WHAT IS IT?

A young adult, supernatural adventure comic centered around a mysterious island.


It may be a little early to tell, but I'm getting strong Goonies/Lord of the Flies/Maze Runner.


WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

(Minor Spoilers)

Six teens notice tattoos only they can see have appeared on their body. They point somewhere in the direction of the ocean. What else can they do but heed their call?

When they get there, they discover their destination definitely has a history to it, and likely some danger.


But why were they called here? Can they survive the dangers of the island and protect its relics – ancient, magical artifacts from a world lost long ago? And can they survive the danger that is each other and the myriad other things they haven’t even planned for?

WHAT WORKS?

  • The cover for this first issue not only introduces you to the cast of characters, it also subtly shows off the iconic tattoo for those perceptive enough to spot it.

  • Speaking of the cast, we get some really strong representation (something Vault seems to keep in mind for all of their titles).
