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.

Dynamite Celebrates 90 Years of Nancy Drew… By Killing Her

Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys: The Death of Nancy Drew

Happy birthday Nancy Drew, here’s a fridge! One of the stranger reveals so far of 2020 is Dynamite‘s Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys: The Death of Nancy Drew which will be released in April.

In reality, Nancy Drew is not dead as the announcement teases “Nancy Drew is dead! Or so it seems…” The release has understandably angered some as on the surface the concept of celebrating Nancy Drew by investigating her death is a bit odd. It’s Nancy Drew’s story… it just so happens to star the Hardy Boys.

The series is written by Anthony Del Col with art by Joe Eisma. Both took to Twitter to address the controversy.

Del Col Tweeted “not everything is as it seems…”

While Eisma responded to a Tweet asking if they just fridged Nancy, “I promise I would never do anything of the sort.”

The full release from Dynamite hints at more than just a murder mystery:

Through twists and turns, this dark noir-infused story unfurls as the biggest Nancy Drew mystery of all time. Nancy’s mysterious death follows one of her highest stake investigations into organized crime.

Could have Nancy faked her own death or gone into witness protection due to the mob?

Del Col and Eisma are joined by colorist Salvatore Aiala and letterer Crank! for this case.

We’ll uncover the truth when Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys: The Death of Nancy Drew comes to shelves in April.
