Vault Announces Anand Radhakrishnan Incentive Covers for The Picture of Everything Else #1

Vault Comics has announced two new gorgeous Anand Radhakrishnan incentive covers for The Picture of Everything Else #1. Anand’s cover art will come in two different versions: a regular cover will be available as a 1:15 variant, while a deluxe foil edition printed on thick card stock will be available as a 1:30 variant.

The Picture of Everything Else is written by Dan Watters, drawn and colored by artist Kishore Mohan, lettered by Aditya Bidikar, and designed by Tim Daniel.

As the 20th century dawns, art promises to change the world…and steep it in blood. A rash of impossible killings sweep through Paris, tearing the rich and beautiful apart in their beds. When two art thieves stumble upon the portraits of the victims damaged in the exact same manner they died, it appears the man who once painted the immortal portrait of Dorian Gray has returned—with darker plans for future works. From the minds of Dan Watters (Coffin Bound, Lucifer, Home Sick Pilots) and Kishore Mohan comes a haunting balance of depravity and beauty.

In Jacey’s past is the Important Man who took away her brother. Now Jacey has David, who sometimes transforms into a terrifying beast. Together, they’ve found a way to live to hunt, sniffing out men who prey on the vulnerable. But Jacey and David are about to run into the Important Man again. From Paul Cornell (Wolverine, Doctor Who, Elementary) and Sally Cantirino (Last Song, We Have To Go Back) comes a haunting story about the monsters that walk beside us all, and sometimes lurk within.

After the stunning success of Fearscape, comes A Dark Interlude, the story of-No!

The only offense to literature greater than the loathsome synopsis is the sequel. I will not stand idle while some poor excuse for an editor mangles and confuses my story, which is intact, perfect, and concluded, with this derivative drivel. Mark my words, this nonsense has nothing to do with my tale. I am not in it. I do not condone it. And you, dear reader, should not buy it.

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.

Giga #1 Sells Out Before Release and Heads Back to Press

Vault has announced that Giga #1 is going back to press for a second printing after selling out of a generous overprint at the distributor. The second print cover features a new “Starry Night” version of the now-iconic original cover by Giga artist and co-creator, John Lê. It will hit store shelves on December 2nd, the same release date as issue #2.

The Giga #1 second print will be available in two different versions. The first version (SEP208040) will be a standard comic cover with a $3.99 SRP. The second version (SEP208041) will be a special foil cover on deluxe heavy-weight card stock, with a $9.99 SRP.

Nobody knows why the skyscraper-sized mechs known as ‘Giga’ fought their bitter, centuries’ long war. All they know is that when the fighting finally stopped, the dormant Giga became humanity’s new habitat and new gods in one. When disgraced engineer Evan Calhoun finds an apparently murdered Giga, his society and the fascistic tech-centered religious order that controls it are rapidly thrown into chaos.

From writer Alex Paknadel (Friendo, Empyre: Celestial Messiah) and rising star John Lê comes another Vault & White Noise partnership about what happens after the mechs stop fighting.

GIGA is co-created by writer Alex Paknadel, and artist John Lê, with colors by Rosh, letters by Aditya Bidikar, and designs by Tim Daniel. The sold out first printing of issue #1 goes on sale October 28th, 2020.

Review: The Devil’s Red Bride #1

The Devil’s Red Bride #1

From the start, The Devil’s Red Bride #1 is a visceral, bloody tale set of warfare most brutal. A clan at war with another. One warrior that sets its clan apart from the other. However, their lord who wears the Red Devil mask, is not the one leading them into battle. The flipside of this tale is Ketsuko, whose clan fell to the Red Devil many years ago, who now is on her own path for vengeance.

Samurai tales are right up my alley. I live on a steady diet of Akira Kurosawa movies and The Blind Swordsman and really, just about anything of the ilk. So for me, I tend to flock to comics that go down that very same road. From my own taste in this genre, I can say The Devil’s Red Bride #1 totally works, both in story and tone. I wish I was more of a scholar of 16th century Japanese history and assume this is the Edo period. For that, this type of samurai story feels like it has a lot of parallels in what I enjoy. Sebastian Girner, who wrote The Devil’s Red Bride, seems to have done his research and is able to channel a really good samurai/revenge story.

Artist John Bivens and colorist Iris Monahan deliver a beauty of a tale. The color palette works perfectly with the art. It’s a stylish book that feels respectful of the material. There are some absolutely killer pages here. The opening page feels like something from a traditional woodblock print. As the story progresses, there’s some great panel work and a bit of gore thrown in for good measure. As with many books, I wish there was a smidgen more detail thrown into the art but it’s a minor complaint here. I think this comic looks quite excellent.

Overall, I think that if your tastes are like mine, you grew up on samurai cinema or if you just want something totally different, The Devil’s Red Bride #1 offers all of that. I’m looking forward to where this story goes and one can hope it ends like so many samurai tales, with two opponents standing their ground and steel being swung all over the place. Recommended.

Story: Sebastian Girner Art: John Bivens

Story: 9.0 Art: 8.0 Overall: 8.5 Recommendation: Read/Buy
