“Civilization is a lie. Hidden deep in our genes is the truth. And it is slowly clawing its way to the surface. Olivia Kade knows the truth, and she has become the prophet of the coming collapse. Her book, SATYR, is an international bestseller, and it is being blamed for acts of senseless violence and bloodshed all over the world. Olivia’s own life is in danger from those who have read her work. Determined to conduct a book tour, she hires security professional Connor Wilson to act as her bodyguard. She only has one requirement: he cannot read her work.”
I’m so blown away by this first issue! I just finished an early read (as I type this, it’s about one month before the book comes out), and I’m so excited for horror fans to get their hands on it. Aspects of it remind me of In the Mouth of Madness, but even more twisted. I’m so, so excited for this story to unfold.
The art was beautiful and haunting, with just the right amount of gore. The colors are gorgeous and really set the tone. The lettering is fantastic. Vault Comics never fails to put out books with exceptional teams that truly bring a vision to life.
I can’t wait to see what happens next!
