MAHFOOD RETURNS TOCREATOR-OWNED COMICS WITH NEWGRRL SCOUTS: MAGIC SOCKS

Here is one I am personally interested in as I love Jim Mahfood’s art. Finally got to meet him this past year at NYCC. He has a very unique style that isn’t for everyone. 

Image Comics is pleased to announce Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl, Clerks) has come home to creator-owned comics for the first time in years with the glorious return of GRRL SCOUTS, set to hit shelves this May. 

“Working on Grrl Scouts: Magic Socks has been an absolute blast for me, the most fun I’ve had doing comics, without a doubt! The freedom that comes as a creator working with Image Comics can’t be matched anywhere else,” said Mahfood. “The end result is, we the creators get to go completely buck wild, have fun, and express ourselves in the purest way possible. And that fun is evident on the printed page. I hope readers will be willing to go on this bizarre and eye-poppin’ adventure with me. This is just the beginning of what I plan to do with the Grrl Scouts comic book universe…”

In Grrl Scouts: Magic Socks, readers join Gwen, Daphne, and Rita as they reunite for a pulse-pounding psychedelic adventure through the streets of Freak City. 

This first issue is stuffed to the gills with an action-packed story, bonus art, soundtrack, sketchbook, and a behind-the-scenes commentary. Plus, a variant cover by the one and only Skottie Young (I HATE FAIRYLAND, Fortunately, The Milk). Pure fun! Pure flavor!

GRRL SCOUTS: MAGIC SOCKS #1 Cover A by Mahfood (Diamond Code MAR170683) and Cover B by Young (Diamond Code MAR170684) hit stores on Wednesday, May 17th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, April 24th. 

Select praise for GRRL SCOUTS:

 
“I still remember when the first issue of Grrl Scouts hit. It made me crazy how good it was. The fun of Tank Girl dipped in hash oil and rolled in a classic 007 film. Put on some Bad Brains or Pharcyde and enjoy the great fun.”
—Rick Remender 

“Jim Mahfood’s work is expressive and intense and crazy and irreverent and fierce and sexy and I love it to death.”
—Bill Sienkiewicz

    Excited about this one as well. I love when writers include soundtracks in their comics as it let’s you get inside their world to see what motivates them.

  2. Matt Riley says:

    Artwork reminds me of Sienkiewicz, not surprised he has commented on the series.

    Awesome! I love his art and he was wicked nice when I had him sign some things at boston comic con.
