Vault Comics are part of Diamond Comic Distributor's Final Order Cut-Off scheme, which allows retailers to increase or decrease their orders closer to the date of publication.
And today is Vault Comics' first such opportunity. For the launch of Natasha Alterici's Heathen (as tweeted and headlined above), and Tim Daniel and Patricio Delpeche's Fissure.
And it seems that Vault has just got Alterici's covers for the second and third issues of Heathen – which has given Bleeding Cool the chance to a) debut them and b) run exclusive extended previews of Heathen #1 and Fissure #1
So first those covers…
And extended previews…

Born into a time of warfare, suffering, and subjugation of women, she is on a mission to end the oppressive reign of the god-king Odin.

El Sueño, Texas was a single street town withering under the shadow of the Mexico-U.S. Barrier. Then the pavement split, and a massive crack spread from one end to the other, rapidly swallowing El Sueño whole. Young couple Avery Lee Olmos and Hark Wright fight to escape the mysterious sinkhole and the malevolent force that beckons from its depths.
