Cult Classic: Return to Whisper is the flagship title in a new non-superhero shared universe launching from Vault Comics in 2018. The lead title is written by Eliot Rahal (The Paybacks, Ninjak) and Felipe Cunha (Flash Gordon), but creators on board for other Cult Classic titles include Jen Bartel, Paulina Ganucheau, Katy Rex, Vita Ayala, and more – and if you were trying to make a list of “creators to watch in ’18” they’d all be on it.
The story line is described as being “a bit like Goosebumps meets the Goonies, by way of Riverdale, with a healthy dose of Welcome to Night Vale.”
If that sounds crazy, it’s all laid ut in a bit more detail in the trailer for the series. YOu can watch the trailer below and pick up issue #1 on Feb. 28th.
And here’s the Irene Koh variant cover.
