Comic Series Trim Season Set on Remote Cannabis Farm

Scout Comics is a rising publisher that announced a new horror/thriller series on October 26th. Trim Season—following a group of young adults from Los Angeles, California who migrate to a remote cannabis farm where they encounter the supernatural.

Trim Season is based on an original concept from Megan Sutherland, Sean E. DeMott and Cullen Poythress, loosely inspired by true events such as the story of the  “The Humboldt Five”—five women who went missing in Humboldt County, California during harvest season; however, it’s unclear whether their cases were connected. 

Scout Comics just debuted several more titles at New York Comic Con. EternusA new series of comics by Venom 2Director Andy Serkis, Andrew Levitas 

In an interview, DeMott discussed what to expect in the comic’s new version in a conversation with Hollywood Reporter 

“I immediately thought of old rustic imagery and instantly thought, ‘What if there was a witch in the woods up there running a tweaker cult or cartel type thing?’” DeMott told The Hollywood Reporter

As with any migrant job, “trimmigrants” should be cognizant of potential dangers of working in remote areas. Humboldt County has a steady stream of migrant marijuana trimmers during harvest seasons. This is why some communities have declared them nuisances. Unprepared migrants can be exposed to dangerous situations.

But,Trimming Season, the trimmers’ enemies appear to be more supernatural in nature. Although the details of this story are not available, it involves an evil family and human sacrifice.

A screenplay was initially written by David Blair, Ariel Vida, and then the comic book from Jake Hearns. Cover art of the comic book. Trim SeasonRob Prior created this illustration, using pencils and inks from Mara Mendez Garcia. Colors were provided by Lorenzo Palombo.

“Execution Posse was trying to combine the two previous genres we had used together into something new. We had done an ’80s drug dealing book recently based on a true crime story, and we had done a supernatural book, but we hadn’t approached mixing true crime and supernatural together,” added DeMott. “We wanted people to see an evolution in our storytelling and this book shows that we can keep coming up with new ideas and finding spaces for them.”
