Many of comics' youngest mutants have avoided adversity by joining a community and finding a place to call home. Xavier's gifted youngsters joined an elite battle squad on a school campus and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trained in the sewers. Ross Campbell's upcoming "Shadoweyes," from SLG Publishing, won't be quite so lucky, however, having to face life on the streets as a mutated teen all by herself.

Here's how SLG summarizes the upcoming black and white OGN:

In the futuristic dystopia of Dranac, moody teenager Scout Montana is an aspiring vigilante, but her first attempt to beat up a mugger fails when she's hit in the head with a brick and knocked unconscious. When she awakens, she discovers that she's able to transform into a strange, blue, clawed, superhuman creature. In this new body she becomes the vigilante Shadoweyes, and soon finds she's unable to return to her human form. Helping people wherever she can becomes the only activity available to her, and she struggles with figuring out how to deal with aggressors and their victims.

The video trailer takes viewers through a brief origin story of sorts, which culminates in Scout confronting her unexpected new form in a bathroom mirror. Fans can augment their trailer experience with a fleshed out sampling of pages at Robot6 as they wait for the book's debut in June. See the trailer after the jump.
