Lopresti's first published work of note was the Malibu Comics title Sludge, in 1993. He has since gone on to illustrate such titles as Marvel's X-Men, Captain Marvel, Planet Hulk and Ms. Marvel and was the artist for DC's Wonder Woman for issues #20-23, 26-30, 32-40, switching shifts with artist Bernard Chang. He drew covers for both Adventure Comics and Superman: Last Stand of New Krypton, as well as interior art for Justice League: Generation Lost. Lopresti was amongst the new creative talent running DC Comics' The New 52 relaunch in 2011, becoming the penciller of the new Justice League International series, working with writer Dan Jurgens. In June 2012 it was announced that Lopresti and writer Christy Marx will be producing a revival of Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld in the Sword of Sorcery title.
Since that time, Lopresti has written and illustrated the serialized Garbage Man series for DC Comics which appeared in the anthology mini-series' Weird Worlds and My Greatest Adventure and dealt with the adventures of a young corporate lawyer turned toxic muck monster who, according to Lopresti, was created because "the DCU needed a monster/hero character to replace Swamp Thing which at the time was being held captive by Vertigo". That project was followed by work on Detective Comics and Legends of the Dark Knight. In 2015-2016, Lopresti wrote and illustrated his first creator-owned project, Power Cubed, published by Dark Horse Comics and wrote and illustrated the revamped Metamorpho series for DC Comics.


Sam Jones made his first film appearance in the 1979 romantic comedy film 10. His appearance in 10 allowed him to beat Kurt Russell and Arnold Schwarzenegger for his most famous role, that of Flash Gordon in the 1980 film of the same name. Jones' hair was dyed blonde for this role. However, a falling-out between Jones and producer Dino De Laurentiis led to the scrapping of a planned film trilogy.
He went on to play Chris Rorchek in the TV series Code Red (1981-1982). He had guest roles in other TV shows including The A-Team, Hunter, and Riptide. In 1987, he played the lead role in a TV adaptation of Will Eisner's comics character The Spirit. He also played the title character in the short-lived NBC sci-fi series The Highwayman.

Jones starred in the 1986 theatrical release My Chauffeur and the straight-to-video movies Jungle Heat (1985), Jane and the Lost City (1987), Under the Gun (1988), Silent Assassins (1988), Whiteforce (1988), Driving Force (1989), and One Man Force (1989). In the 1990s, Jones had roles in films including In Gold We Trust (1990), Maximum Force (1992), Fist of Honor (1993), Hard Vice (1994), Enter the Shootfighter (1995), Texas Payback (1995), The Killer Inside (1996), Earth Minus Zero (1996), Baja Run (1996) and American Tigers (1996), and guest roles in the TV shows Baywatch, Diagnosis Murder and Walker: Texas Ranger.

Christopher Schenck grew up in a small town north of San Francisco, the son of pot-smoking hippies and liberal utopian dreamers. His intensely chaotic and backwards childhood was mollified by reading Conan and Silver Surfer comics all day and night in his treehouse. Determined to escape and live on solid ground, he made a career as a comic book penciller, enrolling in a school that had no comic book curriculum or faculty. After school he landed some small jobs in the burgeoning black and white boom of the late 80's which led to more work for DC Comics and Dark Horse. His first regular gig was penciller on Tarzan monthly for Dark Horse comics. Never one to sit still, he kept looking for new opportunities and new clients. The video game industry was just beginning, and he started to get jobs on games and animated shows. Since that time Christopher has worked on Batman Beyond, The Lord of the Rings, Stretch Armstrong, G.I. Joe, Secret Saturdays, DC Super Hero Girls, Monster Match, James Bond, Ultimate Spider-Man, and too many more to list here. In addition to his work in comics and animation, Christopher taught comics and figure drawing at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, starting in 1996, where he developed a reputation as a top draughtsman and storyteller. He currently lives in Northern California with his much smarter wife.
