This September, writer Sebastian Girner (Shirtless Bear-Fighter) and artist Galaad are teaming up with letterer/designer Jeff Powell to produce Scales & Scoundrels.

This colorful fantasy tale follows treasure hunter Luvander who is tired of being a penniless adventurer. In a land brimming with magic and mystery, she sets off in search of a fabled dungeon, “the Dragon’s Maw.” This ancient labyrinth is said to hold endless wealth, but underneath the gold and glory is certain doom. What began as a simple adventure quickly becomes an epic journey, for Luvander holds a secret that will bring light to a world encroached by an ancient darkness.

Scales & Scoundrels is a dream project for Galaad, Jeff, and myself. We are crafting a deep and wondrous world for readers to get lost in, creating heroes, villains, and rogues to love and loathe, and spinning tales that will delight and entertain, shock and inspire. A fantasy adventure comic for readers of all ages to escape into, and bring a piece of magic back with them into their lives,” shared Girner.

S&S is everything we want to bring to a comic series: the joyous fun, the gripping action, the thrill of adventure, the sense of wonder, the dramatic moments, the high stakes, the epic turning points, and the inspiring destinies. We don’t want the readers to just enjoy this story, we want them to embark with us and share in the adventure of a lifetime. That’s what I love about comics. Just a drip of ink on paper – endless stories and memories,” added Galaad.

“It’s great to have the opportunity to work on a book that can be enjoyed by a wide audience. Both the art and story kick ass, and I think people will enjoy seeing how it unfolds,” Powell said.

Scales & Scoundrels #1 arrives in comic book stores, September 6, 2017. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is August 14.
