Vault Comics Announces Money Shot #1 Black Bag Variants

Vault has announced two new Black Bag variants for Money Shot #1, each containing hilariously sexy covers designed for readers aged 18+. The first Black Bag variant is drawn by series writer and co-creator Tim Seeley, and the second is drawn by Mirka Andolfo

The two Black Bag covers will ship, as the name suggests, in a specially designed black poly-bag that obscures the 18+ art contained within. Both Black Bag covers will ship on October 23, 2019, the same day as the regular Money Shot #1 covers. The special covers contained within the black polybag will be a surprise not be revealed until the day of release.   

The Black Bag covers can be ordered using the following Diamond Order Codes: 

Mirka Andolfo (Cover C): JUL198907

Money Shot is set in the near future, where space travel is ludicrously expensive and largely ignored. Enter Christine Ocampos, inventor of the Star Shot teleportation device. Her big idea: She’ll travel to new worlds, engage-intimately-with local aliens, and film her exploits for a jaded earth populace trying to find something new on the internet. Now, Chris and her merry band of scientist-cum-pornstars explore the universe, each other, and the complexities of sex in Money Shot! A story about scientists having sex with aliens for the glory of mankind-and money.

Money Shot is written by Tim Seeley, co-scripted by Sarah Beattie, drawn by Rebekah Isaacs, colored by Kurt Michael Russell, lettered by Crank!, and designed by Tim Daniel.

Money Shot #1 hits store shelves on October 23, 2019.
