Today, The Beat is thrilled to announce Mad Cave Studios Showcase 3.0! Hosted by Transmissions From the Cave host Jazzlyn Stone, the Showcase will take place on July 10th, 2021 at 12:00 PM Eastern Time/9:00 AM Pacific Time and will be broadcast live through the Mad Cave Studios Twitch channel.

Incredible Talent

The Showcase will feature plenty of special guests, including Cullen Bunn (Wolverine, Spider-Man: Season One), Liana Kangas (She Said Destroy), and the creators behind the breakout series Nottingham, Shane Connery Volk and David Hazan.

As those who have tuned in to TFTC are already aware, Stone’s interviews are killer, so you’ll want to tune in to catch all the action as it unfolds… but if that’s still not incentivizing enough for you, there will also be giveaways open to anyone in the chat, featuring everything from original drawings to exclusive variants.

Plus, there are promises for news about both Maverick, the Mad Cave Studios YA imprint, as well as on the upcoming horror anthology from the publisher!

Talent Including You?

Mad Cave Showcase 3.0 will also mark the launch of Mad Cave’s fourth annual talent search. The contest will run from July 10th, 2021 through September 1st, 2021, and eight contestants (four writers and four artists) will be announced as winners at Mad Cave Studios 4.0 in October 2021. Submissions must be set in the world of one of Mad Cave’s IPs, including Battlecats, Knights of the Golden Sun, and so forth.

You can visit the Mad Cave Studios website for the comprehensive details, but suffice to say that the contest is the real deal: Volk and Hazan, who are appearing on the Showcase to promote Nottingham, were winners of the 2019 Talent Search!
