Image First Look: ‘Vinyl’ #1

The series that is ‘Dexter’ meets ‘Nailbiter’ hits shelves this June.

From Plastic creators Doug Wagner and Daniel Hillyard comes Vinyl, a new dark comedy/horror series that will launch in June on Image Comics.

“This is all Daniel Hillyard’s fault,” said Wagner. “He asked if I thought we could create a story about serial killers, inhuman monsters, and a cult of sunflower farmers all trapped together inside an underground bunker. I mean, you have to do that, right?”

Image pitches Vinyl as Dexter meets Nailbiter, and Hillyard calls is “the sickest, most messed up, beautiful thing Doug and I have worked on to date.”

Vinyl #1 hits shelves June 23. Check out a preview, as well as Image’s full press release, below:

PORTLAND, Ore. 03/18/2021 — Plastic creators Doug Wagner and Daniel Hillyard return with Eisner Award winning colorist Dave Stewart for a new dark comedy/horror titled, Vinyl. The six issue miniseries will launch from Image Comics this June.

When Walter’s best friend, the FBI agent charged with his capture, is kidnapped by a death cult of all-female sunflower farmers, Walter finds himself deep within an underground labyrinth filled with secrets and monsters…but are their monsters more horrific than his?

“This is all Daniel Hillyard’s fault,” said Wagner. “He asked if I thought we could create a story about serial killers, inhuman monsters, and a cult of sunflower farmers all trapped together inside an underground bunker. I mean, you have to do that, right?”

Perfect for fans of Dexter and Nailbiter, Vinyl is an unsettling tale of psychopaths, sweet love, and a serial killer named Walter.

Hillyard added: “If you liked Plastic, then brace yourself! Vinyl is the sickest, most messed up, beautiful thing Doug and I have worked on to date. I’m biased, of course, but what can I say. I love our gore-baby.”

Vinyl #1 Cover A by Hillyard and Stewart (Diamond Code APR210132) and Vinyl #1 Cover B by Hillyard and Stewart (Diamond Code APR210133) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 23.

Vinyl #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
