Black Stars Above from Lonnie Nadler, Jenna Cha, Brad Simpson, Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and Vault Comics this November
Vault is thrilled to announce Black Stars Above, a terrifying new comic book series that is part of Vault’s annual autumnal horror imprint, Nightfall.
A horror story that’s part The Revenant and part At the Mountains of Madness, Black Stars Above is a chilling historical cosmic horror tale of survival from the deranged minds of writer Lonnie Nadler and debut artist Jenna Cha, with colorist Brad Simpson, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.
The year is 1887 and a storm brews. A young fur trapper flees her overbearing family only to get lost in a dreamlike winter wilderness that harbours a cosmic threat. The fur trade is dead and the nation is changing. Yet, Eulalie Dubois has spent her entire life tending to her family’s trapline, isolated from the world. A chance at freedom comes in the form of a parcel that needs delivering to a nameless town north of the wilderness. Little does Eulalie know, something sinister hides in those woods and it yearns for what she has.
Black Stars Above #1 will receive a Vault Vintage B Cover by Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel that pays tribute to Frank Miller’s iconic cover to Whiteout, by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber (Oni Press, 1999). The Vault Vintage cover line celebrates the artistic achievements of both modern and legendary comics artists.
Black Stars Above #1 hits store shelves on November 6th, 2019.
