Scout Comics First Look: Volume #1

In Volume, Peace is quiet. Noise is rebellion.

Scout Comics has announced a new four-part series titled Volume. Written by Christof Bogacs with art by Skylar Patridge, the series is an action series that, “blends Riot Grrl attitude with dystopian sci-fi, all sent hurtling straight toward you in a furious blur of music and color.”

In the messed-up world of tomorrow a populist dictatorship – known simply as THE REGIME – have made music illegal, preaching a perverted version of law and order called ‘PEACE IS QUIET’. Standing up to this onerous silence is ESSA, a teenager sick of living in the bland and colorless world the Regime has created. She’s 16, fed-up, and her only weapon is one killer rock song. See, when ESSA listens to her favorite track – a bellowing punk anthem called GARBAGE HEART – she doesn’t just feel invincible, SHE IS INVINCIBLE, imbued with superhuman strength and durability from listening to the song. What follows is a chaotic mess of color, punk music, and robot punching…needless to say, it’s going to get noisy.

Quotes:

Writer and co-creator Christof Bogacs says, “VOLUME has been rattling around in my head for a while now. This is me venting all my pent-up teenage rage in an immature display of punching, explosions and song lyrics. The best part is I get to pull Skye and Nadia into the fray with me … and now Scout as well! As a fan of books like Long Lost and Heavenly Blues, I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Scout to bring this punk-drenched power-fantasy to life.”

Artist and co-creator Skylar Patridge added, “Volume is a really special story, not only in its message but also in its execution. We wanted to create a world devoid of color, stifled by the confines of conformity — then smash it with color and punk music. It’s a story of youth, identity and reluctant rebellion in the face of authoritarianism.”

Editor and co-creator Nadia Shammas concluded, “VOLUME is a story that encapsulates the way teen girls are silenced and undervalued, and the way their voices are louder than ever.”
