Vampire: The Masquerade, the classic vampire, based Role Playing Game, is coming to the comic book format thanks to Vault Comics.
Since 2016, Vault Comics has built its reputation by producing creator-owned comic book series from up-and-coming creators that explore the strange, unusual, and downright weird potential inside the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres. Vampire: The Masquerade, the publisher’s first foray into licensed property, has the company is aiming high, with a comic book series based on the popular role-playing game.
Vault Editor in Chief Adrian Wassel said in a statement in The Hollywood Reporter,
“When Vampire: The Masquerade launched in 1991, it felt like the first RPG to embrace dark and mature themes largely ignored by previous games. Close to 30 years later, following the successful launch of the 5th edition, Vampire: The Masquerade is exploring new avenues of storytelling with our comic series. I can’t imagine a better team than the one we’ve assembled.”
“As you get deeper into the series, you’ll discover how the two stories connect, unearthing a city-shaking conspiracy. This is Vault’s first comic outside the world of creator-owned, and we’re thrilled to be partnered with a brand that shares our commitment to the very best genre storytelling.”
That creative team behind the project is Tim Seeley (Revival, Hack/Slash, Nightwing), Tini Howard (Death’s Head: Clone Drive, GLOW) and Blake Howard co-writing, with art from Devmalya Pramanik (Adventure Time, Paradiso) colors by Addison Duke and covers from Aaron Campbell. The series will focus on two different worlds: the life of a courier for the Camarilla in Minneapolis, and a murder investigation amongst the Anarch Movement. The common thread linking the two? A secret that could upset vampire society as a whole.
Each issue of the series will also include exclusive material for the latest edition of the Vampire: The Masquerade game that will allow players to incorporate the comic’s storyline into their own adventures.
Vault’s Vampire: The Masquerade arrives shops this July.
