Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (THE PLOT & RELICS OF YOUTH). Normally my weekly comic list features books from a variety of publishers. However, this week I’m choosing to feature all 5 comics from Vault Comics. This indie publisher has come a long way in the short three years since its inception, and I wanted to do my part in showing my appreciation for their dedication to amazing story-telling. Here is a list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop.
Like many readers I try to budget my purchases, which can become difficult when there are so many quality books being published each week. So here are 5 titles to consider picking up this week.
THE PLOT #1 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Michael Moreci, Tim Daniel, Josh Hixson, Jordan Boyd, Jim Campbell
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.
MALL #2 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Michael Moreci, Gary Dauberman, Zak Hartong, Addison Duke, Jim Campbell
Andre and his mysterious companion dig deeper into Andre’s frame-up-and deeper into the Mall’s nefarious history. Meanwhile, on the surface, factions collide. All-out war is on the horizon. But maybe that’s what someone is hoping for?
RELICS OF YOUTH #1 – $3.99

Now, each of them knows-no matter the obstacles in their way… they must discover this unknown paradise.
