SDCC 2016: Scout Comics At Comic-Con

Scout Comics and Entertainment, the home of HENCHGIRL, ELASTICATOR and SOLARMAN, among many other exciting titles, is proud to announce two new comic book series and two new hires to its growing roster, as well as three amazing comic books that hit stores nationwide today! Coming this fall is GIRRION #1 by Tom Lintern.  It’s a sweeping sci-fi fantasy story of a hero's journey in a distant world in a distant time, a saga told through the eyes of Jarra, a poor factory worker who dreams of escaping his world of endless toil. His wish comes true, though not in a way he would have ever wanted, when his city is attacked by a dark entity called the Halodron. He escapes the conflict, but only to be thrust into a war of other-worldly magic and weaponry!

Also hitting comic stores this fall is FISH EYE #1, written by Massimo Rosi with art by Stefano Cardoselli.  It’s the story of a small town cop and family man named Travis.  He also happens to be the star of a reality show that follows his police exploits in his small town.  The only problem is that ratings are slipping.  When a group of killers target Travis, the small town cop must go to war to protect himself and his family, while trying to figure out who's really after him.  After all, ratings are king, no matter who gets hurt... or killed.  It’s THE TRUMAN SHOW meets DIE HARD!
