There has been a lot of excitement recently seeing some of Rick Remender’s stories being adapted on screen. So, how about something brand new you’ll be able to get at your local comic book shops? Enter, The Scumbag from Image Comics.
The Scumbag “is the story of Ernie Ray Clementine, a profane, illiterate, drug addicted, biker, with a fifth-grade education and the only thing standing between us and total Armageddon because this dummy accidentally received a power-imbuing serum making him the world’s most powerful super spy.
Ernie is a relic of a bygone era, the living embodiment of sex, drugs, and rock and roll—so, this doesn’t make things easy for the spy organization that needs his help as they bribe, cajole, and manipulate Ernie to choose between his own self-interests and doing what’s right.”
That is the extensive synopsis released by Image. Joining Remender on the book is Lewis LaRosa who will help bring Issue 1 to life. You can also expect to see chapters and covers by Andrew Robinson, Eric Powell, Tula Lotay, Wes Craig, Roland Boschi, Simone Di Meo, Duncan Fegredo, Yanick Paquette, Mike McKone, Dave Johnson, and Moreno Dinisio. That is one amazing list of talent. The Scumbag will join Remender’s other works as part of his Giant Generator Studios.
Issue 1 of The Scumbag will be available October 21st at your local comic book shops and digital retailers. Check us out on social media for preview pages and keep checking back for our review.
