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.
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:
- Volume 1 (collects Scout #1–7, 136 pages, November 2006, ISBN 1-933305-95-9)
- Volume 2 (collects Scout #8–16, 140 pages, August 2008, ISBN 1-933305-60-6)
