Cully Hamner, Shaenon Garrity, Marguerite Sauvage and Jesse Lonergan Bring New Life to Four of Mad Cave Studios’ Legacy Titles

Prepare to descend into madness, with our MCS Legacy Collection featuring four flagship titles: Battlecats, Nottingham, Stargazer, and Becstar!

Creators Jesse Lonergan (Hedra, Paradise Planet), Cully Hamner (DC Bombshells, Archie), Marguerite Sauvage (Spiderman, Wonder Woman) and Shaenon Garrity (The Dire Days of Willoweep Manor), have created all new covers for these low-cost special single issues, outside of their own individual arcs, that tell a greater story about the start of everything for Mad Cave.

We believe in creating stories that transport readers into worlds full of the extraordinary, the epic, and the MAD! Outside of their own individual arcs, these four titles tell a greater story about Mad Cave Studios.

Battlecats by Mark London was the inaugural comic that was a medieval fantasy comic. Stargazer, the sci-fi adventure written by talent search winner, Anthony Cleveland, gained critical acclaim. Nottingham, also by two talent search winners David Hazan and Shane Connery Volk, was an unexpected and bonafide hit and continues to sell excellently deep into its run. Then came Becstar, the title that gave Mad Cave Studios the confidence to think outside of the box.

“There’s nothing like discovering your next new favorite series.” Mark Irwin, VP of Business Development says, “With MCS Legacy, we’re presenting to new readers a chance to discover and descend into Mad Cave’s madness with #1s from our different flagship series, while also giving our day one Mad Cave fans something special to add to their collection.”

With an impressive lineup including Nottingham, Battlecats, Stargazer, and Becstar, now is the perfect time for you to dive into one (or all!) of these series– with each issue at a special, low price of $2.99. Check out the details below!
