Scout Comics Announces ‘Agent Of W.O.R.L.D.E.’ For Summer 2022
by Brendan M. Allen
Scout Comics has announced Agent of W.O.R.L.D.E. for June 2022, from writer Deniz Camp, line artist Filya Bratukhin, color artist Jason Wordie, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.
‘Horny robots! Super-evolved orangutan bosses! Joyriders from the 26th Century! Nothing phases Philip Blank, top agent for the sci-fi spy organization known as W.O.R.L.D.E.! But lately, Philip’s been wondering if there isn’t more to life than saving the world through creative violence. What is Philip hiding from WORLDE, and how far will he go to keep it hidden? The most beautifully bizarre book of the year is here!’
“We wanted this to be a book in the tradition of Geof Darrow’s Hard Boiled or Shaolin Cowboy,” said Deniz Camp. “Big ideas and big feelings; high-scifi, and inventive action. It’s taken years to get it just right, but that effort has resulted in something surprising and special.”
“Working on each page turned out to be a little adventure with its own challenges and interesting discoveries,” added Filya Bratukhin. “And, perhaps, this is the most important thing I would like to express… That the reader, too, should go on an adventure in the pages of our story. May they find Waldo there! Who knows? (Not a Spoiler).”
Each of Agent of W.O.R.L.D.E.’s four issues focuses on a different mission and tells a complete, stand-alone story, with characters and consequences from each installment snowballing into the next. At the heart of the series is Philip Blank himself, a spy starting to realize he might be the bad guy.
The ashcan preview is available for sale now at Scout’s online store. Agent of W.O.R.L.D.E. #1 is set to hit the spinner racks on June 22, 2022.
