Missoula, MT (05/20/2024) – Vault has announced a new mature readers imprint, Threshold, under which the publisher will release spicy comics for adult readers. The first title under the new imprint will be Lilith, a phenomenal sexy horror series written and drawn by Corin Howell, with colors by Warnia Sahadewa, letters by Jim Campbell, and design by Tim Daniel.
The Threshold imprint will maintain Vault’s well-known and beloved focus on genres such as science fiction, fantasy, and horror, but with a spicy new twist. Lilith is just the first of many Threshold series to be announced in the coming months.
The character of Lilith, created by Howell, is a genuine social media phenomenon. Howell’s Lilith illustrations have become a phenomenon, garnering millions of likes on Howell’s social platforms, making Lilith one of the most popular original illustrated characters on social media. And now, Lilith will be the star of her own unforgettable comic book series.
Lilith is an immortal who’s been banished from her home, a dimensional plane suspiciously similar to mankind’s idea of hell. She’s been posing as a model on Earth while secretly preying on humans. That is, until she runs into Penelope, a sweet bookstore owner with a tome that might hold the secret to returning Lilith to her home dimension. If the mismatched pair doesn’t end up falling in love first!
“I work primarily in horror, I love monsters and creature features, and drawing it used to give me some semblance of calm, but the ease was always short-lived,” said Howell. “Until one night, when watching YouTube videos and doodling on my iPad. I decided to stray away from the usual monster and creature prompts and dive into drawing a beautiful woman with black hair, an appetite for blood, and piercing red eyes. I found myself at ease, more so when drawing her in red, her outfit blending with the background similar to the style of Rene Grau, and the only thing indicating her shape was the splatter of black “blood” that soaked her figure. It was a “Screw it,” moment when I threw her out onto social media, thinking, “Whatever, no one’s gonna like this.
“I completely and utterly underestimated the internet.
“The positive feedback kind of motivated me to try another piece, and again I was met with ease in my mind when setting down more lines of her devilish figure. Adding a severed head was a cherry on top, something funny to indicate that perhaps she killed an unfaithful lover or maybe he just pissed her off that day. With every new illustration, I found myself having fun drawing this little lady and started pondering whether or not she needed a name. One night, when talking to my friend Sasha online, she shared her thoughts, “She looks like a ‘Lilith’.” And since then, it stuck. Simultaneously, Lilith’s story developed into this journey of how a cold, distant monster finds companionship, and along the way learns to move on from her past.”
Lilith #1 will hit store shelves in August 2024. The debut issue will feature an incredible line of variant covers drawn by legendary artists Jae Lee, Tula Lotay, Zoe Thorogood, Angela Wu, and more.
