Cave Pictures Publishing launches “comics for the spiritually inclined”

Revealing a slate of new titles during New York Comic Con, publishing venture Cave Pictures Publishing has entered the indie comics world with a new vision for modern myth-telling. Founded by entertainment executive Mark Rodgers of the cause marketing and creative production firm More Partnerships, Cave Pictures Publishing’s line of spiritually inclined comics debuts in comic shops this January.

“Since humans have always sought to make sense of their lives, hopes, dreams, and fears through stories, Cave Pictures is committed to exploring questions that cannot be answered by reason alone through narrative,” said CPP President Mandi Hart.

The new line of comics mini-series features work from some of the industry’s brightest lights, crafting top-quality and spiritually meaningful stories.

The first title, the horror comedy APPALACHIAN APOCALYPSE, launches in January from writer Billy Tucci (Shi, Heroes for Hire) and artist Ethan Nicolle (Axe Cop).

Following series launching each month thereafter include:

THE LIGHT PRINCESS, a fairy tale by writer Meredith Finch (ROSE, Catwoman) with art by Renae De Liz & Ray Dillon (The Legend of Wonder Woman).

THE BLESSED MACHINE, a sci-fi escape thriller by Jesse Hamm (Batman, Flash Gordon) and company founder Mark Rodgers with art by Hamm.

THE NO ONES, action-packed superhero drama by writer Jim Krueger (Absolute Justice, Earth X) with art by Well-Bee (Entropy).

WYLDE, a supernatural western by Daniel Bradford (Robot 13).

Cave Pictures draws its mission and vision from Plato’s allegory of the cave; that what we see with our eyes is often a shadow of greater reality.

“All our stories, regardless of genre, are meant to serve as guides along the journey of human experience,” said Rodgers, CPP’s publisher.

“We are living in an age of deep questioning, deep reflection on what it means to be human and how we are to coexist in a complex and ever-shrinking world,” added Hart.

“Cave contributes to this conversation by cultivating stories that engage mind, heart, and spirit and provide fodder for personal meditation as well as conversation with others.”
