Mike Scrase – Writer
Mike was born in Nijmagen, The Netherlands. He lives with his fiancée in Bristol, UK: the city where every day is Talk Like a Pirate Day. In the past he’s mainly written for comic anthologies like The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel and Cats Committing Crimes.
He is a visually impaired writer with dark sensibilities, but not without a sense of humour. His work often includes themes of disability, mental health, holding authority to account, and challenging societal norms.
San Espina – Artist
San is an Argentinian born artist whose work is often in black & white: giving it a thrillingly underground edge. He’s been drawing independent comics for 20 years, and has worked on SiscoKid for Moonstone, and Ageless for Celiber, among other titles.
He lists his influences as Argentina locals Alberto Breccia and Lucas Nine, as well as Travis Chares, Moebius, and Juan Gimenes.
Ferran Delgado – Letterer
Ferran is a Portuguese letterer who has worked on both Marvel and DC comic books.
Vanessa Cardinali – Cover Artist
Vanessa is an Italian artist who illustrated Zip’s dramatically colourful alternate cover. Her backlog of work boasts titles published by Image Comics and she is known for her work on The Golem of Venice Beach in collaboration with Bill Sienkiewicz and Jae Lee.
