Dustin S. – Born in a basement under a manor and buried not long after, Dustin awoke some 600 years later out of the dirt. Now a rotting corpse, he wears a skull mask to hide the decay, and after reading some comics he found in a trash bin, decided that’s what he wanted to do. Inspired by horror and madness, Dustin is a modern day underground cartoonist, aiming to draw outside of the norm when it comes to webcomics. A fan of horror, heavy metal, and cartoons, it shows through his work, his main comic being Mad Becky.

Amberley Griffin contributed the story “The Heart of a Monster” to episode MPB03. She says:
“I am Amberley and I don’t know what I should write here. I’ll just write a bunch of rando things to fill in the space. Puppies. Dinosaurs probably didn’t roar. Otters are the cutest creatures on the planet. If you like Brussel sprouts you are wrong. Popsicle. I eat peanut butter from the jar. I also worry too much for the safety of bugs. And apparently I write things and make art and animate the inanimate.”
Amberley creates amazing stop motion animations! Check out her Youtube channel.
