New This Week: VANISH

September 23, 2022

Local creator Donny Cates has a new series premiering this Wednesday, and it’s one you won’t want to miss! Vanish is an all-new take on the classic hero’s quest!

From the publisher: “Oliver Harrison was a mythical hero who slayed the greatest threat to his realm before even hitting puberty. But that was then.

As an adult, Oliver leads an average cookie-cutter suburban life-aside from the fact that he’s mentally unstable, massively paranoid, smokes like a chimney, and gets blackout drunk every night to hide from his horrific nightmares. Will the arrival of a superhero team called the Prestige prove the madness isn’t all in Oliver’s head? And what about all the epic fantasy crap from his childhood?

Join us for a brutal as hell tale of magical worlds, gifted youth, evil sorcerers, superheroes, war, blood, guts, and death that punches you right in the face!”

Cates has made a name for himself in the industry through his incredible talent and perseverance, beginning with short indie series like Buzzkill before catching the eye of Marvel studios and being awarded titles such as Doctor Strange and Thor. Donny is a Texas native through and through, and we’ve been grateful to host him several times at the Lair over the years. We will have an exclusive cover for Vanish #1 that will only be available at Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy®, so be sure to pick it up this starting 9/22/22!
