'Calvin & Hobbes' meets 'Sin City' in the series, debuting at New York Comic Con.

When a detective's former grade-school sweetheart is found brutally murdered, a big-city cop has to turn to an unlikely partner to solve the crime — his childhood imaginary friend. Welcome to the criminal underworld of Spencer & Locke.

The newly announced comic book series from Action Lab Entertainment's Danger Zone imprint is the work of writer David Pepose and artist Jorge Santiago, Jr. Described as Calvin & Hobbes meets Sin City, the four-issue series will officially launch in March, but will make its debut at New York Comic Con this weekend, with a special release of the first issue complete with a variant cover by artist Joe Mulvey.

For Heat Vision readers, the series debuts even sooner — we have an exclusive preview from the first issue below, as well as the first look at the series' trailer.

Action Lab Entertainment can be found at Booth 3044/3146 during New York Comic Con, which runs at the Javits Center from Thursday through Sunday.
