Mad Cave Studios would like to announce its first ever Mad Cave Comics Talent Search. We are looking for four artists and four writers to work on four original and unannounced comic book projects from the minds inside the Mad Cave. Just like all of our other titles, these unannounced projects will vary greatly between themes, genres, and styles. Each of the potential winners will be chosen for a specific comic book project and will be paid on “per page” basis and employment will considered “work for hire” as long as the title is in production.
How to Break Into Comics
One of the most common questions asked in the comic book industry is “How do I break in to comics?” Well, unfortunately, it’s something that takes time, effort, connections, and little bit of luck. And the latter is where we come in. We feel your pain, which means we also feel strongly about giving back to the comic book industry and providing an opportunity for aspiring creators to break in to comics. Learn what it is like to work for an independent publisher like Mad Cave Studios.
