CHAPTER 1: THE CURE. A wholly original and delightfully twisted deconstruction of the superhero genre by Hollywood screenwriter/Aberrant-scribe Rylend Grant. Liard Mason, a disgraced former superhero, is diagnosed with terminal cancer, brought on by years of using his powers. Defending what he has deemed an ungrateful and ultimately unworthy city is literally killing him. With just months to live and a legacy hanging in the balance, Mason launches a violent and misguided Death Wish-like campaign to purge the city of supervillains before he dies.

Hovering between life and death, Spencer and Locke must make the ultimate choice as they journey across a terrifying and otherworldly battlefield. Meanwhile, Roach Riley aims to paint the town red — that is, unless an unexpected hero has something to say about it!

What comic professionals and fans are saying about

“A little twisted, a little sick and all kinds of high octane balls to the walls violence make this one of those series that you don’t want to put down!”(Reading with a Flight Ring)

“Overall, ‘Spencer and Locke’ is one of the most enjoyable and daring comics to hit shelves in a long time, and volume 2 is shaping up to be just as engaging as volume 1.” (Outright Geekery)

“What makes SPENCER & LOCKE very special is the subtlety and reverence of its homages. There’s a nod and a wink to the entire comic book canon on every page, but these never overwhelm the gripping Towne-esque neo-noir at its core.”
– Alex Paknadel (Friendo)
