'Spencer & Locke' is far more than its premise suggests. It might be a love letter to 'Calvin and Hobbes' and 'Sin City' but it stands on its own as a police procedural murder mystery. Locke is a man obsessed, looking for justice while still battling his own demons. This is a unique hard-boiled crime thriller that is every bit as haunting and riveting as the genre implies. - Spartantown
