Action Lab Announces New Books for 2017

For the past five years, Action Lab Entertainment has been at the forefront of innovative, boundary-pushing genre comics, and in 2017 they are positioning themselves as the destination for creator-owned series for pros and fans alike.

Established series Princeless will return with a Spanish language translation in January, along with the debut of Bryan Seaton and Zombie Tramp creator Dan Mendoza's new ongoing monthly series, DollFace.



A decidedly different beast from Zombie Tramp, DollFace centers around Lila, a 17th century soul that has been transported into present time and into the body of a life size, ball jointed doll, created by a couple of MIT students trying to use technology and a 3D printer to create the perfect women.

Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sailor Moon and Weird Science will love DollFace, which debuts with a double-sized 64 page issue.

In February, multiple Eisner award winning creator Franco (Tiny Titans, Itty Bitty Hellboy) brings his next graphic novel serie…

In Star Wars We 'Trust', New Trailer and Posters for 'Rogue One' Arrive

As if anyone needed more motivation to see the soon-to-be blockbuster "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" from Disney/Lucasfilm, a new trailer called 'Trust' arrived featuring some more footage and quippy dialogue. 
The film is already slated to bring in at least $130 million on opening weekend and while some speculate that it won't equal the success of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens,' this prequel to 'A New Hope' should still be one of 2016's biggest hits. 


From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,’ an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves. Tickets will reportedly go on sale on …

WATCH: The Flash Assembles the Super Friends for Epic 4-Show Crossover

No one can say CW's four show crossover isn't an ambitious venture. The newest trailer entitled "Heroes V Aliens: The Dominators" features extended scenes involving a worldwide alien invasion that bring the heroes of The Flash, Supergirl, Arrow, and The Legends of Tomorrow together. 
When aliens make a pre-emptive strike, The Flash assembles his super friends to take on the threat. The trailer includes more footage giving more context of what CW's version of the Justice League are up against. There's a cinematic quality to the action with plenty of humor and enthusiasm mixed in. The exchange between Supergirl and Heat Wave is especially charming. It's the type of lightheartedness that fans of these shows love. 
The epic four-way crossover begins on Monday with Supergirl at 8 p.m. on The CW.

I'm grateful for great writing and amazing art that arrives every Wednesday. It helps take us away from the harsh reality of life, inspiring new adventures, and distracting us from the ills of the world, at least, for a little while. Take a look at this week's recommendations. 
I'm also thankful for every visitor to this site. Thank you all.
