Villainous

Villainous Mad Cave

The series is from writer Stonie Williams, with art by Jef Sadzinski (Show’s End), colors from Joana Lafuente, and letters by Justin Birch (Knights of the Golden Sun, RV9). Villainous ​follows Tilly, one of the newest super-powered beings to join the Coalition of Heroes through their sidekick program, as she navigates the dizzying world of Super-Heroes. Working with her idols should be a dream come true, but when she learns too much too soon, Tilly’s dream quickly turns into a nightmare. As she learns more about the sordid history of the CoH, Tilly has to make a choice – Get in line and stand with her heroes or take a stand and risk becoming something more… Villainous.

Pantomime

Pantomime Mad Cave

The series is written by Christopher Sebela (Crowded, Shanghai Red), with art by David Stoll (Metaphorical HER), and colors by Dearbhla Kelly (Red Sonja, Queen of Bad Dreams).

Haley and her brother Max are all alone after their mother’s death and a fresh start at Wayfair Academy, a special needs boarding school, isn’t what she expected. Normally, Haley would withdraw back into herself, but when she finds a family with other deaf kids, she embraces her new life and begins to come out of her shell. Until one night where the group dips their toes into crime, and the thrill is too much to leave behind. Though they soon find out by stealing from the wrong person, that this world isn’t for kids. With no one to turn to but each other, they will have to make a choice, one where no one will come out the same on the other side.

Terminal Punks 

Terminal Punks Mad Cave

Terminal Punks is written by Matthew Erman (​Long Lost, Power Rangers, Dark Crystal), with art by ​Shelby Criswell (The Nib), and letters by Micah Myers (Dead Beats)​

Four lousy, grimy and greasy gutter punk teens are en route to their big show in the big apple but when things go monstrously wrong and mutant animals are unleashed in the airport, our four punk heroes must put on their combat boots, fly their Black Flag and try to survive a viral genetic mutant nightmare.

A hilarious, wild, and fun thrill-ride! ​Terminal Punks​ is a blaring colorful love letter to the music and attitude of rebellion. It is also a tongue-in-cheek takedown of rich idiots doing stupid things for bad reasons.
