About the creators: 

Kasey Lansdale is the author of several short stories & novellas from Harper Collins, Titan Books, & others. Her collection, TERROR IS OUR BUSINESS, co-written with her father, was lauded by Publisher’s Weekly as “storytelling that delightfully takes on a lighter and sharper edge.” Lansdale is the editor of assorted anthology collections and her collaboration, THE COMPANION was adapted for the 2019 TV remake of Shudder TV’s, CREEPSHOW. Lansdale’s voice can be heard on numerous audio and VO productions including Stan Lee’s REFLECTIONS, George R.R. Martin’s ACES ABROAD.

Joe R. Lansdale is the internationally bestselling author of more than fifty novels, including the popular, long-running Hap and Leonard series. Many of his cult classics have been adapted for television and film, most famously the films Bubba Ho-Tep and Cold in July and the Hap and Leonard series on Sundance TV and Netflix. Lansdale has written numerous screenplays and teleplays and has won the Edgar Award, ten Stoker Awards, and too many others to list. He has also been designated a World Horror Grandmaster. Lansdale and his wife Karen live in East Texas, like many of the characters he writes about.

Daniele Serra is an Italian illustrator. Three-time winner of the British Fantasy Award as Best Artist (2012, 2017 & 2021) and finalist at the World Fantasy Award 2021, his work includes covers, internal illustrations and comic adaptations for such highly esteemed authors as Stephen King, Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell, Joe R. Lansdale and Joyce Carol Oates.
His main influences and inspiration come from the world of weird and horror literature from H.P. Lovecraft and William H. Hodgson, Ridley Scott’s films, Japanese horror and the works of Clive Barker.
Through his keen fascination with horror fiction, dating back to before his career started, he soon established his own distinctive style. Playing on striking contrasts between bright colours and darker tones, his work blends curves and shadows to create deeply atmospheric artworks, for the most part using watercolours, as well as Indian ink and charcoal.
As a comic artist he has worked with DC Comics (Pray for death, by Nicholas Doan), Image Comics (Fade to Black by Jeff Mariotte), BOOM! Studios (Clive Barker’s Hellraiser: Bestiary, Vv.Aa.) , Titan Comics (Dark Souls Vv.Aa.), Seraphim INC (Clive Barker’s Hellraiser Anthology Vol. 1-2, Vv.Aa.), SST Publications (I tell you, it’s love, also in Italian for BD Comics under the title Fidati è amore, based on a story by Joe R. Lansdale), Mondadori (Murder Ballads, by Micol Beltramini), Bonelli (Gentleman’s Hotel based on a story by Joe R. Lansdale). He was behind the artwork for all three volumes of Stephen King’s Tommyknockers (PS Publishing). Daniele’s own art book was published by PS Publishing, with an interface by Clive Barker.
He has illustrated more than 300 novel covers released by labels all around the world. Amongst these, certain collaborations stand out, including those with Clive Barker, J. R. Lansdale, Paul Tremblay, Gwendolyn Kiste, Tim Lebbon, Josh Malerman, Stephen Graham Jones and publishers such as PS Publishing, Thunderstorm Books, Dark Region Press, SST Publishing, Cemetery Dance, Buchheim Verlag, Raw Dog Screaming Press, Season of Mist, Fanucci, Solferino, Corbaccio e Sperling and Kupfer.
His work was also used for the scenography of the film adaptation of “Cell” by Stephen King, directed by Tod Williams and starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. He also provided the illustrations for the opening and closing credits for Yoshiki Takahashi’s film, Rageaholic (Kokuei Company).
A musician with a keen interest in music in general, he has also worked on a number of album covers and sleeve designs for bands such as Shining (IX, Season of Mist), :wumpscut: (Madman- Szpital Box, Beton Kopf Media), So Hideous (Laurestine, Prosthetic Records) e Hapax (Exile, Swiss Dark NIghts).
Daniele lives on a Mediterranean island, in his house-studio with his wife, his cats, various exotic insects and a vast collection of horror movies and books.

Tom Napolitano’s balloons and onomatopoeias have appeared in many comics since 2015 for publisher such as DC, Comixology Originals, Dark Horse, Dynamite, Humanoids, Valiant, and Image on titles like Batman: Last Knight on Earth, Wonder Woman Evolution, We Have Demons, Kaya, The Closet and so many more. He’s also appeared as a colorist for Tales of the Nightwatchman and back-up stories in Image’s Savage Dragon. Additionally, his illustrations and artwork have graced the pages of Ahoy Comics, Gravely Unusual Magazine and Dead Sky Publishing.
