Stefanie Dioso, Sorceress Supreme (owner), is a 2nd generation Filipina American, began her career in marketing and became a Registered Nurse/Clinical IT professional but she has always had a passion for comic books and vinyl figure collectibles.  You will find her communicating with publishers, artists, writers, researching new products for market distribution and honing her drawing skills on blank comic books.   

After managing several successful marketing campaigns for large corporations, such as AT&T, Coca-Cola, and General Motors, Christopher Hicks had a decision to make, continue marketing for other people's coroporations or use his skills to create something for his family. What started as a hobby (and as a way to afford his wife, Stefanie's collectible needs) has now become a full time operation as VP and shipping/distribution.

Chris and Stefanie's love of anime and superheroes is also shared with their two children whose hobbies include reading and drawing heroes as well as cosplay.  

Finally, we have two more members of the family who  share the names of comic book characters, Loki and Thor.  

Now that you know us, we'd like to know you so please help us with our goal we have set.
