Brian Schirmer & Elena Gogou's Quests Aside in Vault's April Solicits

As promised, a new title written by Fairlady's Brian Schirmer in the deconstructed fantasy vein, drawn by Elena Gogou and launching from Vault Comics as part of their April 2022 solicitations. Brian Schirmer is best known for writing FairLady, Black Jack Ketchum and Ultrasylvania.  He tweeted last month "Just had an amazing call about a new series that's getting announced – deeeeep breath – next month! As things kick into high gear for yours truly" with Elena posting supportive gifs in response. Elena Gougu is a comic artist best known for her work in Greece's comic industry, including the recent graphic novel Spazorahoula written by Steve Stivaktis from Jenna Press. No visuals as of yet but I am sure that will come…
