Black Caravan and Scout Unleashes the Swamp Dogs
Black Caravan, the horror imprint of Scout Comics, has finally unleashed the Swamp Dogs on the world– and the world will never be the same again. The mystery campaign is over, and the cover of Swamp Dogs: House of Crows #1, by Robert Sammelin, has been revealed.
Swamp Dogs: House of Crows will jumpstart the Swamp Dogs universe. A 5 issue miniseries, it will introduce readers to the titular villains and the world which they are seeking to create. The book is a modern take that blends grindhouse, 70s and 80s horror, stoner comedies, cult classics, and midnight movies into one wild ride. The mini is a tight, funny, sexy, gory, horrific standalone story that is planned to lead into other ongoing titles, miniseries, and one-shots. It follows a budding lesbian couple and The Grunch, a goofy and fun-loving metal band, as they unwittingly stumble upon the SWAMP DOGS and their HOUSE OF CROWS.
Swamp Dogs: House of Crows Ashcan preview is now available. The first issue will be released in October 2021. Variants and exclusive covers, including by heavy metal artist Solo Macello, interior artist Kewber Baal, and Steve Wands’ (who also letters the series) first comic book cover, will be unveiled at a later date. Coloring the book is comic veteran Ruth Redmond. J.M. Brandt and Theo Prasidis will be co-writing the comic.
