What is vault comics? A question I get asked quite often. It can be confusing, but there's a pretty simple explanation. vault comics is an online comic book store that sells comics digitally.
vault comics was started in 2021 by comic artist Scott Kubrow and super publisher Eddy Franchis. They worked out of their home in Southern California. They launched with an original line of horror comics. The quality of their work has been praised by many people. Many people have become patrons of the vault comic book store.
Over the past few years, vault has branched out into various other genres. Currently they have a publishing arm for prestige science fiction novels and another for traditional romance and humor books. They even published a fictional comic book series about a teenager who becomes a Time Lady. Another comic book series they are publishing is based on the hit movie, Twilight. These comic book creator were not always in it to make money they truly enjoy writing these books.
For some time, I had been thinking about getting into comics myself. I am a big fan of science fiction and superhero comics. The only problem was how I was going to pay for them. Fortunately, after studying the independent comic book publishers in the market, I was able to find a publisher who publishes monthly comics in PDF format. This format is ideal because it won't break the bank to get a physical comic published. Even if you are new to this medium, it is easy to learn how to publish PDF comics.
After getting in touch with vault comics' editor in chief, Joe Bennett, I made my pitch. I told him that I had many ideas for story lines and characters but wanted some help from experienced letters. He let me know that I was on the right track but wanted some color assistance. As luck would have it, my friend is a full-time college student who is also in charge of his comic book publisher. He was willing to help me out and suggested that I contact him so we could see if he had any in-house letters.
vault comics editor in chief, Joe Bennett, told me that he couldn't offer me any professional help because I wasn't a professional. He didn't understand why I would want an editor of this caliber to handle my project. I asked him if he knew of any comic creators whose work he had produced. He told me that he had a few names but most were just creators who were doing their first comic. He couldn't offer me any advice or recommendations because I was not a professional.
After trying to explain what I wanted, Joe informed me that he didn't actually know of any established science fiction or horror comics creators who were in the business of creating both mediums. I had been looking for a publisher who would take a chance on me since I am a complete newbie. I had no idea that there were actually other publishing houses that would hire established writers and artists in the comic book industry. So Joe and I brainstormed about my various ideas and asked for a few suggestions from vault editors.
The editor recommended two creators that he knew of, Greg Rugg and Frank Harrell. He said that they had a good grasp on both genre and were relatively new. They had only released one comic book so far and that was the aforementioned "Vault Comics: Gods & Monsters." I was really impressed with their portfolio and felt that they were a perfect fit as the new "Gods and Monsters" editor. I am now in the process of contacting vault comics, my graphic novel publisher, and other established publishers in the comic book industry to collaborate on new projects.
