Scout Comics Once Our Land Optioned and In Development as an Animated Feature Film

Drawn & Paneled is a big fan of Scout Comics, so when President James Haick called us up to give us the good news about an OG Scout book we were happy to share the news with our GenXGrownUp fans. Once Our Land is a post-apocalyptic tale set in 1830s Germany where monsters have run amok and wiped out most of humanity. Focusing on two characters, Fritz: a 62 year old warrior who carries a big spear and a bigger heart. Unlike most warriors, Fritz likes being in the company of others, sadly enough, there aren’t many people left. Ingrid: an 11 year old survivor who never gives up no matter the outcome. Ingrid likes to keep to herself although everything changed once she met Fritz. She also has a big appetite, too bad portions are scarce. The cover alone brings up so many emotions that you can’t wait to read this epic tale and this is one case where judging a book by it’s cover is a good thing.
Peter Ricq is an extraordinary writer, and Scout is exactly the write publisher to help him tell his story to the masses. You can bet that Drawn & Paneled will be 1st in line to grab tickets when this animated feature film hits theaters.

November 15th, 2018 — Scout Comics & Entertainment is excited to announce that Peter Ricq’s ONCE OUR LAND has been optioned by Amber Ripley of Goodbye Productions (ENTANGLEMENT) to develop as an animated feature film.  Ricq will adapt with Phil Ivanusic-Vallee.

Brendan Deneen, CEO of Scout Comics, said, “ONCE OUR LAND was one of the very first books that we published and in just two issues, Peter was able to create an entire world and mythos.  It’s an impressive piece of sophisticated yet whimsical storytelling.  I can’t wait to see it translated for the big screen.”
Peter Ricq, writer and artist of OOL, said, “I’ve worked with Amber before on our feature ‘Dead Shack’ and since then, I’ve been looking forward to working with her again. ONCE OUR LAND is a story I’ve developed and thought about for a decade and so the film is very fleshed out in my head. The script expands on the worlds and characters and I even got the chance to show the alien world, which I had wanted to add to the original book. It’s all very very exciting.”
The second volume of ONCE OUR LAND is slated to hit comic book stores in 2019 from Scout Comics.
