I was introduced to SCAM by Diane from my LCS, Royal Collectibles, and as usual she was right. If your local shop hasn’t turned you on to this book you may have seen the ComixTribe tribe at any number of comic book conventions and picked up a copy. If you haven’t let me the first to tell you SCAM is a very cool series, it’s a rich tapestry of crime and violence, one you really should be reading.
Joe, and publisher ComixTribe, are putting together an anthology set in the SCAM universe. Now to generate even more buzz they’ve decided to release one of the shorts early… and for free!
Read on for details…
ComixTribe Press Release:
January 3, 2014 — Newburyport, MA — ComixTribe has released “THREE CAR MONTE” a brand new short written by Ryan K Lindsay (Fatherhood, Ghost Town) and drawn by Adam Masterman (Echo Callaway), and set in Joe Mulvey’s SCAM universe, on the new SCAM Facebook page. This free ten-page short is one of 15 brand-new stories by a who’s who of established and up-and-coming talent that make up the SCAMthology, which will be featured in the SCAM Ultimate Collection.
“The SCAM Ultimate Collection is the biggest job ComixTribe has pulled yet,” said Joe Mulvey. “It took me years to collect the necessary dirt to use as leverage on all the talented creators I conned into working with me on this project.”
The SCAM Ultimate Collection will be an 256-page over-sized hardcover that includes SCAM, Mulvey’s recently completed super-powered conman mini-series, as well as the SCAMthology, which features more than 100-pages of unpublished stores by creators including Joe Eisma (Morning Glories), Nick Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects), CP “Talent” Wilson III (The Stuff of Legend, Wraith), Paul Allor (GI Joe, Strange Nation), and many more.
Mulvey will launch a Kickstarter Campaign for The SCAM Ultimate Collection later this month.
Three of Chiyoko Hashimoto’s briefcases are stolen by the crew and she’ll do anything to get them back, including running three high speed, high flying chases through the streets of Las Vegas. But are the contents of the cases what the con men are really after?
“Three Car Monte” written by Ryan K Lindsay (Fatherhood, Ghost Town), art by Adam Masterman (Echo Callaway), color by Vasco Sobral.
