Action Lab certainly knows how to keep me entertained. I’ve been enjoying Skyward and Princeless, and can’t wait to see what they’ve got planned for future issues. Take a look at what’s coming up in February, and mark that calendar now. You won’t want to miss any of these, especially since this “Ugly Love” month features rapper/artist John “Super Ugly” Williams, who will be drawing covers for six Action Lab titles!
