Indie Cover Spotlight: Scout #9

I’ve featured Scout on ICS before (here, here, and here) but in honor of the news that the series has been optioned for a movie, I’m going to devote this week’s feature to it again. I love this book, and I’m cautiously optimistic that we may one day see a film version of it.


This wraparound cover to issue #9 was penciled and inked by creator Tim Truman, and features the character Beauregard La Duke on the back, modeled after fellow comic book writer Beau Smith. Published by Eclipse Comics, July 1986.

    Historical note: in 1998, Fox tried to develop a Buckaroo Banzai TV series, titled Buckaroo Banzai: Ancient Secrets and New Mysteries. It never made it out of development hell, but here’s a computer animated test reel created for the series.

      Indie Cover Spotlight: Buckaroo Banzai: Return of the Screw #1

      So The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension! was on TV the other night, and since I hadn’t seen the movie in a long time, I decided to give it a look. It’s a hot mess of a film, but I suppose that’s what lends it its charm and cult status. Anyway, it put me in the mood to start up the ICS feature on my blog again, after a long hiatus. So here we go:


      Buckaroo Banzai: Return of the Screw #1 was published in 2006 by Moonstone. I believe the cover is by Matt Haley. Earl Mac Rauch, the screenwriter of the movie, returned for scripting duty on the comics as well.
