Nain Rouge: The Red Legend Release

Nain Rouge: The Red Legend Release

  • Vault of Midnight Detroit

For many centuries now, since the earliest French settlers laid the cornerstone of Detroit, a mischievous red imp known as the Nain Rouge has been spotted at the center of mysterious accidents and chaotic mayhem. Every year, the citizens of Detroit march against this devilish harbinger of doom, striving to cast him out of the city, and hopefully bringing freedom from his troublemaking ways. Now, the myth of the Nain Rouge is retold in a spooky graphic novel, "Nain Rouge: The Red Legend." 

We at Vault of Midnight want to make sure that everyone knows the story of the Nain Rouge so we can band together and defeat him. Join us on October 7th for a book signing with author Josef Bastian and artist Patrick McEvoy at Vault of Midnight Detroit from 7-9 pm. We'll have copies of "Nain Rouge: The Red Legend" to have signed, and the party will continue at The Queens Bar immediately following the signing. Help us tell the tale of the Nain Rouge, and meet these creators, but be careful: you never know when the Nain Rouge will strike again!

Pokémon Trainers Actually Needed:

Vault of Midnight is completely overrun with Pokémon. This sounds like it would be cute and funny, but it's serious. Have you ever found a Snorlax napping in your bathroom? It is not cool, it is very invasive. 

Thus, we would like to offer a 10% discount to any trainers who come visit our shop on Sunday, July 17th from 1:00-3:00p. So we know that you are the real deal (and not a member of Team Rocket) please wear a shirt that corresponds with your Poké team. Represent Team Instinct (yellow), Mystic (blue), or Valor (red) and come mingle with your fellow trainers. See that picture above? Just like those dudes.

And if you happen to be around at 2:00p, we'll be taking a big picture of every trainer we can find, both for the memories and also to display openly as a warning to these horrible monsters.
