Ready for something totally off the wall, bro? Then Scout Comics is bringing in the high tide with METALSHARK BRO!.
Created by Bob Frantz (Co-Founder of Loophole Comics) and Kevin Cuffe (The Elvis Adventures, IF Anthology); artwork by Walter Ostlie (Shiver Bureau, Haxor) and Shawn Greenleaf (Escape From Jesus Island) bring something new and deadly to comic store shelves this April.
The hit book from Kickstarter comes to Scout, are you ready? METALSHARK BRO! takes place off the coast of Bali where sharks swim along, casually looking for their next meal. Beelzbra, the horrific nephew of Satan himself, interrupts this tranquil patch of mother nature by turning one of the deadly fish into an anthropomorphic shark with a penchant for brutal murder. Wanting nothing more than to be turned back into the happy, swimming creature he was, METALSHARK BRO must collect nine cursed souls for the wretched little demon before he will turn METALSHARK BRO back.
“At its very core, METALSHARK BRO! is a tale of honor,” said METALSHARK BRO! Co-Creator Bob Frantz. “Far too often, those who are lacking in honor get ahead by stepping over or selling out anyone for even the smallest taste of success. This mentality may lead to some victories, but they’re short lived. The tale of METALSHARK BRO! shows that enduring the harder, more honorable path can be longer and far more brutal. But it’s a path that teaches friendships, valuable lessons, real honor and a whole lot of heavy metal! We are incredibly excited to be part of the Scout team and look forward to working together.”
“METALSHARK BRO! is exactly the kind of originality and ‘outside the box thinking’ we at Scout take great pride in,” said Scout President James Haick. “We firmly believe that our Scout ‘Mavericks’ will absolutely love this newest addition to our Scout library and family. METALSHARK BRO! is exactly what our fans have come to love and expect from us.”
Scout Comics was founded to discover, develop, and support content creators in addition to helping translate their projects to different platforms and mediums. The label has had several breakout hits recently, including Zinnober, Obliv18n, The Mall, The Source, and Stabbity Bunny.
