James Andrew Clark – Writer
Jim got his start writing fiction and poetry for various literary magazines, but Scar Tissue marked his debut into the world of writing comic books. Jim has also written numerous short stories appearing in such comic books as Hope: The Tsunami Relief Anthology, Memories & Echoes, Leesway, Havoc 21, Somnia: Daydreams and Nightscapes, Pantheon, Varied Scaries, and The Hunger. In 2009, Clark and his Scar Tissue partner David Wachter created the weekly webcomic The Guns of Shadow Valley, a western/sci-fi serial adventure. In 2010, The Guns of Shadow Valley was nominated for the Eisner Award for “Best Digital Comic”. In addition to writing comics Jim also creates music and maintains a mostly neglected blog. He resides in Santa Barbara with his wife and two children.
Dave Wachter – Illustrator

In 2009, Wachter and his Scar Tissue partner Jim Clark created the weekly webcomic The Guns of Shadow Valley, a western/sci-fi serial adventure. In 2010, The Guns of Shadow Valley was nominated for the Eisner Award for “Best Digital Comic”.

Brent Wachter – Colorist
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. Laurent – Letterer
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?
