First Three Issues of Vault Comics' "These Savage Shores" Receive Additional Printings
Apr 22, 2019
Vault Comics is thrilled to announce that, due to extremely high demand in the series, These Savage Shores #1-#3 will receive an additional printing with special collector's set covers.
These design-led covers, created by Vault's VP of Branding & Design, Tim Daniel, feature striking silhouettes of the book's main characters while highlighting exceptional inks from the books within the outline.
"Vault's CEO & Publisher, Damian Wassel, wanted to pursue a series of interlocking covers," explains Daniel. "The design goal was to emphasize the incredible characters that writer Ram V and artist Sumit Kumar have introduced in These Savage Shores. With a uniform presentation, the result stylistically accounts for Damian's direction while luring new readers to the story with Bishan, Kori, and Count Grano front and center."
"At the same time we aimed to reward current readers and collectors of These Savage Shores with a fresh presentation of the material - one that would be worthy of their interest," Daniel adds. "The covers were heavily inspired by Mondo Tees artist Olly Moss, whose stunning series of Star Wars posters are beautifully designed."
One of the most critically-acclaimed comics of 2018 with interest that continues to grow rapidly as the series concludes this year, These Savage Shores is written by Ram V, drawn by Sumit Kumar, colored by Vitorio Astone, and lettered by Aditya Bidikar.
