Rick Overwater has been a professional writer for over 20 years. He’s covered music and entertainment for a major urban daily and Alberta’s entertainment weeklies, is an established agriculture writer, has churned out reams of ad copy, and has showed up everywhere from the Globe and Mail to Snowboard Canada. A veteran in the communications field, he also pays a lot of bills as a corporate copywriter – but his heart belongs to fiction in all its glorious, improbable weirdness.

Cam Hayden is an artist, musician, and sometimes writer and a member of the Panel One Collective. He takes most of his inspiration from the classic MAD/EC artists. His works include:
Futility!, B-Movie Garbage!, Death Metal Suck!, Shitty Stories, Red Flag!, CCF Comics!, and Beverly!, a gruesome reimagining of the Beverly Hillbillies with zombies.
