Gerry Duggan received the education he needed to write from a steady diet of comic books and Late Night With David Letterman. He didn't know that...so he wasted a ton of money on a pricey diploma from Emerson College in Boston. After graduating, he arrived in Los Angeles and hooked up almost immediately with Brian Posehn. Together, they've written Marvel NOW!'s Deadpool, The Simpsons and The Last Christmas, the true story of Santa Claus after the apocalypse. Both he and artist Phil Noto earned Eisner Award nominations for The Infinite Horizon, a re-imagining of The Odyssey in a dystopian future. He also counts Nova and Hulk among his roster of Marvel titles. Brian Posehn was born a long time ago and fell in love with comic books at a very young age. He decided to wait to write them until he was in his forties. Before embarking on a career in comic-book writing, he floated through a series of odd jobs - including standup comedy, TV writing and film and sitcom acting. Since arriving at Marvel, he feels he's found his true calling, but will continue to do "the other crap for fun." Posehn's collaborations with Gerry Duggan include The Last Christmas, a Jaws parody for The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror comics, some screenplays and TV ideas you'll never see and a bay they're raising together in the basement of a local abandoned sanitarium. Artist Salva Espin worked in animation and videogame design before making his Marvel debut on World War Hulk: Damage Control; he also provided cover and interior artwork for Wolverine: First Class and Incredible Hercules early in his Marvel career. Espin has since been the series artist on Exiles with writer Jeff Parker, Generation Hope with Kieron Gillen and Deadpool with Daniel Way.
