The Invasion Begins This August: Previewing Scout Comics’ ‘Lifeformed’ #1
by Brendan M. Allen
Scout Comics has announced Lifeformed, a new story from Matt Mair Lowery and Cassie Anderson. The first chapter is set to drop in August 2021, followed by the rest of the story collected in trade soon after.
‘Orphaned in the wake of an alien invasion, 11-year-old Cleo must leave behind the life she knew to fight for her own survival and the Earth’s future. With the help of a rebel alien posing as her dad, Cleo learns how to survive and strike back against the invaders. Battling their way through the wreckage of the apocalypse, these two unlikely companions bond, pondering what it means to be human, and search for reasons to carry on.’
“I can’t wait for folks to discover Cleo and company and dig into Lifeformed,” Says Lowery. “I love these characters, and it’s exciting to think of people discovering them for the first time. And, personally, I’m looking forward to seeing that first issue on the shelves at stores next to all the other comics that week… having a comic that’s a part of the regular old New Comic Book Day grind feels magical, and the 10-year-old, 1984-version of me would never have imagined it possible.”
