Action Hospital: Half-Light Bleeds is the story of Joan Michelle Basquiat as she attempts to defend the eponymous Action Hospital against cave-dudes from the distant past, time traveling gondolier-themed assassins, a human-shark clone of Abraham Lincoln, and a demon with 9 and 3/4th heads.

 My name is Dave Baker and I've been working on AH: HLB for about a year and a half. I published the original Action Hospital trade collection at San Diego Comic Con in 2016. It was 245 pages long and written by me and illustrated by 8 other artists. Comprised of 18 interconnecting short stories, Action Hospital: The Future Is A Strange Place took four and a half years to make. 

My goal for Action Hospital: Half Light Bleeds was to finish it in a year. Needless to say, that didn't happen, but we're here now. I have a 300 page book. I wrote, penciled, inked, and lettered this bad boy. I'm super excited to share it with you all.

 The above image features Sharkerham Lincoln, who is exactly what he sounds like. A shark-human hybrid clone of Ol' Mr Lincoln. Action Hospital is filled with loads of bizarre and colorful characters just like this. There's the 9 and 3/4ths Headed Demon God-Emperor, Frank Lloyd Wrong, the Robot Who Is Never Wrong, Dyole Schnarr, the wielder of the Demon's Paw, and the newly evolved Gondolier, who now goes by the name The Future, because he may or may not be the living embodiment of time itself.
