Scout Comics is set to release SWEET DOWNFALL this fall.
The story follows a ruthless crash test dummy turned hitman falls in love with a mermaid meant for his boss, the chase is on as he tries to save her life thanks to the mind of creator Artist/Writer Stefano Cardoselli (Heavy Metal Magazine, 2000 AD, Planet Caravan).
In a press release from Scout Comics, Cardoselli says that he is a fan of Martin Scorsese’s films and in particular of the movie, Goodfellas.
“I can’t say that it wasn’t the engine of inspiration when I started writing and drawing Sweetdownfall. It’s part of the cake batter of rusty cyberpunk and action movie that makes this series so special to me. I love that Scout Comics gives me the possibility to create freely!”
The story follows Jonny an old-model crash test dummy who’s been repurposed as a hitman for the Don Vito Coriaci of sprawling ocean-bound city-state Santa Clara City. Jonny loyally follows orders to the T, until his latest mission – when he’s tasked with bringing in a mermaid, a delicacy with healing properties. Johnny falls in love with the mermaid and decides to save her, the chase is on through crumbling skyscrapers and colossal cyber-angel statues – in a hailstorm of lead, breathtaking pursuits, and Mexican standoffs.
No release date has been announced.
