Buck Around And Find Out! Deer Editor Is Now Available In Trade Paperback!

Our newest antler-noir miniseries, Deer Editor, written by Ryan K Lindsay, with illustrations by Sami Kivela, colors by Lauren Affe, and letters by Jim Campbell, is now available at your local comic shop and book store in trade paperback format!

“Deer Editor is the story that has always lived rent-free in my heart,” said author Ryan K Lindsay, “When Sami and I created Bucky, we knew we’d be with him for life. Telling his initial story has been fun and personal and a place of growth for us both. To now bring him to Mad Cave feels like the perfect next step to amplify this fun, personal nature, and our growth as storytellers. We cannot wait to share Bucky with the world as a release with colour for the very first time, we hope people dig this antler noir tale of journalism and dark truths, and we look forward to working with Mad Cave to give the iconic editor his 12-point place in the spotlight.”
