Federal Agent Jack Stone must travel to his hometown, a sleepy little place called Tazewell, Tennessee to bring a criminal back to Los Angeles and back to justice.

Percy Carey got his first lessons in entertainment very early on. He learned from a master, seeing all the ins and outs of production under the eye of Jim Henson. He may have only been five years old when he was on Sesame Street, but Percy took it all in. His mind was already working on his future. He formed an independently owned distribution company, Day by Day Entertainment. Percy has released five albums since returning to the game, including hip-hop's first triple cd as his alter ego MF Grimm. Percy entered the comic world by writing his autobiography under the Vertigo label, a book called Sentences: the Life of MF Grimm. The book was a hit and brought Percy's name into a main stream light. His story was nominated for several Eisners, one of the highest honors in comics. He proudly won two Glyph awards for the story as well. He did work as a journalist for a number of well-established publications, which included several joint ventures with national and international brands, such as Complex Magazine and MTV Splashpage. Since that time, Percy has joined his immense talents with those of Arch Enemy. His vision for the present and the future are one of the most unique in media companies today. His background in promotion, distribution, and product placement allow him to see where the market is going and plan for the world ahead. In true alter ego fashion, by day he handles business on a global level. By night, he works hard, pushing the boundaries of storytelling and digital media. He is a man who, as long as he can still draw breath, will always be working to better himself and his craft. His vision for what is on the horizon helped him to become the clear choice for president of Arch Enemy. Just as a chess match, he is a man who can see many moves ahead. He sees things his opponents never even knew existed. His unique sensibilities regarding all media formats allow him to see integrations and destinations no one else can.
Neil Herndon was destined to be a writer. From an early age, his passion was telling stories and putting word to page. He won the Illinois Young Authors competition several times, attending both state and county conferences. He was published in a young authors' poetry book before he entered his teens. At both Butler University and Columbia College-Hollywood, his focus was writing, a topic that he excelled at. He earned top marks in every class taken on the subject, soon gaining the admiration of his teachers and peers alike. Neil's major strength that set him apart from most others is how to write fantastic characters and craft a brilliant story, how to make it come to life on the page and captivate audiences. With each story he tells, Neil's writing ability only improves, both in quality and in creativity. He constantly pushes himself to be the best, prides himself on being able to tell a story in any genre, and making each one exciting and engaging. Not only does he produce high quality work, but he can do it quickly, sacrificing neither quality nor quantity. His speed allows him to conceive and finish a project in a very short time, shorter than most others. Neil has added another medium to his repertoire, the literary world, where his slate of novels is already growing. His belief that no story, no genre, and no audience is off-limits allows him to be a chameleon, writing for adults, young adults, and children alike. Neil always held on to a simple goal: to tell great stories. That goal has motivated everything he does, and drives him towards greatness. Neil has been spinning tales since he was very young, and now stands to enter the next generation of authors and storytellers, and he's only scratched the surface of possibility…
From rural Tennessee to the bright lights of Los Angeles, William Wilson has come a long way. The journey began in the summer of 1999. With only a pickup truck (which he still owns) and a few dollars to his name, William, along with a few friends, made their way westward to California. After only a few months, William landed an internship with George Clooney's production company and quickly learned the ropes of the entertainment business. Not long after, he was introduced to two of the biggest names in movies, John Carpenter and the late Debra Hill. This relationship led to work on a third installment of the Snake Plissken series, which in turn led to his first major comic book gig, writing for G.I. Joe: Frontline. Armed with an acute business savvy, William formed his company, Arch Enemy Entertainment. From there the projects fell into place and found work with clients like Vin di Bona Productions and Transformers movie star, Tyrese Gibson. The project done with Vin di Bona was featured in Variety and Tyrese Gibson's project, the Image comic, "MAYHEM!," was the first to be published on the iTunes LP. Now, William has added one more goal to his list. He continually works to pay forward his past success by looking for and giving a voice to all of the up and coming artists within his fields.
