Jay Faerber And Jamal Igle's Venture Republished By Action Lab In June

Action Lab Entertainment are republishing a new superhero comic book in June, Venture, by veteran creators Jay Faerber and Jamal Igle. Of course when they first published the comic book, they weren't quite so veteran.

Originally published by Image Comics in 2003, it lasted for four issues. Maybe it might continue a little longer this time

Twisting the classic Superman story, Venture sees a newspaper reporter blackmailing a superhero after discovering his secret identity.

The publisher also sees a new Princeless series by Jeremy Whitley, Emily Martin and Brett Grunig.

Here are all of Acton Lab's June 2015 solicitations…
