Scout Comics Announces ‘Cities Of Magick’ For Early 2022

by Brendan M. Allen

Scout Comics has announced Cities of Magick, dropping in early 2022 from co-creators Will Tempest and Jakob Free, colorist Brad Simpson, and letterer AndWorld Design.

‘This is the Age of Magick. It is the Age of City-States and Magick Gangs and the Post-Post Apocalypse.

Our hero, a cowboy named Lev, strolls into Old York City looking for something no one’s ever seen before. He’s picked a bad time. The forces of Hyper-Priestess Isimar Rothschild, the Queen of the Chicago Conglomerate, have attacked Old York. The only person who stands in Isimar’s way is Gregor Steiner, leader of the Red Double Xs, the magick gang that protects the city from foreign invaders. 

Lev didn’t come looking for a fight, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t prepared for one. Caught in the midst of a decade-old war between two powerful gangs, Lev has to figure out where his loyalties lie, if he has any to speak of. And he has to do it all quick-like…’

“Cities of Magick is a story about cities and the people that live in them. It’s about letting go of our phones, our computers, our gizmos, and whooziwhatsits,” said writer/co-creator Jakob Free. “It’s about letting go and believing in magick. I’m honored to be able to tell this story, but more than that, I’m honored to have such an incredible partner in Will Tempest. Thanks to Scout Comics, we both have an opportunity to tell an unconventional tale in exactly the way we wanted to tell it. We couldn’t be more excited for people to read it.”
