Scout Comics Announces Nostalgic Sci-Fi Epic ‘The Lunar Ladies’ For July
by Brendan M. Allen
Scout Comics has announced Lunar Ladies, a throw-back sci-fi epic written by Omar Morales, with art by Joel Cotejar, color by Paula Goulart, and letters by Jaymes Reed, set to drop in July.
‘Set a million years ago, in outer space. A highly-advanced society of women lives under the surface of the moon. Their peaceful way of living is quietly fracturing from the inside, as political ideologies pit the queen of the moon against a geneticist hell bent on usurping the queen’s power.
The Lunar Ladies is an homage to the public domain character, Moon Girl, complete with Golden Age ray guns and laser rays. Pew-pew!’
“THE LUNAR LADIES is a love letter to the golden age, public domain character, Moon Girl, who is the central figure of this ray-guns-and-laser-rays Sci-Fi story,” says Morales. “Back when I cross promoted this book with Charlie Stickney’s White Ash on Kickstarter, I never imagined we’d hook up again as creator and publisher at Scout Comics. I couldn’t be more thrilled that this title found a home with a publisher that loves indie comics as much as I do!”
