Action Lab Brings Awesomeness to FCBD 2014


Action Lab will be making their works known on Free Comic Book Day 2014. They're an up and comer on the comic book scene and they've got two works that might pique your interest on the day of free books and inspiring comic book shop commerce. The publisher will release two Silver Level books in Midnight Tiger/Skyward and Zombie Tramp/Ehmm Theory.

Created by artist/writer Ray-Anthony Height and co-written by DeWayne Feenstra, Midnight Tiger stars high school senior Gavin Shaw, who after attempting to save the life of the gravely injured hero known as Lionsblood finds himself waking up in a hospital bed days later with amazing new super human abilities. The FCBD Book will lead into a four issue miniseries of the same name, shipping in May 2014. Joining Height will be Skyward, the series by Jeremy Dale of a young boy named Quinn, The son of a legendary warrior named Corin. Living in the Idyllic countryside with not a care in the world his life is turned upside down when an old friend of his father manages to track them down. Now, Quinn and his dog Jack are on the run, headlong against a threat more terrible and a world more fantastic than they ever imagined.

The story of Gabriel Ehmm is intriguing. A normal guy who has awoken to a world where zombie ‘little people’ rise from graves, someone calling himself Saint Peter offers bargains and his pet kitten can now talk. Connected by blood and straddling the afterlife, Gabe and Mr. Whispers (the aforementioned talking cat) begin a universe-spanning adventure in the first issue of this mind-bending and genre-blending new series. Ehmm Theory shares it’s space with Zombie Tramp, Dan Mendoza’s tale of a high priced Hollywood call girl, Janey, gets set up on a bad date by her transvestite Madame. Bitten by a zombie, Janey seeks out vengeance on those who wronged her. Cartoon grindhouse action abounds -- with voodoo queens, zombie convicts, and crooked LAPD!!
