Mad Cave Studios has revealed the Mad Cave Studios Legacy Collection featuring four of their flagship titles: Battlecats, Nottingham, Stargazerand Becstar! Creators Jesse LonerganCully HamnerMarguerite Sauvage, and Shaenon Garrity, have created all new covers for these low-cost special single issues, outside of their own individual arcs, that tell a greater story about the start of everything for Mad Cave. 

Taking risks to truly make a mark in the industry,  Mad Cave Studios marks these four books as different milestones. Battlecats by Mark London was the inaugural comic that was a medieval fantasy comic. Stargazer, the sci-fi adventure written by talent search winner, Anthony Cleveland, gained critical acclaim. Nottingham, also by two talent search winners David Hazan and Shane Connery Volk, was an unexpected and bonafide hit and continues to sell excellently deep into its run. Then came Becstar, the title that gave Mad Cave Studios the confidence to think outside of the box.
