AUSTIN ST JOHN Creator/ Writer

At age five, Austin began practicing martial arts. He holds a second

degree black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do and a first degree black belt in

Judo. He loves baseball, sushi, and most importantly, his fans. But

beyond all other aspects of his life by far, Austin is best known for

his role as the Original Red Ranger in every country out side of Japan

in the Power Rangers franchise.

When he began his role as Jason Lee Scott (the Red Ranger in the hit

series “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” and the Gold Ranger in

“Power Rangers Zeo”), he had no idea it would lead him to where he

is today. Very few people have enjoyed the same level of notoriety from a single role than has Austin St. John. Since his time on Power Rangers, he has dedicated his life to his community, country and his fans.

Austin spent 16 years in the Fire Dept as Paramedic running 911 calls to people in need at their worst and some times final hour.  Four of his years as a medic in the Middle East for the War.  He retired in 2014 and re-fell in love with all that the show and its fans represent even more than before!  From Movies, TV, Comicon appearances and providing memorabilia, he has spent his time doing as much as he possibly can for his fans, to whom he attributes his success. The love fans share for the show inspires Austin to always deliver at the highest level. Because of his dedication to his supporters, Austin personally handles each and every transaction at St. John Enterprises and oversees all customer service.

Feel free to browse our wide selection of Power Rangers merchandise and superhero memorabilia and revisit your love for some of your favorite characters. If you have any questions, contact our team at St. John Enterprises.

DJ HALL Interior Artist

My name is Don Jason Hall but you can call me D. J. I’m a Texas native that

currently resides in Colorado. Shortly after high school, I realized college wasn’t

for me and enlisted in the United States Air Force. I served six amazing years. I

met my wife, Stephanie, while in the service and we have two beautiful daughters

named Abigail and Madison. During my time stationed in Las Vegas, Nevada, I

attended my first ever comic con in 2016. I instantly fell in love with this world. I

looked over to my friend and told him that “this is what I wanted to do” after my

enlistment was complete. I separated honorably in 2017 and moved home to

Texas and began drawing every single day in my spare time and haven’t stopped.

I dabbled in Architecture School and even in some video game design classes but

none of that stuck. Along the way, I met some amazing artists and creators that put me on the path to get me to where I am today. I’m thankful for all the opportunities and friendships that have come from me, just simply, chasing a dream.

I am a self-taught artist and have been drawing as far back as I can remember. I love to do traditional artwork; my favorite being color pencil realism. I also love to paint with acrylic, use graphite, ink, marker and anything in between. I do pride myself on being able to use many different mediums and do many different styles of art. I love drawing anything from realism and portraits to cartoons and comic-style art. I’ve recently gotten into digital art and now love it equally as much.

As a freelance artist, I’ve worked on many covers and a few interiors for companies such as Image Comics, Charter Comics, Aequitas Comics and many other various Indie Companies and Titles. My most notable,  recent projects have been a covers for Independent books such as Stray Dogs: Dog Days 2, Don’t Pay the Ferryman, Ferryman Origins, multiple covers for The Disputed Territory, The Detour, The Detour presents…The Hunt, Dreamers of Andalon-Pirates Cove…a comic adaptation of an Amazon Best Selling Novel and winner of the 2021 Independent Press Awards and finally…RedEmpt1on.

For this project, I plan to combine my love for all styles of art into one and give the reader a beautiful set of interior art that does this story justice. I hope my passion and love for what I do shows through in my work and you enjoy what this amazing team has put together.
