Simon Bisley is a British comic book artist best known for his 1990s work on ABC WarriorsLobo, and Slaine. His style, reliant on paints as well as inks, was strongly influenced by Frank Frazetta and Bill Sienkiewicz, and took inspiration from rock album covers and graffiti, as well as traditional comics art. While still a student, Bisley did a painting of a robot holding a baby that a friend passed to Pat Mills, and inspired Mills to relaunch the ABC Warriors strip in 2000AD, with Bisley as artist, in 1987. Other noteworthy contributions include regular contributions to Heavy Metal, and he has recently done covers for Factory from Titan Comics, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Bodycount from IDW Publishing, and Harley’s Little Black Book from DC Comics.

June Brigman has been drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil. She studied art at the University of Georgia, but her illustrations are based on a lifetime of sketching.

She currently teaches part time in the Sequential Art Department of the Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta branch. June received the San Diego Comic-Con Ink Pot Award in 2014.

He is currently working on a follow up project.
