Brandon J. Carr entered the world of webcomics with a bang in late 2001 with his surprisingly popular strip Between The Panels. Brandon followed up his grueling four-strip Between The Panels run with Crater City with Jeff Kidd in a format that allowed him to experiment with various styles and presentations. In 2004, Brandon created tangential toons in his strip Iago's Scrambled Tales for PVComics. In 2005, Brandon has brought back Between The Panels and is the artist for Chuck Morrison's Quantum.
Away from the keyboard, Brandon is a husband and father with far too little time on his hands. Brandon attempts to keep the world abreast of his ever-thrilling exploits on his oft-neglected personal site.
Born in the mythic land of Tax-Free Shopping, Phil Chan was exiled to the land called the Garden State where he and Joe Dunn forged a partnership of the ages called Digital Pimp.
Contrary to popular belief (and four years of college) Phil does not put the “Digital” in Digital Pimp nor the “Pimp.” He does, however, hear voices in his head which he occasionally commits to paper to share them with the world in the form of comics.
Logan DeAngelis was raised by a nomadic tribe of advertising executives in the swamps of New Jersey. Given a steady diet of silver age comics and Warner Brothers cartoons, some say it was inevitable that he eventually attempt to take over the world through sequential art. His webcomic KU-2 has been a fan favorite since its first appearance in March 2001, followed in 2002 with a glimpse at his political sword & sorcery tale Wyrms. Today he is the chief cook and bottle washer here at PV Comics as well as one of the creators making the comics, and one of the partners at ComiXpress, making print comics an option for small press and indie creators.
Logan would like to thank his loving wife and 4 small house daemons for giving him the time to make the comics he loves; their support makes it all possible — And another big shout out to Jimbo and Alice for all their love and support, wherever they are.
At any given moment Logan either has a pencil, a cup of coffee or a pint of Guinness in his hand.
Joe Dunn, from the Digital Pimp crew, is a freelance artist living in New York City. After graduating from Parsons School of Design, at the New School University, he and lifelong pal Phillip Chan decided it was high time they took over the world of comic books. Since May 2003, Digital Pimp Online has flourished with its weekly web comics (Free Lunch written and drawn by Dunn, and Matriculated which Dunn also does the art for). The Pimps have even ventured into the world of Print comics with their anthology series "Tales from the Pimp." What's in the future for Dunn and the Pimps? More of the same, but on a larger level, thanks to the PV comics family.

Freddy Lopez is an illustrator living in San Antonio, Texas. He's been drawing ever since he discovered the beautiful marks his crayons left on his Mom's kitchen walls.

Nate Piekos graduated from Rhode Island College in 1998 and instead of putting his graphic design degree to good use, he spent all his time playing guitar and drawing comics. He soon realized good, affordable comic fonts were hard to find, so he created a few to use in his indie book, The Whole Enchilada. On a whim, he put them online and KAPOW!!! Blambot Comic Fonts suddenly existed. Since then, Nate has become type designer to Harvey Award Winner, Mike "Madman" Allred, as well as having his designs licensed by such companies as Microsft, Sierra Software, New Yorker Magazine and The Gap.

D.J. Coffman brings Yirmumah to PV Comics. No, not the mother that loved and raised you, we're talking the mother of all comics here. Well, at least to some people ... Yirmumah was an underground mini comic that D.J. did in the Pittsburgh area in the 90's. Yirmumah was created after a couple years worth of frustration trying to "Break In" the comics business. The idea was simply, Kick the industry door in, give everyone the finger and leave. That was Yirmumah the comic. After attending some comic shows with said book, more and more jobs and publishing deals came his way. To this day D.J. is pretty busy drawing for other people, but has always felt like he's neglected his bastard-child-like comics. Now, with the aid of evil technology, probably sent from the future to destroy us all, Mr. Coffman gladly gives more of his time to entertain readers via the web. You can keep up on the latest Yirmumah news at yirmumah.net or DJ's other projects at djcoffman.com

Bob McDeavitt is the almost inhumanly genius writer of the single greatest comic creation EVER made, "Yirmumah". Working with D.J. Coffman on "Yirmumah", Bob has also been the writer extradonaire alongside Coffman with the other well known comic titles such as the syndicated daily strip "Gravity", "Space Ape", and the graphic novel, "Zombieopolis". Bob has also dabbled in childrens novels and other random rantings throughout the creative spectrum.
When not creating works of comedic genius Bob can be found competing in marathons and weightlifting contests throughout the tri-state area. Okay. I just lied. Bob can be found on the nearest couch. Snoring. Forgive me.
James Patrick is a writer. It’s that simple.
However, how and how he writes what would be a neurotic, tangled mass which would be impossible to unravel.
What James has written is a little simpler. In 2000 there was Crackurz #1 to much praise and critical success, which was followed by a brief stint at Kevin Smith’s Movie Poop Shoot and the strip Soda, which didn’t get much recognition unless women were calling him a sexist or Christian groups were calling him insensitive. There was a nomination for an online cartooning award, but James doesn’t like to brag. It was a national cartooning award. There are some columns to his credit at Comic Book Galaxy, Grayhaven, Sequential Tart and Pop Image, some more strips, one about Mark Waid and Bill Jemas and which got so much traffic it crashed a website. James just finished doing backups for the critically acclaimed, much-buzzed Hero Happy Hour comic – including the Super Special. He currently has turned his attention to print comics and is putting out Lionxor bimonthly with PV Comics, and, as of October 2004, is writing two series (one is Eclipse and Vega: Sophomore Seasons) in a work-for-hire capacity, and is developing too many projects to mention. A couple with some prominent companies. Though he doesn’t like to brag. Crackurz Comics #1 and issues of Lionxor can be found at comixpress.com, archives of Soda can be found at Moviepoopshoot.com, and upcoming projects, news and free content can be found at crackurz.com
When he’s not writing comics, James is juggling his twins (one-handed) and not bragging to his wife about how great he is.
Oh, and did I mention he’ll be writing a television show come winter?
A self-professed skeptic, believer and hypocrite, Jon Plante entered the online comic scene on January 1st, 2001. His madman manifesto, "Two-Headed Tales," soon wooed an audience in the 10s with mysterious tales of irony mixed with bad science.
Last year Jon was arrested for the attempted murder of a reptilian shapeshifter masquerading as a bear at the Columbus Zoo. He's currently out on bail.
But all of this is sadly a lie. Jon Plante died on December 31st, 2000. His comics are made by his ghost.
