JAN. 11, 2024, (PITTSBURGH, PA) — Mad Cave Studios is excited to bring the action/fantasy series collection of CRUSADER, from Matt Emmons (Gardener) and Ukrainian letterer, Andriy Lukin (Lower Your Sights)!
In the midst of the Third Crusade, an exceptionally brutal Templar Knight finds himself accidentally transported to a dangerous realm of magic and monsters.
A nameless Templar Knight from the Third Crusade finds himself magically transported to a mysterious world filled with sorcery and monsters. In order to survive, the ferocious Crusader must reevaluate his penchant for violent righteousness and make peace with both himself and this ruthless world. But will peace be enough to stop the deathless, power-hungry ghoul known only as The Pilgrim?
Praise for CRUSADER
“A bloody good, if not all-too-direct, tale of crusading action.” —AiPT
“Matt Emmons’ writing promises a rich, fantasy world full of intrigue with the evil Masters, but his art sells this book, emphasizing characters with heavy inks and accentuating action scenes with thick drops and splatters of blood.”—CBR
“Emmons finds shining moments to deliver artistic and narrative strikes that land with precision” —Geek Network
Andriy Lukin was a winner in Mad Cave Studios’ Talent Search in 2022, and also specializes in creating logotypes, book design and cover art for comic books, music albums, and tabletop games.
