About the Author

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.

Brian Hurtt got his start in comics working on Greg Rucka's Queen & Country. This was followed by art duties on several projects including Three Strikes, Queen & Country: Declassified, and Steve Gerber's critically acclaimed series Hard Time. In 2006, Brian teamed with Cullen Bunn to create the Prohibition-era monster-noir sensation The Damned. The two found that their unique tastes and storytelling sensibilities were well-suited to one another and were eager to continue that relationship. Brian lives and works in St. Louis, Missouri.
