Bill may be dead, but he’s got a job to do.
Welcome to the Big Wait, where folks who do’t quite make the cut go to work off their debt. Everyone in the Wait’s got a job. Bill is a Heavy, whose job is policing the multiverse, making sure bad eggs get what’s coming to them. He’s on track to earn his Climb and reunite with the woman he loves… until he meets his new partner: the worst dude of all time.
WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING:
“Fresh and intense, Heavy packs two-tons of hard-hitting humor and stands tall
among its peers and predecessors, establishing itself as a must-read series.”
-THE BRAZEN BULL
“A singularly strange journey.”
“Heavy #1 delivers a stylish and action packed
debut that should be on everyones pull list.”
“Vault Comics have been publishing some absolute corkers recently,
and HEAVY #1 is another on a growing list of Must Read comics.”
“Heavy #1 sees Max Bemis & Eryk Donovan imagine a unique version of
Purgatory that feels like The Punisher meets What Dreams May Come.”
“Heavy #1 is an excellent start to this Vault Comics series.”
“It’s way out, it’s wonderful for those who are built for the harsh unrelenting
power of the violence, savagery, and brutal take on hitmen of the future.”
“…A thematically rich and absurdly over the top series…”
-MONKEYS FIGHTING ROBOTS
Heavy is The Punisher for neurotics; Inception for the impatient; Preacher for… well, it’s a lot like Preacher. Max Bemis and Eryk Donovan bring you a story about the existential purpose of dumb boys with big guns.
