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.

Our entire team cannot wait to share the beautiful madness and misadventures of Captain Suave with readers everywhere!

SCOUT COMICS UPGRADES BY THE HORNS TO CONTINUING SERIES

SCOUT COMICS UPGRADES BY THE HORNS TO CONTINUING SERIES

SCOUT COMICS UPGRADES BY THE HORNS
TO CONTINUING SERIES
 
July 28, 2021 - Scout Comics & Entertainment is proud to announce that BY THE HORNS will now be a continuing series. The acclaimed sci-fi, fantasy adventure comic by Markisan Naso, Jason Muhr and Andrei Tabacaru is adding an extra issue to the first arc, taking the series to #8 in November. A trade paperback collection of issues #1-8 will be released in February 2022 and then the series will continue in the spring with a brand new adventure starting in #9.
 
Scout's President James Haick couldn't be more excited about the news. "We are so happy that the BY THE HORNS team has decided to continue their amazing story. The series has been both a critical and commercial success and we look forward to publishing even more stories within the fantastic universe they have created."  
 
BY THE HORNS writer Markisan Naso said there are at least three more story arcs planned that will take the series to fantastic and epic new places readers might not expect.
 
"We are so grateful to all the readers, retailers and Scout for their tremendous support for BY THE HORNS," Naso said. "We can't wait for everyone to see what we have in store for our characters beyond the initial arc. The world and the adventures get so much bigger. The scope of our series goes supernova in spring 2022!"
 
Series artist, Jason Muhr, added that BY THE HORNS was initially created as a mini-series, but the door quickly opened for additional tales. “As we worked on the book, we really fell more and more in love with the world, texting each other ideas for new creatures, new characters, new locales and new adventures, so the continuation and expansion of our story seemed like a no-brainer. There's so much more of Elodie and company's story we want to share with everyone. We're very grateful to the fans, the retailers and Scout for their support."
 
BY THE HORNS has been a hit series for Scout in 2021. Issue #1 sold out and went back to press in March, and the fantasy adventure has consistently wowed critics and readers alike with its unique setting, exciting action sequences, heart, unforgettable characters and dynamic artwork.
 
Here's what some reviewers have been saying about BY THE HORNS:
 
"This is a book with a firm and immediate grasp of its heart, and that makes all the difference. What starts with a clever idea becomes a gripping debut." – Matthew Jackson, SyFy Wire
 
"This book is utterly brilliant with this magnificent writing, characterization and mindbogglingly brilliant interior artwork." – Steven Leitman, Reading with a Flight Ring
 
"This book blew me away. Leave your expectations at the door, this is a fresh and unique tale about loss, grief, and killing some MFing monsters. Highly recommended." – Greg Licktieg, First Issue Club Podcast
 
“BY THE HORNS is a welcome breath of fresh air among the multitudes of fantasy-adventure stories, whether from a comic book or otherwise, due to its uniquely compelling story and world.” – John Wintroub, The Rich Report
 
"Quite possibly one of the most original books I’ve ever read.” – Angel Young, Wandering Nerd Girl
 
"This comic will stab you in the heart with emotion. The force of Naso’s dialogue is echoed by the fantastic art and expressionism." – Katie Liggera, Comic Book Yeti
 
“This book amazes me. I freakin’ love this book!” – Robbie Billups, Pop Culture Philosophers
 
"Badass." – Lars Gotrich, NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour
 
"It’s so good. No, it’s great. Wait, it’s amazing. It’s all of the things and will entangle you in the lives of its fictional occupants. If you’re not reading this – and I mean no offense – I question your sanity." – Blake Morgan, Blake's Buzz
 
The next issue in the series BY THE HORNS #5 is scheduled to hit comic shops on August 25. You can find print issues at your local comic shop or get caught up by purchasing print or digital copies at scoutcomics.com.
