Mark London, CEO & Chief Creative Officer, Mad Cave Studios, A DotCom Magazine Interview
The DotCom Magazine Entrepreneur Spotlight Series
About Mark London and Mad Cave Studios: I grew up addicted to movies and comic books. If you want to talk about, fantasy, storytelling, Conan, Transformers, GI Joe, or Japanese Animation, I’m your man. Perhaps it’s the filmography of Jean Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or Sylvester Stallone. As a kid, I loved it. As an adult, I still love it. I’ve channeled that passion into my independent comic book publishing company, Mad Cave Studios, which I established in 2014. From the beginning of our studio’s inception, I’ve reached for nothing short of the best in terms of artwork, storylines, and team members. That level of quality has shown in what we’ve produced and in the things we’ve achieved the last three years. We’ve exhibited at Wizard World’s Chicago Convention (2016), New York Comic Con (2016, 2017), WonderCon Anaheim (2017), and Megacon Orlando (2017). Our medieval fantasy comic, Battlecats, will be distributed by Diamond Comic Distributors and was featured in their December 2017 edition of Previews World. Now we are working simultaneously on six comic book series as we release Battlecats, Midnight, and Knights of the Golden Sun throughout 2018. We have big plans for Mad Cave Studios in 2018 and beyond. Learn more about what we’re doing by visiting madcavestudios.com or clicking on the links below. Established in 2014, Mad Cave Studios is an independent comic book publisher from Miami, Florida driven by madness and committed to creating the most fun and diverse comics on the market. With our roots founded in a medieval fantasy world, every Mad Cave series is incepted by us before it is filtered through the feedback of our readers. We attend multiple conventions each year to talk with our fans and learn what they are excited about. The result is a comic book experience that is second to none, transporting our readers to a world that comes to life with beautiful artwork and a story that carries a hidden, purposeful meaning. Every single person hired by Mad Cave Studios carries a passion for the industry. Our writers, editors, artists, graphic designers, marketers, and PR/Communications professionals are all dedicated to this work.

This week’s guest is Mark London, the CEO and CCO of Mad Cave Studios as well as the writer of Wolvenheart, an upcoming victorian time travel thriller. This was an awesome chat because Mark has a multi-layered perspective of the comic book industry. On one side, he’s a creator and on the other, he’s running a business. I also picked his brain about the Mad Cave talent search where he’s looking for new, up-and-coming writers and artists to work on some of the Mad Cave titles. Wolvenheart is set to debut on October 30th. I’ve gotten a look at the first issue and it’s pretty cool. It’s full of monsters, time travel, and a bit of steam punk. Definitely worth checking out. Mark can be found on Twitter as @MarkLondonMCS. You can learn more about Mad Cave Studios as the official website, MadCaveStudios.com.
