Meanwhile, back at the cave

With New York Comic Con coming up quickly, publisher Mad Cave has revealed its full list of happenings. If that name sounds a little extra familiar, it might be because we just told you about the company’s new Dick Tracy series that’ll be along in 2024.

Mad Cave isn’t just about crime comics however, and will its full catalog of hits on display at the Con. Fans will be able to take home some unique prints and variant editions, and can of course expect signings and a few key panels to boot.
