Hi, I'm Ryan. I'm an IT guy. What do I know about writing graphic novels? Well, I thought it would be fun. 

It looked easy enough: write down some words, draw some pictures. Walk in the park! Turns out the walk in the park was actually a treacherous roller coaster ride without a safety harness, and at the end of that vomit-induced, gravity-defying ride spawned Bartez.

Ryan partakes in many different activities. These activities may or may not be reflected in this story. He enjoys video games, boardgames, ballroom dancing, watching football (go ‘skins!), pro-wrestling, indie rock, and listening to comedy podcasts. He has also dabbled in parkour, voiceovers, and short-form improv.

Ryan is always looking to create. Whether it be short films with his best friends, writing spec scripts, more graphic novels, or collaborating with other like-minded individuals in any way, shape, or form (depending on the state and federal laws in which said collaboration will occur).

Ryan hopes you read Bartez and that it makes you smile even just a little bit. It would make his day/week/year/decade/century/infinity.




Morgan is a recent graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design, currently trying to learn the mysterious ways to properly making decent sequential art (more commonly known as comics). Originally from the mountains of wild West Virginia, but always cherishing her time in Savannah. 

Her goal is to have my original stories published throughout the world and take part in some projects of the bigger industries such as Dreamworks or Pixar.
