INTRODUCING SH*TSHOW

INTRODUCING SH*TSHOW

Years after a mysterious force ripped the powers from the world’s power-enabled heroes (and villains), those left have made the best with what remains, joining together to use their powers as part of a traveling circus.

The Story…

There was once an Age of Heroes, a time Earth was protected by the demigod hero Legend and his band of heroes called Legend's Legion until one day, the three-headed demon Balam was summoned to the planet. In the ensuing fight, the powers were ripped away from any enabled beings on the planet — heroes and villains, alike. Battered, broken, and losing his entire Legion in the process, Legend was able to cobble together whatever remaining powered beings he could find but by that time, Balam was long gone.

To try coping with an all new world, the heroes banded together to form The Magnificent McCoys, a traveling circus where the performers use their powers to entertain the masses in a time where powers are rare. A god with a dying star for a heart, Legend has taken Balam’s destruction worse than anyone and has since become a crippling alcoholic. Then suddenly one day, Balam returns. Will Legend be able to stay sober long enough to use his powers and end this threat once and for all or will he give up only to doom humanity forever?

From Writer Adam Barnhardt:

First and foremost, I'd like to thank James, Brendan, and the rest of the team at Scout for opening up a slot for Shitshow in the lineup. Judging by the other books the label has to offer, Shitshow has found the perfect home alongside like titles. I'm beyond thrilled to work with the Scout team to see where we can take this book.

 

INTRODUCING MURDER HOBO!

INTRODUCING MURDER HOBO!

Every adventuring party needs a true hero, but sometimes you get a Murder Hobo instead.

The Story…

In the land of high adventure brave heroes fight to save humanity from the creatures of darkness. Despite the valiant efforts of these brave souls, a new breed of asshole has risen, the Murder Hobo. A Murder Hobo is a selfish adventure assassin driven by blood, sex, and greed. Any band of warriors unfortunate enough to recruit one soon learns that the Murder Hobo is the only one who wins out in the end. Each issue features two different tales featuring one of five Murder Hobos, each with a different specialty and power but all have one thing in common... they want all the loot for themselves.

From writer Joseph Schmalke

I got really stoned up and thought to myself...this is a good idea.  Then I got drunk and asked Jason to work on it.

From artist Jason Lynch:

SCOUT ANNOUNCES NEW SERIES LOOT FOR 2020 DEBUT!

SCOUT ANNOUNCES NEW SERIES LOOT FOR 2020 DEBUT!

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE!

SCOUT ANNOUNCES NEW SERIES

LOOT FOR 2020 DEBUT!

 

When a small-town kleptomaniac joins a government antiquity recovery division, she enters a dangerous world of treasure hunting and finds out sometimes the real treasures aren’t just priceless artifacts. Scout is releasing an ashcan preview of LOOT this weekend (Booth 2108) at Baltimore Comic Con.

 

Meet the Team:

 

From Writers Don Handfield (Dark Age, The Rift, The Source) and Richard Rayner (Knightfall, The Rift, The Devil’s Wind) and artist K Lynn Smith (Hope, Plume).

 

The Story…

 

Orphaned at birth, serial kleptomaniac Emily 'Doe' was lucky to be adopted by Viola Jackson, the cop who kept arresting her. Now grown up (sort of), Emily D. Jackson works for her newly retired mom in loss prevention at a big box superstore by day and turns her passion for theft into part time treasure hunting on the side. When Emily cracks the code of a famous explorer's journal that was leaked online, the Department of Homeland Security division tasked with recovering lost and stolen antiquities (yes, it really exists), recruits her to help them find the missing loot. Helicoptered away from her small-town life, Emily finds herself thrust into a series of thrilling global adventures facing off against international art thieves, hostile foreign governments, and rival treasure hunters -- all the while learning that the real treasures aren't priceless artifacts, but family and friends.

 

From writer Don Handfield:

 

Richard & I love ancient artifacts and the mysticism that surrounds them. LOOT allows us to dig into the actual history surrounding those objects and explore our affection for the old adventure pulp magazines that pre-dated comic books, with a wonderful female protagonist at the center of the story. Richard and I have long been fans of K Lynn Smith's art work and her ability to bring strong female characters to life - we are thrilled we get to work with her on this series.

 

From artist K Lynn Smith:

 

It’s an absolute joy to work on this book. The great team aside, the story is exciting and heartwarming, and the female lead is so funny and smart. Can’t wait for people to read it.

 

From Scout Comics Tennessee Edwards, Chief Strategy Officer:

 

It’s always great to work with Don, he’s such a great member of the Scout family! We’re glad to have Richard Rayner and K Lynn Smith on the team as well and can’t wait for everyone to see how amazing LOOT is!
