Authors & Artists
Scott Lobdell, Writer
Two time Wizard-Award-winning writer Scott Lobdell is most closely associated with his seven year run on Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men, as well as his co-creation with artist Chris Bachalo on the same company’s Generation X. He has also worked on series such as WILDCATS, The Darkness, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and KISS! While keeping one foot firmly planted in the comic book industry with such creator-owned properties as Ball and Chain and The Stray, Scott is currently writing television pilots, direct to DVD movies (for comic book legend Stan Lee) and feature films in Hollywood.
Lea (Rumble Girls) Hernandez, Art for Book #1
Lea Hernandez’ high school friends recall that she wanted to do nothing else but make comics. After graduation, college, and getting married to someone who loved comics too, she does. Lea’s been a comics pro for almost twenty years, and has worked every comics-related job there is: artist, writer, colorist, letterer, editor and publisher. Lea’s advice to aspiring cartoonists is to keep drawing, and to write and draw comics about what happens to you (even if you disguise it as superheroes, fantasy or science fiction), because those are the best and most true stories. Lea lives in Texas with her husband, two kids, four cats, two dogs and seven fancy rats. Her favorite quote about art is from the great illustrator Andrew Loomis: “I can’t draw a straight line, either. I use a ruler.”
Daniel Rendon, Art for Book #2 and Beyond
Yes I am a cat! Just don’t tell it to my dog! I was born on February 6. I have always been an avid reader, so I think it’s only natural that I found comics fascinating. I just love how comics merge both writing and drawing, how they let you experiment new paths, but most important they give you the opportunity to create your own worlds and share them with others!
