Recent praise for the Grafenveer series:
"Christian St. Pierre is a real rising star illustrator. His dark vision and creativity is reminiscent of early Berni Wrightson. Keep an eye on this guy because he's drawing stuff that will scare the crap out of you."
Buddy Scalera
After Hours Press

“ I really enjoy reading this story! With Grafenveer’s three dimensional characters, stark artwork, and stirring dialog, I can hardly wait until the next issue to see where it all takes me!”
Prof. William H. Foster III
Comic Book Historian

I would like to thank both Buddy and Prof. Foster for their continued support and encouragement.
