The Life and Death of the Brave Captain Suave is Coming Soon from Scout
Scout Comics has announced The Life and Death of the Brave Captain Suave. The series is 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.
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.
The Life and Death of the Brave Captain Suave is written by Joseph Sieracki with art by Kelly Williams, lettering by Taylor Esposito, and edited by Andrea Lorenzo Molinari.
