ZAY ARTS

Creator of Renisha + CJay

As long as I can remember I have always wanted to be a cartoonist. I’ve created comics ever since the age of 7 and making my comic ideas since the age of 12. All throughout grade school I would doodle on my school notes and create these fascinating characters of all different types. Middle school is where I discovered Anime. I remember just like it was yesterday, sketching images of Sailor Moon with Kirby-like eyes because I wasn’t bold enough to take on the challenge of drawing real Anime eyes. I began making my own comics and let kids my age read them, I knew my ideas were interesting when everyone would ask me for more when they finished reading. And this is what pushed me, I’ve drawn and creating stories on my own for 17 years and I doubt I’ll stop now!!!

KEVIN MACKLIN

Author of Certain Reprisal

Growing up in the Washington DC area, Kevin was a constant presence at the local libraries and book stores.

AMANDA ROSS

Author of To Astera, With Love

Amanda Ross is an indie author who writes speculative fiction. In her novels and short stories, Amanda addresses social issues through magical, witchy tales with a little bit of politics and a whole lot of campy humor.


Her first novel, To Astera, With Love tells the story of a Black witch named Mercury who embarks on a cross country roadtrip like no other, with four of his friends by his side. As the group flees Los Angeles for the safety of Astera, a gathering of all witchkind, they battle vampiric cops, evil witches, aggressive humans, and each other as they struggle to make it in one piece.


Amanda likes to think of herself as your neighborhood campy fantasy heaux. When she’s not writing she’s reading the works of other Black fantasy authors or baking her way through The Great British Bake-Off cookbook.

KEEF CROSS

Creator of DayBlack

Growing up being influenced by Ralph Bakshi, Vaugn Bode', Wendy Pini, and Robert Crumb to name a few, really shaped my visual aesthetic, and my approach to creating my comic book, "DayBlack". I found that those underground comics of the 70's always had one foot in sexual raunchiness and drugs, and another foot in social commentary, a combination that fascinated me as a kid. Who knew that in those adult comics I hid from my mother, I would find my individual voice and style.


Working as a tattoo artist for 18 years and counting, was also a huge influence on my unique storytelling perspective. Aside from being a vampire, Merce is about 80% me, and I've found that writing through him has been a great way to air my gripes about my job, and life in general.
