Scout Comics Announces New Series VOLUME For 2021 Debut!
“ Peace is quiet. Noise is rebellion ”
VOLUME is a four issue tale of teenage rebellion and
superpowered punks. It’s a fun action romp that blends Riot Grrl
attitude with dystopian sc-fi, all sent hurtling straight toward
you in a furious blur of music and color.

In the messed-up world of tomorrow a populist dictatorship –
known simply as THE REGIME – have made music illegal, preaching a
perverted version of law and order called ‘PEACE IS QUIET’.
Standing up to this onerous silence is ESSA, a teenager sick of
living in the bland and colorless world the Regime has created.
She’s 16, fed-up, and her only weapon is one killer rock song.
See, when ESSA listens to her favorite track – a bellowing punk
anthem called GARBAGE HEART – she doesn’t just feel invincible,
SHE IS INVINCIBLE , imbued with superhuman strength and durability
from listening to the song. What follows is a chaotic mess of color, punk music, and robot punching…needless to say, it’s going to get noisy.
Writer and co-creator Christof Bogacs says, “VOLUME has been rattling around in my head for a while now. This is me venting all my pent-up teenage rage in an immature display of punching, explosions and song lyrics. The best part is I get to pull Skye and Nadia into the fray with me … and now Scout as well! As a fan of books like Long Lost and Heavenly Blues, I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Scout to bring this punk-drenched power-fantasy to life.”
Artist and co-creator Skylar Patridge added, “Volume is a really special story, not only in its message but also in its execution. We wanted to create a world devoid of color, stifled by the confines of conformity — then smash it with color and punk music. It’s a story of youth, identity and reluctant rebellion in the face of authoritarianism.”
Editor and co-creator Nadia Shammas concluded, “VOLUME is a story that encapsulates the way teen girls are silenced and undervalued, and the way their voices are louder than ever.”https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/scout-comics-announces-new-series-volume-for-2021-debut/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/ScoutComics-600x261.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/ScoutComics-150x65.pngNews
