Meet the CreatorS!

“When Jeannine brought me the germ of an idea–an old lady aging backwards while living in elderly housing–I knew that the project that would eventually come from it would be something special, and that it would need a special home. We continued to work on the idea which would eventually become Soul Taker, hoping that we would find a publisher that understood the kind of story we were trying to
tell, and luckily we did with Mad Cave Studios. Jeannine and I are incredibly excited for everybody to experience the unique characters we have created, and the world in which they live.”
-Author, Tom Sniegoski

“I’m crazy excited to be working with Mad Cave Studios on Soul Taker, my first creator-owned comic series! It seems like forever ago that the character of Amara was born from an innocent conversation between Tom and me about our elderly
moms. And now, four years later, Amara’s story is here, about to be unleashed on the world. I’m so grateful that Mad Cave decided to take a chance on us, and I can’t wait for everyone to meet Amara and the other colorful characters who inhabit her world. A huge thank you is due to the folks at Mad Cave for assembling such a terrific team of professionals to work with us — they all helped bring our story to life, just the way we imagined it.”

-Author, Jeannine Acheson

“When I first read the plot for Soul Taker, I was thrilled. Soul Taker is a horror story with a romantic and gothic aspect, it has a nostalgic flavor coming from most of its characters.
The story is divided between flashbacks dating back between the Renaissance and 1700, the Age of Enlightenment, up to the present day. Amara, the protagonist, has an incredible charm both for her aesthetics and for her story.I am really happy that Mad Cave presented me the task of bringing this special story to images because for me, every chapter is a real journey into a fantastic world.”
-Illustrator, Valeria Burzo
