There's no issue of Rick Remender's gross-tastic espionage thriller The Scumbag listed in Image Comics' September 2021 solicitations, but we may have had a peek at what is to follow with a new story arc to follow the current Moonflower starting in The Scumbag #10 in October 2021. And if you liked Black Widow's recent nod to James Bond, but what yours to have a bit more of an Austin Powers flavour, via Jim Steranko, then "GoldenBrownEye" may be the upcoming Scumbag storyline for you. With Roland Boschi drawing the new story arc.
"GOLDENBROWNEYE" The world is caught in an all-out war between Scorpionus and Moonflower as the two enact their plans to force their versions of utopia on us all! Our hope for liberation is a drug addled, metalhead pervert and his flying Trans Am–Agent Scumbag! Quit being a jerk and come for one final spin with RICK REMENDER (Seven to Eternity, Deadly Class), ROLAND BOSCHI (Winter Soldier, Ghost Rider) and Ernie Ray Clementine as he sets everything right in the world for everyone! Or the exact opposite! Why would we tell you how the story ends in this blurb?!
