SOME WORLDS ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN.
From #1 New York Times bestselling, Hugo Award-winning author, Brandon Sanderson (THE MISTBORN TRILOGY, THE STORMLIGHT ARCHIVE series), along with Nathan Gooden, Jackson Lanzing, and Collin Kelly, comes DARK ONE, the first book in a series of original graphic novels from Vault Comics.
Paul Tanasin is a young man haunted by visions of a dark and fantastic world—visions he initially believes are hallucinations. But when he discovers they are prophecies from Mirandus, a world in which he's destined to become a fearsome destroyer, he'll have to embrace the fear, rise up as the Dark One, and shatter everything. DARK ONE examines the dual roles we often take on in life-the ability to be a savior as well as a destroyer.
