Launch Announcement

For immediate release.

Publisher Vault Comics has announced its Winter 2017 Season of Comics, which features five titles from emerging and established creators. Vault will follow the Winter 2017 Season with an additional five titles in its Summer 2017 Season.

Founded in 2016 by Adrian Wassel, Damian Wassel, and Nathan Gooden, Vault Comics publishes original, creator-owned science fiction and fantasy comics.

Adrian Wassel, Editor-in-Chief at Vault, explains their focus on these genres: “Science fiction and fantasy strive to imagine and experience the new and the strange. Science fiction and fantasy continue to lead the way in diversity among creators and readers. These genres grant the disenfranchised voices. They create landscapes in which the establishment has fallen. They place minorities, both real and imagined, at the helm of their narratives. They pull apart conceptions of race, gender, and social identity. As genres, they ask some of the hardest questions, and are often the only genres gutsy enough to venture answers, too. Of course it helps that these are four-quadrant genres with historically strong sales and explosive recent growth. But that’s really just the icing on the cake.”

Vault will release advance previews of its Winter 2017 Season at San Diego Comic Con.

Vault’s Winter 2017 Season includes:
KARMA POLICE.  Created by Chris Lewis (Drones [IDW]), and Tony Gregori (Lucha Underground [El Rey]). Written by Chris Lewis, with art by Tony Gregori, colors by Jasen Smith, and letters by Nic J. Shaw (The Fix [Image]).

Writer Chris Lewis explores the cosmic implications of using violence as a means to pursue peace, in this series that is at once edgy, irreverent, and intensely humane. Vividly realized by artist Tony Gregori, with dreamlike colors from Jasen Smith, this kaleidoscopic fantasy-adventure features a cast of characters ranging from warrior monks to demonic luchadores.

Karma Police tells the story of Jack Allen, a young woman who has been recognized as the reincarnation of a Tibetan monastery’s holiest monk. Trained as a compassionate assassin, Jack soon discovers an enchanted dagger from her previous incarnation’s bloody past. But she’ll have to resist its lure to stop the violence surrounding her in the present.

In stores February 01, 2017.

FISSURE. Created by Tim Daniel (Enormous [Image & 215Ink], Burning Fields[BOOM!], Curse [BOOM!]), and Pato Delpeche. Written by Tim Daniel, with art and letters by Pato Delpeche.

Emerging master of terror, Tim Daniel, blends science fiction and horror in a story teeming with inescapable dread. Amid the political upheaval of an imagined future that feels too close for comfort, Fissure asks what happens when the ground on which American society is built literally crumbles under our feet?

El Sueño, Texas, was a single street town withering under the shadow of the Mexico—U.S. Barrier. Then the pavement split, and a massive crack spread from one end to the other, rapidly swallowing El Sueño whole. Young couple Avery Lee Olmos and Hark Wright fight to escape the mysterious sinkhole and the malevolent force that beckons from its depths.

With startling art from newcomer Pato Delpeche, Fissure forces readers to examine the cracks running beneath it all.

In stores February 08, 2017.

FAILSAFE. Created by F.J. DeSanto (Transformers: Combiner WarsCyborg 009[Archaia]), Todd Farmer (Jason XMy Bloody Valentine 3D), and  Federico Dallocchio (Suicide Squad: Kicked in the Teeth [DC]). Written by F.J. DeSanto and Todd Farmer, with art by Federico Dallochio, and letters by Travis Lanham.

Veteran creators F.J. DeSanto and Todd Farmer turn their filmmaking talents to comics in this cinematic action epic. This near future thriller explores the perils of human enhancement and divisive politics.

When he executed the last nanotech-enhanced super soldier, John Ravane thought that was the end of the haywire Insurgence Program. Ten years later, in the wake of social unrest, its true legacy is revealed. As sleeper agents scattered throughout the country activate, Ravane must stand between a government he cannot trust and the soldiers he once hunted.

Federico Dallocchio’s stylized art and sophisticated palette make familiar locations feel unsettlingly alien.

Portions of Failsafe were previously published as Insurgent from DC.

In stores February 15, 2017.

COLOSSI. Created by Ricardo Mo (Propeller [Comixology]) and Alberto Muriel (Propeller [Comixology]). Written by Ricardo Mo, with art by Alberto Muriel, colors by Jon Adams (Enchanted Tiki Room [Marvel], Cyborg 009 [Archaia]), and letters by HdE.

Together again after their critical success, Propeller, emerging creators Ricardo Mo and Alberto Muriel channel the vibe of B-movie classics to deliver a high-tension romp with dark wit aplenty.

When Trans Atmos Shuttle 34 disappears into a wormhole, its pilot and passengers are launched into an adventure of gigantic proportions. Lost in an oversized parallel universe, the group must put aside their differences and unite to survive a hostile environment. But the biggest threat they’ll face is the one that hitched a ride on Shuttle 34.

Colossi is Land of the Giants during an Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

In stores February 22, 2017.

POWERLESS. Created and written by David M. Booher, with art by Nathan C. Gooden (Killbox [AGP]), colors by Mike Spicer (Suicide Squad: Most Wanted [DC],Mad Max: Fury Road [Vertigo], Head Lopper [Image]), and letters by Deron Bennett (Jim Henson’s Tales of Sand [Archaia]).

First-time creator David M. Booher partners with award-winning artist Nathan C. Gooden to turn the superhero comic upside down.

Protagonist Billy Bannister lives in a world without superheroes. Not because powers don’t exist. But because everyone has them. After the outbreak of PRV, a virus that rips away those abilities, Quarantine emerges to stop the spread. An elite agent, Billy is the last line of defense against contagion. But his loyalty is tested when the infection hits too close to home.

On the surface, Powerless is a high-concept action comic; at its core it pushes readers to reconsider questions of power, race, social identity, and what is essential to humanity.

Gooden’s incredible artwork is brought to life with jaw-dropping colors from veteran colorist Mike Spicer.

Powerless is produced in partnership with Blood Moon Creative.

In stores March 01, 2017.

Vault Comics publishes the new, the daring, and the diverse in science fiction and fantasy comics.

THE SKIES ARE DIM ALWAYS SINCE THE MAKER DIED

  • “The Great Sage OF, the Mountain!” by Arnold Cassel
  • “The Missing Peace” by Fred Hicks

A must read!

The Indestructibles’ series goes intergalactic with Like a Comet

Young superheroes face alien invasion in the latest novel

The Indestructibles have traveled through time to an apocalyptic future and faced down sentient hurricanes and human plagues. But when a world-destroying species threatens Earth, the young super-powered heroes will need all the help they can get—asking old friends to return and former enemies to become allies—to save their entire world.

Like a Comet is the world—and solar system—spanning adventure bringing The Indestructibles: Series 1 to an explosive, cataclysmic close.

Everything in the series, which was named one of the “Best of 2014” by SuperheroNovels.com, has led to this epic battle for the heroes—Jane, the solar-powered girl; Kate, the ballerina turned vigilante; Billy, whose powers stem from a symbiotic alien who acts as his conscience and guide; Titus, a werewolf with confidence issues; and Entropy Emily, the sci-fi obsessed girl genius with a gravitational anomaly where her heart should be.

“This is where the first arc has always led,” says author Matthew Phillion. “When I set out to write a love letter to the comics and superhero stories I loved growing up, I had a list of classic must-tell stories I wanted them to experience, and a space story—or let’s face it, the right word here is ‘cosmic’ since we’re talking super-heroics—was something I knew I had to build up to.”

The book also brings back fan favorites from earlier in the series, like Project: Valkyrie, Bedlam, Prevention, and Agent Black.

“It’s been fun to revisit those secondary characters,” Phillion said. “The focus has always been on the five kids and their mentor, Doc Silence, so I’m excited to have a chance to give some screen time to popular supporting characters.”

Like a Comet combines space opera, wide-screen comic book action, and the Indestructibles series’ signature pop culture self-awareness and winks and nods to the classic stories that inspired the books.

Book 4 wraps up Series 1 for the heroes, but it won’t be the last we see of the team.

“One of the big fears with ongoing series is that you’ll be left hanging,” Phillion said. “I’ve tried to set up each Indestructibles adventure as a self-contained story, but Like a Comet really brings the first arc home. If this were a comic, this is where we’d collect the first omnibus edition!”

Now that the young heroes have adventured through both time and space, readers can expect Jane, Kate and the team to get back to basics next.

“They’ve saved the world a few times,” Phillion says. “I’d like to spend some time with them as hometown heroes too.”

Phillion has worked as a journalist, writer, and editor for almost 20 years. He is also the writer, director, and producer of the feature film “Certainly Never.”

The Indestructibles series is available digitally on Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Apple iBook and Kobo eBook formats. Print copies for the entire series are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble as well as from independent bookstores everywhere, Ingram, Baker & Taylor, and Books-A-Million (BAM).

Squirmish comes to Kickstarter

SQUIRMISH: THE CARD GAME OF BRAWLING BEASTIES
DOES BATTLE ON KICKSTARTER

A Different Kind of Beast-Fighting Card Game for Kids Begins Crowdfunding Campaign

 

Minneapolis, MN, Squirmish is a new beast-battling card game for kids that launched on Kickstarter Friday the 13th of May. An alternative to mainstream card fighting games like Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh, the Squirmish deck features 54 unique cards (108 if the game reaches its first stretch goal). Unlike those mainstream monster-fighting games, Squirmish is designed with the emphasis on playing rather than collecting… all of the cards needed to play are included in the deck.

The game is for 2-4 players, takes about 30 minutes to play, and is for ages 7 and up (no babies).

Each card has a different ridiculous character, with names such as “Mr. Bottom,” “Figboot,” and “Big Dumb Bear.” The game-play is pretty straightforward… you draw a card, place a card, move or attack, and resolve special abilities. However, the cards’ wildly-varying special abilities add infinite variety and strategic complexity to the game.

Cards are placed next to each other in the middle of the table facing the player that places it (this makes it so everyone can keep track of their cards). The mass of cards is known as The Squirmish. Cards can only attack cards adjacent to them (unless a special ability lets them do otherwise)
The game also has some funny quirks. Each card has a “battle cry,” which when said in a silly voice when the card is placed gives that card +1 to its attack. Also, some cards belong to groups (such as the “Spooner Valley Cryptids,” “The Fraternal Order of Strange Fellows” and “The Biscuit Sisters”) with group abilities that are activated when more than one member of that group is in play. Players are encouraged to use o-shaped cereal to keep track of a card’s damage.

The game was recently reviewed by the website Board Gaming at Home. Their review (which includes a play-through of the game) can be seen here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyw1JzRJ6Ss

The game was also reviewed at the website Geekdad:

“Overall, I’ve had fun with Squirmish both with my kids and with adult players. I think it’s a lot of fun for families. The dice-based abilities mean that there’s still a good amount of chance involved, which gives less-experienced players a chance to take on more-experienced players, so gamers who want something with pure strategy may not like it quite as much. And don’t forget to shout your battle cries as you enter the fray!” – Jonathan H. Liu on Geekdad.

The first player to knock out three of their opponents’ cards for their victory pile wins the game.

The Kickstarter campaign runs until June 12th. You can see it here:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/stevenstwalley/squirmish-the-card-game-of-brawling-beasties

The game has a website, which includes previews of cards you can learn about before the game is released, so you can have one up on your opponents: http://squirmish.net

About Delta Green:
Deception is a right. Truth is a privilege. Innocence is a luxury. Born of the U.S. government’s 1928 raid on the degenerate coastal town of Innsmouth, Massachusetts, the covert agency known as Delta Green spent four decades opposing the forces of darkness with honor, but without glory. Stripped of sanction after a disastrous 1969 operation in Cambodia, Delta Green’s leaders made a secret pact: to continue their work without authority, without support, and without fear. Delta Green agents slip through the system, manipulating the federal bureaucracy while pushing the darkness back for another day — but often at a shattering personal cost.
