Wrangling fierce supernatural beasts is a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it. The adventures of Scottie and Howie—the animal control specialists who got in a little over their heads in Stephan Nilson and Charles Pritchett’s 2011 graphic novel The Pound—are set to continue this September from IDW Publishing.
Teaming with artist Ibrahim Moustafa, Nilson and Pritchett are bringing The Pound back for four issues of things that go bump in the night, featuring the brave (and exhausted) guys who chase them through Cleveland’s darkest corners. When Animal Control specialists Scottie and Howie were laid off by the City of Cleveland and went into business for themselves, they never could have guessed they’d be tangling with werewolves.
“It’s great to be back with IDW to publish The Pound. We’re all excited for this next series. While Horror Business was our origin story, Ghouls Night Out gives us the opportunity to really dive into the Scottie and Howie’s world as they adjust their lives to living and dealing with monsters, and I think the readers are really going to enjoy Ibrahim’s illustration style,” said Nilson. “He’s done a great job capturing the action and humor of the story.”
Our intrepid heroes made it through their initial ordeal, and in Nilson and Pritchett’s new series, Scottie and Howie’s business is booming, but the boys are facing government scrutiny, a seemingly endless slew of new creatures to tangle with, and worse yet—visiting in-laws. With that kind of a schedule, The Pound: Ghouls Night Out promises to be another blast of the trademark thrills and humor that made the first series a fan favorite. Issue #1 even features the hit Image Comics series Proof’s Agent John “Proof” Prufrock in a guest starring role.
