As a youth, Drexler was ostracized by his community, evicted for crimes he allegedly committed. Now as a kinetic agent for Jupiter Security Branch, he will return to his home town to confront his past and help the public that despises him…


Or will he? For Drexler is a hunted man and in his possession is a stolen weapon, a conduit of mass devastation. And one ruthless arms dealer with dark intentions is determined to have it no matter the cost. Willing even to track him down all the way to the edge of nowhere to get it back…

I'm thrilled to have my comic Drexler be a part of the SCOUT Comics library! We're gonna do BIG things with this one!

 

 
DOOMSPEAKER Is Coming This Winter From SCOUT COMICS!

DOOMSPEAKER Is Coming This Winter From SCOUT COMICS!

Logline:

A boy with the ability to foretell the manner of a person’s death joins with a traveling carnival that hides dark magic and even darker secrets.

Meet the Team:

Neil Allen Moherman (Cog & Flame)

Walter Ostlie (Metalshark Bro, Shiver Bureau)

Chas! Pangburn (Strayed, Metalshark Bro)

The Story…

When Jarden’s traveling carnival touches down in a small town, he discovers a boy with the ability to foretell the manner of a person’s death. Jarden is fearful of the boy’s role in the prophecy of a Doomspeaker. After the boy’s father, the town sheriff, hangs a member of the carnival, Jarden destroys the town with dark magic and the boy joins the carnival so Jarden can keep an eye on him. Jarden’s carnival continues its journey with the sheriff following and killing any magical beings who get in his way. Along their travels it becomes evident the traveling carnival hides dark magic and even darker secrets. 

Quotes:

Walter Ostlie: "A weird carnival, a sinister prophecy, and magic. What else can you really ask for!"

Chas! Pangburn: "Carny X-Men during the Old West. An elevator pitch like that seems like the typical schlock you'd see in the early 90's. In execution, Neil and Walter have crafted a serious tale about latent abilities, curiosities, prejudices, family, and (literal) "barking irons." Giddy-up and pre-order before this one's a goner.

Scout Comics Proudly Presents ORSON WELLES: WARRIOR OF THE WORLDS!

Scout Comics Proudly Presents ORSON WELLES: WARRIOR OF THE WORLDS!

Logline:

"Orson Welles: Warrior of the Worlds" is a comic/graphic novel series about Orson Welles and his secret life defending Earth from aliens.

 

CREATORS

Writer: Milton Lawson.

Credits: Thompson Heller: Detective Interstellar, Roger Ebert and Me.

Artist: Erik Whalen.

Credits: Spirit Drifters, Dis Connect.

 

SYNOPSIS

“Orson Welles: Warrior of the Worlds” is a graphic novel series with the premise that Orson Welles's legendary “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast was not a prank: an alien invasion really happened. After Welles's first interaction with aliens, he joins an organization that defends Earth from extraterrestrial threats and lives a double life as a film director by day, alien-hunter by night.

The structure of the story is inspired by “Citizen Kane.” When Orson Welles dies, he leaves Paula, a lifelong friend and filmmaking collaborator, a clue that leads her to search for answers to many mysteries Welles left behind. She soon finds herself in over her head - amidst secret government agents, laser guns, and powerful alien technology. Her curiosity puts her on an irresistible path to adventure. Film lovers will find several easter eggs and Welles aficionados will notice thematic parallels between our alien-hunting warrior and the maverick film director.

 

QUOTE

"I'm a devoted cinephile and a long-time fan of Orson Welles, it's a dream come true to be able to tell a story starring Welles. I'm thrilled by the opportunity to work with Scout Comics. METALSHARK BRO and CANOPUS are comic titles that have inspired me with their inventiveness and ability to use the comics medium to tell imaginative, original stories." -Milton Lawson

SH*TSHOW Is Coming Soon From SCOUT COMICS!

SH*TSHOW Is Coming Soon From SCOUT COMICS!

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.

Meet the Team:

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.

 

COMING THIS JULY FROM SCOUT COMICS. GRIT!

COMING THIS JULY FROM SCOUT COMICS. GRIT!

Logline:


When an aging monster hunter comes up against a foe that can’t be felled with the swing of his axe, he’s forced to face the unintended consequences of his brutal style of problem solving. Southern-fried sword and sorcery!


The Team:


Writer - Brian Wickman (Big White)

Artist - Kevin Castaniero (Death Saves Anthology)

Colorist - Simon Gough (Ringside, G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes)

Letterer - Micah Myers (Dead Beats, Youth)


Story Summary:


Old Man Barrow, known best for his sour attitude and his ruthless efficiency, bites off more than he can chew when a routine troll-hunting gig goes awry, landing him in the clutches of a backwoods doomsday cult. Ignorant to the true nature of the malign forces at work, Barrow is forced to team up with Ari, a hot-headed young witch dead set on breaking him of his ultra-violent habits. Swamp hags and goblin gangs be damned, it’ll be a miracle if these unlikely allies can make it through this mess without killing each other!


From Writer Brian Wickman


GRIT is a goofy, pulpy fantasy adventure with a lot of heart, and I’m thrilled to be releasing it with the fine folks at Scout. I have a tremendous fondness for fantasy that lets itself have some fun, and this series is a blood-soaked, goblin-infested love letter to the genre. I’ve had a blast working with this team, and it’s clear on every page just how much fun we’ve had building this world together.


From Artist Kevin Castaniero


Fantasy was something I always admired but never felt like I could quite pull off art-wise until Brian sent me ideas for this little story titled GRIT. I felt at home in that world, like Barrow and I had been buddies for a while; I was just along for the journey. A lot of long nights and early mornings went into this book and I hope it shows. Everyone who touched this story gave it hell and I could not be more proud to be a part of it. Cheers.

COMING THIS JUNE, The Powerful Story of YASMEEN From SCOUT COMICS!

COMING THIS JUNE, The Powerful Story of YASMEEN From SCOUT COMICS!

Logline:

After rejoining her family in America after surviving two years of slavery under the ISIS terrorist regime in Mosul, an Iraqi teenage girl must overcome the horrors of the past in an attempt to find herself again.

 

Meet the Team:

Created and Written by: Saif A. Ahmed 

Artist: Fabiana Mascolo

Letterer: Robin Jones

Script Editor: Travis Czap

 

The Story…

Split between two times in her life, Yasmeen tells the story of an Iraqi girl who survives slavery in the ISIS terrorist regime in Mosul. Yasmeen was a happy 16-year-old until she was captured by ISIS invading forces and was forced to find the courage within herself to endure slavery. After surviving long two years of slavery, she is freed, but has become a different person. Unable to connect to the things that she loved before, she must go through a different kind of struggle, as she tries to adjust to the normal life with her family as refugees in a foreign country, America.

 

From creator Saif A Ahmed:

I am honored to join Scout Comic's amazing team of creators. I am also very excited that I will be able to tell a story that gives a real depiction of refugees, showing them as complicated people where I based a lot of the main family's dynamics, clothes and look off my own family and families I know.

This story of a modern tragedy, where a pure force of evil subjected tens of thousands of young women to slavery, is told from the personal point of view of the protagonist, Yasmeen, who represents thousands of real-life brave women who didn't need super powers to be called heroes.

Despite the harsh subject, the focus will not be on the actual violence and sexual assaults, but rather on the aftermath and its influence on the victims.

SCOUT COMICS Proudly Presents SOULSTREAM, A New ALL AGE SCOOT Imprint Title

SCOUT COMICS Proudly Presents SOULSTREAM, A New ALL AGE SCOOT Imprint Title

FROM SCOUT CEO, BRENDAN DENEEN:
As the CEO of a comic book company, I've seen many, many submissions over the years.  I open every single proposed comic book series sent to Scout with excitement... is this one going to be our next big hit? Am I going to fall in love with this one the way I fell in love with Marvel and DC titles back in the 80s when I was a kid? Even when we pass on projects, I'm always impressed with the time and care creators put into their work.
Even further, though, it's not often that I'm genuinely surprised by a submission. But when it DOES happen, it's a pretty great feeling.  
Case in point.  SOULSTREAM by Saida Woolf. 
It's a superhero comic book with a female protagonist.  It's stylized and cool.  It feels fresh and original.
Oh, and it was written and drawn by a fifteen year old.
That's no typo.  Saida is a high school student with talent to spare.  On top of being a... you know.. full time student, she also creates comics and came in first place in her 7th grade science fair, beating over 700 other entrants.
It's a privilege to announce SOULSTREAM and I'm proud that Scout gets to be the publisher who introduces Saida to the world.  When she's writing and drawing Black Widow and Wonder Woman in the future... when  SOULSTREAM ends up as the #1 new animated streaming show in the world... I'll look back and remember that feeling when I first opened the PDF that Saida sent to us.
LOGLINE
Marie and Markus discover an alternate dimension known as the Mirror World where their entire city has been destroyed and replaced by a volcanic wasteland. Marie is contacted by the Mage Goddess who gives her a magical Ocean Bracelet that transforms Marie, allowing her to control water as the superhero Soulstream in order to help save it.
