The 2019 convention for the American Library Association (ALA) kicked off with huge news that DC was consolidating its line under three “brands.” That left many to wonder about the future of the DC Zoom and DC Ink graphic novel lines. Launched last year, the new graphic novel imprints were focused on the young adult and middle grade readers and have been hits so far. DC followed up those concerns with an announcement of a slate of graphic novel releases aimed at those young adult and middle grade readers.
These graphic novels continue the focus on stories not part of DC’s ongoing continuity making them accessible to new fans. The releases also focus on the original mandate of YA titles being about “everyday aspirations, struggles, and triumphs,” while the middle grade releases being focused on stories about “friends, family, and growing up.”
Vault Comics this delivers “Nightfall” this fall. “Nightfall” is an annual event focused on tales of horror. Every year as the weather turns brisk and autumn sets in, “Nightfall” comes.
As Vault continues its usual line, select new series introduced from September to December will bear the “Nightfall” icon, promising genuine horror. A “Nightfall” series will release like any other Vault periodical, concluding based on the title’s planned length.
Vault is known for its science fiction and fantasy but “Nightfall” is a line focused on horror. While it might have some sci-fi or fantasy, when you read “Nightfall,” it’ll make your skin crawl. It allows the company to maintain its core focus while also embracing their love of horror.
The first title under the “Nightfall” banner will be The Plot, co-written by Tim Daniel and Michael Moreci and drawn by Joshua Hixson.
In order to receive…first you must give. When Chase Blaine’s estranged brother and sister-in-law are murdered, he becomes guardian to McKenzie and Zach, the niece and nephew he hardly knows. Seeking stability for the children, Chase moves his newly formed family to his ancestral home in Cape Augusta—which overlooks a deep, black bogland teeming with family secrets.
– The Plot
The Plot #1 will receive a Vault Vintage Cover B by Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel, an homage to Bernie Wrightson’s classic House of Secrets #92 cover (DC Comics).
