Vault Comics, an all-new comics publisher, first made themselves known at San Diego Comic-Con in 2016, and the co-founders, publisher Damian Wassel, art director Nathan Gooden, and editor-in-chief Adrian Wassel, gave an interview to CBR back in November. But now it's time to get specific about what's coming this year from Vault.
A.V. Club has exclusive previews from its first six launches, and we have covers and info about the books below. As Vault has previously made clear, its focus is on sci-fi and fantasy --- but the publisher has found a lot of variety within those genres.
After the year most of us just had, I think we can all sympathize with the idea of just starting over again somewhere far away beyond the stars, and a new Kickstarter project seeks to do something very similar. Writer Shannon W. Lentz has put together a killer roster of some of the best sci-fi and fantasy artists for a new project called Cayrels Ring, which features eight distinct chapters that set the scene and establish a whole new galaxy.
On this day in 1981, the Rocketeer, a high-flying two-fisted hero created by the legendary Dave Stevens, made his first full appearance in comics. But the Rocketeer isn't a hero of 1981, he's a hero of 1938. In a very real way he's the product of both time periods, and united them in a manner that would influence many comics to come.
For just over five years, Action Lab Comics has been one of the key indie publishers leading the trend towards diverse storytelling, and one of the biggest feathers in its cap, alongside series like Voracious, Nutmeg, and Molly Danger, is the Eisner-nominated, Glyph-winning, all-ages fantasy series Princeless, an empowering take on fairytale princess tropes.
Andy Kaufman was one of the most enigmatic and interesting individuals to ever grace the world of comedy. Whether it was his gonzo stand-up, his appearances on Saturday Night Live, or his portrayal of the beloved character Latka in Taxi, a lot of people have their definitive Kaufman.
In 2018, Box Brown will sum up the multitudes contained within in a new graphic novel biography of Kaufman's life titled Is This Guy For Real?
Paradox Girl is legitimately one of the best comics I've read all year. Focused on a woman (well, a lot of women who are actually the same woman coexisting at the same time at different points in her life) who has the ability to effortlessly teleport herself through time, space, and the comics page, the series takes a premise that's built on the most complicated aspects of time travel stories and delivers on it with a lighthearted fun that seems almost effortless.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign that funded the first three issues, creators Cayti Bourquin and Yishan Li have returned for a crowdfunding campaign to bring readers Paradox Girl #4, 5, and 6. To find out more, ComicsAlliance spoke to Bourquin and editor Peter Bensley about the complexities of telling a story with a nonlinear heroine, and why a superhero story about Stompzillas and time travel is actually about learning to forgive yourself.
Tara Madison Avery and Jeanne Thornton of Stacked Deck Press have announced an anthology dedicated to transgender and nonbinary cartoonists, entitled We’re Still Here, showcasing the comics medium from the transgender/nonbinary perspective. The editors are also inviting open submissions from trans/nonbinary cartoonists who want to show what they can do.
