Scout, Christof Bogacs, Skylar Patridge, and Nadia Shammas Turn Up the Volume in a New Comic Series

In the near future, a populist dictatorship — known simply as THE REGIME — has made music illegal, preaching a perverted version of law and order called ‘PEACE IS QUIET.’ Standing up to this onerous silence is ESSA, a teenager sick of living in the bland and colorless world the Regime has created. She’s 16, fed-up, and her only weapon is one killer rock song. Needless to say, it’s going to get noisy.

Out in 2019 from Scout Comics, Volume is created by Christof Bogacs, Skylar Patridge, and Nadia Shammas. Written by Christof Bogacs with art by Skylar Partridge.

The Story of the Headless Horeseman Gets an 80s Update with Headless from Scout Comics

Scout Comics has announced Headless, created by Alexander Banchitta and featuring artwork by Robert Ahmad. The comic series is a horror/adventure story inspired by 1980s culture, tying together the Salem Witch Trials and the creation of The Headless Horseman.

In the announcement, creator Alexander Banchitta said:

I’m thrilled to work on this book, I’ve always been a big fan of the Headless Horseman and on top of that, I’m basically obsessed with the 80’s. There’s something very fun about 80’s entertainment, it’s so easy to get lost in it and forget your everyday life, which is how I want my readers to feel when they pick this story up.

Stabbity Bunny Goes on Hiatus Due to Health Issues

Richard Rivera

Scout Comics & Entertainment has announced that their hit series, Stabbity Bunny, has been put on hiatus due to the serious health problems of writer/creator Richard Rivera.  As a result, Scout plans to cancel and re-solicit Stabbity Bunny issues #9 through #12 once they are fully completed by Richard and his team. Due to the uncertainty of Richard’s health, a realistic timetable for this is not available at this time.    

Richard’s upcoming titles, Stabbity Ever After and Shadow Play, will NOT be affected by this since the majority of both books have already been completed.

We wish Richard and his family nothing but the best and a speedy recovery.

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Aquaman/Justice League: Drowned Earth #1 (DC Comics) – The mini-event crossover between Justice League and Aquaman has been fun in that disaster film sort of way and we’re excited to see how it wraps up because it feels like there’s a lot of ground to cover with just one issue.

Dead Man Logan #1 (Marvel) – Logan is dying… again. But, you know what? When the issue is this good we’re good with it. A solid start to this epic event.

Hellboy and the BPRD 1956 #1 (Dark Horse) – A new Hellboy adventure? Yeah, we’re in. Especially as we wait for the new film.

Heroes in Crisis #3 (DC Comics) – Who did it!? We want to know and this series has us sucked in to see how the mystery plays out.

Hex Wives #2 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – An exploration of the patriarchy with witches… yeah, we’re sold. The first issue was great, we’re expecting the same with the second.

Ironheart #1 (Marvel) – The first issue is a lot of fun as RiRi takes the spotlight and begins to stand out from under various shadows. A fantastic first issue that’s perfect for new readers and long time fans.

Marvel Action: Spider-Man #1 (IDW Publishing/Marvel) – Marvel goes all-ages through IDW?! Marvel has been farming out various aspects of their comics and the latest has us intrigued.

Monarchs #1 (Scout Comics) – Four young geniuses are tasked with discovering and instituting an ideal method of leadership to make a utopian society that the inhabitants wish to create. Um, sold.

Old Lady Harley #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue caught us off guard as to how much fun it was. So, we’re expecting more of that with the second.

Quincredible #1 (Lion Forge Comics) – Quinton, a high school sophomore, is looking to live his best life by moonlighting as a superhero. The catch? His power is invulnerability . . . and that’s the only power he has. Sounds interesting to us!

The Warning #1 (Image Comics) – An extraterrestrial threat emerges and must be stopped. We’re always game for good sci-fi action.
