Dustin Weaver


Randy Emberlin is a comic book artist, though he has spent the past 30 years working in a variety of creative fields. Whether as an illustrator of educational books or an animator on over 50 television commercials, he has made his presence felt through his style and sensibilities.

Over the last 20 years he is probably best known for his work as an inker in comics, with a resume that includes long runs on Amazing Spider-Man and Web of Spider-Man, as well as being one of the co-creators of the character, Carnage. Other Marvel titles hes contributed to include GI Joe, Doctor Strange, Alien Legion, Star Wars Tales, Silver Surfer, and Rogue.

Dark Horse titles include Star Wars: Crimson Empire, Ghost, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the R.I.P.D. graphic novel from the movie for Dark Horse, and Left Behind for Wildstorm. He has worked with a wide range of pencilers and has many distinctive styles that fans are well acquainted with.

Not only is Randy a talented artist, he has taught numerous classes to young aspiring artists during the summers in his hometown of Portland Oregon.


Chris Warner has worn many hats in his thirty-four years in the comic-book industry. A native of Portland, Oregon, Chris broke into comics in 1984 as a penciller, inker, and cover artist for Marvel Comics on titles such as Alien Legion, Moon Knight, and Doctor Strange.

Dark Horse Comics launched in 1986, giving Chris the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the fledgling publisher. Chris wrote and drew Black Cross, the cover story of the initial Dark Horse title, Dark Horse Presents #1, and went on to draw a number of early Dark Horse comics, including The American, Predator, Terminator, and Aliens vs. Predator. By 1988, Chris added Dark Horse editorial duties to his resume, working on Akira, Dirty Pair, Terminator, and more. During this time, Chris was heavily involved in the development of the Dark Horse superhero universe, including the creation of Barb Wire, which became a feature film.

Chris left the Dark Horse staff in 1993 to pursue freelance work, drawing Team 7 for Image Comics and writing and again drawing Barb Wire for Dark Horse. Chris returned to the Dark Horse editorial staff in 1998, where he remains today, managing a wide array of comics (Aliens, Empowered, Predator, Conan), graphic novels (Grandville, Best Wishes) manga (Berserk, Gantz), and art and pop-culture books (Blast Off!, Drawing Down the Moon: The Art of Charles Vess), while writing and drawing in his spare time, writing Ghost, Barb Wire, and Predator and drawing covers for Predator, Aliens, and Star Wars.


Dustin Weaver began his professional career in 2003 as an intern at WildStorm Studios. Since then, hes worked for most of the major comic book publishers.

While at Dark Horse Comics, he dedicated himself illustrating an extensive run of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. He helped shape IDWs Rocksteady and Bebop in their Ninja Turtles comics by co-writing the duo's introductory issue and the mini-series Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything!

Dustins largest body of work has been for Marvel Comics where he co-created the acclaimed series S.H.I.E.L.D: Architects of Forever with writer Jonathan Hickman. He also filled the shoes as both writer and artist for Edge of Spider-Verse and the 5-issue series, Infinity Gauntlet: Warzones! Other titles and characters hes illustrated include X-Force, Astonishing X-Men and Avengers.

Marvel has also enlisted Dustin as a cover artist, creating variants for such titles as Black Panther, Sabertooth, The Marvels, Powers of X, Eternals: Thanos Rises, Amazing Spider-Man, G.I. Joe, The Punisher, New Avengers, Daredevil, Iron Man, and Ghost Rider.

His imagination knows no bounds. Hes started a Patreon for his own mind-bending anthology series, Paklis. Influences for Paklis range from Kafka to Miyazaki. The Twilight Zone, Aeon Flux cartoons, the comics of Moebius and Otomo are all major touchstones. Paklis is available through Image Comics.
