PRESS RELEASE

Vault Comics and ComicHub are thrilled to announce the two companies have partnered to promote Money Shot #1, the new sci-fi comic book series from best-selling writer Tim Seeley, comedian and co-scripter Sarah Beattie, artist Rebekah Isaacs, colorist Kurt Michael Russell, and letterer Crank!.

The new partnership will see the two fast-growing start-ups continue to take the industry by storm to expand the audience of what will be one of the year’s most exciting new series. ComicHub’s cutting edge direct-to-reader marketing & pre-order tools will expand Money Shot’s presence in the mind’s of retailers and readers internationally. ComicHub’s “Available At” map feature will be a key part of Vault’s strategy to help retailers in a sweeping sell-through campaign.

Further, retailers who participate in Vault Comics’ BOOK IT pre-order system will receive a special $100 discount when they sign up for ComicHub at Retailer.Comichub.com.

Money Shot is set in the near future where space travel is ludicrously expensive and largely ignored. Enter Christine Ocampos, inventor of the Star Shot teleportation device. Her big idea: She’ll travel to new worlds, engage-intimately-with local aliens, and film her exploits for a jaded earth populace trying to find something new on the internet. Now, Chris and her merry band of scientist-cum-pornstars explore the universe, each other, and the complexities of sex in MONEY SHOT, a story about scientists having sex with aliens for the glory of mankind-and money.

“We have worked with a lot of publishers since beginning ComicHub,” said ComicHub VP, Atom! Freeman, “and few have impressed us the way that the team at Vault have. Their commitment to building quality books and growth in the Direct Market have been fun to watch and a joy to collaborate on. The ideas and innovation they bring to projects like Money Shot guarantee them a place as a powerhouse in this industry.”

“ComicHub aims to provide the software solution the comics market has always wanted, a single platform to manage orders, handle payments, and track data, for vendors, retailers, and customers. It could be altogether revolutionary,” said Vault CEO & Publisher, Damian Wassel. “Vault will be working hard to make sure we make the most of this bold new tool.”

Vault Comics is a private, family-owned company, publishing science fiction and fantasy comics and graphic novels. Vault encourages its creators to break the established order, defy preconceptions of society and identity, and push the boundaries of the medium with bold visions and voices that connect with readers and capture their imaginations.
