Some months ago Darby Kline (company namesake) and her father Jeff Kline (Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises co-writer) met Joe St. Pierre, writer/artist of the comic, The New Zodiax. St. Pierre "commissioned" a sketch from Darby of Cricket, a character from his book, which she happily drew. Fast forward to now. Darby and company are thrilled to find her Cricket sketch in the back of the latest Zodiax trade!
