About Silver Phoenix Entertainment
From deep inside the seedy underbelly of the independent comics scene comes the Silver Phoenix Crew…
a rag-tag band of bloodthirsty, pencil-wielding maniacs lead by the Shatneresque visionary, Charles D. Moisant. Moisant’s mission – to lead a crusade in the name of righteous storytelling and to present pugnacious parables to the graphic gourmand.

BRIAN K. MORRIS is a prolific full time freelance writer and independent publisher. His novels run the gamut from contemporary fantasy (Conflict, Bloodshot: The Coldest Warrior, Vulcana: Rebirth of the Champion, The Original Skyman Battles the Master of Steam) to horror/humor (Santastein). He is also a writer/editor for Silver Phoenix Entertainment on The History of the Police in America and The Haunted Tales of Bachelor's Grove as well as the chief scripter for the adventures of real life gothic horror illusionist Master Ron Fitzgerald and Kadrolsha Ona, The Queen of the Paranormal.

Michael "Doc" Reidy Born in Montreal Quebec in '55. He's the 'old man' of the staff. Roamed the streets and alleys of Chicago as a kid, joined the military, hitchhiked, found a beautiful wife (she found him), settled-in, had three kids, bought a house so forth and so on. He has made a living in the art field over the last twenty years and still loves the comics medium.
John Leach has been keeping his day job for the last 17 years at a major law firm (cannot be named due to antsy administrators) and has been scribbling down his stories, verses and random unsavory thoughts on napkins, paperbags and children's placemats at Denny's during his frequent stretches of alcohol fueled dementia and his occasional moments of clarity.
After disapearing for 20 years, somewhere between Los Angeles, Chicago and a madman's dream, John googled the name "Charles Moisant", a former classmate from animation class in college, and discovered that his old schoolroom chum was alive, breathing, and publishing comic books. With Charles's generous help, John can now hold a pen again, hold his bladder, and has discovered the importance of wearing pants. Though John's prose in Mystery Manor is drenched in disturbing and lurid subject matter, his screenplays, children's books and musicals he's written over the years are also disturbing and lurid. If anyone has a buck fifty to invest in a musical he will gladly accept your donations.
John currently resides on the North side of Chicago with his girlfriend, dead beat brother, insane dog and the anguished spirit of his recently deceased cat Peckerwood. If anyone can find an exorcist to purge the spirit of his dead cat as well as his dead beat brother please call 1-800-555-help!
