This Hungry Earth Reddens Under Snowclad Hills.
1899, Yukon Territory. A frozen frontier, bloodied and bruised by the last great Gold Rush. But in the lawless wastes to the North, something whispers in the hindbrains of men, drawing them to a blighted valley, where giant spidertracks mark the snow and impossible guns roar in the night.
To Brokehoof, where gold and blood are mined alike. Now, stumbling towards its haunted forests comes a woman gripped not by greed -- but the snarling rage of a mother in search of her child...

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Oct 27, 2021

    THE RUSH #1, from Vault Comics, is a story of hardship and desperation. It's about people who are stuck in a vicious cycle of poverty, while those who hold the purse strings do nothing to help. This creative team brilliantly ties these events to real life, connecting 1899 to the present day. With a slow and methodical start, this series promises to be a subtle and entrancing horror-show.

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Oct 30, 2021

    The Rush is a book that feels like the first winds of a harsh winter, bringing in a sense of dread and despair to those who experience it. In this first issue, it becomes clear that Spurrier, Gooden, and the team are drafting a tale of bleak horror in a remote landscape with the souls of the characters at risk. Its an excellent set-up to a horror narrative, and feels like a bundle of letters found generations later, to be passed along and remembered in a new light. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Oct 28, 2021

    The Rush definitely has a sellable premise, but its approach doesn't cohesively convey to us why we should understand this revisionist history or care.However, the art does make a strong case for purchasing. Read Full Review
