by Staff

 

Image Comics have announced that Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl, Clerks) is going to bring GRRL Scouts back to comics in May with “Magic Socks“.

Mahfood whose brand is described as “Visual Funk”, is known for mixed media work and wide-reaching design, alongside comics. He sings the praises of working with Image for the “freedom” it has entailed, and says:

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…

GRRL Scouts: Magic Socks will follow characters Gwen, Daphne, and Rita as they reunite for a “pulse-pounding psychedelic adventure through the streets of Freak City”. The first issue is slated to contain bonus art, a soundtrack, a sketchbook, and also behind-the-scenes commentary.
The first issue also already has a variant cover from the great Skottie Young:

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.
