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.

The first title under the “Nightfall” banner will be The Plot, co-written by Tim Daniel and Michael Moreci and drawn by Joshua Hixson.
