A Soldier Questions What It Means To Be A Hero In ‘The Impure’

by James Ferguson

Scout Comics has announced The Impure, a sci-fi title centering on a soldier questioning what it means to be a hero when humanity is at war with an alliance of alien races. It’s written and colored by Ralf Singh, illustrated by Hannes Radke, and lettered by March Schmitz and Ralf Singh with editing by Peter Adrian Behravesh, Marc Schmitz, and Andrea Lorenzo Molinari.

Years after Nero and Minerva’s homeworld, Castor, was destroyed by aliens, the siblings join the dreaded Earth Forces, to ensure something like this will never happen again. When Minerva betrays her Nero, and all they ever believed in, it is up to Nero to stop his sister before she reaches the alien alliance. For what Minerva has stolen may well turn the tides of war and spell humanity’s downfall. Enjoy the World Premiere issue followed by the entire story collected soon after in one volume.

The Impure takes inspiration from great Japanese animation movies and video games.” says Singh. “We have mechs, spaceships, swords vs. guns and summoning giant creatures against the backdrop of traditions from western science fiction literature.”

The Impure #1 features two covers by Radke & Singh and variants by Miki Montlló and Alexander Artin. It’s set for release on March 31st, 2021.
