    A Calvin and Hobbes story gone wrong, Spencer and Locke #1 is a great debut. It manages to be both familiar and fresh, playing off of reader expectations in ways that are dark but entertaining. David Pepose gets a lot of mileage out of his premise from the start, delivering a layered lead in Locke and a standout in Spencer. Jorge Santiago's art strikes a memorable and effective balance, his conflicting structure meshing perfectly with the book's delightfully twisted sense of nostalgia. Those reared on Watterson and Miller will find much to love in this demented take, but even those who weren't will enjoy a darn good comic. Read Full Review
