Donovan Braddock is a one-man killing unit who works with a team of covert assassins known as “The Horsemen.” When Braddock finds love, and makes a family of his own, he attempts to leave that life of violence behind. But he discovers that his old life still torments him when his wife is murdered in front of him and his young son. Now, with nothing to live for, this tragic event sends father and son on an epic journey of revenge and consequence.
Gaspard and Copani are former professional WWE wrestlers who teamed up to write ASSASSIN AND SON after retiring from wrestling. Tragically, Shad Gaspard passed away in May 2020 while swimming in Venice Beach with his young son when the two were caught in a riptide, shortly before the publication of ASSASSIN AND SON #1. Gaspard was recently inducted into the 2022 WWE Hall of Fame posthumously.
“We’re thrilled at the opportunity to bring Shad and Marc’s comic to life. What excites us creatively is the balance of hard-hitting action and emotional themes presented in the source material," said Lawrence Mott, Creative Executive at State Street.
"We met Shad at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019," said Don Handfield of Scout Comics. "He was known for his brawn in the world of wrestling, but what we were taken by was his humor, intelligence and creative genius. We were blown away by his and Marc's comic, and we're proud to bring it to the world. We are happy that his legacy has a chance to live on through this partnership with State Street."
State Street recently wrapped On the Come Up, Angie Thomas’ best-selling follow up to The Hate U Give, which they also produced. In addition, Street Street has produced the hit Barbershop franchise for MGM, Soul Food, Faster starring Dwayne Johnson, and Men of Honor starring Oscar winners Cuba Gooding Jr., Robert De Niro, and Charlize Theron, among other films.
Scout Comics & Entertainment was founded in 2015 and has over 200 titles in their catalog. Scout books have sold to Disney, Amazon Studios, and FilmNation, among others.

Logline “They saved the world. Now they struggle to pay rent.”.
Writer: Jon Parrish (Clusterf@#k) Artist: Dexter Wee (Patriot-1 and SWERVE) Colorist: Kote Carvajal (Backfired and Salty Roos) Letterer: Cristian Docolomansky (Jazz Legend, Zinnober, and The Recount) Editor: Steven Forbes
As the Mega Centurions, Cassidy, Reggie, and Thad saved the world from an alien invasion led by Prince Venkor. Unfortunately, things went downhill after that. They lost their powers and were unable to prove they were the Mega Centurions. Now, they work stressful jobs in the big city and struggle to pay the rent. Things change once they meet the Grey Knight, an interstellar mercenary and former henchman for the prince. Grey warns of a second invasion and asks for their help in protecting the Earth. Can she be trusted and can they be heroes without powers?
Quotes “This story was originally born from a joke about how the Power Rangers were able to do well in school when they were always teleporting off to fight Rita before morphing into something a little more grounded. This book has been years in the making and I’m excited for people to finally be able to see it in full after so long. We’re pleased to be working with Scout and hope that people enjoy it.” – Jon Parrish
“I just want to say that I have been a fan of super sentai since I was a kid in the eighties as well as the mecha genre and it's a dream come true to finally draw our own version of it. It's been a joy working on this book. And I hope the readers will like it.” – Dexter Wee
