With the start of New York Comic Con and the opportunity to finally reunite with like-minded fans, let go Scout comics to find a way to promote a book in a cool and unusual way. But don’t let me try to explain it, when this press release explains it to you.
Enter Brenda Zelinski, a depressed 18-year-old girl who has been kicked out of the college of her dreams and is stuck in her hometown with no plans or hopes. All Brenda wants is a quick payday so she can afford to fly to Scotland and jump off a cliff to end her miserable life.
Together, these two lost souls form an unlikely friendship around their mutual contempt for literally everyone.
Bloodstained ‘babysitter wanted’ ads will be displayed around the Javits Center and near iconic local comic shops St. Mark’s in Brooklyn and Forbidden Planet near Union Square. Treasure hunters can find these posters, pull the tab and call the number. If they listen to the post and then bring the tab to the SCOUT comic book booth in NYCC (booth # 2637) OR St. Marks Comics / Forbidden Planet, they can receive a limited edition tin can featuring the first appearance for FREE. characters. Interested applicants can follow @shebitescomic on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for additional clues on where to find the flyers. A limited number of secret “Cans of Ashes” will also be on sale during the show at Scout Comics booth # 2637 for fans who aren’t quite ready to hunt down the flyer.
Heather Hale will be signing at Scout Comics Booth # 2637 at New York Comic-Con on Thursday October 7 at 2 p.m., Saturday October 9 at 5 p.m. and Sunday October 10 at 4 p.m. She will also appear at St. Mark’s Comics @ 51 35th St in Brooklyn at 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 9 with other Scout Creators including James Haick (The Mall, Solar Flare), David Byrne (Stake) and Don Handfield (Unikorn, The Shopping center, La Source).
