“I remember buying THE MAZE AGENCY #1 in 1988 when I was 16,” Scout Comics CEO Brendan Deneen said of The Maze Agency coming to the publisher. “I instantly fell in love with the characters, the mysteries, and the entire world that Mike had created. I also read many, many other comics by Mike, and I particularly loved CAMELOT 3000. Working with him, especially on TMA, is a dream come true.”
