JP Roth is an artist, poet and mother of one. She has spent the greater majority of her life immersed in history, legends and fascinating cultures. She loves her son, good books, rhythmic languages, mythology and weaponry.
She has won poetry competitions in three continents and published her thesis. Also loves comic books, cosmetics, clothes and fast cars. ANCIENT DREAMS is an epic tale of blood lust, torment, passion, sacrifice and a love capable of destroying not only the gods themselves, but even the laws of space and time.
Eric Basaldua (known more commonly through his signature – EBAS) began his career at Top Cow Productions in 2000 under the direct tutelage of founder, Marc Silvestri. His early credits include Magdalena, Witchblade/Wolverine, and Tomb Raider.
He has attained notoriety through his works for Zenescope Comics and various cover art for several series within their line. Conducting all hand sketches using gray tones, Basaldua’s unique shading and anatomical display have become very recognizable. His sketch art and commissions have become more pronounced as he extends his professional footprint.
