SCOUT ANNOUNCES NEW SERIES CANOPUS
Created by writer/artist Dave Chisholm (Instrumental)
Marooned on a lifeless alien planet 300 light years from Earth, an amnesiac astronaut and her robot companion explore a strange world in search of the materials they need to return home.
Helen wakes up marooned on a lifeless alien planet 300 light years from Earth with no memories beyond a hazy sense of extinction-level urgency to return to Earth. Joined by her robot companion, she explores the planet to find materials necessary to repair her ship. However, circumstances are not as straightforward as they seem: along their perilous path, Helen’s most painful memories return to her as monstrous manifestations hellbent on her destruction. In this mind-bending sci-fi adventure, Helen’s story unfolds into both her past and her future.
From Creator Dave Chisholm:
“I can’t wait to share CANOPUS with the world. It comes from a very personal space–from some demons I carry around with me. CANOPUS is ultimately an exploration of resentment, memory, identity, and the idea of forgiveness–of letting go. But it’s also a sci-fi story with cool monsters and fun characters! That’s the great thing about sci-fi–you can tell a personal, meaningful, poignant story through these big, imaginative, exciting ideas.”
From Scout Comics President James Haick:
“We’re really looking forward to publishing CANOPUS. It’s such a cool and interesting sci-fi concept that will keep readers engaged until the very last page. We’re proud to welcome Dave and CANOPUS to the exciting line of upcoming Scout titles.”
