Contributor Notes

Lovern Kindzierski is a successful writer, colorist and illustrator based in Winnipeg, Canada. He has been nominated as best colorist for the Eisner Awards, Harvey Awards, and Schuster Awards. As a writer, he has worked on titles including Spiderman, Wolverine, and The Victorian. His writing on Tarzan garnered him a Harvey Award Best Writer nomination.

Based in London, England, and described by director Robert Rodriguez as a "God" for his art for Peter Straub's The Green Woman, John Bolton was seven when he first encountered a paint brush. It was love at first sight, offering him an output to visualize and create what he saw in his mind and put it to paper. Thus began a life-long ambition of creativity all connected by one underlying theme, the interesting and bizarre.

"3 Reasons Why You Need to Read Shame ... It's Smart, Sensual, and Shameless." -Jason Wilkins, Broken Frontier
