About the author (2003)

Bill Willingham never fought a desperate and losing battle in a good cause, never contributed to society in a meaningful way, and hasn t lived a life of adventure, but he s had a few moments of near adventure. At some point in his life Bill learned how to get paid for telling scurrilous lies to good people, and he s been doing it ever since. He lives in the wild and frosty woods of Minnesota with a dog and a cat he hasn t met yet.

Mark Buckingham is presently an artist on Marvel's Peter Parker, Spider-Man. Previously, he juggled his time among almost every book in DC Comics' Vertigo line (most notably on Sandman's sister Death) and Marvel's Dr. Strange, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Generation X. He is also renowned for his experimental artwork on Eclips Comics' Miracleman. "Bucky," as he is often known, is honorary chair of the Comic Creators Guild and co-organizer of the United Kingdom's National Comics Awards. He lives with his wife, Gail, and three cats in the Victorian seaside town of Clevedon, England.

Co-writer Bill Mumy is most recognized for his work as an actor, for roles in such favorites as Lost in Space, The Twilight Zone, and Babylon 5. As a musician, he has had success both as a solo performer and as a member of Barnes & Barnes. As a writer, he has worked in prose, in TV (as co-creator of Space Cases), and comic books. Co-writer Miguel Ferrer's acting has gained him attention through playing villains in such big screen works as RoboCop and Mulan and playing hard-working but beleaguered characters on the small screen in Crossing Jordan and Twin Peaks. With Mumy, he co-wrote the Marvel comics miniseries Comet Man and the graphic novel The Dreamwalker. Artist Steve Leialoha is not known for his acting, but they let him make comics anyway. In fact, they've given him multiple Eisner Awards for doing so. His work has been a strong presence ranging from the 1980s Spider-Woman to the recent hit Fables.
