Mad Cave Studios has announced two new titles coming our way in September, and we have the solicitation information and cover images, after the jump.
What if four children were abducted by a UFO and implanted with stolen technology capable of destroying an ancient alien race? What if twenty years later those same aliens want what was taken from them? Find out in Mad Cave’s intergalactic new series: Stargazer.
“I truly enjoyed crafting the personal stakes for each character in comparison to the massive cosmic conflict going on above their heads, said Anthony Cleveland. “What comes from that is an emotional story that I can’t wait to see readers respond to.”
“Anthony does an amazing job blending the feel of a vintage blockbuster with all of the impact of a modern-day sci-fi thriller,” said Antonio Fuso. “You’ll love this book as much as I love working on it.”
Diego Gomez is tired of the drugs and violence that surround him. He wants nothing more than to escape west and leave the neon lights of 1980s Miami behind him. With the help of three friends, Diego hatches a plan to rob the most dangerous gang in the city, Los Marielitos. Filled with Latin-American influences, Dry Foot is a coming-of age-tale that deals with family, friendship, trust, and adversity. Many would kill to live in the Magic City. Others would die to leave it behind.
“Dry Foot was a uniquely emotional experience for me,” said writer Jared Lujan. “A lot of me, and my own group of teenage troublemaker friends, made its way into the script. I’m very proud of this book, of the incredible art team that brought it to life, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
“I’ve been having a blast working on Dry Foot!” added artist Orlando Caicedo. “It’s been a joy and an honor to be able to depict Latin characters and culture on the comic page, not to mention the fun I’m having getting to draw a story set in the 1980s. Plus, we have a great team working on the book and everyone is bringing their A-game which shows in the finished product. Can’t wait to share this story with the world.”
