Tommy Roddy was born in Seoul, South Korea and raised in Columbia, South Carolina. He now calls San Francisco home. He has always rooted for the sidekicks in the pages of his favorite comics. Though mostly a Marvel X-Men fan, the ‘80s run of the Teen Titans has a special place in his heart. Tommy was awarded with a lifetime membership in Blind LGBT Pride International (formerly BFLAG) for Pride High’s positive portrayal of a blind lesbian teen. He was a recipient of the third annual Prism Comics Queer Press Grant along with fellow San Franciscan, Justin Hall.

Polawat Darapong has liked drawing and painting since he was very young, but started digital art about seven years ago. He’s a part time artist and creating artwork is a good way to relax from his stressful office duties. Working as a comic colorist is a great experience for him and it’s even better to know that someone loves his work. Visit Polawat’s online gallery at polawat.deviantart.com.

Mike Millard’s life-long passion for comics began in first grade when his teacher realized he wouldn’t read anything but comics. After a decade spent at Oklahoma State University, Mike moved to Kansas to pursue his dream of being a teacher of—of all things—middle school math. Shortly thereafter, he found his way to an online community of like-minded comic and video game fans that led to the creation of Lightspot for Pride High. During the summer months, Mike can be found on various online superhero games playing his creation. He also spends entirely too much time updating his status on Facebook.
