Brandon Jerwa

Brandon Jerwa is best known for writing a wide variety of comics titles, such as G.I. Joe, Highlander, and Battlestar Galactica, but he's never been content with just one creative pursuit. At any given moment, Jerwa may be producing and directing independent film projects, performing original music with his band SD6, teaching classes for aspiring writers, or serving as a cultural ambassador for the American comics industry at festivals abroad. He currently resides in Seattle, Washington. 

Eric Trautmann

Eric Trautmann is a writer and graphic designer who resides near the Washington coast. After many years writing dialogue for videogames, and world-building for game franchises such as Crimson Skies, Perfect Dark Zero, Halo: Combat Evolved and Gears of War, he turned to his first love: comics. 


Trautmann is perhaps best known for his collaborations with novelist and comics writer Greg Rucka (Steve Lieber's partner on the Whiteout series); with Rucka, Trautmann has co-written several DC Comics series and one-shots, including Checkmate, Final Crisis: Resist and Action Comics. Solo work for DC followed, including Adventure Comics, The Shield, and JSA Vs. Kobra: Engines of Faith.
