Twenty-four issues of the first series were published.
After the series ended, a short comic featuring Santana's marriage ceremony was published inside Timothy Truman's first album release entitled Marauder by his band The Dixie Pistols.
Two mini-series were published that 'bridged the gap' between the two Scout series: New America and Swords of Texas, each 4 issues long. While Truman oversaw them, others wrote and drew them. A one-shot 'Scout Handbook' was also published.
A new series entitled Scout: War Shaman continued Santana's adventures after having two children and being widowed. The series ended with issue #16, after Scout is killed. Further series were planned, Scout: Marauder and Scout: Blue Leader, but never appeared. Scout: Marauder, described as "the first volume in a new graphic novel series," was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2018.
A history of ecological excesses had led other nations to levy vast sanctions against the US for "stealing" world resources.
Author Michael A. Sheyahshe noted in Native Americans in Comic Books – A Critical Study, that "Scout is presented in a respectful and genuine manner with tribally specific cultural ties."
Eclipse printed two trade paperback collections of the comic: Scout: Four Monsters (#1–7), and Scout: Mount Fire (#8–14).
As well, Dynamite Entertainment published a series of reprints:
In October 2016, Christopher MacBride is set to adapt and direct for the big screen for Studio 8. Jon Silk and Hell or High Water’s Braden Aftergood will produce the film and Truman will serve as a consultant.
