Vault Comics Explains What's Going On With Cult Classic: Return to Whisper

Cult Classic: Return to Whisper, by Eliot Rahal and Felipe Cunha, launched at Vault Comics last year to quite a bit of fanfare, but only three issues of the five-issue series ended up seeing print by last April, with the fourth issue removed from Diamond's website. In July, Vault will bring Cult Classic: Return to Whisper back to print in the Vault Vintage format, followed by a double-sized reprint of issues #2 and #3 in August, and finally the conclusion of the series with a double-sized print containing issues #4 and #5 in September. Second time's the charm? Vault promises there will be "no interruptions in your scheduled programming" this time.

After that, Vault says it will launch another comic set in the Cult Classic universe.

Missoula, MT (04/24/2019): Vault Comics has announced that Eliot Rahal and Felipe Cunha's Cult Classic: Return to Whisper #1 will return to print in July, 2019, as the series gets an updated release schedule.

The second printing of Cult Classic #1 receives the Vault Vintage treatment honoring Johnny Craig and his iconic 1954 cover for EC Comics' Crime SuspenStories #22.

In August 2019, Vault Comics will republish Cult Classic: Return to Whisper issues #2 and #3 together as a double-sized special issue. September 2019 will see the release of another double-sized issue that wraps up the entire miniseries, just ahead of the launch of another, as yet unannounced new series set in the Cult Classic shared universe.

The Cult Classic series bring to life a dark, chilling, creator-owned shared universe set of stories. Return to Whisper draws you in to a terrifying tale… In 1997, a group of teenagers discover a treasure of immeasurable wealth. Fearing that their newfound fortune will be stolen from them, they make a pact: One day they'll all come back as adults, divide their riches, and live happily ever after. Now…fifteen years later, they have returned. Not to uncover a fortune, but to bury a friend. From Eliot Rahal (Hot Lunch Special, Quantum & Woody) & Felipe Cunha (Flash Gordon, Turok) comes the finale to the first full-length series in the much anticipated Cult Classic Universe!

Cult Classic: Return to Whisper Vault Vintage second printing will hit store shelves on July 31st, 2019. Preview pages can be found on the Cult Classic: Return To Whisper page of the Vault Comics website. The official synopsis can be read below:
