- Gregory Price, Illustrator -
Gregory Price is a self-taught artist who has been in the comic industry since 1994. He has worked in many mediums: from pencils, to acrylic paints, to digital colors. Logo design, movie posters, album covers and graphic design are all part of his talents. However, painting covers for books and magazines has always been his favorite forte.

- Glowing Eyes Media -
Glowing Eyes Media was formed, as Trinity Comics, in 2003, by creators Frank Dirscherl, John Jett and Craig Shepard (later joined by Jim Taylor) to facilitate publication of the character The Wraith Dread Avenger of the Underworld in comic book form, as the previous publisher had gone into bankruptcy. Frank had created the character in 1998, and while the artwork was being created for the comic series, he wrote and published the first novel in what has now become The Wraith Dread Avenger of the Underworld series. While Jett and Shepard departed some time later, Taylor is still involved from time-to-time, and Frank has been joined by artist Gregory Price, who provides all art for Glowing Eyes Media from 2021 onwards.
The comic book series debuted over the course of the next few years, and the book series grew as well, with such titles as Valley of Evil, Crossfire, Cult of the Damned, Cry of the Werewolf and Vendetta following suit. In 2018/19, Trinity Comics embarked on a sweeping program of merchandising based on The Wraith, such as maquettes, action figures, jigsaw puzzles, clothing and more.
2020 saw the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic, which slowed progression of Trinity's plans (as well as everyone else's), and 2021 saw the company reborn as Glowing Eyes Media. While the books and comics are available from a variety of sites online (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Audible etc.), all merchandising is available solely direct from Glowing Eyes Media.
The future looks bright, and the sky is the limit!
