On this episode of Comics Deserve Better, Brian and Logan geek out about the darkly comedic, crime comic 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank by Matthew Rosenberg, Tyler Boss, and Thomas Mauer.

They break down the cast of annoying, yet endearing middle-school-aged characters, their favorite sequences, and the connections that this Black Mask Studios masterpiece has to other works of pop culture. Brian and Logan also discuss the latest indie comics news, including Graham Coxon‘s comic Superstate from Z2, the announcement of Vault‘s queer monster love story Hollow Heart and Geoff Johns and Gary Frank‘s creator-owned series Geiger, and a new ordering format from Scout Comics. They also talk about the upcoming Black Hammer: Visions and their dream creators on the miniseries. Other comics mentioned on the show are We Only Find Them When They’re Dead, Getting It Together, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, and 12 Reasons to Die. (Episode art by Tyler Boss)

Vault Announces Hollow Heart, a Queer Horror Story from Paul Allor and Paul Tucker

Vault Comics has announced Hollow Heart, a queer horror story from writer and letterer Paul Allor, and artist Paul Tucker. Hollow Heart reunites the two Tet creators for a queer monster love story about the choices we make between giving our loved ones what they want and giving them what we think they need.

The release of Hollow Heart marks the official expansion of Vault’s horror imprint, Nightfall, into a year-round publishing imprint. Instead of occurring once a year in autumn, Nightfall horror titles will now be released throughout the entire year.

Hollow Heart follows EL, who used to be human, but now he’s a jumble of organs in a bio-suit. El is also in tremendous pain and has been for a very long time. Hope arrives in the form of Mateo, a mechanic brought in to work on EL’s suit. Mateo sees EL in a way no one else ever has. And what’s more: Mateo offers EL an escape.

Hollow Heart #1 hits store shelves in February 2021, and will launch with a Vault Vintage variant cover by Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel that pays tribute to Frank Miller and Paul Rubenstein’s legendary cover to Rom: Space Knight #1.
