HJ Whapeles - Creator/Writer
HJ Whapeles was raised in the state of Washington, on back dirt roads and rich forests. When he wasn't exploring the woods he grew up in, he spent his time reading comics, watching old westerns, and becoming addicted to 80's fantasy and horror movies. He served in the Marine Corps and earned a Presidential Service Badge, among other honors. He has been married to his amazing wife for 25 years and has been blessed with two incredibly talented kids who always demanded the most epic of bedtime stories growing up. The Redeemers is H.J.'s first work in comics. The story was originally developed as a novel, but he was convinced to make it a comic after his long-time friends, Shannon Potratz and Andy Owens, the artists of the book, started to develop the concept art of the characters. What you have in your hands is the hundreds of nights filled with Andy's long sighs and rants, Shannon's infectious laughter and extraordinary talent, and H.J.'s world that lived inside of his head. He hopes this story will inspire those who read it to never give up on what you believe in and to share the worlds you create with all.
