The sleeper noir hit of 2017 is getting a sequel. Spencer & Locke, described as "Calvin & Hobbes meets Sin City," will see a second series launching in Winter 2019.

Suspended by Internal Affairs, Detective Locke continues to wrestle with the demons of his past alongside his trusty partner, his talking imaginary panther Spencer. But when Spencer and Locke face Roach Riley, a scarred former soldier set on violence and terror, will their partnership become the latest casualty on Roach's hit list?

Written by David Pepose and illustrated by Jorge Santiago, Jr., the sequel will see the return of the entire creative team including colorist Jasen Smith and letterer Colin Bell.

"We've told fans from the beginning that there was a much larger universe for SPENCER & LOCKE to explore — and we're excited to expand their world further with their latest adversary, Roach Riley," Pepose said. "Half The Deer Hunter, half Heath Ledger's Joker, Roach is only the beginning of Locke's latest gauntlet, as every classic comic strip from your childhood will be fair game for parody in our action-packed sequel."

The first volume of Spencer & Locke recently earned five nominations at the 2018 Ringo Awards, including Best Series, Best Writer, Best Cover Artist, Best Colorist and Best Letterer. The series was also optioned for a movie in July 2017 by Hitman producer Adrian Askarieh.
