Penny Arcade and Cryptozoic Entertainment announced the launch of an all-new comic book series, The Lookouts, based on the fan-favorite Penny Arcade web comic. Previewing with issues #1 July 11 – 15 at San Diego Comic-Con and in stores nationwide on August 29th, The Lookouts story was developed by Penny Arcade’s Jerry Holkins, Cryptozoic’s President and Chief Creative Officer, Cory Jones, and Ben McCool. The Lookouts is written by McCool with art by Robb Mommaerts.
This ongoing series tells the story of a group of young boys who join the Lookouts, where they must learn the secrets of the magical Eyrewood Forest. Badges are rewarded to the Lookouts upon completing different tasks. Each six-issue arc will focus on a new badge and an exciting journey for the young trainees, starting with the “Riddle” badge in the first issue. Additionally, each issue will contain a two-page spread from The Lookout’s Handbook, featuring an inside peek at this heroic group and information on additional badges.
The Lookouts #1 will be previewed at San Diego Comic-Con with two exclusive covers, one by Mike Krahulik and one by Doug TenNapel. The Lookouts #1 will launch in comic stores nationwide on August 29, 2012 with one cover by Rob Mommaerts. The comic will also be available digitally starting July 6th on comiXology mobile apps for Apple iOS, Android, and more.
