Vault Announces The Devil’s Red Bride from Sebastian Girner, John Bivens, Iris Monahan, and Jeff Powell

Vault Comics has announced The Devil’s Red Bride, a brutal samurai grindhouse epic by writer Sebastian Girner, rising star artist John Bivens, colorist Iris Monahan, and letterer Jeff Powell. Set in 16th century Japan, The Devil’s Red Bride is a blood-drenched love letter to Samurai fiction in a chilling tale of guilt, trauma, and vengeance.

The fates of warlords ebb and flow like tides of blood, none more than the Aragami Clan who follow their lord clad in the ‘Red Devil’ mask into every battle. But when Lord Aragami succumbs to illness, his daughter, the fierce Ketsuko, hatches a plot to save her people, no matter the cost…Years later, as Ketsuko wanders the heaving battlefields of her ruined homeland, she discovers a chance to avenge the terrible wrong done to her clan, even if it means stepping back onto a road steeped in slaughter.
