Brent WachterColorist
Before David pulled Brent back into the comic book world, comics were a nice thing to pick up at the drug store, say 30-some odd years ago. Since then he has been moving around, picking up a degree in architecture from Miami University of Ohio and a Masters in scenic design from Boston University. Brent participates in the creation of scenery for theatre, museums, industry, and for others that have a need for someone to make something look like something else.

Steph St. LaurentLetterer
Steph has been lettering for the past couple of years but has been conspiring for a much longer amount of time to ursurp Jim’s place as master sequential wordsmith. With projects like IMPH (Heavy Metal) and Blammo the Space Monkey (Digital Webbing Presents) under his belt, how could he not?
