THIEVES' WORLD GRAPHICS 1
Tim Sale attended the School of Visual Arts
in Manhattan while simultaneously taking John Buscema's workshop in comic
illustration in the mid 1970's.
A loyal resident of Seattle, Washington, he started the Grey Archer
Press with his sister and works closely with Northern Lights, a

writing. Her other interests include film, interior design, football,
the study of anything Japanese, and aviation.

task of coordinating the efforts of the Thieves' World Graphics
team with the production and marketing schedule of her company.
With her heart in fandom and her head in the business world (accounting),
Reynolds created the Starblaze Graphics line of comic illustrated
adventure when she initiated the publication of ElfQuest Books 1,
2, 3, and 4, the colour volumes, in 1981 for Donning. Her skilful
marketing of ElfQuest to mainstream bookstores opened the doors
for a wider public exposure and acceptance of stories in the graphic
