Fortunately, there is Spencer, the imaginary friend that helps Locke discern reality from fantasy. But again, he can only accomplish so much when Locke is under the influence of a cocktail of psychotropic hallucinogens.
When this series began, I thought it sweet tribute to a beloved comic strip. Sort of a “What if Calvin & Hobbes grew up?” Yes, what if they did, and lived a world slightly darker than Breaking Bad, and a tad bit more vicious than a Jack Reacher climax.
Unless I am mistaken, the conclusion comes next issue, so there’s still time to hop aboard if crime fiction is your thing. But I hope it’s not the last we see of Spencer & Locke. I’m enjoying this ride, and regret that it may end too soon. But thank you, Pepose and Santiago, for not writing to the trade. Your work is refreshing and I look forward to more.
