Scout Comics – Direct to Retailer Program + June 2020 Solicitations

Scout Comics have already started to give back to retailers. Anything you buy from them right now from their online shop, 50% is given to retailers.

Now they’re working on a direct to retailer program. Keep reading for the Press Release sent out by Scout.



Press Release:

Team Scout has been working diligently this past month figuring out a plan on how to turn the lemons we’ve all been given into some delicious tasting lemonade.

We’ve been watching and listening carefully to both our retail partners and other comic publishers in recent weeks in hopes to learn from the successes and failures of new distribution plans they all have been coming up with.

After many brainstorming sessions, we here at Scout think we’ve come up with a plan that will not only help us and the amazing creators we represent, but also help our comic shop partners and our fans as well.

Starting tomorrow (May 1, 2020) we plan on offering our retail partners a chance to order new Scout Comic content.  These comics will be released twice a month starting in June from one of our print partners (Comic Impressions) who are only a few miles away from our headquarters here in Fort Myers Florida.

Check out all the new titles and the old title “CATCH-UP” packs below! After you do, please reach out to your local comic retailer via phone, email, or social media over the the next two weeks (Final Order Cutoff for them is the May 14th) letting them know which comics you want them to add to your pull list.

If your local shop isn’t aware of this new direct to retailers program, please have them email us at store@scoutcomics.com for more info!

There’s no such thing as a perfect plan, but the best plans are built to be adaptable/changeable in my opinion and we plan on putting our best foot forward. Again, I hope everyone the best and please let us know if we can help in any other ways!

Yasmeen’s Shia family barely escapes, while Yasmeen us captured by terrorists and sees her uncle executed. Yasmeen is sold to an ISIS fighter as a slave and must relinquish her innocence in order to save her three new Yazidi friends who are punished with starvation.

(C/A) Jae Lee

A wrong turn down a dead end road. A car that won’t start. An unspeakable evil emerges from the darkness. No phones. No weapons. No escape. Think you’ve seen this all before? Think again.

When a girls softball team takes a shortcut through the Florida Everglades, they veer off the path towards a night they’ll never forget – drinking, dancing – one last hurrah before college starts and they go their separate ways.

When they stumble into a trap set by a murderous cult, the stage is set for a night of blood-soaked carnage, but the cult has never dealt with victims who are ready to fight back.

(W) Kevin Cuffe
(A) Walter Ostlie
(C/A) Jorge Corona

The last we saw of Metalshark Bro, dude was transformed back into a regular shark that swam off into the sunset.

It was a classic revenge mission: he killed A LOT of people, got the giant floating eyeball, ate a lot of grub, and defeated Satan’s nephew.

Unfortunately, this victory was short-lived. A demon hamster kidnapped his bestie, so now he’s forced out of his sharky-sabbatical to fight off Cthulhu dudes, mutant alligators, magic demons, and his own aggression.

In the Lands of High Adventure, brave bands of heroes undertake dangerous quests in search of fame and fortune.

The exploits of these fearless explorers, who dare delve into the deepest of dungeons, will be sung about by the bards for eons. This is not their story.

No, this is a tale of what happens when well-intentioned groups of would-be adventurers recruit the wrong kind of “hero,” the dreaded Murder Hobo. Selfish assassins who thrive on illicit acts and unprovoked bursts of violence, these agents of chaos can foil even the best-laid plans.

Follow the exploits of Drunk-o and Nymph-o, a pair of Murder Hobos with different methods, but the same goal: to keep all the loot for themselves.

When some children find themselves endangered while witnessing an illegal scavenger mineral hunt a protector rises from the murky depths of the wasteland to exact retribution.

In this grimy horror romp, Francois, a stunning middle-aged woman, has developed a worsening affliction and seeks a young caretaker to upkeep her lavish creole mansion deep in the mystic bayou of Louisiana.

Kenny, a teenage halfwit looking for a summer job, stumbles right to her doorstep. Free rent, free meals, high pay, easy work, and a provocative boss… what’s there for Kenny to refuse?

Well, there’s the blood-covered kitchen spilling over with raw meat and the bolt-locked steel-plated attic door he’s restricted access to. Are these red flags worth the risk of missing out on a wild summer romance?

A doomed ship infested with demonic rats, an elixir of life that devolves people into blood craving monsters, and a nefarious necklace with apocalyptic properties all await you inside.

But to do this would require sacrificing Alejandro. Is she willing to bear the cost?

Meanwhile, resentment continues to build between Elita and her mother when Elita discovers that by killing changelings she is condemning the humans whose forms they have taken to forever be banished to the Changeling’s dying home world, never to return.
