Vault Comics To Launch Young Reader Graphic Novel Imprint
Vault Comics, an independent fantasy and science fiction comics publisher founded in 2016, announced plans to launch Myriad, a middle grade and young adult graphic novel imprint set to debut in 2019.
Myriad will be headed by Vault Comics cofounders Adrian Wassel, Vault editor in chief, and Tim Daniel, Vault v-p of branding and design.
The new middle grade and YA imprint will offer original graphic novels and serialized graphic works as well as a lineup of new and established authors and artists. The initial list of titles and creators will be announced in November 2018.
Wassel said, “Myriad is a place for emerging and established creators alike to reach the broadest possible audience. Current Vault fans will enjoy the selfsame care and craft in Myriad—and now their kids can, too. The idea is simple: Tell stories just as daring, just as beloved, and just as relevant as those coming out of Vault, but for an even wider audience.”
“Young readers want to make their own heroes—so our heroes must be equally reflective of all of us, representing who we are broadly and as individuals,” Daniel said. He added: “The name of our new line expressly conveys our goal, and what we we are delivering to readers."
