“Anomaly,” illustrated by Haberlin and Geirrod Van Dyke, is set in the year 2717 with most humans living in off-world colonies and a single corporation, the Conglomerate, routinely conquering other planets to steal their resources. Brittenham and Haberlin worked with academicians in philosophy, religion and science to develop the story’s cultural landscape and planetary functions based on actual historical and scientific facts.

Brittenham has worked closely with Pixar, DreamWorks Animation and Illumination Entertainment and has served on the boards of both Pixar and DreamWorks Animation.  Haberlin’s career includes working at Top Cow Prods. and Todd MacFarlane Prods., founding Haberlin Studios and co-founding Avalon Studios.
