From Vault Comics, The Plot concludes with issue #8.

This first title in Vault’s Nightfall line has been written by Tim Daniel (Fissure, Enormous) & Michael Moreci (Wasted Space, Mall) and drawn by Joshua Hixson (Shangai Red). The story, briefly, involves a family curse.
Chase Blaine’s brother and sister-in-law have been murdered, and Chase is now the guardian to a niece and nephew he doesn’t really know. They move to the old family home in Cape Augusta, overlooking a wetland. It’s chock full of yummy family secrets and wonderfully horrible potential.

And so is the entire mini-series; imminently readable, hooking us right from the start. But at issue 8, things are winding up, in a whirlwind of thick-lined artwork, spooky earth tone colours, and seething dialogue. The characters blend together from multiple dimensions, keeping the reader on their toes. There’s blood, flames, and loads of horror drama in this, the final episode. Pick up this one if you’ve been following along. Or jump in for the inevitable trade collection, Part two!

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
