While Paste Magazine throws out its last death rattle before shuffling off this mortal coil, it’s still the place Vault Comics often favours to announce exclusive previews for new forthcoming series. Late last week we got news of new series Resonant from writer David Andry and artist Alejandro Aragon and colorist Jason Wordie. Something akin to Netflix’s hit Bird Box (based on the novel by Josh Malerman), if you read the synopsis below:
A decade has passed since the first Waves hit, unleashing humanity’s darkest impulses and plunging the world into chaos. Paxton, a single father of three, must venture from the secluded haven they’ve built to restock the medicine his chronically-ill youngest son needs to survive. When the somewhat routine trip goes awry, Paxton and his children-now separated-will battle everything in their path to reunite.
Coming with a Vault Vintage cover (homaging Y: The Last Man #1) it’s out July 24th, but ahead of that, here’s a preview of the debut issue – a whopping 9 pages! – with an art style not too dissimilar to that of Sean Murphy (Batman: White Knight). Nice.
