Comic publisher Scout Comics & Entertainment and game publisher The Op have entered a “first look” agreement that will cover all Scout Comics properties.

Under the agreement between the two companies, The Op will have the first opportunity to produce and develop board games based on all Scout Comics titles, such as Stabbity Bunny, White Ash, Eternus, and Unikorn.

In a press release, Scout’s Chief Creative Officer Don Handfield stated that “Gaming and comics have always had a special relationship, and we look forward to expanding Scout’s IP into new territory with our incredible new partners at The Op.”

The companies have not announced any specific projects that will be produced under the new partnership as of this writing.

Earlier this year, ICv2 had a chance to talk with Scout’s EVP Richard Rivera about the company’s plans for its young-readers imprint (see “ICv2 Interview:  Richard Rivera, Publisher of Scoot!  Comics”).

Next month, The Op will launch a Harry Potter dice game (see “The Op Will Release ‘Harry Potter:  Mischief in Diagon Alley’”).
