Penny Arcade and Cryptozoic Entertainment™ are proud to announce the launch of an all-new comic book series, The Lookouts, based on the fan-favorite Penny Arcade web comic. ComiXology’s second best selling comic when it debuted, The Lookouts story was developed by Penny Arcade’s Jerry Holkins, Cryptozoic’s President and Chief Creative Officer Cory Jones, and Ben McCool. The Lookouts is written by McCool with art by Robb Mommaerts.
This ongoing series tells the story of a group of young boys who join the Lookouts, where they must learn the secrets of the magical Eyrewood Forest. Badges are rewarded to the Lookouts upon completing different tasks. Each six-issue arc will focus on a new badge and an exciting journey for the young trainees, starting with the “Riddle” badge in the first issue. Additionally, each issue will contain a two-page spread from The Lookout’s Handbook, featuring an inside peek at this heroic group and information on additional badges.
The Lookouts is now available in comic stores nationwide with one cover by Mommaerts. The comic is also available digitally on comiXology mobile apps for Apple iOS, Android, and more.

The Lookouts #1 Reviews
"Simply put, Eyrewood Forest pops off the page in this issue. Robb Mommaerts has illustrated a world that is both terrifying on one hand but warm and friendly on the other." - Zach Woolf, Major Spoilers
"The writing is tight, incident heavy, and gives the characters room to breathe whilst the art is a nicely handled mixture of threatening and welcoming. This is smart, character heavy that’s all-ages suitable and if you like fantasy comics, you need to be reading it." - Alasdair Stuart, Bleeding Cool
