The Capes and Tights Podcast welcomes Steve Mardo to the show for episode 54. Mardo is a comic book artist and creator from New England.
Mardo is the artist for Black Caravan’s Epic Tavern – Tales From The Fantastical Crime Unit from writer Shawn French with colors by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles legend Steve Lavigne. The one-shot is based off the Epic Tavern video game created by French and Hyperkinetic Studios, available in beta on Steam.
“Angel is a Centaur Foal.” Hard-boiled detective Victor Marshall finds himself partnered with idealistic young necromancer Emilia Mortalis and her crew of undead animal pals to investigate the disappearance of a young centaur in this official adaptation of the video game Epic Tavern. The series follows the adventures of an overworked agency in the fantasy realm of Beor tasked with investigating crimes committed by supernatural and mythological creatures. Hidden within are clues for unlocking bonus content in Epic Tavern, including a new Final Boss battle and the most powerful artifact in the game.
Steve Mardo has also worked on Joseph Schmalke‘s Murder Hobo comic book and more. His work has also been used for the Bangor Comic and Toy Con‘s promotion poster in 2022. Look for more from Mardo coming in 2023 with projects yet-to-be announced. Steve will be at NecronomiCon in Providence, RI from August 18-21, as well as the 2022 Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland from September 16-18.
