What people are saying about Spencer & Locke:

Spencer & Locke is going to be one of those runs we’ll look back on over the years that stood out heads and shoulders above the rest and set a new bar for creators to follow.” (IndieComiX)

“A dark and unique mash up of detective story and the beloved comic strip
that adds to the original without tarnishing it.” (The Brazen Bull)

“There’s so much that could have gone wrong with this mash-up, but Peopose and Santiago’s risky premise paid off. And it’s little wonder the movie rights have already been optioned.” (IGN)

“The creative team has been all-around great, delivering a wonderful comic book that delivers on all ends.”
(Word of the Nerd)
