Keith Davidsen joins Mad Cave Studios!

AUG. 16, 2023, (PITTSBURGH, PA) — Keith Davidsen has joined Mad Cave Studios as the new Director of Marketing!

Keith Davidsen will partner with Allison Marie Pond to oversee all marketing efforts for Mad Cave. While Pond will handle book market and brand management with a focus on the Papercutz and Maverick imprints, Davidsen’s efforts will highlight the core Mad Cave line with a special emphasis on the comic book direct market.

A comic book industry veteran of 23 years, Keith Davidsen has rolled up his sleeves and gotten to work in virtually every aspect of the business — marketing, sales, editorial, design, events planning, journalism, inventory management, and more. He worked director-level positions at IDW Publishing, Dynamite Entertainment, and Avatar Press, and served as a brand manager at Diamond Comic Distributors. He is a familiar and friendly face to creators, journalists, and retailers, and has had writing credits on such titles as Godzilla, Evil Ernie, Reanimator, Pink Panther, and Poison Elves.

“Mad Cave Studios has a sterling reputation for creativity, quality, and professionalism — and what it comes down to, I think, is that Mad Cave cares,” said Keith Davidsen. “They care about storytelling, and they care about the creators. They care about doing right by their partners, staff, and — most importantly — customers. We should all be so lucky to be part of an organization that cares so much! I’m proud to join the team, especially right at this moment when they have so many mind-blowing projects on the schedule!”

“Thrilled to join forces with Keith Davidsen as he brings his many years of comic industry insight and kindred spirit to Mad Cave Studios,” said Allison Marie Pond. “Together, we’ll chart new heights in creativity and innovation in storytelling.”
