This September, Image Comics will be bringing us Scales & Scoundrels, a new series from writer Sebastian Girner (Shirtless Bear Fighter) and comics/storyboard artist Galaad with letterer/designer Jeff Powell.
Swords & Scoundrels features treasure hunter Luvander who’s sick of being broke. Seeking gold and glory, she sets off for a fabled dungeon, “the Dragon’s Maw,” which holds great wealth, or possible doom. She thinks she’s setting off for riches, but her journey takes another direction when a secret she holds may be alter the fate of the land.
Writer Sebastian Girner says:
Scales & Scoundrels is a dream project for Galaad, Jeff, and myself. We are crafting a deep and wondrous world for readers to get lost in, creating heroes, villains, and rogues to love and loathe, and spinning tales that will delight and entertain, shock and inspire. A fantasy adventure comic for readers of all ages to escape into, and bring a piece of magic back with them into their lives.
S&S is everything we want to bring to a comic series: the joyous fun, the gripping action, the thrill of adventure, the sense of wonder, the dramatic moments, the high stakes, the epic turning-points, and the inspiring destinies. We don’t want the readers to just enjoy this story, we want them to embark with us and share in the adventure of a lifetime. That’s what I love about comics. Just a drip of ink on paper—endless stories and memories.
Here’s a rather substantial preview of interior art on the first issue of the series:
Scales & Scoundrels #1 arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, September 6th and the final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, August 14th.
