Vault Announces Engineward, a New Series from George Mann, Joe Eisma, Michael Garland, and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou

Vault Comics has announced Engineward, a zodiac-inspired, twelve-issue science-fantasy comic series written by George Mann, drawn by Joe Eisma, colored by Michael Garland, lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou and designed by Tim Daniel.

In Engineward, Earth is an ancient myth, long forgotten. Now, the god-like Celestials, who embody the surviving zodiac signs, rule with brutal efficiency. When Joss, an Engineward, discovers and reactivates the head of a fossilized Ghoulem, she learns all is not as intended. Her destiny—and the truth about her imperious rulers—lies somewhere far beyond the borders of her shantytown.

Every issue of Engineward will feature a special “Zodiac Cover” drawn by Joe Eisma and designed by Tim Daniel that portrays one of the twelve Celestials of Engineward, released according to the zodiac calendar and the sign they represent.

Engineward #1 debuts with a Pulp & Paint B cover variant by Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel. It hits store shelves in June 2020.
