. He’s not flying around saving the world…he’s saving it one haunted house at a time.

The Answer #4The Answer #4
Story by Dennis Hopeless & Mike Norton
Written by Dennis Hopeless
Art by Mike Norton
Colors by Mark Englert
Letters by Crank!
Publisher: Mike Richardson
Editor: Patrick Thorpe
Assistant Editor: Everett Patterson
Designer: Adam Grano
Production: Christianee Goudreau
Cover by Mike Norton & Dominic Marco
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: April 24, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Answer #4 is a perfect ending to this great mini-series. It’s got everything you’d want. Except answers. No, not THAT Answer, it’s got plenty of him.

Dennis Hopeless turns in another great script from a story by himself and Mike Norton. Up until this point, things have been a little confusing about just what’s going on with The Answer, Devin, Chip, and the rest of the cast. In this issue, everything you thought you know gets turned on it’s ear. We get explanations and more importantly, more questions. It’s a great issue with some razor sharp dialogue, some great action, even more great mysteries and some classic humor.

The Answer! #3The Answer! #3
Story by Dennis Hopeless & Mike Norton
Written by Dennis Hopeless
Art by Mike Norton
Colors by Mark Englert
Letters by Crank!
Cover by Mike Norton
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: March 27, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

While The Answer! #3 doesn’t really answer any questions (It actually brings up more questions), it’s a damn fine entertaining comic nonetheless.

Dennis Hopeless and Mike Norton have really done what they’ve set out to do: entertain me. Sure, along the way they’ll also entertain thousands of other people, but that’s just gravy. In this third chapter of the I wish it wasn’t a mini-series, all hell breaks loose as we go inside the pretty scary place where all the smart people work. But, who better to save her then The Answer? Of course, he’s got to save himself first, which may be easier said than done. This comic book is just plain FUN. Remember what that was like? When “fun” wasn’t a dirty word in the comics industry. Well, it shouldn’t be and that’s what this book is. From cover to cover, you’re going to do nothing but smile and be entertained at just how awesome The Answer is!
