Acclaimed game designer Cliff Bleszinski (Gears of War, Fortnite) will make his comics writing debut with critically acclaimed co-writer Alex De Campi (Dracula, Motherf**Ker!, Parasocial) and up-and-coming artist Sandy Jarrell (Bombshells, Lynx) in the forthcoming Scrapper. This six-issue sci-fi miniseries is set to launch this July from Image Comics.
“As a lifelong fan of comics, it’s an honor to actually create one with Alex,” said Bleszinski. “Scrapper comes from the heart; first, the loss of my Aussie Teddy and then finding puppy love again with our Pomsky Lady. I truly hope everyone enjoys this deeply personal work.”
Sci-fi-style action mixes with big emotions as stray dog Scrapper and his buddy Tank fight for justice against the totalitarian forces of a post-apocalyptic domed city. But when the fight comes to his home, Scrapper will face losing what’s most important to him—and gain a terrifying truth in the process.
“It’s been a joy to get back to full-bore, edge-of-your-seat action writing in a monthly comic, even more so when I get to base it around such a wonderful cast of urban animals as we’ve created in Scrapper,” said De Campi. “If you have pets you love, or you’ve ever just wanted to pet the dog in a video game, this is the book for you.”
Brian K. Vaughan and Niko Henrichon’s Pride of Baghdad meets Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner in this action-packed Young Adult series filled with heart.
