MATT SHEEAN & MALACHI WARD
Matt Sheean and Malachi Ward are the co-creators of Ancestor and Expansion. Previously they served as artists for Brandon Graham’s Prophet series for Image Comics, and have provided artwork for Star Trek: Starfleet Academy for IDW and Burn The Orphanage for Image. Matt has contributed to Adventure Time for Boom, Peow Studio’s Time Capsule anthology and published the acclaimed short comic Fugue. In 2016 Malachi released his first collection of short comics, From Now On, including work for Fantagraphics, NoBrow, The Best American Comics series, Top Shelf, and Study Group Magazine.
Matt and Malachi’s method of collaboration is unique in the world of comics, blurring the line between traditional roles such as writer, penciller, inker, colorist and letterer. The two creators work on these elements together from the conception of the idea all the way through to sending files to print.

A short fantastical story in which an ancient god appears and wreaks havoc on the occupants of walled city.
"Matt Sheean’s Fugue ... is open, imponderous, and sylphlike belying his declarations which need to be pieced out as they are pieced together." - Daniel Elkin, Your Chicken Enemy
