When his grade-school sweetheart is found dead, there’s only one friend Detective Locke can trust to help solve her murder — his childhood imaginary panther, Spencer. But when they face both a vicious crime syndicate and memories from Locke’s traumatic youth, can this unlikely pair survive long enough to find the truth?
Writer David Pepose shares his love of comics in SPENCER & LOCKE: “As a lifelong comics fan, SPENCER & LOCKE is our love letter to both classic noir stories and iconic newspaper strips. This book has it all: action, mystery, suspense, fist fights, car chases, spaceships… and that’s not even counting the six-foot-tall imaginary panther. If you’re a fan of Frank Miller, Ed Brubaker or Bill Watterson, you’re going to love the unlikely heroes of SPENCER & LOCKE.”
