T Campbell – Guilded Age
An ex-stage actor and failed Internet shut-in, T Campbell has written eighteen gazintillion pages of comics, won some awards and gotten high-flying writers to praise his work, so if you don’t love this series, it’s probably your own damn fault. He spends his “spare time” designing crosswords, drafting health care bills and seeking the Anti-Life Equation.
Greg Dean - Real Life Comics
Greg Dean has a very hard time focusing. In the past few years, he’s worked as a small plane refueler, a personal assistant, a graphic designer, a web designer, a culinary student, a cook, and of course, a cartoonist. His hobbies range from making chain-mail to writing about himself in the third person. Think of him as a renaissance man, sans renaissance. So, a …man.
Greg has been writing and illustrating his online comic, “Real Life” since late 1999, making it the longest he’s ever paid attention to just one thing. For those who may not have heard of it, (SHAME on you!) Real Life is a semi-autobiographical comic about the author and his friends. What’s meant by semi-autobiographical? Well, it deals with such subjects as going to work or school, road trips to Michigan, and building a giant orbital space station of death. Which is absurd, because Greg’s never even BEEN to Michigan.
Greg graduated from the California Culinary Academy, so in addition to drawifying things, he’s now certified to cookify things as well. A shame they didn’t have an English course at the academy.
Yan “Kern” Gagné and Mary Garren – Drow Tales
Yan is the author and penciler, Mary is the colorist and Lucinda provides sparkly environments for the comic.

Darren J. Gendron – Hello With Cheese Super Art Fight
Darren J. Gendron has a plan. He wants to ride a triceratops in the World Championship of Jousting. The easy part will be genetically cloning dinosaurs back to life. I mean, Samuel L. Jackson once helped people do that. The hard part will be making jousting a relevant sport again.
To that end, he has become the Dern of Dernwerks, a writer, artist and known scallywag. He’s the writer of Hello With Cheese (www.HelloWithCheese.com) and the Dungeons and Dragons comic Alignments (Wizards.com/DnD). He’s the manager of Commissioned Comic (CommissionedComic.com), and you can also hear him on the Cheese Cast.
If you come in contact with dern in the wild, you can calm him and draw his attention with the traditional call of “Heyo dern!” Be warned that he may still be hostile to you if you are a hobo or a clown. Oddly, hobo clowns are not threatening to him.

Eric Kimball – Blade Bunny, Exiern, and Legacy

Now he could make his own characters come to life in books and toys for everyone to enjoy. Scott and his family soon found themselves in the magical kingdom of Franklin, Tennessee, where he often has adventures with his twin sons Brendan and Logan in the backyard where many strange creatures lurk.
