In His Own Words:
My professional career took off in 1979 with Ka-zar the Savage, written by Bruce Jones. The Marvel Graphic Novel X-Men "God Loves, Man Kills" followed. Since then I've had a part in creating a wide-ranging list of works, including the innovative cinematic comic, Somerset Holmes, again with Bruce Jones and April Campbell, the heroic space-opera, Strikeforce:Morituri, written by Peter Gillis, and the award-winning Astro City with Kurt Busiek. My more recent credits include J. Michael Straczynski's Rising Stars, Green Lantern: Legacy, with Bill Sienkiewicz, contributions to New 52 Action Comics #2, and a six-issue stint on the New 52 Phantom Stranger.
I'm pleased to see Astro City being published again, with the opportunity to revisit old characters, as well as create new ones in the world's ever-expanding pantheon. I'm also working on an original graphic novel, El Jaguár, involving a coyote, an immigrant smuggler, who escorts his clients through the land of the dead in their desperate gamble to be reborn into a better life. On a completely different note, I'm in the process of creating a newspaper strip, 'You Can't Always Get What You Want,' a comic look at the working class side of suburbia.
Thomas Yeates was part of the first graduating class from The Kubert School. His first published comics work was "Preacher" a five-page backup feature in Sgt. Rock #312 (Jan. 1978). He provided spot illustrations for a Batman prose story in Detective Comics #500 (March 1981) written by Walter B. Gibson, longtime writer of The Shadow. Yeates and Jack C. Harris briefly revived Claw the Unconquered as a backup feature in The Warlord #48-49. "Dragonsword" was a backup feature by Paul Levitz and Yeates which appeared in The Warlord #51-54 (Nov. 1981-Feb. 1982). In 1982, Yeates and writer Martin Pasko revived Swamp Thing in a new series titled Saga of the Swamp Thing. Timespirits was created by Stephen Perry and Yeates for the Epic Comics line. He drew the Universe X: Beasts and Universe X: Cap one-shots for Marvel in 2001. On April 1, 2012, Yeates began drawing the Prince Valiant comic strip, replacing Gary Gianni. Yeates collaborated with Sergio Aragones on the Groo vs. Conan crossover for Dark Horse Comics in 2014.
VINCENT VAN DAHL
Vincent, Tangella and Mr. Livingston host the 21st-century version of Creature Features, the classic San Francisco Bay Area horror-host program made famous by Bob Wilkins in the 70's and John Stanley in the 80's. Host Vincent Van Dahl, former frontman for 90's metal band "Prince of Darkness" retired from music a few years back to pursue a quiet life in Bodega Bay at his newly-acquired home, The Poulter Manor. From this haunted mansion, he is joined by his housemate Tangella and his valet Mr. Livingston to deliver the best guests and the worst movies to the entire Bay Area and around the world.
Tom produced the award winning documentary films "Remembering Playland at the Beach" and "Watch Horror Films, Keep America Strong . He is the official Creature Features historian/archivist. Tom's latest film "Haunted Sonoma County" was released in October of last year. Tom is also now a Director on the current "Creature Features" TV show.
Oliff broke into professional comics by attending comic book conventions and meeting people. At one convention he met publisher Byron Preiss. Preiss gave Oliff his first major coloring job (on a Shadowjack story in The Illustrated Roger Zelazny). More work with Preiss's publications followed, including a job on a Howard Chaykin graphic novel, which in turn led to Oliff getting his first Marvel Comics' job, coloring Bill Sienkiewicz's first Moon Knight story in The Hulk! magazine. From there Oliff went on to color hundreds of titles in a variety of coloring formats.
In addition to coloring thousands of comic pages for all sorts of companies, Oliff has written two comic books, Armature and Armature: Darkpark and Lightworld, and is currently writing the third in his series. The Armature character first appeared in ads in Spawn and Youngblood comics, and in a back-up story in issue 14 of The Maxx. From 2003 to the present, Armature has been a weekly comic strip in Oliff's local newspaper, the Independent Coast Observer.
In 2005, Oliff collaborated with Cheri Carlstedt on a history of his hometown, Point Arena, California. The Early Days of Point Arena: A Pictorial History of the City and Township was published by Olyoptics. He also edits the Mendocino County Historical Society newsletter.
Jon Provost is a national treasure. The check shirt and jeans he wore for seven years as Timmy on "Lassie" hang in The Smithsonian next to Archie Bunker's chair. "Lassie" continues to air in 50 countries and Jon receives letters and email from fans of all ages around the world.
Jon was already a seasoned professional when he won the role of Timmy at age seven. He was not even three when cast as Jane Wyman and Sterling Hayden’s son in "So Big". During his career as a child actor and teen heart throb, he worked with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood: Grace Kelly and Bing Crosby in "The Country Girl", Natalie Wood and Robert Redford in "This Property is Condemned", Rod Steiger and Anita Ekberg in "Back From Eternity", Clint Eastwood in "Escapade in Japan", Kurt Russell in "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" and on television with Kim Novak, Jack Benny, James Garner and even with that famous talking horse, Mr. Ed.
By the time Jon Provost was nineteen, he'd worked in film and television for sixteen years. With a strong desire to try something new, he headed for Northern California and college. The beauty of the wine country seduced him and Jon never returned to L.A., preferring eventually to raise a family in Sonoma County. Of his many accomplishments, he is most proud of his children, Ryan and Katie; and he is over the moon about his 4-year-old granddaughter, Juliana.
Jon has also earned a nationwide reputation as a philanthropist, giving his time to: children's hospitals, animal shelters, and humane societies and, closest to his heart, Canine Companions for Independence, providing service dogs to the handicapped. He served on their Board of Governors for close to 25 years. And he's received many awards, among them, The Motion Picture Council's award for Outstanding Contribution as a Humanitarian for his dedication in helping the physically challenged, the Allen Ludden Humanitarian Award presented by Betty White and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Youth in Film Association.
In 1990, Jon returned to television as Timmy all grown up in "The New Lassie" with Dee Wallace. He received a Genesis Award for Outstanding Television in a Family Series for a story he penned for the show focusing on the inhumane treatment of research animals. In recent years, Jon was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and added the internet to his resume, directing and hosting short videos about dogs and cats for a Purina website. 2008 marked Jon’s 50th anniversary as Timmy. He celebrated with the release of his autobiography, TIMMY'S IN THE WELL which he wrote with his wife, Hollywood writer Laurie Jacobson. He is currently writing a cookbook: TIMMY'S IN THE KITCHEN. Recently, Jon signed 4000 Timmy & Lassie photos for military K-9 teams currently serving our nation in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Still a sought-after celebrity guest, Jon appears at fund-raisers, comic cons, pet expos and special events throughout the year.
