“When Mad Cave came to me with the idea of two characters that meet and express themselves through cosplay, I initially wasn’t sure how we’d be able to pull out a compelling story that would last the course of a graphic novel. But after really diving into the characters and pulling back the curtain on all their wants and needs, it was clear just how deep and rich this story was going to be. There was a ton of ideas and concepts to play with and build upon to make the story as compelling and relatable as we wanted.”- Writer, David Pinckney
“Needle & Thread has been my introduction into the world of professionally published comics. It's the first time I am working together with others on comics and it made me both nervous and incredibly excited. It's been an amazing experience, especially as I relate and empathize a lot with the main characters' struggles. I wouldn't trade the last few months for the world!” - Artist, Ennun Ana Iurov
