[Preview] Action Lab’s 5/30 Release: HELM #2

Helm #2

This Wednesday, May 30th, Action Lab Entertainment has the second issue of the Eisner-nominated fantasy comic series HELM!

Inspired by the likes of Star WarsIndiana JonesLord of the Rings, and the classic animated films of yesteryear, HELM is a globe-trotting adventure set in an ancient fantasy world that has undergone an industrial revolution. Racism and riots run rampant, “magick-makers” are mercilessly hunted, the elves have all but been eradicated, and rumors of rebellion stir amongst the half-breeds and downtrodden peoples of the Commonwealth.

Here’s a look at the cover, the storyline, and preview pages for this week’s debut from Action Lab Entertainment on New Comic Book Day! #NCBD


New Release for the week of May 30th, 2018



Writer: Jehanzeb Hasan
Artist: Mauricio Caballero
Letterer: DC Hopkins
Cover Artist: Mauricio Caballero

32 pgs./ T / FC  $3.99

Eldrick’s latent powers are revealed! Thrust into a seemingly inescapable predicament, Eldrick and Gwyn scramble to conceal his abilities. Meanwhile, Luna moves to intercept her target — the boy who bears the Spellsword blood — while a magi-hunting Helmar closes in on her.

What people are saying about Helm:

“It’s a great fantasy story with genuine stakes for the characters, and room for comedy.
It somewhat reminds me both in tone and visually to classic Don Bluth animated films.”
(Smash Pages)”…the world-building has been nothing short of legendary.”
(The Motley Geek)
“There’s a lot to be said for the world building that’s going on. …there’s a very deliberate attempt at individualizing not just the characters but all the locations, all the artifacts that they pick up, all of their gear… I think that adds a lot to not only the background character development and story, but also the overall world-building.”
