From the internationally best-selling World of Darkness universe, Vault brings readers a brand-new Vampire: The Masquerade comic series, Winter’s Teeth.

When Cecily Brine, a courier for the Twin Cities Camarilla, takes a mysterious younger vampire under her wing, she’s dragged into an insidious conspiracy. Will she be able to escape with her unlife and protect her aging, Alzheimer’s afflicted sister, or will she be yet another pawn sacrificed to the Masquerade?

Meanwhile, an Anarch coterie investigates a mysterious killing.

I’ve had this lingering interest in all things Vampire: the Masquerade for longer than I can remember. I’ve had a lifelong love of vampires and stories about vampires. But getting into Vampire: the Masquerade itself was always intimidating to me.

Enter my savior – Vampire: the Masquerade #1 from Vault Comics.

In this enthralling first issue, we get a solid starting ground for the world of vampires we’re entering, and it’s all delivered both in an interesting way, as well as an informative way. The characters are so great, with so much depth added in with just the first issue. It’s really impressive how good it is, and how much is accomplished.

The amount of talent working on this book is insane, from writers to artists, and colors, designs, and letters. Vault always nails the creative teams for projects.

Vampire: the Masquerade hits shelves 8/5/20. Definitely pick this one up!
