Matthew Tavares is putting his pencil to work for the final chapter of Blood & Motor Oil.  The most visually dynamic and action packed of the chapters, his comic penciling experience is about to light up pages filled with feuding family, broken hearts and of course, ROBOTS!  This fellow Canuck is about to take this change of pace in NEXUS and blow it out of the water.

Allison Danger is not only the writer/creator of the Blood and Motor Oil scripts and universe, she has taken on the role of inking and colourist for this project as well.  As the writer/creator, she has an invested interest in the characters development and an intimate understanding of the story and overall concept that can be told through nuance in colour selection and usage throughout the works.

Christopher Ables, master of some of the tightest pencils, and genious at bringing character design to life.  His panel work is stellar and is dynamic enough to take you on parts of this wild, but emotional journey.  The emotionality he is able to convey through a characters facial expressions makes his pencils stand apart.  This body of work has been done in his traditional comic style which helps some of the darker story points in OCULUS and ARCHIVE be more digestible.
