James Pruett & Federico De Luca’s MINDBENDER #1 from Scout Comics Sells Out Release Day, Headed Back For Second Printing To Meet Demand

Mindbender #1 – Standard Cover


Writer: James Pruett
Artist: Federico De Luca

Alex was only 7 when he first awakened the power that left him comatose for nearly 16 years, an evolutionary power lying dormant in all mankind, bubbling within the unconscious mind waiting and yearning to be unleashed.

Finally, a young child was able to touch this untapped force and the results were catastrophic.

Those that would use his ability have been awaiting Alex’s awakening. Now, that wait has ended, and the world will soon learn the true potential of mankind. But will Alex be a vanguard for the world or will he be responsible for its annihilation?


“We were blown away by the enormous response we received for Mindbender #1. I was at a store signing on the release day and the store employees were telling me that they had already heard that it was sold out at the distributor level and that there were already rumors of having to go to a 3rd printing, which was a little premature, since I had yet to set the print run for the 2nd printing. But it is exciting to hear about the demand,” said Scout Publisher and Mindbender writer James Pruett.

Perfect for fans of Inception, Unbreakable, Legion and the OA, Mindbender is a thought-provoking journey through the realms of reality and madness exploring the potential power lying dormant in the human mind and the barriers that separate our world from the worlds between worlds both mentally and dimensionally.

“The previous weekend before the release of Mindbender #1 we were experiencing enormous demand through our Scout website and thought we might have a good chance to eventually sell through the print run, but never imagined selling out on the first day of release. It’s a great honor and I’m very appreciative of everyone that helped this happened.”

Mindbender is published monthly by Scout Comics. Please use Diamond code MAR178791 to order Mindbender #1 – 2nd printing coming to stores by the end of June 2017.
