On August 3rd, 2022, The Vineyard #1 by writer Brian Hawkins, artist Sami Kivelä, colorist Jason Wordie, and letterer Taylor Esposito, will arrive. When The Vineyard #1 arrives, it will feature a main cover by Kivelä with Wordie and an incentive cover yet to be announced. However, you can get your first look at this issue right here, today at The Beat.
Here’s the description of The Vineyard from the publisher:
THE VINEYARD is a family-owned winery that sows and reaps by the blessing of the great god of wine and revelry, Dionysus. However, the Vines family’s patron god requires complete devotion in the form of four sacrificial killings a year before each harvest. This has been done in unfettered obeisance. But all of that changed when the family’s patriarch, Didache Vines, was in a horrible accident that left him paralyzed and in a wheelchair.
Now, the sacrificial and murderous duties of the Vines family have fallen to wife and matriarch, Maranatha Vines. With harvest season fast approaching and the family short of their annual sacrificial killings, Maranatha’s struggle with her conscience puts all of her family – husband, son and daughter – in jeopardy.
Written by Brian Hawkins (Black Cotton, Believe in the Name, Don’t Ever Blink) and illustrated by Sami Kivelä (THE HEATHENS, UNDONE BY BLOOD, Abbott), THE VINEYARD is what happens when family values and otherworldly obligations collide.
Available August 3rd
