CMON is known for its over-the-top Kickstarters but the publisher has used the platform for an interesting project. They have taken some of their popular properties and brought them to the world of comics… with a board game tie-in too.

Zombicide, Cthulhu: Death May Die, and Zombicide: Invader each has gotten a graphic novel and of course a tie-in for their respective games as well.

We open up the package to show off the three graphic novels and boxes for the games. We’ll do a further unboxing of the game materials at a later date.

Vault Announces World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw, a Vampire: The Masquerade Event

Vault Comics has announced World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw, a multi-property World of Darkness event that spins out of Vault’s smash hit Vampire: The Masquerade comic book series. In World of Darkness, there is more lurking in the shadows than just vampires, and this event will shine a light on just what else hides in the night.

The World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw event will be told by a murderers row of the best comic creators working today. The series is written by Jim ZubTim SeeleyBlake HowardTini Howard, and Danny Lore, drawn by Julius Ohta, colored by Addison Duke, lettered by Deron Bennett, and designed by Tim Daniel. The series will feature covers from legendary horror artists Aaron Campbell and Joshua Hixson.

In World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw, Cecily Bain has become everything she never wanted as The Prince of the Twin Cities. But her rule over a fractured, backbiting vampire court is interrupted by an intruder—something big, hairy, and full of teeth. For over a century, werewolves of the Twin Cities have protected their blessed places from threats both physical and spiritual. When vampires under Cecily rule move in on one of these precious sites, it’s a declaration of war, one that Tyrell ‘the Stainless’ Stinar and his ferocious pack will avenge at any cost.

The three-issue event will launch in September 2021. Making the series even tastier for fans of Vampire: The Masquerade, each issue of World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw will include exclusive gaming material for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition of the tabletop RPG from Renegade Game Studios, allowing players to actually play the events of the series in their own games.

Marvel’s Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar Comics are Getting Variant Covers for Games Workshop’s Warhammer Stores

Games Workshop and Marvel announced in September of 2019 that they would be partnering for a new line of comics based on GW’s properties. In June of 2020, the first comic was announced, Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar which was released in October of 2020.

Games Workshop usually has some sort of tie-ins for this sort of partnership regarding their stores so it was rather odd that the game publisher was a bit silent about the new venture and haven’t sold the comics in their stores both physical and online.

Today GW announced that the comic will be coming to Warhammer shops with exclusive variant covers the first of which will be released very soon.

Check out the first cover below and we’ll have more as they’re revealed and announced.
