Everyone seems to be launching Young Adult of kids imprints right now. Well that, it appears, is where the money is. And in May, Scout Comics will be launching Scoot Presents, a one-dollar look at their brand new YA imprint, Scoot.
Scoot Presents 2020, out on May 6th, just after Free Comic Book Day (and looking suspiciously like an FCBD-rejected title) will include:
A feature episode of UNIKORN, written by Don Handfield (the Source, the Rift) and illustrated by Rafael Loureiro (The Mall).
UNIKORN is the story of Maeve "Mae" Everhart as she inherits Percy, an old horse with a strange nub on his forehead. When the horse performs a 'healing miracle' and is declared a unicorn, crowds descend on her family farm, making Mae realize the world might not be ready for a magic horse just yet. Her heartbreaking and hopeful journey with this special animal becomes a story of family healing, community and discovery of the real magic inside us all.
In addition, Scoot Presents 2020 will feature special previews of upcoming SCOOT imprint releases beginning in July 2020, including,
- LOOT by Don Handfield, Richard Rayner and K. Lynn Smith
- SENGI AND TEMBO by Giuseppe Falco
- WILD BULL AND CHIPPER by Stabbity Bunny's Richard Rivera
- SOPHIA SATURN by K.J. Kaminski and Ben Herrera
- SOULSTREAM by 15 year oldSaida Woolf.
Scoot Presents 2020 will be published in May, everything else coming in July 2020, and beyond.
