Action Lab Offers Zombie Tramp on Free Comic Book Day
Action Lab Entertainment, The most exciting new comic book publisher to hit the scene is proud to announce their FREE COMIC BOOK DAY offerings for 2014. The company dedicated to world class, genre- bending entertainment will release two “Silver level” books for FCBD, SKYWARD / MIDNIGHT TIGER and from their Danger Zone imprint, ZOMBIE TRAMP / EHMM THEORY.
Free Comic Book Day is scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 at participating comic book shops.
SKYWARD, the runaway hit series by Writer /Artist Jeremy Dale (G.I.Joe, NFL RushZone) features the story 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. Newsarama.com calls Skyward “well executed coming of age tale” and TMSmash.com calls Skyward “ A great read for EVERY age comics fan.”
Joining Skyward this year will be a brand new Action Lab Series, MIDNIGHT TIGER
Created by Artist/Writer Ray-Anthony Height (Spider-Girl, Power Man: Shadowlands) and Co-written by DeWayne Feenstra (The Adventures of Aero-Girl), 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, like last year’s MOLLY DANGER/PRINCELESS offering, lead into a four issue miniseries of the same name, launching in July.
Called “one of the most original and fun zombie books to come out in the past several years“ by Aintitcool.com, ZOMBIE TRAMP is Dan Mendoza’s tale of a high priced Hollywood call girl named Janey who 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!! The FCBD Story will launch the third volume of the series co-written by Jason Martin (Night of the ‘80’s Undead) with new regular artist TMChu. Issue #1 will feature covers by Josh Howard (Dead@17), Jerry Gaylord (Fanboys vs. Zombies) and Jamal Igle (The Terminator: Enemy of my enemy).
Brockton McKinney’s EHMM THEORY has been called “A heavy hitter in an already blood-and-guts saturated market, while carving its own niche one issue at a time” by Fangoria Magazine. EHHM THEORY tells the story of Gabriel Ehmm, 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.
THE FCBD Story is a great primer for the launch of EHMM Theory Volume 2, set for a June release.
