Scout Comics Set To Launch Andy Serkis Myth-Inspired Comic ETERNUS

Scout Comics Set To Launch Andy Serkis Myth-Inspired Comic ETERNUS

Fort Myers, Florida – October 4, 2021 –  As first reported on Friday via the Hollywood Reporter, Scout Comics & Entertainment Holdings, Inc. along with Thunder Comics are proud to announce a new comic series called Eternus by actor/director/producer Andy Serkis.

The seven-issue Eternus, co-created with director Andrew Levitas, is inspired by myth and takes place in 360 AD, 30 years after the murder of Zeus in his own temples. Zeus’ son, Heracles, is now a depressed drunk, while the old gods struggle to stay alive after decades of Christian disruption. When Athena’s Temple is sacked by a mysterious Centurion in search of a relic once belonging to Zeus, the old gods are convinced this is Zeus’ killer. Now Heracles must sober up and protect the only witness to identify the killer.

Eternus is an expression of our fascination with foundational mythology and deeply rooted storytelling,” Serkis said in a statement. “It’s exciting to share this first glimpse into the world we have been building for so long. This is just the beginning.”

The Source/Unikorn scribe Don Handfield is writing with Anastajza K Davis. Art hails from penciler Karl Moline, inker Andy Owens and letter Dave Lanphear. Rob Prior will paint the main covers. 

A limited-edition ashcan NOW AVAILABLE for pre-order at Scout’s website and at New York Comic Con starting this Thursday, where cover artist Rob Prior will be doing a signing. There's regular edition and a very limited edition METAL cover edition available while supplies last.

 

Eternus is due out in 2022!

Creators
Artist/writer/letterer: Bryan "Peabe" Odiamar
Editor: Andrea Lorenzo Molinari
 
Synopsis
Bo is a creative in his early 30s that lives in Oakcago. Lately, he’s been feeling apathetic and directionless and tired of the repetitive character of his life. In the midst of his confusion, the one constant in his life has been a comic book character that he created and has drawn since he was a kid. Bo gets into an accident—and that's when everything changes. Around about this time, a mysterious character suddenly appears in Oakcago, but is this in the real world or simply all in Bo's head? 
  
Quote from the creator Peabe
"Thud is my love story to comics, hip hop, food, humor, and my own personal experience. This book has come from inside me, but was inspired by my family, and I'm really excited to share it with everyone. I’m super stoked that Scout Comics took a shot on me for my first story."

DANCING WITH THE DRAGON From Scout Comics Is NOW AVAILABLE!

LOGLINE:

After failing to find the American Dream in San Francisco, a wayward young couple from the UK run afoul of the Triads in an ill-conceived money-laundering scheme.

CREATORS:

WRITER – Rob MacKinnon (Deborah Daring)
ARTIST – Luca Casalanguida (James Bond, Lost Soldiers)
VARIANT COVER ARTIST – Victor Santos (Polar)
COLORS – Natalia Nesterenko (The Last Witch, Fathom)
LETTERS – Joel Rodriguez (Cthulhu Is Hard To Spell, Deathrage)

SYNOPSIS:

Connor O’Sullivan is a hapless limo driver trying to provide a better life for his girlfriend, Blythe. They came to San Francisco seeking the American Dream, but a year later they are strapped for cash and their prospects are slim. Desperate to change their fate, Connor resumes the money-laundering activities from his recently-deceased customer. Despite drawing attention from the FBI, success comes quickly and the life Connor and Blythe have always wanted seems within reach. However, Connor places his trust in the wrong person and is manipulated into a dangerous scam. Now he’s running for his life from the Triads and only Blythe and the FBI can save him. This Tarantinoesque tale culminates with a classic double-cross and a violent climax that can’t be missed!


QUOTE FROM THE CREATORS
:

From the author: "Dancing With the Dragon is an anti-hero story for people who like to root for the underdog and love a good romance. While serving as a cautionary tale about getting involved with organized crime, it also provides hope that we all have the power to change our fate. This story also pays tribute to the old adage that behind every great man is an even greater woman!”
 
From the cover artist: "Dancing With The Dragon has the better parts of Takeshi Kitano's yakuza films and the Heroic Bloodshed genre of Hong Kong cinema. Damn good writing and even better art. It's a book you need to read!"

COMMANDER RAO Launches In November From Scout Comics!

COMMANDER RAO Launches In November From Scout Comics!

LOGLINE:

On the final dawn of an exhausted war, a rogue commander sets out on a warpath to confront a tyrannical baron.

CREATORS:

Story/Art: Fell Hound
Lettering/Logo: LetterSquids

SYNOPSIS:

Set in a sci-fi future after a decade of warfare against the despot Baron Klaus, a rogue embittered soldier decides to storm the Baron’s manor and kill him herself. A year later, stories are sung of her heroism, but the mystery of her motives remains. Thus begins the tale of COMMANDER RAO, a thrilling, fast-paced action comic of how violence begets violence, and how all the heroics of warfare are meaningless in the light of what has been lost.

QUOTE FROM FELL HOUND & OTHERS
:

“I never thought what began as an exercise to practice fight scenes would end up being my first published one-shot! With Commander Rao, I wanted to make something bombastic yet personal, a comic that would have you on the edge of your seat but leave you clutching your heart in the end. I hope readers will enjoy the fruits of those efforts. Being a fan of many Scout titles and creators over the past few years, it's all too exciting to have Commander Rao be a part of that roster! Thank you for believing in my comic.” - Fell Hound
"A singular vision that grabs you by the collar and demands your attention to the last page" - Comic Book Yeti

"Unbelievably Gorgeous" - Pipedream Comics

"Gripped my heart in a way many comics had never done before" - AP2HYC 

"A must read for fans of action comics" - Sequential Magazine 
AWARDS & ACCOLADES

Earlier in the year Commander Rao won the Sequential Magazine Award (canadian indie comics award) for "Best Comic Book" and Fell Hound also won runner up for "Best Cartoonist".  
It was also featured last year on A Place to Hang Your Cape's "Favorite Indie Comics of 2020" list.

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF THE BRAVE CAPTAIN SUAVE Is Coming Soon From Scout Comics!

Logline:

A modern-day retelling of Don Quixote, in which a homeless man imagines himself a Golden Age–style superhero and drags a skeptical young drug addict on a series of adventures.

Team:

Joseph Sieracki - Writer (A Letter to Jo)

Kelly Williams - Artist (The Dark, Creepy, A Letter to Jo, Bountiful Garden)

Taylor Esposito - Letterer (Batman, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Constantine)

 Andrea Lorenzo Molinari -- Editor

 

Story:

Set in Cleveland, the series follows a homeless man who lost his job and then his family, driving him into a vagrant state of disillusionment and comic book fantasy. Yet his actions will leave readers questioning who is really crazy. Is it so insane to want to help people, or does the true madness lie with those who see suffering and choose to look the other way? The story loosely follows the satirical, metatextual plot of Cervantes’s classic.
