Humans have always tried to make sense of their world through stories. We tell each other myths, parables, and poems to interpret our lives and reveal the order and meaning that we only see in hints and shadows out of the corner of our eyes. The earliest evidence of our collective myth making can be found on the cave walls of Lascaux and El Castillo. We pursued our quest for meaning through pigment and paint long before we could communicate through words and in writing. Whether oral or written, however, questions that could not, and cannot be answered by reason alone have always been explored through myth-making.
Cave Pictures Publishing is a wall for modern myth-telling. We produce content that is excellently crafted, deeply questioning, and spiritually meaningful. Our projects include wholly original works by acclaimed artists in the comics industry as well as original adaptations of existing public domain and copyrighted works. We tell stories through different genres like fantasy, supernatural fiction, historic fiction, and science fiction.
Our name is also inspired by Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, in which a man who initially only sees reality cast in ill-defined shadows on a cave wall is freed and moves upward and onward toward the source of all goodness and truth. We believe that this journey is universal and fundamentally spiritual, that the one who seeks, finds.
Cave Pictures is committed to creating stories that seek to make sense of our world, that draw us toward the source of goodness, and that uncover what we worship, because as David Foster Wallace wrote,"Everybody worships. The only choice we get is what to worship."
