Justin Aclin On ‘S.H.O.O.T. First’ And Battling The Supernatural With Weaponized Atheism [Interview]

S.H.O.O.T. First #1, Dark Horse Comics

Around Halloween, it's always fun to read stories about ghosts and spirits, and personally, my favorite kind of spooky story usually revolves around a team of hard-boiled toughs slugs it out with monsters in a more action-oriented tale. Justin Aclin and Nicolás Selma's S.H.O.O.T. First, currently out from Dark Horse, fits that mold, but there's a twist: Rather than fighting the monsters on their own supernatural terms, the Secular Humanist Occult Obliteration Taskforce battles exactly the monsters they don't believe in, gunning them down with guns powered by anger and atheism.

It's an interesting twist on a classic concept, so to find out more, I talked to Aclin about his motivations for writing the series, the reaction he's expecting from religious readers, and how personal the stories of atheism guns are for him.

Now, writer Justin Aclin and artist Nicolas Selma are bringing back their story of a team that operates from a more Scoobydoovian foundation: S.H.O.O.T First, the story of a task force that battles myths and monsters with the power of atheism.
