The Standard #3 Debuts in April!

It’s been a long time coming, but the time is nearly upon us!  That’s right, The Standard #3 is complete, and has gone to the printers.  I’m hoping to have it available in time for the Glasgow Comic Toy Fair at the Queen Margaret Union on Saturday 7th April.  So, if all goes to plan, that will be the third issue’s worldwide debut.  Whatever happens, though, expect The Standard #3 to hit Forbideen Planet, A1 Comics and Plan B Books in Glasgow in early April.

For readers outside of Glasgow, I’m afraid the wait will be a little longer.  ComixTribe has big news regarding the future of The Standard, which I hope to share with you all next week.  But in preparation for that, we will be phasing out the comic’s availability via digital and print-on-demand formats.  I apologise for any inconvenience, but keep your eyes on this site for iminent updates!

In the meantime, here is an exclusive preview of The Standard #3, written by me, drawn by Jonathan Rector, colored by Mike Gagnon, lettered by Kel Nuttall, edited by Steven Forbes, and published by ComixTribe:

Action Lab - Don't Sleep On The Hammer

Jack McGriskin is a private detective with a strong right arm and a penchant for sticking his nose into other people’s problems.

When a missing person he’s been hired to find turns up dead, he stumbles onto a network of corruption stretching from the streets of Boston to the halls of Congress itself, and the trail takes him back into a world he left behind…

Murder, mystery, superhuman beings and so much more can be found in Jack Hammer: Political Science. The independent comic series by the team of Brandon Barrows and Ionic receives its first ever completed collected edition, courtesy of Action Lab Entertainment.

Jack Hammer: Political Science is now available for pre-order (Diamond Order Code APR120744) with a June 2012 release in comic book shops, and will also be available via Graphicly, Comics Plus (iVerse), Kindle, Kobo, Nook, the Apple Bookstore, Google Books and additional digital distribution outlets.

Ain’t It Cool News calls Jack Hammer “A fun, genre twisting tale… Barrows and Ionic have created something which can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the mainstream fare…”

Comix Tribe says that Jack Hammer has “Intriguing character work and the art is incredible.”

Don’t sleep on the Hammer. Jack Hammer. Coming to a store near you this June.


Action Lab Entertainment was founded in 2010 by a group of indie-maverick comic creators with the sole intent to bring the world the most action packed, most thought-provoking, most entertaining comics available, thereby ushering in a new age of world peace under the dominating, yet benign control of the Action Lab. Action Lab Entertainment is the public front for all the activities of the Action Lab and its members. Although most of the Action Lab’s activities remain classified, Action Lab Entertainment can disclose that two of its many functions are the marketing of comic books through various sales outlets, and the expansion of their domination into other mediums.
