Agent 1.22 Comicbook Image

Angelo Panetta, David Martin, Tom Dheere: Co-Creators

In 2006 co-creator Angelo Panetta, a sound engineer and composer, found David Martin, a UK-based computer animator, in an effort to add some of his scores to existing animation to develop his demo reel. Since they couldn’t find a good fit, they decided to create some new material. They put their heads together and came up with a female action hero to animate and put some music to, but they needed a story. That’s when Angelo contacted Tom Dheere, a writer, to come up with a short story to give their hero something to do. Thus, Agent 1.22 was born! The story, originally named “Project: T.E.R.R.A”, was conceived as a 20-episode web series. When they determined they couldn’t produce or monetize a web series, the project was in limbo for a while. Dheere suggested it could make a good comic book, and shortly thereafter the project was back on track. Renamed “Agent 1.22”, the comic is currently being produced in conjunction with writer Stephan Nilson, and 3D artist Doug Shuler.

Douglas Shuler: Artist

Douglas Shuler, Fantasy and Science-Fiction Illustrator, has been painting professionally for over 20 years and has worked for numerous game and media companies, including TSR, Wizards of the Coast, Lucasfilm, Paramount Pictures and the Sci-Fi Channel. His work for Magic; The Gathering earned him worldwide exposure that has since catapulted him into several new arenas, including digital art, video game development and portraiture. A jack-of-all-trades when it comes to creating an image, Douglas is equally comfortable using pencils, acrylics, airbrush, oil paints and even computers... all in the interest of making a stronger image.
