Maverick’s Heading to ALA Annual!

Kicking off this Summer with a bang! We are thrilled to announce that Mad Cave Studios’ young adult imprint, Maverick, will be attending ALA Annual 2022 in Washington D.C. from June 23rd to June 28th!

Here at Maverick, we believe in creating genuine stories that young adult readers can connect with. Through these tales, we hope our readers will find themselves in the pages. From slice-of-life, to horror, to sci-fi, we’re proud to present titles that cover a wide range of genres and spotlight work from a diverse array of creators.

This year, our booth will be fully stocked with your favorite Maverick titles, bookmarks, stickers, mugs, and even cookies! (Because who doesn’t love curling up with a warm cuppa and a good book!)

Be sure to stop by Booth #3734 and say hello!

2022 is shaping up to be a big year for Maverick. With the success of our first two titles, Maverick is excited to be bringing you fresh new stories keeping the tradition of staying true to one’s self and overcoming all odds. Here’s a peek at some new titles, coming soon!

We dedicate these tales to those who think differently. To those who find freedom in the unexpected. To those fighting for who they truly are. To those who are not afraid to be independent.

In the Shadow of the Throne, by Kate Sheridan (Flash Gordon, Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake) and artist Gaia Cardinali (Disney Mulan’s Adventure Journal: The Palace of Secrets), is an epic fantasy adventure following Jordan and Prince Astel as they unlock their inner strengths, face hidden truths, and ultimately, learn to trust each other. With the fate of Lymeria at stake, will they be able to save the kingdom?

ALA Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with Maverick’s new Director of Sales, Kurt Nelson! To schedule a meeting with Kurt, please reach out to him directly at

“Originally from Minnesota, I have called Southern California home for many years. For the past 8 years I have worked for IDW Publishing as a sales and foreign licensing manager. I was excited to join Mad Cave Studios because I see a real passion from everyone involved to grow and succeed. I look forward to being a part of this success and connecting with the community!”
