Exclusive Cover Reveal: Cave Pictures Publishing’s Appalachian Apocalypse #1

At New York Comic Con, Cave Pictures Publishing announced their line up of “spiritually inclined” comics. The publisher looks to be filling a gap and deliver entertainment for a segment that comics hasn’t focused on unlike the film industry which has found success in movies of that nature.

We’ve got a reveal of the cover to Appalachian Apocalypse #1, one of the comics announced. Written by Billy Tucci with art by Ethan Nicolle, the comic is out January 16, 2019 and will retail for $3.99.

After the ancient staff of Lilith, mother of the damned, reanimates the dead, country boy J.B. and his estranged upper-crust wife Anne must come together to stop the zombie hordes and save the people of Appalachia.

The series is described as a “hilarious zombie romp like you’ve never seen before!”

Describing the series Ethan Nicolle said:

Appalachian Apocalypse sort of has a “Dukes of Hazard in a zombie Apocalypse” feel to it. It’s unapologetically American. I enjoy drawing zombies and this has got me drawing tons of them. It’s a very fun, fast-paced zombie adventure with a Tennessee twist.

And when it comes to working with Tucci, Nicolle added:

I’ve been a Billy Tucci fan since the ’90s when I subscribed to Wizard Magazine and he was constantly in the top ten artists in the industry. To be working with him is both thrilling and intimidating as an artist, but luckily he’s possibly the nicest guy in comics.

Tucci is a comic book and graphic novel illustrator and author best known for his creator-owned title and character Shi, now celebrating its 20th anniversary. Tucci penciled Heroes for Hire for Marvel Comics and produced DC Comics’ Sgt. Rock: The Last Battalion.

Nicolle is an American comic book creator, artist, and writer. He is best known for Bearmageddon and Axe Cop, a series he created with his younger brother, Malachai. Axe Cop won top prizes as a web-based comic at both the 2011 Shel Dorf Awards and the 2011 Eagle Awards. Nicolle was also nominated for the Best Humor Publication at the 2009 Eisners.

Cave Pictures Publishing is Launching Comics for the Spiritually Inclined

“Christian” films is big business. With low budgets, they return many factors for their studios making them a very profitable business. While there’s been some attempts to bring that sort of storytelling to comics, no publisher has recreated the marketing that has led to success in films. Cave Pictures Publishing looks to break through and change that.

The publisher revealed a slate of new titles during last week’s New York Comic Con, 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.

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 and artist Ethan Nicolle.

Following series launching each month thereafter include:

The Light Princess, a fairy tale by writer Meredith Finch with art by Renae De Liz & Ray Dillon.

The Blessed Machine, a sci-fi escape thriller by Jesse Hamm and company founder Mark Rodgers with art by Hamm.

The No Ones, action-packed superhero drama by writer Jim Krueger with art by Well-Bee.

Wylde, a supernatural western by Daniel Bradford.

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.

More details on each series will be announced in coming months.
