A story about the darkest side of stories… how they use people, twist people and affect people and the dangers of getting stuck telling the same tired tales
Mad Cave Studios is proud to announce Monomyth, the upcoming fantasy/horror series by celebrated writer David Hazan (Nottingham), with art by Cecilia Lo Valvo (Grimm Tales from the Cave); colors by Marissa Louise (Stranger Things) and letters by DC Pride 2022 and GLAAD Award-nominated Lucas Gattoni (Killer Queens). Monomyth is a story about the darkest side of stories...how they use people, twist people and affect people and the dangers of getting stuck telling the same tired tales.
Magic is all but extinct. When the last ailing wizard casts a final desperate spell to summon the descendants of ancient bloodlines to a school for magic now in disrepair...those chosen ones find a horror of the likes they've never experienced. They will have to confront the deepest parts of themselves, their tragic pasts, and defeat each other in order to survive the ordeal.
“Monomyth has been a wonderful opportunity to explore both the magic of storytelling as well as to plumb its darkest recesses...because maybe it's just me, but if I ever got a letter inviting me to a school for magic, I'd tear it up!” said writer David Hazan. “And Cecilia and Marissa together have done such a wonderful job of illustrating that juxtaposition between wonder and terror as our cast discover that magic is both everything and nothing like what they imagined. Lucas' innovative letters only intensify the mystery and terror in a world where magic is stories.” “David is one of my favorite collaborators and an amazing up-and-coming writer, so when I got called to work on a dark magic book with him I didn't have to think twice about it!,” said letterer Lucas Gattoni. “Cecilia and Marissa are killing it in art and colors so I hope I can bring my A-game lettering to it as well. Can´t wait for everyone to check this one out!”
