Relics of Youth is a new fantasy series from Vault Comics coming this September. Co-written by Chad Rebmann (The Odyssey, Judo Girl) and screenwriter Matt Nicholas, with artist Skylar Partridge (Crowded) and letterer Deron Bennett (Batman) Relics of Youth centres around the Bermuda Triangle and a group of like-minded teenagers who all wake up one morning with the same, mysterious tattoo.
Nat Rodrigues keeps dreaming of an island. Soon, the dreams become waking visions. Alone and concerned, Nat manages to locate other teenagers across the globe who share her intense obsession with the unmapped enclave. And then, the strangest part: Every one of them wakes one morning with a mysterious tattoo. A tattoo only the six of them can see. Now, each of them knows – no matter the obstacles in their way – they must discover this unknown paradise.
Think Runaways or Morning Glories according to Vault Editor-in-Chief Adrian Wassel:
You’re instantly pulled into a world of young, lovely, and broken-but-healing characters you can’t help but root for, as they uncover an ancient mystery and some pretty dazzling powers, too.
The series will launch with a Cover A drawn by Skylar Partridge, and a Vault Vintage Cover B drawn by Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel. The Vault Vintage cover is an homage to Wes Craig’s cover for Deadly Class #1, the series he co-created with Rick Remender.
Relics of Youth #1 hits shelves September 25, 2019.
