Spencer & Locke 2 #2

May 15, 2019

It still impresses me how this comic integrates parts of their source material so organically, in both the plot and layout. For a comic with this kind of premise, the references can seem jarring and worked in. However, Spencer & Locke 2 has found its balance, and this issue has some great moments where they wove things in really well. We also see familiar faces from the funny pages, albeit in decidedly less funny situations. The tie was a nice touch, though.

Spencer & Locke 2 #3

Jun 12, 2019

The art just gets better with each issue; the team is really flexing their talent by taking all the right creative risks. There is such variety between the pages as the plot jumps around, yet it all ties together wonderfully. Spencer & Locke 2 #3 uses every inch of the page; you can tell they put in a lot of hours. The mutant snowmen were particularly creepy.I always really enjoy seeing more of Santiago's creative artwork. I'm also glad the snowman reference made a comeback. I recall seeing some murderous snowmen thrown into the background of an early issue, but as more of an Easter egg for Calvin and Hobbes fans. Lastly, I obviously love the Hero variant cover (feat. Mr. Rabbit); she is just channeling that Batman/Spawnenergy.

Spencer & Locke 2 #4

Jul 3, 2019

Santiago lit it up in the final issue of Spencer and Locke 2. More than once, I found myself thinking I didnt need the text in some panels because the characters body language was so on point. The layout out must have been a challenge for this one. There was a lot to get through, but they utilize every inch of real estate — leaving just enough room to break us emotionally.
