Dave has been creating comics since childhood, but his career as an adult began in 2004 when he and writer Jim Clark teamed up for their critically acclaimed self published series Scar Tissue. Following that success, they again collaborated on the epic Western webcomic The Guns of Shadow Valley, which was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic and a Harvey Award for Best Online Work. His work for larger comic publishers began in 2010 with Robert Bloch’s That Hellbound Train (penned by Joe and John Lansdale), for IDW Publishing. Dave’s work as a guest artist can also been seen in their Godzilla series, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In 2012 he illustrated the horror fable Night of 1,000 Wolves, also for IDW. That same year brought a nomination for the Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award in comics. Dave has more comics projects on the way for 2013, including a project with writer Steve Niles titled Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem for Dark Horse Comics, and the return of The Guns of Shadow Valley.
Jim got his start writing fiction and poetry for various literary magazines, but the mini-series Scar Tissue marked his debut into the world of writing comic books. Jim has also written numerous short stories appearing in such comic books as Hope: The Tsunami Relief Anthology, Memories & Echoes, Leesway, Havoc 21, Somnia: Daydreams and Nightscapes, Pantheon, Varied Scaries, and The Hunger. In 2012 he penned a children’s book called The Jumping Flea Circus. In addition to writing comics he also makes music.
