Vessels: a dark fantasy comic tribute to RPG gaming
Vessels is the second series from Card Shark Comics. Inspired by the Dark Souls series of videogames and a life-long passion for role-playing games, the series is set during the final days of a dying medieval world. One day the fabric of reality itself collapses, causing the fantasy realm of Cairnthala to smash into the modern world with cataclysmic results.

Things get weird as the slivers of reality merge with distant dimensions, other time periods and even nightmares as the notion of what’s possible becomes warped beyond all recognition. It’s up to three brave warriors led by our hero Wake, the Transcended warrior of light (middle), to halt Cairnthala’s collapse. She must journey through strange lands and confront her deepest traumas to save the realm from annihilation.
But the Vessels have awoken, and they will stop at nothing to protect their new world of chaos and destruction…
