Mad Cave is looking for three writers and three artists to take part in Mad Cave’s first horror anthology. This search is specifically for diverse, undiscovered talent with a unique voice that has never worked with or been distributed by a major publisher.
By running this talent search we are hoping to give aspiring creators the opportunity that many people can only dream of; working on a published comic book!
Each submission should be based on one of Mad Cave comics: Battlecats, Honor and Curse, Knights of the Golden Sun, Show’s End, etc… Each creator can send one submission, but keep in mind that the project you could potentially be working on may or may not be set in the same universe as your submission.
*Note: To any artist who chooses to submit an entry for only Battlecats; any series that you may potentially be working on may or may not feature anthropomorphic creatures.
The contest begins on June 1st, 2020, and runs through September 1st, 2020. Each entry will be considered by each member of the editorial team at Mad Cave Studios and the six winners (three writers and three artists) will be announced on Saturday, October 3rd, 2020, on our Showcase and on PREVIEWSworld and PREVIEWSworld Weekly. If you are not selected this year, don’t worry, we will be running this talent search again next year. So put your nose to the grindstone and hone your craft!
Please follow the submission guidelines below. Only submissions that meet each one of the guidelines will be reviewed
1) Each creator may submit one entry.
