Damon P. Gentry was born in Lakeland, FL in the year of his birth, 1979. Many things could be said about his obsessive-compulsive nature, his social anxieties, or his immortal love of karaoke, but these things are all par for the creative course, and so you shan’t be bored with such trivialities.
Thus far Damon has spent his time on Earth soaking up the knowledge of The Universe like a fleshy sponge. Normally this would give him a giant headache, but he has learned to cope by forgetting all the junk he doesn’t really need to know. Which is, truthfully, most of it.
He is generally fascinated by all things arts & entertainment-related, and after a childhood spent drawing Ninja Turtles, he went to art school in Orlando and learned how to draw boobies and butts. Then he taught himself to bang out some chords on keyboard, which lead to writing songs. In 2005, he made three short films in dreadfully poor taste which were submitted to Channel 101. Soon an obsession with Guitar Hero lead to tinkering with real guitars, and more songs were written. He is currently trying to promote himself and his friends by doing what they’ve always loved!
Aaron Conley was born in Baton Rouge, LA in 1977. He was then hauled off to the murky humid depths of Lakeland, FL to terrorize the halls of his elementary school with snarls and growls of the werewolf that lived in his mind. Dropping out of little league, he spent his days fully engrossed in a healthy dose of 25 cent Werewolf by Night and Marvel Tales featuring Spider-Man comics. When he realized there probably wasn’t going to be a chance of him actually turning into a wolf-man, the next best thing would probably be drawing werewolves all day, and this led to drawing lots of other oddities.
As adolescence faded into adulthood, Aaron became enthusiastic about music. Along with art and rock ‘n roll, there were women, there was booze. The wolf became silent.
2007 marked a submergence. No longer allowing distractions, Aaron has spent the remaining time awakening the beast from within. He has fallen deep into his first and only love, comics and art, with hopes of taking a bite out of the comics world!
Aaron and Damon have known each other intermittently since, what the crap, 1993? They haven’t always gotten along, as many shouting matches have been waged, but you can’t make a break-dancing omelet without break-dancing some eggs!
David Allen Roby was born in Orlando, Florida: 1979, shortly after central Florida was decimated by the “Hurricane of the Same Name,” and well, has destroyed or inflicted great discomfort in those around him for years to follow, usually under the influence of barley or rye. While much remains to be desired in his drinking etiquette, much more can be said for his musical creativity and desire.
Taught the piano at the age of five by his grandmother, he sang in church choir, was removed from said choir for bells, picked up the guitar courtesy of his old man around age 12, played trumpet in middle school band, learned to shred ‘the metal’ a la thrash-speed-death, then mellowed out playing the lowest of low bass frequencies while trying to strike out in the Barrens of Kentucky. In addition he currently plays tenor banjo, mandolin, the occasional lap-steel, homemade “didgeri-tube,” as well as any odd instrument laid before his curious maw.
As well as interests in making and playing various music with friends and alone he is currently working on his Bachelors of Art in Music at the University of Central Florida, majoring in Music while working towards a minor in Anthropology to fulfill his adolescent goal of becoming an Ethnomusicologist and one day professor extraordinaire.
Nicholas D’Amario grew up in a small New England town where his youth was nourished in the warm glow of 8-bit video games until one day he was sucked through his television by the ultimate warp zone. Finding himself in Videoland he started running with Captain N’s crew but was kicked out for being “too f***ing crazy”.
Broken hearted, Nicholas left Videoland to live a life ruled by his own imaginings which he sought to make manifest through his many talents; photography, storytelling, film, and digital art. It wasn’t long before Nicholas had to find a real job and began working with his Father in search of answering the Riddle of Steel. He found an answer not in steel, but in silver jewelry which by his own hands was melted, poured, and polished to portray the 8-bit love he had lost long ago.
Others saw in his works their own journeys and lost loves. He met artists with their own life stories similar to his, but less fake. Many of these artists he befriended, and through their help and inspiration, Nicholas D’Amario plans to accomplish a great many things.
Matthew Allison (born June 23, 1973, Denver, Colorado) is an American comic book writer, illustrator, and publisher. A prominent artist in the 1990s, he has since become a controversial figure in the medium.
In the early 1990s, self-taught artist Allison became prominent due to his work on Marvel Comics’ The Powerful Mutants Who Fight and later X-treme Touch-Force. In 1992, he and several other popular Marvel illustrators left the company to found Image Comics, which started a wave of comic books owned by their creators rather than by publishers. The first book published by Image Comics was Matt Allison’s Clenched BloodFists #1. It sold over 2,000,000 copies and in a publicity stunt a vial of Al Milgrom’s blood was added to the ink before printing.
Later that same year Allison retired from the comics scene but has recently launched a come-back.
He has 2 cats.
