Welcome to SPOTLIGHT, a new gallery in which we showcase random, often lesser known works by the artists and creatives in our midst. We hope you enjoy the exhibition!
This week, we shine our spotlight on...
If you’ve been around the comic book scene the last 45 years, you’ve, no doubt, read or seen Rick Burchett’s work… whether it was writing, pencilling or inking. He’s worked with a list of companies that includes DC Comics, Marvel Comics, First Comics, AC Comics, Archie, Capital Comics, Atomic Pulp and more, on numerous titles like Batman, Blackhawk, Black Hood, Justice League, Green Lantern, She-Hulk, Spider-Man, Kid Colt, Jinx, the Phantom, Gravedigger… and that’s just a smattering! He’s an award-winning artist who has spent years not only as a comic book creator, but as an illustrator and storyboard artist. Online, he and Greg Rucka created the Lady Sabre comic strip and he’s worked on such comic strips as Dick Tracy and Funky Winkerbean, and storyboarded shows like Justice League Unlimited. Here is just a small sampling of Rick's abundant, creative output...
Eric James poured out the best years of his life in the Deep South, managing a public radio station, freelancing as a sound designer, and eventually working as a photographer and videographer. In 2017, after finally acknowledging the Luddite within, he packed his bags and headed back home to St. Louis, where he turned his attention to his first love—painting. Now, he spends countless hours playing catch-up, learning to properly hold a brush, and swindling free art lessons from his dear and patient friends. With much creative input from Paul and Don, Eric also maintains the High Adventure Comics website. You can find more of Eric’s artwork on his website, at:

Although semi-retired now, Bill still handles Photoshop design and Prepress for his wife’s lighting company.
