Scout Comics is going all-out in 2020 with the launch of a new imprint called Nonstop. Assassin & Son: Path of Vengeance will be part of it from writers Shad Gaspard and Marc Copani (Former WWE Superstars) and artist Eder Messiah.
Co-writer Shad Gaspard says:
This project means a lot to Marc and myself. After Marc was let go from the company (WWE), Writing Assassin & Son helped us both find a new career path as writers. I’ve always been a huge fan of Japanese manga as well as classic literature. Plus, I’ve been traveling the world since I was 19 years old so I was able to come up with unique characters from a multi-cultural perspective. I think fans are going to really like the authenticity of these characters, as well as the badass action on every other page.
Assassin & Son: Path of Vengeance follows Donovan Braddock, a one-man killing machine working for the assassin team known as The Horsemen in New York City. When he tries to leave the assassin life his wife is murdered right in front of him and his son. With nothing to live for and everything to fight for, Braddock and his son set out on a quest for revenge against the men who destroyed their lives.
Co-writer Marc Copani adds:
I’m extremely excited that Scout Comics is breathing life into our epic, action-packed story! Assassin & Son is dark and gritty but captures an epic story of hope, too. Shad and I are huge movie fans, so when we got to work on Assassin & Son, we were able to blend all of these diverse stories we were fans of into one pretty kick-ass book!
No official release date has been set for Assassin & Son: Path of Vengeance, but we can expect it in the Spring of 2020.
Scout Comics President James Haick says:
We’re really excited to work with not one but two former WWE Superstars. What’s better than a father and son story? We think fans are in for a real thrill ride when the action-packed Assassin & Son makes its Nonstop! debut in 2020. We love Shad and Marc’s story and we think everyone else will, too!
