Florida Publisher Scout Comics Suspends Operations Due to Hurricane Ian

Hurricane Ian has hit many people and industries including the comic book world. Florida based comic publisher Scout Comics tweeted out this message:



“As many of you may know, Scout HQ is located in Ft. Myers, Florida, and was directly in the path of Hurricane Ian as it made landfall. We wanted to update our fans, creators, and team members now that the storm has passed. First, our team members in the Ft. Myers area and throughout the rest of the state are well. Scout HQ is undamaged. The larger coastal area around Ft. Myers, Charlotte County, has suffered serious devastation with lives lost and damage to property and infrastructure.  As the community deals with the repercussions of the hurricane, Scout will be temporarily suspending most administrative operations. Work on our current and future publications will continue moving forward through the hard work of our creators, editors and designers. But delays are expected. Millions are without power and the postal service is unable to operate in certain areas. Any pending shipments from our website will be delayed, but as soon as service resumes our HQ staff will fulfill all orders.  Scoutcomics.com is still accepting new orders and all merchandise will be shipped out as soon as we are fully operational. Our hearts go out to all the people affected by this storm. Comic Impressions, our local printer, and part of the extended Scout family, has suffered serious damage to their facility. Thankfully everyone in the Comic Impressions team and their families are well. We will post more updates soon.”
