The comic industry is having a tough time during this COVID-19 pandemic, especially local shops. Vault Comics has announced a gift card initiative to help retailers stay afloat while their doors are shuttered.
Readers who purchase a gift card from their local comic store will receive free advance copies of Heavy #1 by Max Bemis and Eryk Donovan, and Hundred Wolves #1 by Myke Cole and Tony Akins, months ahead of their scheduled release.
Here is how it works:
1) Call, email, or reach out via social media to your local comic book retailer.
2) Purchase a gift card from them for any amount.
3) Submit any proof of purchase, along with the local comic shop you purchased your gift card, here.
4) Vault Comics will send participants an email containing free, advanced, digital copies of Heavy #1 and Hundred Wolves #1
5) If you like the two issues, add them to your subscription list at your local comic shop.

Bill may be dead, but he’s got a job to do.
Welcome to the Big Wait, where folks who do’t quite make the cut go to work off their debt. Everyone in the Wait’s got a job. Bill is a Heavy, whose job is policing the multiverse, making sure bad eggs get what’s coming to them. He’s on track to earn his Climb and reunite with the woman he loves… until he meets his new partner: the worst dude of all time.
Heavy is The Punisher for neurotics; Inception for the impatient; Preacher for… well, it’s a lot like Preacher. Max Bemis and Eryk Donovan bring you a story about the existential purpose of dumb boys with big guns.

The Hundred Wolves are bloody-handed terrors of the steppe. Andrei and Oksana have left the Cossack band to raise their daughter on a farm they hold from the noble Count Ostoja, but the raiding life isn’t done with them. Both the Hundred Wolves and the couple’s new liege lord wish to employ their deadly skills-and neither will take no for an answer. From celebrated author Myke Cole (The Sacred Throne Trilogy, The Shadow Ops Trilogy) and venerable artist Tony Akins (Fables, Hellblazer, Wonder Woman) comes a story of war and family, blending historical fiction with a touch of fantasy.
