Vital Publishing’s flagship title School of the Damned by John Farman hits its 7th issue with a change of main artist but the hope was that this new 2-part story would keep the same momentum ticking along.
Artist John Howard has worked on some of my favourite indie releases in recent years and in particular, Royal Descent from Vital Publishing and I’m even lucky enough to own some of the original pages from that title (as well as some other sketches) but he’s a name that hopefully more will come to recognize.
Vital Publishing released the fourth issue of it’s Royal Descent title just recently and they’ll be following that up with a collected trade soon too, so it seemed like a perfect time to catch-up & revisit a book that already impressed.
Vital Publishing had a jam-packed year of releases to try to maintain with some previous titles getting a reprint, some titles being continued & some new titles being introduced.
I recently caught up with John Richard Farman to talk about his new venture Vital Publishing that will see a new home for his titles & a new set of challenges.
