Scout Comics announces new series, new staff
Indie publisher Scout Comics released a bevy of announcements today, including the launch of two new series, new series developments, and new staff members.
Girrion is a sci-fi story featuring art and story by Tom Lintern. Girrion is the tale of Jarra, a factory worker on a far planet who hopes to someday escape the difficulties brought on by poverty and intense labor. The comic is a classic case of being careful what you wish for, though, as the city is invaded by dark forces and Jarra is thrust into conflict. Girrion will debut in October 2016.
Also to be released in October is Fish Eye, a “Truman Show meets Die Hard” comic by Massimo Rosi and Stefano Cardoselli. Fish Eye is the story of Travis, a small-town police officer and reality star whose ratings are dropping…until he’s targeted by a group of killers that wants him dead. With cameras on him, Travis must figure out who’s after him and why, all the while protecting his family.
Scout had a big day in comic releases today, with titles that included Once Our Land #1 by Peter Ricq, Elasticator #4 by A.C. Medina and Kevin Shah, and Henchgirl #9 by Kristen Gudsnuk.
Included in the release was news that Solarman, a recently launched Scout series, is being developed with producer Debra Martin Chase as a feature film and Henchgirl is under development as a television series.
Lastly, but certainly not least, Scout also announced the hiring of two new team members. Alan C. Medina (writer of Graphic Policy favorite Elasticator) has been hired as Scout’s Creative Director and Jemellee Santos has been brought on as Scout’s Publicity Director. Best wishes to both as Scout continues to grow!
