S.H.O.O.T. First #1 Debuts from Dark Horse

Shooting first and asking questions later rarely works out well for anyone. Well, anyone except for the shooter, but typically, even they're faced with more questions about why they shot in the first place. There are times when shooting first is a good call, such as when Dark Horse publishers a comic of the same name called S.H.O.O.T. First #1, written by Justin Aclin and illustrated by Nicolas Daniel Selma.

"S.H.O.O.T. First is the most personal story and the most epic story I've ever written. It's about how we deal with the loss of faith, plus it's got crazy sci-fi action and a robot arm-wrestling a demon,” says Aclin.

Not to be confused with S.H.I.E.L.D., the Secular Humanist Occult Obliteration Taskforce uses the power of their own disbelief (as filtered through sci-fi weaponry) to protect humanity from supernatural creatures that seek to do us harm…but for S.H.O.O.T., that means demons, angels and everything in between. Original, irreverent and sure-to-be controversial - S.H.O.O.T. First promises sci-fi action in the Dark Horse tradition, with a bold new twist!

“If you are into angels and demons, weird looking creatures or just big guns, S.H.O.O.T First will totally blow your heads off," adds Selma.

“I'm so excited by the tremendous work that Nicolas Selma is doing on these issues, and I couldn't be more proud to be publishing my first creator-owned miniseries through Dark Horse Comics, which has been where comics' finest creators bring their greatest creations for decades," adds Aclin.

S.H.O.O.T. First #1 (of 4) is in comic shops everywhere October 16th. Full press release below.
