Writer: The Veil
Sean is also the writer of Gene Simmons Dominatrix by Gene Simmons Comics Group published by IDW Publishing and has written for Gene Simmons House of Horrors, also published by IDW. He's also currently writing the graphic novel Shan: Be My Hero for VLE Comics and is a staff writer for the Writer's Digest Grand Prize Zine Award-winning Cyber Age Adventures magazine.
In addition to writing for what passes for a living, Sean is the textbook definition of jack-of-all-trades (except those that require being handy around the house). He also makes a hell of an espresso, writes and records music, leads worship at his church, designs web pages, and parades around in public as the living embodiment of vanity. He's the father of three future comic book geeks and husband of one disarmingly beautiful and uber-understanding woman.
You can find out even more about Sean (as if that wasn't enough) at Taylorverse.com and his ComicSpace.
Penciller: Nocturnal Essence #1-2
Nicola grew up in Syndey, Australia, on an unhealthy diet of 70's
American TV where her fetish for people in shiny outfits with
amazing powers germinated. And, coming from an artistic family,
there was rarely a time when she didn't have a pencil or paint brush
in her hand and was always encouraged to use them.
After a couple of mini careers modelling, acting and costume
designing, she moved into the comic book industry in 2002 with work for
Australian publisher, Phosphorescent Comics, then spent a couple of
years living in New York City chasing the dream. "Nocturnal Essence" was actually her inaugural gig in the American market. Since then, Nicola has
worked for Dark Horse, Top Cow, IDW, Image, with talents such as
Peter David and Ron Marz, plus on-line cult comic "Halloween Man".
In 2005 she was featured in Wizard magazine as
a "Talent to Watch". She started working on "Birds of Prey" for DC Comics
with Gail Simone in 2006.

We wouldn't be here without a little help from our friends...
David M. Hitch:
David is the CFO of Rogue Wolf Entertainment, aka the man behind the curtain. Being a comic fan and and statue collector for many years, he approached us with an offer in 2005 when our web comic was on life support. Thanks to his investment and marketing experience, we made the transition from "just another indie" to a publisher with a future.
He is the man who put the Powerful in Powerful Press by laying the foundation of our original comic book universe that evolved into the Rogue Wolf Metaverse. He graduated with a degree in Broadcasting from Northeastern Illinois, and is an expert on every monster and action movie known to man.
She has been an editor of sorts and a fantastic writing teacher. For the longest time her identity was a closely guarded secret. All I could tell you was
that she resides in Hollywood, works in television, writes a lot, and loves comics. But now you can learn more
about her from her blog and website.
This is the man who ushered us into the world of web comics. He's been another mentor of sorts and has leant some
invaluable help along the way. For something completely different, check out his comic,
