In the shimmering depths of the ocean, where coral reefs bloom and sunken treasures gleam, mermaids with a penchant for pranks and playful antics rule the seas. Join us as we navigate through underwater kingdoms filled with merfolk of all shapes and sizes, from siren songstresses to trickster tail-flippers.

Bear Claw is a writer and artist who likes fantasy, horror, and cartoon related stuff. He likes drawing and writing with a fantastical and dark bend to it.

Aerie Skysinger is an artist who resides in New England. She loves to experiment creatively in various styles and mediums, and finds inspiration through nature, fantasy, and the fandoms she is passionate about. Aerie is formally educated and trained in landscape design (the outdoors kind), and pulls elements from that into original art she creates. Her currently ongoing collaborative projects include a fantasy-adventure based webcomic and the illustration of two children s books. She can often be found in her fandom-art sandbox at https://www.tumblr.com/aerie-skysinger

Kevin D. Lintz is a comic book letterer, writer, and editor. He learned his skills in a Comics Experience class and honed them on the mean streets of his all-ages comic book, Team SLUG. He startles his family by making sound effect noises out loud to try and translate them into written words. He has even watched “Helvetica”, the full-length feature movie about the font Helvetica. https://lintzlettering.com/

Christian De Matteo is a writer and college professor, founder of Tellworthy.com and co-founder of FugitivePoems.com with artist-extraordinaire James Lines. He loves all forms of art and entertainment, enjoys long walks on the beach and other less sandy locations, and is fatally allergic to fluffy cats (in case you wanted to get rid of him). He can be found pontificating/dad-joking on Twitter: @CDMetc and @FugitivePoems. He cannot draw. Like at all.

Jack Van Thomme illustrates comics and pitches in when he can. You can see the things he likes to draw and read the things he likes to talk about on Twitter and Instagram @Real_JackVT https://www.instagram.com/real_jackvt/
