“If you have ever found yourself wondering, ‘Why is there no comic book about a vigilante hero who smashes people’s faces in with a bowling ball?’ you are in LUCK, bruv!”
A new hero who uses a bowling ball to fight Nazis will make his debut in November at Image Comics.
Actor and comedian Andy Samburg, who you know from Saturday Night Live and those Corona ads with Snoop Dogg, will team with X-Force/Scumbag writer Rick Remender, Fallout Boy guitarist Joe Trohman and Scumbag artist Roland Boschi on The Holy Roller.

The new Image title about a ‘profane’ super-spy ‘with a fifth-grade education’ starts in October.
Rick Remender‘s next project is all about a Scumbag — Ernie Ray Clementine, a “profane, illiterate, drug addicted, biker, with a fifth-grade education.” He’s also a super-spy.
Scumbag kicks off in October from Image Comics, and the first issue will feature artwork by Lewis LaRosa and Moreno Dinisio. After that, the art team will change every issue.
“It is very hard to get an artist to commit to one book for a long run,” Remender told ComicBook.com. “It’s a lot of investment, harder still is getting a really great artist to sign on for a long run. So, I had the idea to lure in a bunch of my favorite artists to each do a single issue. The great experiment is underway and going really well. This new ongoing series will feature a murderers’ row of all-star artistic talent rotating each issue.”
