Vault Comics has announced a new fantasy series debuting this September, Relics of Youth. Co-written by Chad Rebmann (The Odyssey, Judo Girl) and screenwriter Matt Nicholas, with artist Skylar Partridge (Crowded) and letterer Deron Bennett (Batman), the story explores the secrets lying deep down in the heart of the Bermuda Triangle.
After a recurring dream about an island, Nat Rodrigues soon realizes the dreams are now waking visions. Nat locates other teens around the world who share her intense obsession with the unmapped enclave. To make a strange situation even stranger, every one of them wakes one morning with a mysterious tattoo that only the six of them can see. They come to the conclusion that they must find this unknown place no matter what.
“Relics of Youth manages to catch lighting in a bottle, balancing compelling drama with glowing moments of exuberance, in the spirit of Runaways or Morning Glories,” said Vault Editor-in-Chief Adrian Wassel. “You’re instantly pulled into a world of young, lovely, and broken-but-healing characters you can’t help but root for, as they uncover an ancient mystery and some pretty dazzling powers, too.”
“It’s been a personal highlight to work with the Relics team and watch this story come to life,” says co-editor David M. Booher (Alien Bounty HunterCanto). “I’m a huge fan of young adult adventure—everything from Hunger Games to Tomb Raider—and the moment Adrian told me about the series, I jumped at the chance to be even a small part of it. Matt and Chad’s scripts create a perfect blend of thrills, snarky fun, and relationship drama. When I saw Skylar’s art, I was stunned. Relics is the next great series from Vault, and I can’t wait for readers to come along for the ride.”
“As a comic fan-turned creator, it has been a rewarding experience developing this comic with the likes of Vault Comics – who I have been a fan of since their inception,” said Nicholas. “Chad, Skylar and I couldn’t have found a better team to help us shape this property into a series we know everyone will love as much as we do.”
“It’s been such an amazing experience to be working with Adrian, David and the entire Vault crew this past year,” added Rebmann. “Relics of Youth has been a passion project for both me and Matt and watching Skylar Partridge bring this magical world to life with her stunning art has been a real treat.”
Relics of Youth #1 hits shelves September 25 and will feature a cover by Partridge as well as a Vault Vintage cover by Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel. The Vault Vintage cover is an homage to Wes Craig’s cover for Deadly Class #1, the series he co-created with Rick Remender.
