Scout Comics has announced a number of new hires and promotions as it heads into San Diego Comic-Con season. Bleeding Cool has been running a number of behind-the-scenes stories on Scout Comics of late, and we are welcome to hear more. The company has been split into different imprints that seem to operate autonomously, which has led to differing policies across the line, which has caused some upset amongst some. But for now:
Richard Rivera, writer of Stabbity Bunny and publisher of Scout Comics Scoot imprint, is now also Scout Comics Co-Publisher along with existing Co-Publisher Charlie Stickney.
Marcus Guillory, graphic designer with years of experience working in the real estate, education, and small business sectors, a former U.S. Marine and two-time graduate of the Art Institute, has been named as Scout's new Head of Design.
