Are you ready to get your spooky on? I mean, yeah, it’s the middle of June, but for horror fans it’s never too early to read something creepy.
The folks at Vault Comics have announced a brand new annual event that they have dubbed Nightfall, which will shine a light on different horror stories.
You know. Spookily.
The first book they’ve announced is The Plot, from Tim Daniel, Michael Moreci, and Joshua Hixson. The Plot focuses on a family that, naturally, has a bunch of secrets, not the least of which has to do with the ancestral homestead.
Using the word “homestead”? Yeah, that’s guaranteed spookiness right there. Check out the details below.
Tales to make your skin crawl.
Vault Comics just introduced Nightfall, an annual event focused on tales of horror. As part of Vault's catalog, select new series introduced between September and November will include the Nightfall icon, promising genuine horror. Paste Magazine has more details in their exclusive announcement.
The first title to launch with the Nightfall badge is THE PLOT, a dark thriller written by Tim Daniel (Fissure, Enormous) and Michael Moreci (Wasted Space, Mall, Roche Limit). Joshua Hixson's art will pull you into the depths of a family secret and won't let you go.
Issue #1 arrives in September, 2019.
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.
MORE ABOUT THE PLOT
For fans of Haunting of Hill House and Conjuring, plus classic Stephen King such as Salem's Lot and Pet Sematery.
Michael Moreci says "This is the most emotional book I've ever written. 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 adds, "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 hit comic shops and digital retailers this September.
