Win Scout Comics’ Mindbender & Solar Flare Variants!!!

It's no secret that Scout Comics have put out more than a few good comics lately, but specifically Mindbender and Solar Flare seem to have captured the market's attention. A good reason to celebrate with a couple of variants.

Two variants for Mindbender #1 and one for Solar Flare #1, all of them limited to 250 copies. Sounds good, right? Wait till you've seen them:

The last two covers up there are now available for sale at Comics-Direct (via their ebay UK shop: Mindbender and Solar Flare) and the first one is sold by ComicXposure.

In a classy gesture, the good folks at Scout Comics have thrown a couple of Comics-Direct variant sets our way (so that would be the last 2 covers shown above) for two lucky winners. Even better, they are throwing an assortment of 5 hard to find Scout Comics limited editions (limited to 50 to 250 copies) on top of these new variants.

How we're going to do this? There are going to be two prizes: one with the best answer to a question and the other for a random comment. The best answer to the question will get the two variants plus the 5 variant prize. The random comment will “just” get the 2 variants.

The question: What's been your favorite Scout Comics series so far and why?

Comments will be closed at the end of the week, only one comment per account, …

Thanks for your attention and thanks to Scout Comics for another cool contest!!!

    I currently read 4 Scout comics, Solar Flare, Solarman, Little Guardian and Mindbenders. I really like them all. For Solarflare I have in unfair advantage as I own the first 6 comics prior to them finding a home at Scout. Solarman has captured my attention and I love the intrigue that is in the book.

    I have to say that Little Guardians is my favorite. It is a fun book that just keeps getting better. All are not whom they seem which keeps me wanting to come back for more. The artwork is great and the colorist really makes the book standout. The writing makes me laugh as I love the humorous conversations that go on throughout!!

    I would have said Henchgirl due to bringing fun back to story telling, a long lost commodity, but I have leaned to mindbenders, for the deep ingorossing context, that keeps hinting at more and more to come, looks like a long haul prospect for my pull list. My eldest son loves Solar flare, but like good old doctor phil would say, “it aint about you!”. – Random Comment… “My hair is made of pudding, see, lick it!!!”

    Once Our Land. Gorgeous art combined with tender story. Highly original.

    Scout books have been hard to come by at my LCS, at least the #1’s, so I am limited in my exposure.

    Elasticator, from what I have read so far. It has really great art, and I like that there’s a little humor sprinkled in. The fact it takes place in Brooklyn certainly makes it more relatable to me.

    My favorite title by Scout has been Henchgirl. I had to settle for the combo #1/2 combined for the first 2 issues. I paypal’d Kristen Gudsnuk $ and she sold me a few back issues from her site and then she did cool remarks on the covers for me and dropped them off at the CGC booth so I could have them witnessed. Henchgirl and the Vision maxi series were my 2 favorite reads in 2016.

    I was at Megacon 2 weeks ago and met Solar Flare writer, James Haick. James was wearing an Oakland A’s hat and I grew up outside of Oakland rooting for the awesome A’s teams of the late 80’s and early 90’s. We hit it off and he invited me and my girlfriend to the Rays vs. A’s game this Saturday at the Trop. I’ll be going with James Haick and James Pruett, the writer for Mindbender. It should be a great day at the Trop!!! It’s a double header starting at 1:10.

    Favorite Scout comic so far: Solar Flare. I am a huge fan of the “post-apocalypse” genre. I am very pleased that it isn’t post-nuclear war or zombie outbreak, all of which has already been done. The writing is solid and the art is great.

    My favorite so far is Henchgirl. It’s a fun comic with a lot of humor and imagination, but the main reason I enjoy it the most is because I’ve been lucky enough to meet Kristen Gudsnuk a couple of times (once at the Baltimore Comic Con and once at my LCS). I got to ask her about the comic and the behind the scenes processes. After talking to her those times, I definitely got a better appreciation for the work. I was even lucky enough to get a sketch from her on one of the Henchgirl NYCC blank covers. I can’t speak for all the other creators, but Scout picked up a great creator when they signed Kristen.

    My favorite Scout Comics comics is Once our Land. I was conquered by the pitch and liked the wonderful atmosphere of the story.

    I’ve liked all the Scout stuff I’ve read so far. Low print runs for the collector in me, great stories for the reader in me. It’s the best of both worlds!

    I have really been impressed with Hench girl. It is well written and nice to see an independent comic this well done. It is also great to see a female lead book Doing so well. My new favorite is solar flare. Just read the first issue and need to pick up #2. The low print runs havent been bad either.

    Haven’t read any Scout comics, but I’d love to start reading Mindbender. That Comics-Direct variant cover is DOPE

  • Avatar

    I’m partial to Solar Flare among other reasons because I actually bought my copy of #1 from James Haick at Planet Comicon in KC and after I told him my LCS didn’t get it in and I had been trying to get a copy for non flipper prices he hooked me up with a bunch of stuff. I *really* like Mindbender too though.

    I would have to say solar flare. As to the reason why its the only one i have read from scout. It was due to the contest giveways that i found solar flare in the first place when they had the name that villian contest ( still bummed about that). But glad i found a good read.

    I must say that unfortunately I haven’t read any scout comics yet. But that will be changing now.

    I really liked Once Our Land. The art was really good and it had a good story. I liked how it was in german.

  • Avatar

    My favorite would have to be Fish Eye. The story and artwork really are not like anything out there today. Fish Eye brings to the fold our obsession with “Reality TV”, and mixes in a “Truman Show” spin that really reels in the reader. Can’t wait to see how it ends.

    Im going to have to go with Henchgirl, enjoyed every issue, which is something alot of books fail to do for me nowadays.
