Action Lab's Crossover Event of 2016, ACTIONVERSE, Has Arrived
The crossover can be enjoyed not just by fans, who finally get to see characters from the Action Lab’s creator-owned universe come face-to-face for the first time, but to newcomers as well. There’s a hero for everyone in this story, from Molly Danger, a young girl stranded on Earth away from her alien home world, to Virtue, a superhero whose moral compass is broken. The event has compelling moments and a sharp sense of humor.
Designed as a point of entry for each concept, every ACTIONVERSE issue is a “#1”. The first three issues include:
ACTIONVERSE FEATURING THE F1RST HERO #1 is by creator/writer Anthony Ruttgaizer (F1RST HERO) with art by newcomer Marco Renna, Lee Moder/Fred C. Stresing (regular cover) . The fate of the second Malice from FRACTURE (Volume One) is discovered here.
ACTIONVERSE FEATURING MOLLY DANGER #1 is written and drawn by Jamal Igle (SUPERGIRL / THE TERMINATOR / ACTIONVERSE #0), Cover by Igle and Ross Hughes . Jake Roth, after being forced by the second Malice to transport to our universe’s Canada, meets Molly Danger. Virtue (from FRACTURE) also makes an appearance.
ACTIONVERSE FEATURING FRACTURE #1 is written by Shawn Gabborin (FRACTURE, PUPPET MASTER) with artwork and cover by Chad Cicconi (FRACTURE). Virtue from FRACTURE makes some waves in Midnight Tiger’s hometown of Apollo Bay and takes on the Guild of Pain.
