Tony Bedard began lettering, editing, and writing for Valiant Comics and made his way up to DC, where he edited the wonderful Hourman series and Hellblazer for Vertigo. He then went exclusive with CrossGen Comics, where he wrote Mystic and co-created Negation with Mark Waid. After CrossGen, Bedard wrote the most notable run of Exiles (Worlds Tour), several issues of Uncanny X-Men, and the Spider-man: Breakout mini series for Marvel. He's since signed an exclusive deal with DC and has done work on Supergirl and the Legion of Super Heroes, Supergirl, Black Canary, and Batman Confidential (the popular Wrath Child arc with Rags Morales) and is currently writing Birds of Prey with inks by Winston Salem's John Floyd. Tony has his own message board at Comic Book Resources.com.
Sean McKeever first received praise for his independent, creator-owned series The Waiting Place, which opened the door for him at Marvel, where he wrote, among other things, Incredible Hulk, The Inhumans Tsunami maxi series, and Spider-man Loves Mary Jane. He also created Gravity & Sentinel and contributed to the Marvel Adventures line with Spider-man and Fantastic Four. In 2005, he won the Eisner award for Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition and in 2007 he signed an exclusive deal with DC Comics. He's since worked on Birds of Prey after Gail Simone's departure and became caretaker to the Teen Titans following Geoff Johns' departure.Â Next up, in addition to Teen Titans, he will be blazing a trail for the evil Clock King's strike team in the Terror Titans mini series coming to stores onÂ October 1st!Â Check him out atÂ Sean McKeever.com.
