Vault Comics announced today that two of their upcoming titles have already sold out at the distributor level on their release days and are being rushed back to the printer for a second run. Barbaric: Axe to Grind #1 and Heart Eyes #1 will have second printings in September when their second issues release. The books will also feature fresh cover art.
Barbaric: Axe to Grind is the second book in the massively successful fantasy/comedy hybrid series written and co-created by Michael Moreci, drawn and co-created by Nathan Gooden, colored by Addison Duke, and lettered by Jim Campbell. The full synopsis is below:
It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for – the start of an all-new arc of BARBARIC! Follow Owen and his magical companion, the tender, talking Axe as they spread kindness and hope in a world gone bad…just kidding! Owen, Axe, and Soren are back, and so is all the mayhem and bloodshed that follows them wherever they go! This time, they’re out to settle an old score against Gladius, a wicked a$$hole who did Owen wrong way back in his barbarian days. As always…it’s just f***ing barbaric.
Heart Eyes is the brand new Lovecraftian horror/romance hybrid series co-created by writer Dennis Hopeless (Sea of Stars, X-Men First Class) and artist Victor Ibáñez (Jean Grey, Extraordinary X-Men), with colors by Addison Duke and letters by Simon Bowland. The full synopsis is here:
Sanity-eating monsters ended humanity. The unlucky few who survived now hide in the cracks of a broken world. And yet somehow, beneath the graveyard that used to be San Antonio, Rico met Lupe, the girl of his dreams. But how did she get here? And why is she smiling? No one survives out in the street. No one smiles where the monsters lurk.
The Barbaric: Axe to Grind #1 second printing will go on sale September 21 while the Heart Eyes #1 second printing will go on sale September 28.
