A treasure hunt.
A group of plucky teens.
Yes friends, Vault Comics’ upcoming series Relics of Youth appears to have it all. The series will debut this September, and follows a group of teens as they make their way to the Bermuda Triangle after mysterious tattoos appear on their arms. There they’ll go on the hunt for mysterious relics, develop strange abilities, and yes, encounter some pirates. Check out the details below.
RELICS OF YOUTH searches for the last drop of magic.
Just announced, RELICS OF YOUTH takes you to the Bermuda Triangle in a story rife with mystery, ancient magic, danger and friendship. Landing on shelves in September, the fantasy series is co-written by Chad Rebmann (The Odyssey, Judo Girl) and screenwriter Matt Nicholas, with artist Skylar Partridge (Crowded, Volume) and letterer Deron Bennett (The Dark Crystal, Resonant) on the team.
“It’s been a personal highlight to work with the RELICS team and watch this story come to life,” says co-editor David M. Booher (Canto), who is collaborating with Vault's Editor-in-Chief Adrian Wassel. “I’m a huge fan of young adult adventure—everything from Hunger Games to Tomb Raider—and the moment Adrian told me about the series, I jumped at the chance to be even a small part of it. Matt and Chad’s scripts create a perfect blend of thrills, snarky fun, and relationship drama. When I saw Skylar’s art, I was stunned. RELICS is the next great series from Vault, and I can’t wait for readers to come along for the ride.”
RELICS OF YOUTH follows Nat Rodriguez and five other teenagers from across the globe who are drawn together by the sudden appearance of an ancient tribal tattoo on their arms. When combined, the tattoos act as a compass leading to the mystical island of Oshtia, an uncharted island that has resurfaced in the center of the Bermuda Triangle after 500 years.
When the teenagers make landfall, they discover a deadly paradise that houses ancient and powerful relics. As Nat and her new allies manifest incredible powers, they’re swept into a centuries old mystery involving the protection and exploitation of magic. Just when the group realizes the island is dying, they’re met with the arrival of modern day pirates who threaten to plunder the island’s powerful treasures.
Relics of Youth #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers this September.
