SPARROW @sparrowx.carter lives in a trailer in the plush hamlet of Phoenicia, New York with his wife Violet Snow. He has published 11 books, including Small Happiness & Other Epiphanies (Monkfish) and The Princeton Diary (Vinal). His poems and essays have appeared in the New Yorker, the New York Times, the Sun, and Reptiles of the Mind. Each month Sparrow writes an art review for Chronogram. He is currently running for President for the ninth time. Sparrow plays slide flute in the neurasthenic pop group Truffles.

ANN “Annie” NOCENTI @annienocenti has written hundreds of Marvel Comics. Her graphic novels include Ruby Falls (with artist Flavia Biondi) and The Seeds (with artist David Aja) for Berger Books/Dark Horse. Her comics, journalism and films can be found at

JACK MORELLI has been in comics for the last 45 years, on staff at Marvel for 13 years in both the bullpen and editorial, then as a freelance letterer, logo designer and author for Marvel, DC, Archie (where he won the 2015 Harvey Award) and Image Comics. He also does commissions for the locally-based Catskill Comics.

ELIOT BROWN worked on staff at Marvel in almost every capacity, from Production to Editorial. While on staff he was involved with the Marvel Universe encyclopedic project, contributing writing and technical artwork – so much so that he is nick-named “Mr. Technical.” More recently, Eliot has been associated with The Punisher Armory and The Iron Manual, as well as The G. I. Joe Order of Battle #4 and Marvel’s first coffee table book, Five Fabulous Decades of the World’s Greatest Comics, contributing almost all of the photographs.
