Greg Rucka was born in San Francisco and raised on the Central Coast of California, in what is commonly referred to as "Steinbeck Country." He began his writing career in earnest at the age of 10 by winning a county-wide short-story contest, and hasn't let up since. He graduated from Vassar College with an A.B. in English, and from the University of Southern California's Master of Professional Writing program with an M.F.A. He is the author of nearly a dozen novels, six featuring bodyguard Atticus Kodiak, and three featuring Tara Chace, the protagonist of his Queen & Country series. Additionally, he has penned several short-stories, countless comics, and the occasional non-fiction essay. In comics, he has had the opportunity to write stories featuring some of the world's best-known characters--Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman--as well as penning several creator-owned properties himself, such as Whiteout and Queen & Country, both published by Oni Press. His work has been optioned several times over, and his services are in high-demand in a variety of creative fields as a story-doctor and creative consultant. Greg resides in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, author Jennifer Van Meter, and his two children. He thinks the biggest problem with the world is that people aren't paying enough attention. Justin Greenwood is knee-deep in a lifelong love affair with comic books. Born and raised in the Northern California Bay Area, he attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and graduated with a BFA in illustration. His first professional work was with Oni Press, contributing to series like Wasteland and Resurrection, as well as projects like Masks and Mobsters, Ghost Town, and Continuum: The War Files for various other publishers. In those very rare occasions when he is not drawing, he can be found running around the East Bay with his wife Melissa and their dual wildlings, tracking down small produce markets and high intensity card games with equal vigor. Ryan Hill lives in Portland, Oregon and has worked in comics in some form or another for over a decade. He's been coloring for the last few years and hopes he's good at it. He knows Dex tends to roam around Alberta a lot but thinks at some point she should try drinking North around 50th and Division 'cause that's his favorite bar.
