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.

Review: Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special #1

ww75as_cv1_dsWhen it comes to Wonder Woman, it never surprises me, that although her stature in the comics world is as immense as it is, that she has never had a solo movie until next year. This character who, has inspired women of all ages for decades, and has even been on Ms. Magazine, never truly has gotten her due. Her life in the comics world, is as just as big as her contemporaries, Batman and Superman. Her backstory is also just as interesting, if not more, as she ascends from royalty, revealing a long extenuating misogyny within the fandom.

Surprisingly, most people still don’t know that she was created by a doctor, who researched bondage and other depravities, but also sought to understand the human condition. Wonder Woman, is the perfect example of the human experience, as she does take the hero’s journey, becoming a stronger character by leaving her home. Since her inception, her character has grown with society, as she initially followed tropes but eventually came to challenge each one. She even challenges the trope of relationships, where she takes the more dominant roles in her relationships with Batman and Superman.

In the Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special, several writers and artists collaborate to create stories in which makes us all look at Diana different. “Big Things One Day Come” has Diana and a new superhero by the name of Star Blossom take on a kryptonite powered gorilla, which is both funny and action packed. “Gives Us Strength” follows Diana as she fights some Nazis and actually helps liberate France during World War II. The last piece that stands out is the interview Lois Lane does with Wonder Woman, which answers some questions, but brings up even more.

Altogether, this special is more a love letter to this character which has inspired millions and continues to every day. The writers all bring their love to the story. The artist more so as they see her in each, a different light. Overall, a fun tribute to an icon.

Review: The Legend of Wonder Woman #1

The Legend of Wonder Woman #1A new Wonder Woman 9-issue miniseries begins here with a story written and penciled by Renae De Liz! In the beginning there was only chaos. But Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, saw a better future—and eventually, her daughter would be destined to bring that new world to life! Before her ultimate fate unfolds, though, Diana of Themyscira must learn the important lessons of an Amazonian childhood!

Much like Superman: American Alien, The Legend of Wonder Woman is going back to basics, taking on Wonder Woman as a kid and really examining her birth, education, training, and discovery of her role in the world.

Writer Renae De Liz really explores the world of the Amazonians taking us through their history. I’m sure there’s enough to not keep everyone happy. There’s emphasis that Hippolyta didn’t feel complete without a child. That has some implications, and we can debate about it. But, some do feel that way, and as I age, I’ll admit as a guy I’m even prone to that a little. So, I went back and forth on that, but I’m sure it’ll turn off some.

The comic though is fantastic, treating Diana as a miracle, an heir to a throne, and also lonely and not confident on her role in her society. What I also liked is De Liz’s emphasis on that society, which takes up about half the comic and goes through a lot of history. As someone who hasn’t read a lot of Wonder Woman, it’s a of new to me, and I like how it was all laid out. Just solid overall.

De Liz does double duty and gives us some beautiful, and creepy art too. There’s a fantastic design, and I liked the small details included. Some look like warriors, those who aren’t into the warrior aspect as much are slightly less muscular. It’s great to see.

This is the Wonder Woman we need. This is the Wonder Woman we deserve. This is the Wonder Woman I’ve wanted for so long. Yes please, more of this. The Legend of Wonder Woman is an absolutely buy and comic you should be supporting in hopes we get more.
