Scout Comics Releases ‘Assassin And Son’ Tribute Variant Covers

by James Ferguson

About a year ago, Scout Comics acquired the writers to Assassin and Son, the debut comic from former WWE stars Marc Copani and Shad Gaspard. In May of this year, Gaspard tragically died while saving his son from drowning. As a tribute to the creator, Scout is releasing two special variant covers of the first issue with all profits going to the Gaspard family.

Each is limited to only 1,000 copies and can be purchased online at the Scout Comics store for $20 each. There is also a digital copy available for $5. The series is set to debut in comic stores worldwide in November 2020.

Set in the dark and gritty streets of New York’s five boroughs, Assassin & Son: Path of Vengeance tells the tale of Donovan Braddock, a one-man killing machine who worked with a team of assassins known as The Horsemen. When Braddock tries to leave his old life behind, his wife is murdered in front of him and his young son. With nothing to live for, but everything to fight for, Braddock and his son seek revenge on the men who took everything, sending them both on an epic journey of revenge and consequence that becomes the Path of Vengeance.
