Vault Is Laying Some Interesting Plot Threads

Alright, I missed the boat on the first few of these. What do you think these images mean? Are they a celebration of things already created, or a tiny preview of things yet to come?

Dark Horse Acquired by Embracer Group

Dark Horse has been acquired by Embracer Group. What does this mean for the comics? Probably not much. A lot of acquisitions like this are about a holding company gathering IP so they can get some more profits. But that’s just me pulling thoughts out of thin air.

Legacy Comix Announces a Dracula Prequel as an $8,000 Stretch Goal

It takes a lot to get me this excited about a public domain character. Not that don’t think people should make Frankenstein or Sherlock Holmes things, but anyone can so there isn’t a novelty there.

Or possibly getting to use the notes written by the creator of the property. Legacy Comix is bringing another banger to the table with bringing the Strokerverse into the fold.

Lebeau Underwood to Ink Cover For Legacy Comix Title Athos

In a wonderful move from such a new publisher, Legacy Comix is working with Lebeau Underwood on inks for the cover of Athos. You might know Lebeau’s work from The Union, Daredevil, and Scream: Curse of Carnage.

To put it bluntly, this is a big deal. For Legacy Comix to have someone of this caliber wanting to work with them before a book has even come out is a giant testament to the work that Patrick, John, and the entire team is doing over there.

To quote Patrick in a very short impromptu interview:

We ain’t done yet
