Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl, Clerks) returns to Image Comics after a long sabbatical, bringing a new chapter in GRRL SCOUTS, just in time for camp out season this May.
The new story, GRRL SCOUTS: MAGIC SOCKS, will see Gwen, Daphne, and Rita reunite for a “pulse-pounding psychedelic adventure through the streets of Freak City.”
“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…”
This first issue is stuffed to the gills with an action-packed story, bonus art, soundtrack, sketchbook, and a behind-the-scenes commentary.
GRRL SCOUTS: MAGIC SOCKS #1 hits stores on Wednesday, May 17th.
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.”
