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.

Jeremy Bastian Signing

  • Vault of Midnight - Ann Arbor

Vault of Midnight is excited to announce that Jeremy Bastian, author and artist of Cursed Pirate Girl, will be doing an in store signing on December 19th.

Meet the local legend behind one of the best reviewed, most beloved comics of the past bunch of years:

“It’s all too rare that I see work that is truly original- and I almost never see work THIS original- Jeremy Bastian is a genius.”
-Mike Mignola

“A throwback to classic storytelling that any age can enjoy.”
-David Petersen

“Clearly he’s kidnapped his own inner child, plied her with enough Victorian sweets to keep her up for days, and then chained her to a drawing board in a tiny room…”
- Jackson Publick

“I LOVE Cursed Pirate Girl- it is a bright light in a vast sea of sameness!”
-Charles Vess

“Authentic and timeless and wonderfully bizarre- this looks like something from 1892 but is totally ahead of its time- I wish I’d thought of it!”
-Gerard Way

“Combines the endearing qualities of classic children’s books with a modern-day sensibility. The results are whimsically naive and genuinely hip!”
-Gary Gianni

“Cursed Pirate Girl is our generation’s Alice in Wonderland.”
-Gail Potocki

Jeremy will be in the shop signing from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.
