New Heathen #1 by Natasha Alterici in Vault's February 2022 Solicits

Back in September, Bleeding Cool noted that at the Diamond Retailer Summit held online this weekend, Vault Comics promised that there would be more to talk about Natasha Alterici's Heathen in 2022. Which means a) a new Heathen series to accompany the Omnibus, following the third series drawn by Ashley A Woods from 2020, but also possibly b) more news on the previously announced movie being developed. And be timed for Vault Comics' fifth anniversary in 2022. And in Vault Comics' February 2022, we have the first part of that, at least.

WEAR YOUR LOVE ON YOUR CHEST
A man, a woman-and their parasites. Marcus has been alone since the loss of his closest friend and has just recently entered into the dating scene, while Laura has drifted in and out of relationships since high school. They meet, they have a great first date, and Marcus almost dies-because the slug-like parasite that everybody carries in this world nearly rejects him, its host. Bonding is a funny, quirky, and honest look at love, in a world where everyone wears their anxiety, not on their sleeves, but on their chest like big ol' leeches.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN "AVERAGE" DAY FOR POIKO!
Have you ever had to deliver a care package to a dragon with allergies? Have you ever been waylaid by a school of space fish? That's just an average day for Poiko, the kingdom's most reliable courier. The world can be a big, scary place, but it can also be wondrous. Sad things can happen, but there are always good friends to turn to, or new friends to make. And no matter what, there is always, always someone who could use your help. Poiko learns all these lessons and more every time he brushes his tail, pulls on his hoodie, and steps out into a new adventure. The philosophical whimsicality of Calvin & Hobbes meets the fantasy-scapes of Adventure Time in this modern-day classic.
