About the Author

Gary Carlson self-published and created the black and white superhero anthology Megaton back in the early '80s, which introduced many new comic book talents including artists Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld and Angel Medina (to name a few) as well as featuring the work of Butch Guice, Mike Gustovitch, Sam Grainger, Sam DeLaRosa and the late Gene Day. Gary Carlson co-created Vanguard with comic book artist Erik Larsen. Carlson later wrote Vanguard, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Supreme for Image Comics. He also co-wrote Aquaman and Nova with Erik Larsen. Carlson is the major creative force behind Big Bang Comics, serving as editor, writer and publisher. The series was originally published by Caliber Comics, then Image Comics, and is now self-published under the Big Bang Presents title.

Frank Fosco is a penciler/inker who started off with Gary Carlson’s independent comic book Megaton. In the pages of that anthology, as his first published comic work, it featured his very own creation, Ethrian. After that he ghosted layouts for, The Strangers from Malibu comics. The Strangers gig landed him some work as a fill in artist at DC. He is most notably known for a 23 issue run on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from Image comics. He has done work for Marvel on the Worlds Greatest Comic Magazine and back up stories in Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon. Along with a couple of projects in the works he is currently working on a Vanguard series which appears in Savage Dragon.
