Come meet Stef “Sharky” Schultz, June 30th at 7pm. She’ll be signing for her new book ” Misterguy”. Stop by and say hello.

What can be said of Sorry Little Sharky?

Well, for starters, she freely admits that she is not *really* a shark, and in fact, finds human flesh thoroughly unpleasant in terms of consumption. However, Sharky IS a professional fine artist/musician who loves and creates art in multiple forms—whether it be writing and singing her own music, drawing comics like Misterguy, painting horror-inspired abstract landscapes, or designing random posters and t-shirts, rest assured if it CAN be done, that I will suddenly STOP WRITING ABOUT MYSELF IN THE THIRD PERSON…and surely try my hands at it.

“Misterguy” has been with me ever since I could hold writing utensils and not stab my young self in the head with them…HE SIMPLY REMAINED IN SAID HEAD AND JUST NEVER…SHUT…UP. I kindly hope you’ll read and love my new comic, which is full of unnecessary spaceships, harmless  murder attempts, and visits to the sun to explain why the character’s world suddenly turns from black and white to COLOR in the middle of the story—rest assured, it is not without a darn good explanation or two.

Come by for the release party of DUSKRIDERS. Say hello, have a drink, get some grub, party and get your copy of DUSKRIDERS signed by Tree Adams and Josh Zingerman. Wednesday, June 7th at Meltdown Comics.

DUSKRIDERS Synopsis:
Earth is dying. Dublyn Stinson is the toughest chick on the planet. After the mysterious death of her father, Dr. Johnathan Stinson, and the murder of her twin sister Patricia, she forms a three man army, called the Duskriders.

Perceval, a corporate warlord, has colonized the distant planet Terranox, and organized an exodus for the rich and powerful. In doing so, he transforms Earth into a service planet.

The Duskriders strive to continue Dr. Stinson’s scientific work with a controversial new energy source called Rolveron, in an attempt to restore their planet’s autonomy. However, Perceval has ordered the appropriation of all Rolveron and has his own plans to use it to power Terranox. As the Duskridersget closer to Perceval and the Rolveron, they uncover a dark secret.

Tree Adams:
Tree Adams approaches the sound of a wooden spoon mashing potatoes, church bells tolling in Corsica, or air/a signal pushing through a tube mic pre with equal interest. Any of these could inspire a fresh way to tell a story with music, which is what he does. Equally at home conducting a large orchestra, programming beats in the studio, cranking out loud guitar solos in an amphitheater or arranging vocal parts with a gospel choir, Tree lives to create original and unique work for his every project.

Over the past 20 years, Tree’s adventures in film and television have given him the opportunity to collaborate with great talent in diverse styles. Recent projects include a haunting battle score for Jason Rothenberg’s “The 100” (CW.) The score is rife with middle eastern colors and epic orchestral themes. Ken Biller’s international espionage thriller, “Legends” (TNT) features a more minimalist approach combining solo cello and electronic soundscapes. For the John Hertzfeld’s redemption film “Reach Me” (MIllenium Films), a traditional orchestral score. A gritty rock score for “Californication” (Showtime), an urgent cerebral score for the crime drama, “Perception” (TNT) a high energy electronica score for action/thriller “Run” (Millenium Films.) A dusty western score for “Swelter” and hip hop for Denis Leary and Bob Fisher’s comedy “Sirens” (USA).

Tree was somewhat reluctantly immersed in classical piano training at an early age. When he was around 10 years old, he heard Hendrix, at which point he picked up the guitar and found his love o’ the sport. He spent most of the ’90s on the road as the front man for a rock band called the Hatters, who released several records on Atlantic. They were road warriors, touring with bands like the Allman Brothers, Tribe Called Quest, King Sunny Ade and Jimmy Cliff. While in the studio recording the band’s last album, Tree had the opportunity to produce an end title song for a studio feature film and he had his first taste of music as an applied art. He found the process of working to picture exciting and intriguing and when his band dissolved later that year, Tree set out on a new course as a composer.

Since then, Tree has enjoyed collaborating with filmmakers to craft music with storytelling. He says that typically, a composition forms in his head before he even picks up an instrument and often, the centerpiece of an idea will evolve by experimenting with a sound or a piece of gear in the studio in the initial stages of the process. Although his primary skills as a performer are as a singer and a guitarist, he employs a much more expansive palette with his adventures in film and television.

Born in Berkeley, raised in New York City, Tree lives on the east side of Los Angeles with his wife and kids.

Josh Zingerman:
Josh Zingerman is a Los Angeles-based comic book and storyboard artist. He graduated from the Kubert School in 2015 where he was mentored by some of the greatest artists in the industry. His current comic book projects include MEZO: THE RISE OF TZALEKUHL, UNDERCOVER ZOMBIE, and DUSKRIDERS. He has also worked closely with a diverse group of clients including Kobe Bryant, EA, and Mattel. He loves movies, dogs, and traveling the world.
