It’s going to be launching with Pete’s story ‘Dying Inside’, which has been made alongside Hannah Klein, and Lisa Sterle.
Pete had this to say about it:
“Creating a new graphic novel with Vault and one of my favorite writers, Hannah Klein, has been an insane experience–in the best possible way. Between her perspective, honesty, and super dark sense of humor and Vault’s creative support throughout the entire process, I’m excited to share it with the world soon.”
