Available in stores today, Vault Comics’ Dark One is the latest release from prolific author Branson Sanderson (the Mistborn Trilogy, the Stormlight Archive series). It’s a graphic novel that also features the talents of Jackson Lanzing (writer), Collin Kelly (writer), Nathan Gooden (artist, cover artist), Kurt Michael Russell (Colorist), and Andworld Design (letterer).
Dark One is the first in a new graphic novel series, and here’s a brief synopsis of the story: “Paul Tanasin is a young man haunted by visions of a dark and fantastic world—visions he initially believes are hallucinations. But when he discovers they are prophecies from Mirandus, a world in which he’s destined to become a fearsome destroyer, he’ll have to embrace the fear, rise up as the Dark One, and shatter everything. Dark One examines the dual roles we often take on in life-the ability to be a savior as well as a destroyer.”
