Vault Comics has been an advocate for genre titles since its inception, showcasing great works of sci-fi and fantasy with a bit of horror here and there. This fall, the publisher begins Nightfall, an annual event focused on the macabre with select new series bearing the cool icon seen above.

Vault Editor-in-Chief, Adrian Wassel, says of Nightfall, “For a little over two years, Vault’s mission has been to bring you the best in science fiction and fantasy. But there’s no denying our affection for the macabre has wormed its way into many of our series. Nightfall—even more than an annual event—is a badge. It tells readers and retailers which of our stories will be truly terrifying. Sure, they might contain some sci-fi or fantasy, but if you crack open a Nightfall cover, your skin will crawl.”

Nightfall will begin as annual event, bringing you some delightfully dreadful comics from some truly remarkable creators each fall,” says Vault CEO & Publisher, Damian Wassel. “But, like every initiative we launch at Vault, we have some big, as yet unspoken plans for Nightfall, to bring our readers more of that late-October feeling horror fans crave.”

Tim Daniel, Vault’s E.V.P. of Branding and Design adds, "Nightfall is all about allowing us to maintain our core focus while embracing our love of horror. Every title under the Nightfall banner will receive the same strict care and attention our readers have come to expect.”

The first Nightfall title will be The Plot, co-written by Tim Daniel & Michael Moreci and illustrated by Joshua Hixson. Here's the rite-up from Vault:

In order to receive...first you must give. When Chase Blaine's estranged brother and sister-in-law are murdered, he becomes guardian to McKenzie and Zach, the niece and nephew he hardly knows. Seeking stability for the children, Chase moves his newly formed family to his ancestral home in Cape Augusta—which overlooks a deep, black bogland teeming with family secrets.

"This is the most emotional book I've ever written," says Moreci. "It's everything I love dearly about horror, where the scares come from the characters and their intense personal journeys. This is horror you feel chilling your bones. It's horror that lingers when you try to sleep at night."

Artist Joshua Hixson says, "The best kind of horror confronts us with our buried secrets and darkest thoughts—all that we try to keep dormant. The Plot drags those to the surface and forces us to look. It’s everything I love about horror, and everything I love about drawing it."

The Plot #1 will feature a Vault Vintage cover by Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel which is an homage to Bernie Wrightson's cover for House of Secrets #92. Look for it at your local comic shop in September 2019.
