About the Author:

Jeremy Saliba is a lover of all things nerdy, and has used that passion to continue creating artwork despite the pleading from family and friends to stop. He has done artwork for various comic publications, has become a licensed artist for the Wheel of Time series, and sells art prints online. He also inflicts his twisted and self absorbed point of view on his students at the Academy of Art. He's a movie fanatic, a book worm and a beer enthusiast. His imaginary friend when he was little was Princess Leia, and he will never say no if you ask him to help you move. He also hates talking in the third person.

Brian Schirmer has written comics and screenplays for most of his adult life, following aborted attempts as a teenager to write Indiana Jones and Star Trek novels. His first attempt at screenwriting was a handwritten adaptation of Marvel's first Micronauts comic series circa 1980. It's in a box somewhere. He is the author of the comic anthology Worlds Apart. He has written, produced, and directed two feature films - Fools of the Game and Medium Gray - the latter of which screened in Park City during the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. No, it wasn't in the festival. Nevertheless, pretty cool. He continues to write and teach Writing for Comics in San Francisco, CA.

Review:

Intriguing.... Richard Healy s dark and bleeding watercolors capture the mood.... Jonathan Aguillon s clear black lines and unnatural color palette are perfect.... Valerio Fabbretti s detailed realism adds an exciting touch of terror.... --io9.com

The strong storytelling is backed by some outstanding artwork.... I was really blown away. --stellarfour.com

Delightful, incredibly beautiful, for anyone interested in traditional Gothic Horror, urban fantasy, alternate history, or just want a refreshing new take on the classic monsters.... There is a great deal of atmosphere and ambiance to the story, which is written with exactly the right amount of suspense, drama and intrigue by Brian Schirmer. --Nosferatu TV
