Cancel culture gets deadly in the new miniseries from Mad Cave Studios.
Mad Cave Studios has announce a new dystopian action/satire miniseries, You’ve Been Cancelled, by Youth writer Curt Pires, Grit artist Kevin Castaniero, Rogues colorist Jason Wordie and It’s Only Teenage Wasteland letterer Micah Myers.
“I’m ecstatic to be bringing You’ve Been Cancelled to life with Kevin, Jason, Micah and our publishing partners at Mad Cave,” Pires said. “This is a book that has hilarity, satire and good old fashioned ultraviolence in equal measure. Not to mention mind-blowingly beautiful artwork.”
The new series combines cancel culture with a The Running Man-style show called Cancelled, where bounty hunters attempt to hunt and kill people who have been cancelled by society.
“I personally can not wait for you guys to read this book. Lots of whiskey, sweat and tears went in on my end, so hopefully it delivers,” Castaniero said. “Hell, based on the team we have working on this, I think it will do that and more!!! Hopefully you have as much fun reading the book as I did illustrating it!!! Cheers.”

The creators of ‘Oblivion Song’ will bring a new shared universe to Skybound starting in June.
The Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman will team with his Oblivion Song collaborator Lorenzo De Felici for a new series, Void Rivals, that kicks off in June — and also kicks off a new shared universe. They’ll be joined on the new series by colorist Matheus Lopes.
“With every project I do, I’m always trying to challenge myself. One thing I’ve always loved doing is starting small with a story and expanding the depth, scope and stakes as we progress,” Kirkman said. “With Void Rivals we’ll be going bigger than I ever have and at a much faster pace. This project is going to be monumental. I can’t wait for people to see what Lorenzo and I have cooking.”
