Why is Mad Cave looking for comic book writers?
Yes, it’s true Mad Cave Studios is looking for comic book writers and the reason why is because we value untapped talent and unbridled creativity that maybe isn’t getting the attention it deserves. We understand how difficult it is to break into comics as a writer. It can be extremely difficult to find an artist you feel comfortable with and it can also get very expensive to pay said artist. That’s why Mad Cave Studios is trying to make the process simpler by uniting writers and artists to work on 4 unannounced project from inside the cave. Mad Cave Studios’ goals with this talent search are to nurture growth within the industry we love and to give a voice to aspiring writers so we can ensure the future of comics books as a medium.

Well, it’s actually very simple. Mad Cave Studios was created for the sole purpose of telling the stories we want to read and that we feel are lacking in the comic book industry. The ideal candidate for a potential Mad Cave Studios comic book writer would be someone who shares the same passion and reverence that we do for telling exciting stories, building fully realized worlds, diving deep into a character’s psyche, and keeping the audience guessing through riveting narrative twists.
