VAST EXPANSE #2 is an all-genre anthology with the following four stories:
The issue begins with a nod to the gothic suspense paperbacks of the 1960s and 1970s. In A SHADOW IN THE STEEPLE, a shy newcomer to town spies a mysterious figure haunting the tryouts for a community play. Story by Jeremy Scott Nichols with art by Elias Martins and Ray Rieck.
The second story in this issue is set in the twisted forest of an unnamed planet. In FRUIT OF THE BRAIDTREE, an alien tribal healer seeks solace in the woods but finds danger instead. Story by Jeremy Scott Nichols with art by Guillermo Villarreal and Rosa Devine.
Next up, in THE AUDIENCE PERFORMS, people from all walks of life gather at the Janus Theatre to witness a one-night-only performance of a peculiarly avant-garde play. Story by Jeremy Scott Nichols with art by JC Quattordio.
Finally, there’s JODY ASH IS YOUR GAL, an action tale set in the Jazz Age about a tough daredevil-for-hire who attempts to prevent the murder of a young socialite outside Carnegie Hall. Story by Jeremy Scott Nichols with art by Shiloh Penfield.
VAST EXPANSE #2 is a 24-page, black and white comic book with full-color front and back covers.
