The Plot

The inaugural title of Vault’s new Nightfall line, THE PLOT is written by Tim Daniel (Fissure, Enormous) & Michael Moreci (Wasted Space, Mall)and drawn by Joshua Hixson (Shangai Red).

In order to receive…first you must give. When Chase Blaine’s estranged brother and sister-in-law are murdered, he becomes guardian to McKenzie and Zach, the niece and nephew he hardly knows. Seeking stability for the children, Chase moves his newly formed family to his ancestral home in Cape Augusta—which overlooks a deep, black bogland teeming with family secrets.


“The first third of this comic lures readers into a family drama involving two estranged brothers […] There is a great balance between realistic dialogue and unspeakable horror and a cliffhanger that practically demands the reading of the next issue.”

New York Times

"The Plot is a simple tale lifted greatly by a fantastic gothic tone and astounding artwork."

Comic Crusaders

"The Plot has been an absolutely beautiful and haunting tale of a family stitched together in heartbreak, the strength of the bonds built, and the horrors of the past that they must all face – together."

Wandering Nerdgirl

"The team here did some really great creative horror material with all the right chills and disturbing moments throughout."
