I for some reason have not been reading a lot of comics from Vault. I do not have a defensible explanation why. There are only two titles I'm actively pulling: Money Shot and Finger Guns..and based on what I've read today, at least one more Vault title is making the list!
Engineward #1 (Vault)---Releases 7/15 (preorders close 6/22)
Engineward takes place in some sort of rugged world (described as "when primal chaos remained wild). We are introduced to a small crew of folks who are out salvaging while looking for a specific item they dig from a rock wall...when all of a sudden they are attacked by a worm/dinosaur/tremor which they quickly dispatch of!
But to label this world as prehistoric would date it incorrectly as there is are robots and other forms of technology used...which makes you wonder why outwardly the civilizations don't look fully technologically enhanced.
Should you preorder this book?
If you like science fiction stories, or stories with a great deal of Mythos, then Engineward should definitely be on your radar. The story gets more interesting with each little nugget we discover about the past, and there is some sort of unknown complexity to the relationship between the individuals of the village AND the zodiacs.
The art in this book is also quite excellent, as the action scenes have nuance, the environment around dialogue-heavy panels, and just the contrast of the dusty old village to the opluent house of the zodiacs really pops.
Preorders for this book close on the 22nd, so you should quickly reach out to your LCS to make sure you have a copy!
