QUOTE FROM WRITER SHAWN FRENCH:
“Scout and their Black Caravan imprint are the perfect partners for introducing our Epic Tavern story world and characters to a whole new audience. It’s rare for a writer to get to adapt their own work into another medium. Usually, you’re handing it off and making a million compromises in the process. Instead, we get to pick through hundreds of Epic Tavern quests and characters, and combine our very favorites into a new comic adventure.”
