Born to Cuban parents in Puerto Rico, Quique was always fascinated with telling stories. Writing from early age, he discovered comics and the love affair never wained. He tried to break into the industry during the 4 color days of the 80s with not much success so he dedicated himself to working in the advertising as creative and account director for a number of prestigious agencies such as Leo Burnett and BBDO where some of his campaigns won awards and honors. Once his daughter started to develop an interest in the visual arts, he felt the urge to return to his love of comics. Though mostly an inker, he still sketches and will spin a nice yarn if you ask nice. He is currently involved in a number of projects including a collection of stories set in a fantastical world which with the help of his artist friends should see the light of day late 2019 or early 2020. Recently was a finalist of the NJ Live Story Telling Contest from over 200 entries. Influences: Berni Wrightson, Terry Austin, Mike Grell, Neal Adams.

Marimar was born in Puerto Rico and started sketching at an early age. In 5th grade one of her art drawings was chosen for an exhibition mostly composed of middle and high school works. She later used her sketching to help her design her own clothes and later attended the Mood School of Sewing in NYC to improve her methods which she used to work on cosplay costumes for conventions such as NYCC and NY Anime Con. She has moved onto digital artwork under the supervision of Peter Scanlan, formerly of Marvel. She is working on numerous projects including for-charity Fanzines and a special project with studio partner, Quique. Follow on Instagram : marimarlopez_art
