Michael Sarrao started writing short stories at an early age. By twelve years old he had written five short stories all of which were inspired by some of the greatest films of the 1980s. These included Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Superman and Batman. The latter two films were constant throughout his childhood in not only on television but through their monthly comic book series as well. Michael was drawn to science fiction since there are very little rules in the genre which allowed for the imagination to run wild.
In an effort to try new things Michael took up journalism in high school so he could keep a grounded approach to all of his writings. Inspired by Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s words that the best kind of science fiction can be a social commentary on the issues we deal with every day. It was this practical and real world experience as a budding journalist that helped Michael brainstorm numerous fictional universes. But he didn’t just envision them as comic books, he saw them coming to life on…
John Broglia’s love for comics dates back to his early childhood. Before he was even old enough to read, John’s mother would take him around the corner from their Brooklyn home to the local comics shop and let him pick out a handful of books that she would later read to him before he went to bed. This eventually led to John’s passion to create comics of his own. He emulated his heroes and created his own versions of popular characters all throughout his school years. When the time came to choose a college to attend, the choice was obvious. He needed to apply to a school where he could major in Cartooning. John attended the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan where, in his sophomore year, he discovered the world of animation and temporarily left the world of comics behind.
