Some legends are forged in blood.
Coming in May 2023 is the newest fantasy horror series from Mad Cave Studios’ 2020 Talent Search winner and celebrated writer, David Hazan (NOTTINGHAM), Monomyth!
A story about the darkest side of stories, Monomyth shows the insidious ways the best stories use, twist, and affect their characters, and the dangers of getting stuck telling the same tired tales.
Writer: David Hazan – Artist: Cecilia Lo Valvo – Letterer: Lucas Gattoni
Synopsis: Magic is all but extinct. When the last ailing wizard casts a final desperate spell to summon the descendants of ancient bloodlines to a school for magic now in disrepair…those chosen ones find a horror of the likes they’ve never experienced. They will have to confront the deepest parts of themselves, their tragic pasts and defeat each other in order to survive the ordeal.

“Monomyth has been a wonderful opportunity to explore both the magic of storytelling as well as to plumb its darkest recesses…because maybe it’s just me, but if I ever got a letter inviting me to a school for magic, I’d tear it the hell up! And Cecilia and Marissa together have done such a wonderful job of illustrating that juxtaposition between wonder and terror as our cast discover that magic is both everything and nothing like what they imagined. Lucas’ innovative letters only intensify the mystery and terror in a world where magic is stories…”
-Writer, David Hazan
“David is one of my favorite collaborators and an amazing up-and-coming writer, so when I got called to work on a dark magic book with him I didn’t have to think twice about it! Cecilia and Marissa are killing it in art and colors so I hope I can bring my A-game lettering to it as well. Can´t wait for everyone to check this one out!”
-Letterer, Lucas Gattoni
Monomyth #1 is currently available for pre-order on the Mad Cave Studios website, and will be available at your favorite local comic shop or digital comic reader on May 3rd, 2023!
