Neil Gaiman is an incredibly popular and multiple award-winning author of comics, children's books, original graphic novels, nonfiction books and prose novels, radio plays, short stories, television and movie scripts, as well as poetry and sundry other entertainments. After getting his start as a journalist and reviewer in his native England, Gaiman soon turned his attention towards comic books, and it was the DC Comics series Sandman which eventually cemented his reputation as one of the most original creators to have ever worked in that field. Since then, he's gone on to pen a string of New York Times best-selling books, including American Gods and Anansi Boys. Currently, Gaiman resides in the Upper Midwest of the United States, surrounded by family, friends, a library of mystifying proportions and a veritable herd of cats.


Ron Garney was born into an artistic family on October 20, 1962. Ron's creative inclinations surfaced very early, and one of his first memories is of drawing very crude versions of Superman, Batman and other superheroes for his grandmother. He continued to actively pursue drawing, as well as music and sports, throughout his high school and collegiate years.

Ron's interest in comics had waned during the course of his teens and early adulthood, but one night he was reintroduced to the medium by a friend. Intrigued, he sought out more comics on his own, and shortly after that he began preparing for a career in the industry. His efforts paid off and he soon had his first assignment, drawing an issue of G. I. Joe for Marvel Comics.

Over the course of the past two decades, Ron has drawn an astounding amount of comics. He's delineated the adventures of characters as diverse as Batman, Captain America, Ghost Rider, Green Arrow, the Hulk, Moon Knight, Morbius the Vampire, Nightstalkers, the Punisher, the Silver Surfer, Spider-Man, Superman, Wolverine, Wonder Woman and the X-Men. More recently, he was instrumental in the successful launch of the monthly Skaar, Son of Hulk comics for Marvel and contributed costume designs to I Am Legend, a film starring Will Smith.

When he's not working, this life-long resident of Connecticut and devoted father enjoys spending time with his wife, two children and family dog. And while he doesn't have the time to play out at this point, he still does write and play music for his own enjoyment, and looks forward to the day when he can again perform for the public.

Currently, Ron is contributing costume designs for a live action version of The Sorcerer's Apprentice, which has Nicholas Cage attached to it. He's also drawing the first issues of Wolverine: Weapon X, another new monthly title from Marvel Comics that will launch in 2009. And, as if that's not enough to keep any one man busy, Ron has another big project that will come to fruition in '09: another addition to his burgeoning family, with the birth of their third child.


Alan Moore is an award winning author of comics and short stories, prose and graphic novels, plays and other entertainments. He is also one of the most celebrated and influential creators to have ever worked in the comics industry. He's written any number of highly acclaimed graphic novels over the course of his quarter century career, including From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Promethea and, most recently, the epic erotic masterpiece, Lost Girls. He first came to prominence in the 1980s with his work on, among other titles, a revival of the British comic character Marvelman (published as Miracleman in the US). This notice lead to his being offered work by various mainstream and independent American comic companies. Moore made the most of this opportunity by scripting a now-legendary run of revolutionary stories featuring DC Comics icons like Batman, Superman and the Swamp Thing, as well as a string of original extended tales, including V for Vendetta and Watchmen, books that are now widely recognized as seminal masterpieces of the medium and important cornerstones of the modern graphic novel market.

Alan Moore resides in his native England, surrounded by books, friends and family members. Presently, Alan is working on Jerusalem, his second prose novel, and eagerly awaiting the day when his fiancée, the gifted comic artist, illustrator and painter Melinda Gebbie, makes an honest man of him.


Michael Avon Oeming broke into comics at the age of 14, working as an inker for Marvel Comics, and very soon he found himself penciling Judge Dredd for DC Comics. After that, he completely reinvented his style and approach to making art, resulting in his involvement in a variety of creator-owned properties, including the critically acclaimed Hammer of the Gods and the award-winning Powers. More recently, in addition to his ongoing duties drawing Powers, he has begun to write scripts for various titles published by Marvel and Dynamite Entertainment, as well as for a variety of new creator-owned projects, including Mice Templar. Currently, Oeming lives in Seattle, Washington State, where he often has way too much fun for his own good while doing what he loves most-creating comics and independent films, and spending time with his wife.


George Pérez first entered the comics industry in 1973 as an art assistant, and quickly graduated to penciling numerous Marvel Comics books, including The Avengers and Fantastic Four. In 1980 he moved to DC Comics, where he co-created The New Teen Titans series with Marv Wolfman after stints drawing Justice League of America and other titles. Next, he and Wolfman teamed for the DC Universe-shattering event, Crisis On Infinite Earths, before supplying both the art and scripts for Wonder Woman in a successful bid to reinvigorate that character. Since then, he's continued to garner praise and an increasing number of fans for his work, whether it's published bearing a DC, Marvel or other company's logo. Today, Pérez remains one of the most beloved and influential creators of his or any other generation. Currently, George Pérez resides in Florida with his lovely wife, where, when he's not working tirelessly on behalf of any number of charities, he continues to strive to create the most beautiful and exciting art humanly possible.
