Echo Lake Entertainment has signed the independent comic book and graphic novel publisher Mad Cave. Under the deal, the management and production company will represent Mad Cave’s catalog of IP for film/TV adaptation, including the library of titles under Mad Cave’s new and inclusive Young Adult imprint, Maverick.
Currently, Mad Cave is having great success with their new comic book series Nottingham. In this twisted medieval noir, the Sheriff of Nottingham hunts a serial killer with a penchant for tax collectors. The Sheriff’s investigation makes him the target of England’s most nefarious power-brokers. That’s to say, nothing of the Merry Men, terrorists lurking amongst the trees of Sherwood, led by an enigma known only as “Hood.” The series is heading into its third printing after selling out of the initial two runs.
“With a deep bench of high-quality stories across many genres, Mark and the team at Mad Cave have put together an impressive organization,” said Echo Lake Entertainment’s Mike Marcus. “We are excited to represent them as they create great material for years to come, and we look forward to helping them bring these stories to life in film and TV.”
“For Mad Cave, it’s an honor to be collaborating with Echo Lake Entertainment,” said Mad Cave CEO/COO Mark London. “Now, our diverse portfolio of over 30 properties will have an experienced and knowledgeable team to support and drive their growth into television, film, and animation. Thanks to the increase in streaming platforms and the world’s insatiable desire for entertainment, we
can think of no better partner than Echo Lake to help Mad Cave properties transcend into new forms of media.”
