Vault Comics has announced a new multi-property World of Darkness event, World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw. Spinning out from it’s popular Vampire: The Masquerade comic book series this new three-issue event series will be brought to you by writers Jim Zub, Tim Seeley, Blake Howard, Tini Howard, & Danny Lore, and artist Julius Ohta, coloured by Addison Duke, lettered by Deron Bennett, and designed by Tim Daniel. The series will feature covers from legendary horror artists Aaron Campbell and Joshua Hixson.
“In World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw, Cecily Bain has become everything she never wanted as The Prince of the Twin Cities. But her rule over a fractured, backbiting vampire court is interrupted by an intruder—something big, hairy, and full of teeth. For over a century, werewolves of the Twin Cities have protected their blessed places from threats both physical and spiritual. When vampires under Cecily rule move in on one of these precious sites, it’s a declaration of war, one that Tyrell ‘the Stainless’ Stinar and his ferocious pack will avenge at any cost.”
Launch in September 2021 each issue of World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw will include exclusive gaming material for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition of the tabletop RPG from Renegade Game Studios, allowing players to actually play the events of the series in their own games. A novel idea and yet another example of how comic books can evolve and attract new readers moving forward.
Look out for World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw #1 this September from Vault Comics
