August 26, 2004, Runnemede, NJ – Adding
another classic property to their growing and impressive roster,
Dynamic Forces, Inc. announced today that they had struck
a deal with creator/writer/artist Timothy Truman in regards
to his masterwork – Scout!
planned for production include: Scout Collections, Posters,
Lithographs, Statues, and Action Figures.
Scout, originally published by Eclipse Comics
between the years of 1985 through 1989, told the story of
Emanuel Santana, an Apache warrior doing battle with crooked
bureaucrats and mythological monsters in a post holocaust
The title earned several fan nominations for
"Best New Series" and "Favorite Artist,"
and won a Spanish "Haxtur" Award. Scout proved to
be popular and influential. Native American readers and educators
have applauded the book for its respectful, but non-patronizing
portrayal of Southwestern Indian culture and beliefs. Because
various names, issue titles, plots, and themes in the book
frequently paid tribute to rock and blues music and musicians,
SCOUT was also a favorite comic book of rock musicians like
Jerry Garcia and Carlos Santana, both of whom Truman would
later have the privilege of working with.
“Tim is a giant in the field, both as
a creator, and as an artist,” said Dynamic Forces President
Nick Barrucci. “I’m extremely proud to add Scout
to our list of DF Definitive Editions, and looking forward
to re-presenting this powerful, landmark series – as
well as new Scout merchandise -- to a whole new group of fans!”
“I'm very proud of Scout,” Timothy
Truman said. “He was very influential on 1980s comics.
He's really the sum of many influences. Along with GrimJack,
Scout is probably the work that most defined my style.
“Let Neo-cons beware -- Scout is back!”
“We’re extremely pleased that
we can bring Scout back to a new audience,” ArrogantMGMS
head Mike Gold stated. “This is a vital project, and
among Tim Truman’s very best work in his career. We
are very pleased that we can join forces with Nick Barrucci
and Dynamic Forces to help make this happen.”
