Vault Comics announced the first slate of titles to be published by its new young adult and middle grade focused label, Myriad.
Wrassle Castle, a middle-grade title written by Paul Tobin & Colleen Coover. Paul and Colleen previously collaborated on Banana Sunday and the Eisner-winning Bandette. The artist will be announced soon.
Lydia Riverthane has always wanted to join Wrassle Castle, but due to her parents’ disapproval has been forced to secretly train in the forest. Her three best friends Chelsea, Deandra, and Lyle—aka the Underground Alibi Society—help her by providing cover stories when needed. Lydia also secretly trains with her brother, John Gator-Chomp, a high-ranking wrasslin instructor. Lydia idolizes her brother—until he’s arrested for stealing one of the Legendary Wrasslin Folios! A crime he DID commit! But…why? Lydia believes the only way she can learn the truth, and more importantly save her brother, is to enter and win the Grand Wrasslin Tournament.
Bonding is a YA title written by Matthew (Long Lost) Erman with art by Emily (The WIlds, Snap Flash Hustle) Pearson.
A man, a woman—and their parasites. Marcus has been alone since the loss of his closest friend and has just recently entered the dating scene, while Laura has drifted in and out of relationships since high school. They meet and strike up a good rapport, learning about each other, friendship, and how to deal with the slug-like parasites that have infected humanity. Bonding is a funny, quirky, and honest look at love, in a world where people wear their anxieties, not on their sleeves, but on their chests like big ol’ leeches.
Unfinished Corner written by Dani (Ody-C, Black Jack Ketchum essays) Coleman. The art team will be announced soon.
Jewish mythology has it that when God created the universe, He left a tiny corner of it unfinished. Opinion is divided on why, but everyone agrees that the Unfinished Corner is a dangerous place full of monsters. Twelve-year-old Miriam neither knows, nor cares about the Unfinished Corner. She’s too busy preparing for her Bat Mitzvah, wrestling with whether she even wants to be Jewish—until an angel appears, whisking her and her best friends Avi and David off to this crazy and monstrous land with a single mission: Finish the Unfinished Corner.
These three comics will be published throughout 2019 and 2020.
