I’m Tanya, or Lil-t if you ask my brothers, but why would you? I just recently began working at Skybound a little over a month ago. As my first “grown up” job, Skybound has proved to be such a fun environment to come to everyday with such brilliant people that I get to call co-workers (I’m still fangirling a bit).
I guess you could say comics are in my genetics. My grandfather, Frank Thorne, brought Red Sonja back to life in her Marvel Feature and also created his own characters; most notably Ghita of Alizarr for Fantagraphic Books. His dedication and imagination still inspire me to this day. After enduring too many harsh winters in my hometown in Pennsylvania, I set out for LA to pursue my aspirations in entertainment.

Skybound.com: When we asked artist Todd Nauck if there were any Easter Eggs in the first 10 issues of INVINCIBLE UNIVERSE, imagine our surprise when he sent us this list! Now we'll hand it off to Todd, who explains how it all began.
Todd Nauck: Back when I was a youngster dreaming of the day I'd break into drawing comics, I noticed Todd McFarlane would hide Felix the Cat in his issues of Amazing Spider-Man. Art Adams would do the same hiding Gumby in his X-Men comics. So that got me to thinking. What would I hide in my comics once I start working in the biz? I decided I'd hide Easter Eggs of my favorite TV show/obsession "Mystery Science Theater 3000"!
I've done this in almost every single comic I've drawn. There can be anywhere from as few as one to as many as 9-10 MST3K Easter Eggs in any given Todd Nauck comic. I hide other types of Easter Eggs as well: family and friends, references to other TV shows, favorite bands, etc
Here's a list of the Easter Eggs I've hidden throughout my run on Invincible Universe:
Issue 1, Page 7, Panel 1: The child drawing was done by my wife left handed.
Issue 1, Page 12, Panel 4: MST on screen.
Issue 1, Page 13, Panel 5: MST3K on tablet screen.
Issue 1, Page 15, Panel 4: MST on screen behind Robot.
