It's Cover Stories time, as a variety of comic book publishers try to get retailers to judge a book by its cover, or lack of one. Vault Comics have managed to recruit David Mack for a couple of variants for their launch of Vampire: The Masquerade. Each issue of the Vampire: The Masquerade will include exclusive material for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition of the tabletop RPG from Modiphius Entertainment. These materials enable readers to play alongside the unfolding comic events in their own in-game chronicles.
The cover by Mack will come in two different printed variants. The first, in purple and blue, will be a standard, open order variant. The blood red version will be a special, deluxe variant, printed on thick card stock, with silver foiling and spot-gloss highlights, and will sell for $9.99.
Vampire: The Masquerade is co-written by Tim Seeley, Tini Howard, and Blake Howard, with art by Dev Pramanik and Nathan Gooden, with colors by Addison Duke, letters by AndWorld Design, design by Tim Daniel, and covers by Aaron Campbell, Nathan Gooden, and David Mack. The first issue will hit store shelves on August 5th, 2020.
