WHO WE ARE:
Both myself and Byron have been working in animation for over a decade, doing occasional comic book work on the side for both DC and MARVEL.
I have directed on shows such as AVENGERS: EARTH'S MIGHTIEST HEROES, THE BATMAN, DEADSPACE (DTV), and on TRANSFORMER'SRIME. In comics my most proud achievement was writing on Dave Bullock's visually stunning Deadman story for DC'S WEDNESDAY COMICS.
Byron has done design work and story-boarded on many cartoons, including BEN 10, TRANSFORMERS: PRIME, AVENGER'S: EARTH'S MIGHTIEST HEROES, and TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, just to name a few.
MABIGON is a project we brainstormed while working on a show together to create a story we both craved and wanted to share with other like-minded fans of armored knights and epic fantasy.
THE STORY :
Before the days of King Arthur, beyond the veiled mists of time and space, there was MABIGON: THE DRAGON ISLES, whose history would echo throughout our own myths and legends. In this land, SHRIKE carved his reputation as its greatest warrior as he lead his elite group of knights, THE DEVIL'S OWN, on missions for the king to rid his world of magic and rebellion.
But things change when he rescues a princess, GWENYTH, pledged to be the king’s bride. Now their forbidden love will challenge all Shrike knows and believes in even as it tears the kingdom apart, pitting his once comrades-in-arms against him, including his second in command, and life long friend, DRAKE, whose jealous heart needed only a small push to become his deadliest enemy.
As the agents of destiny align their forces of light and darkness along battle lines, Shrike finds himself an unwilling pawn in their game, dragging both he and Gwenyth into the tides of war, and threatening to destroy the love they share forever.
