Helm #4

This Wednesday, July 18th, Action Lab Entertainment has the fourth issue of the Eisner-nominated fantasy comic series HELM!

Inspired by the likes of Star WarsIndiana JonesLord of the Rings, and the classic animated films of yesteryear, HELM is a globe-trotting adventure set in an ancient fantasy world that has undergone an industrial revolution. Racism and riots run rampant, “magick-makers” are mercilessly hunted, the elves have all but been eradicated, and rumors of rebellion stir amongst the half-breeds and downtrodden peoples of the Commonwealth.

Here’s a look at the cover, the storyline, and preview pages for this week’s debut from Action Lab Entertainment on New Comic Book Day! #NCBD

What people are saying about Helm:

Helm offers us endearing dialogue, flowing action and hints at
an unusually nuanced back story for its fantasy goings-on.”
(Rogues Portal)

“It’s a great fantasy story with genuine stakes for the characters, and room for comedy.
It somewhat reminds me both in tone and visually to classic Don Bluth animated films.”
(Smash Pages)

“…the world-building has been nothing short of legendary.”
