Our Creators

Mark Schmidt

Vince Chuter

Vince is one of the original Co-Owners of Stratum Comics and is a Co-Creator/Co-Writer and Co-Letterer for The Threat as well as original concept and character designers.  A graduate from the Art Institute of Houston his love for art, creativity and the narrative process is a passion, while his appreciation of literature, science and history are the springs he often takes inspiration from.  Comics in some ways have always been a part of his life, having owned and managed several comic stores.  He loves the exchange of ideas that comes with being a part of this industry but would like to see it open up more to independents creators. His idea for Stratum was not only to provide a venue for introducing The Threat to audiences but to help individual creators over come many of the obstacles related to breaking into the industry. This is an idea Mark continues to strive for as he continues to build Stratum Comics as a brand.
