CHRISTOPHER MILLS – Writer/Letterer
Chris is a freelance writer, editor and graphic artist with over two decades of experience in the publishing industry, working primarily for newspapers and comic book publishers. A professional writer since 1990, he has scripted numerous independent comic books in a variety of genres, including Leonard Nimoy’s Primortals, Shadow House, The Night Driver, Kolchak the Night Stalker, the Spinetingler Award-winning Femme Noir, and the critically-acclaimed crime thriller, Gravedigger: The Scavengers.
He has also authored a handful of published short stories, including contributions to Moonstone Books’ The Spider Chronicles, The Captain Midnight Chronicles and Werewolves, Dead Moon Rising.
His taste in entertainment clearly peaked when he was about 15, which certainly explains his embarrassing obsession with James Bond, hardboiled crime fiction, comic books, paperback pulps, space opera, Universal/Hammer/Toho Monsters, sword & sorcery sagas, old genre TV shows and vintage B-movies.
RICK BURCHETT – Artist
Rick has been drawing comics professionally since the early 80s. His early work appeared for First Comics, Pacific Comics, Capital Comics, and AC Comics on titles like Black Diamond, E-Man and American Flagg. Moving to DC Comics (as well as the DC imprints Impact Comics and Vertigo), he has drawn virtually every major character in the DC Universe, including Batman, the Flash, Superman, Blackhawk, The Black Hood, Wonder Woman, The Justice League and Green Lantern.
He has also worked for Marvel Comics on She-Hulk, Spider-Man and Kid Colt, Oni Press (Queen & Country: Declassified), and Moonstone Books (The Phantom). Burchett received the Eisner Award in 1996 with Paul Dini and Ty Templeton for his work on The Batman And Robin Adventures. He shared the Eisner Award again in 1999, with Templeton and Terry Beatty, for his work on Batman: The Gotham Adventures.
Recent works include Jinx for Archie Comics and the webcomic, Lady Sabre & The Pirates of the Ineffable Aether, written by Greg Rucka.
