You’ve Been Cancelled: Mad Cave Bringing New Dystopian Series Where Cancel Culture Has Deadly Consequences
Mad Cave Studios has announced an upcoming dystopian limited series in which cancel culture has deadly consequences. You’ve Been Cancelled will introduce readers to a world where getting canceled may mean more than repercussions in your life, it could mean the END of your life! The comic series comes from writer and producer Curt Pires with art by Kevin Castanjero, colors by Jason Wordie, and letters by Micah Myers.
Mad Cave‘s description of You’ve Been Cancelled reads:
“In the near future, cancel culture means more than just losing your job… it could mean your life. The world’s premier entertainment event is CANCELLED – a live-streamed program where elite bounty hunters called cancellers kill individuals who society has voted to “cancel” following heinous actions or offenses. Our story follows Roland Endo, the world’s #1 ranked Canceller. Because of this status, Roland lives in a constant state of paranoia with a target on his back…”
Pires shared their excitement about bringing the series to life alongside the creative team, saying:
“I’m ecstatic to be bringing You’ve Been Cancelled to life with Kevin, Jason, Micah and our publishing partners at Mad Cave. This is a book that has hilarity, satire and good old-fashioned ultraviolence in equal measure. Not to mention mind-blowingly beautiful artwork.”
“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. 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.”
Lastly, Wordie chimed in, saying:
“It’s great to be working with Curt and Kevin. I had a blast coloring this book. The writing is great and the artwork is full of energy and detail.”
You’ve Been Cancelled #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop in June 2023 with a variant cover by artist Martin Simmonds.
