This Wednesday, Image Comics has the debut of Jim Mahfood’s GRRL SCOUTS: MAGIC SOCKS. “Working on Grrl Scouts: Magic Socks has been an absolute blast for me, the most fun I’ve had doing comics, without a doubt! The freedom that comes as a creator working with Image Comics can’t be matched anywhere else,” said Mahfood. “The end result is, we the creators get to go completely buck wild, have fun, and express ourselves in the purest way possible. And that fun is evident on the printed page. I hope readers will be willing to go on this bizarre and eye-poppin’ adventure with me. This is just the beginning of what I plan to do with the Grrl Scouts comic book universe…”
Here’s a look at the covers, storyline and preview pages for this week’s new release from Image Comics on New Comic Book Day…
New Release for the week of May 17th, 2017
GRRL SCOUTS: MAGIC SOCKS #1
In GRRL SCOUTS: MAGIC SOCKS, readers join Gwen, Daphne, and Rita as they reunite for a pulse-pounding psychedelic adventure through the streets of Freak City. This first issue is stuffed to the gills with an action-packed story, bonus art, soundtrack, sketchbook, and a behind-the-scenes commentary. Plus, a variant cover by the one and only Skottie Young (I HATE FAIRYLAND, Fortunately, The Milk). Pure fun! Pure flavor!
Select praise for GRRL SCOUTS:
“I still remember when the first issue of Grrl Scouts hit. It made me crazy how good it was. The fun of Tank Girl dipped in hash oil and rolled in a classic 007 film. Put on some Bad Brains or Pharcyde and enjoy the great fun.”
“Jim Mahfood’s work is expressive and intense and crazy and irreverent and fierce and sexy and I love it to death.”
