Mad Cave Studios is looking for four writers and four artists to take part in the upcoming anthology based on the Mad Cave comic book; Wolvenheart. We are specifically searching for diverse, undiscovered talent with a fresh and unique voice that hasn’t had any work published by a major comic book 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!

This year, each submission should be based on the Mad Cave comic book; Wolvenheart. Only one submission will be accepted per person. If you send in more than one submission, only the first submission will be accepted. The contest begins on July 10th, 2021, and runs through September 1st, 2021. Each entry will be considered by each member of the editorial team at Mad Cave Studios and the eight winners (four writers and four artists) will be announced at the Mad Cave 4.0 Showcase October 2021.

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!
