Missoula, MT (5/29/2020): Vault Comics announced that two upcoming series, HEAVY and HUNDRED WOLVES will now both be released in September 2020. Because of the Covid-19 shut down, Vault decided to shift their publishing schedule to better accommodate readers and comic shops during these tumultuous times. HEAVY #1 will now be released on September 9th, 2020, and HUNDRED WOLVES #1 will be released on September 16th, 2020.
HEAVY is co-created by writer Max Bemis (Polarity, Moon Knight, X-Men: Worst X-Man Ever) and Eryk Donovan (Memetic, Quantum Teens Are Go), with colors by Cris Peter, letters by Taylor Esposito, and design by Tim Daniel. HEAVY is a dark, violent comedy about love and the transcendence of toxic masculinity. The story centers on Bill, who, though he may be dead, still has a job to do. Welcome to the Big Wait, where folks who don’t quite make the cut go to work off their debt. Everyone in the Wait’s got a job. Bill is a Heavy, whose job is policing the multiverse, making sure bad eggs get what’s coming to them. He’s on track to earn his Climb and reunite with the woman he loves…until he meets his new partner: the worst dude of all time. Heavy is The Punisher for neurotics; Inception for the impatient; Preacher for…well, it’s a lot like Preacher. Max Bemis and Eryk Donavan bring you a story about the existential purpose of dumb boys with big guns.
HUNDRED WOLVES is co-created by writer Myke Cole (The Sacred Throne Trilogy, The Shadow Ops Trilogy) and artist Tony Akins (Fables, Hellblazer, Wonder Woman), with colors by Vladimir Popov, letters by Jim Campbell, and design by Tim Daniel. The Hundred Wolves are bloody-handed terrors of the steppe. Andrei and Oksana have left the Cossack band to raise their daughter on a farm they hold from the noble Count Ostoja, but the raiding life isn’t done with them. Both the Hundred Wolves and the couple’s new liege lord wish to employ their deadly skills—and neither will take no for an answer. From celebrated author Myke Cole and venerable artist Tony Akins comes a story of war and family, blending historical fiction with a touch of fantasy.
