Dark One

From Hugo Award winning, New York Times Best-Selling author, Brandon Sanderson (The Mistborn Trilogy, The Stormlight Archive series) comes DARK ONE, a new graphic novel series from Vault Comics. 

Paul is a young man who sees visions of strange and fantastic worlds―visions he initially believes are hallucinations. But these visions turn out to be prophesies, dark projections of a world in which Paul is a tyrant who destroys the world and the creatures that reside there. Dark One examines the dual roles we often take on in life – the ability to be a savior as well as a destroyer. 


“A dramatically dark fantasy that will leave readers eager for the sequel.”


“Brandon Sanderson’s DARK ONE is the realization of a supremely ambitious Vault Comics ideal. It’s a literary comic that blends high concept storytelling interests across genres without sacrificing any of the craft, structure, or character development needed to make narratives compelling and immersive.“

Comics Bookcase

“A story that both perfectly captures and totally swerves common cliches and storytelling staples.“

The Brazen Bull

“[DARK ONE is] a brilliant graphic novel that has some amazing themes delving into the duality of man and light and dark. The creative team tells Paul’s story beautifully, making sure that this novel will leave an impact.“

But Why Tho?

“Everything about this book is excellent, from the writing, art, lettering – every bit drips with that flare Vault comics all have.“

Wandering Nerdgirl

"[DARK ONE] a supremely well-executed graphic novel."
