Known for roles in some of the most popular television series in both the US and the UK, Alex Kingston began her career with a recurring role on the BBC teen drama Grange Hill. After appearing in such films as The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover and A Pin for the Butterfly, Kingston began appearing on the long-running medical drama ER in September of 1997. She first appeared in the premiere episode of the fourth season, the award-winning live episode "Ambush" where she portrayed British surgeon, Elizabeth Corday. Her character proved to be incredibly popular, appearing on the series for just over seven seasons until leaving in October 2004. Kingston did return to the role in spring 2009 during ER’s 15th and final season for two episodes. Kingston continued to entertain US audiences in November 2005, when she guest-starred in the long-running mystery drama Without a Trace.

Not limiting her talents to the screen, in 2006, Kingston starred as Nurse Ratched, opposite Christian Slater as Randle Patrick McMurphy, in the Garrick Theatre's West End production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

2008 saw Kingston in one of her most beloved recurring roles to genre fans when she guest-starred in the fourth series of Doctor Who. Her debut as the character River Song was in the two-part episode "Silence in the Library"/"Forest of the Dead.” Originally thought to be a one-off, River Song was such a hit with fans she has since appeared in fifteen episodes of the series and counting.

Later in 2008, Kingston took the part of Mrs Bennet in the acclaimed four-part British television production Lost in Austen, based on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.In October that same year, Kingston returned to US screens with an appearance in the perennially popular CSI:Crime Scene Investigation where she portrayed Patricia Alwick, a psychiatrist and grief counsellor who helps the team cope with the recent death of CSI member Warrick Brown.

The next year, Kingston portrayed Miranda Pond, a defense attorney in two episodes of the legal drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and returned the following year as the same character in two more episodes of the long-running series.

In early 2013, Kingston began appearing in the CW series Arrow,based on the Green Arrow DC comics character, as Professor Dinah Lance, the mother of Laurel and Sara Lance and can next be seen in the films Happily Ever After and Bukowski, based on the life of author Charles Bukowski.

Acclaimed illustrator Basil Gogos was born in Egypt to Greek parents. He moved with his family to America when he was sixteen years old. Gogos attended several New York area schools which include the National School of Design, the Phoenix School of Design, and the School of the Visual Arts. Moreover, Basil studied with noted illustrator Frank J. Reilly at the Art Students League of New York.

After winning a competition sponsored by Pocket Books, Gogos began his professional career with his first cover painting for the Western paperback novel "Pursuit" in 1959. He provided cover illustrations for men's adventure magazines in the early 1960's. Basil achieved his greatest enduring popularity with his remarkable cover illustrations for nearly 50 issues of the beloved horror cinema magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland. Gogos not only did drawings of such iconic horror thespians as Vincent Price, Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee, Lon Chaney, and Peter Cushing, but also such classic horror characters as Dracula, the Mummy, Frankenstein's monster, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Godzilla, King Kong, the Wolf Man, and the Phantom of the Opera.

Other publications Basil did cover art for are "Eerie," "Creepy," "Spaceman," "Wildest Westerns," and "The Spirit." In the late 1970's Gogos decided to focus more on fine art; he did personal art pieces in watercolor and other media. He also worked as a photo retoucher in the ad department for United Artists, did occasional illustrations for movie posters, and later moved into advertising where he produced presentation sketches and storyboards for a major ad agency. Basil returned to the horror genre in the mid-1990's; his work has appeared on trading cards, lithographs, and the covers of the magazine "Monsterscene." In addition, Gogos has painted CD covers for Rob Zombie, the Misfits, and Electric Frankenstein. The coffee table book "Famous Monster Movie Art of Basil Gogos" was published by Vanguard Productions in 2005. In 2006 Basil Gogos was the recipient of the Rondo Hutton Classic Horror Awards' Special Monster Kid Hall of Fame Award for his exceptional contributions to classic horror.

Lexie Dunne is a woman of many masks, all of them stored neatly in a box under her bed. By day a mild-mannered technical writer and by night an adventuress and novelist, she keeps life interesting by ignoring it and writing instead. She hails from St. Louis, home of the world’s largest croquet game piece, and SUPERHEROES ANONYMOUS is her professional debut into the world of caped crusaders, a journey that started when her father took her and her brother to see The Rocketeer.

Getting her to return a phone call is impossible. You’d have better luck sticking a Dr Pepper under a propped up box and waiting nearby, string in hand.

Wolfman was active in fandom before he broke into professional comics at DC in 1968. Wolfman was one of the first to publish Stephen King, with In A Half-World of Terror in Wolfman's horror fanzine Stories of Suspense No. 2.

Wolfman's first published work for DC Comics appeared in Blackhawk No. 242. He and long-time friend Len Wein created the character Jonny Double in Showcase No. 78 scripted by Wolfman. The two co-wrote Eye of the Beholder in Teen Titans No. 18, which would be Wein's first professional comics credit. Neal Adams was called upon to rewrite and redraw a Teen Titans story which had been written by Wein and Wolfman. The story, titled Titans Fit the Battle of Jericho! would have introduced DC's first African American superhero, but was rejected by publisher Carmine Infantino. The revised story appeared in Teen Titans No. 20. Wolfman and Gil Kane created an origin for Wonder Girl in Teen Titans No. 22, which introduced the character's new costume.

In 1974, Wolfman moved to Marvel Comics as protégé of then-editor Roy Thomas. When Thomas stepped down, Wolfman eventually took over as editor, initially in charge of the black and white magazines then finally the color line of comics.

While at Marvel Wolfman wrote lengthy runs of Amazing Spider-Man (where he co-created the Black Cat); Fantastic Four; and Doctor Strange. He created Nova in that character's eponymous first issue. In 1978, Wolfman took over writing the Howard the Duck syndicated newspaper comic strip, which adapted several stories from the original Steve Gerber-written comics.

His best-received work was The Tomb of Dracula, a fledgling horror comic which in his six years as writer Wolfman turned into a rich, complex piece of high gothic, well matched with the moody shade-and-light pencilling of Gene Colan. Taking Bram Stoker's basic story, Wolfman created his own vampire mythology and introduced a set of new characters, including Blade.

In 1980, Wolfman returned to DC and teaming with penciller George Pérez, Wolfman relaunched DC's Teen Titans. The New Teen Titans added the Wolfman-Pérez creations Raven, Starfire and Cyborg to the old team's Robin, Wonder Girl, Kid Flash and Beast Boy (renamed Changeling). The series became DC's first new hit in years, and its first serious competitor to Marvel since the early 1970s.

Other projects by Wolfman for DC during the early 1980s included collaborating with artist Gil Kane on a run on Superman, rejoining Colan (who had also moved to DC) on the short-lived Night Force, a revival of Dial H for Hero with Carmine Infantino, and a nearly two year run on Green Lantern with Joe Staton. During their collaboration on Green Lantern, Wolfman and Staton created the Omega Men.

In 1985, Wolfman and Pérez launched Crisis on Infinite Earths, a 12-issue limited series celebrating DC's 50th anniversary. Featuring a cast of thousands and a timeline that ranged from the beginning of the universe to the end of time, it killed scores of characters, integrated a number of heroes from other companies to DC continuity, and re-wrote 50 years of DC universe history in order to streamline it.

Wolfman was also involved in the DC Comics relaunch of the Superman line, reinventing nemesis Lex Luthor and initially scripting the Adventures of Superman title.

Michael J. Zeck, renowned comic book illustrator and storyteller! Creator of the black Spider-man Costume!

A heavy-hitter in the comics industry, and influencing generations of artists, one would have to argue which of Mike's series has been the most influential, or which is embossed most deeply in our pop culture:

Zeck's epic six part story Kraven's Last Hunt, with J.M. Dematteis and Bob McLeod, springs immediately to mind. This groundbreaking series took the Spider-man character to a whole new level, and has been touted by readers as the "Greatest Spider-man story of all time," in recent poles;

Considered one of "the" Punisher artists, Zeck's work with writer Steven Grant on the character--collected as "Circle of Blood"--sets the standard for the look and feel of the Punisher and propelled him to flagship character status at Marvel. In fact, along with air-brush artist Phil Zimmelman, Mike has created some of the most recognizable painted images of the Punisher ever made;

The Limited Series Secret Wars, set the comic book readership on their ears, and brought a new black-and-white costume design for Spider-man (designed by Zeck) which is still recognizable and indelible to this day. Spider-man wore the costume temporarily, and it still lives on in the form of the super-villain, Venom;

In short, when you stop and think of the t-shirts sporting Zeck images, the homages to his covers, the lineage of his storytelling, you need a long sheet of paper to start writing them down.

Michael J. Zeck it seems, always knew he would work in the arts. Born in Pennsylvania and growing up in South Florida, he later attended the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida, his eye always on working in the sequential art field. He began that career at Charlton Comics with their animation-related line of comics leading to horror titles, later moving on to Marvel Comics. Some of his first work at Marvel included Master of Kung Fu and Captain America, with many more titles, at numerous companies, to follow from there.

Zeck's work has graced the pages and covers of Aquaman, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Green Lantern, G.I. Joe, G.I. Joe: Special Missions, Lobo, Deathstroke The Terminator, The Eliminator and too many titles to mention here.

For more information on this appearance and Michael J. Zeck contact Eva Ink Artist Group at: evaink@aol.com.
