Scott Snyder is a multiple award-winning and bestselling American writer known for his 2006 short story collection Voodoo Heart, and his work in comic books, including American Vampire, Detective Comics, Batman, Batman: Gates of Gotham and Swamp Thing. Snyder graduated from Brown University in 1998 with a degree in creative writing, and then worked at Walt Disney World for about a year. Snyder's Disney World stint strongly influenced his writing; he later recalled, "it did a world of good for my writing. Snyder received his MFA from Columbia University in 2002. His first collection of stories, Voodoo Heart, was published by the Dial Press in June 2006 to highly positive reviews. The collection received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Booklist, and was a Kirkus Reviews "Hot Debut" of the year. Stephen King picked two of the included stories"Wreck" and "Dumpster Tuesday"for the 2007 The Best American Short Stories anthology shortlist. Voodoo Heart was shortlisted for The Story Prize in 2006. In 2009, Snyder began writing for Marvel Comics. His first foray into the genre was a one-shot focusing on the first Human Torch, part of Marvel's 70th anniversary celebrations. Since September 2011, Snyder has been writing both Batman and a new Swamp Thing ongoing series as part of The New 52, DC Comics' company-wide relaunch of all of its titles. Snyder will co-write Talon, a spin-off of the "Court of Owls" storyline in Batman, which will focus on a rogue Talon from the Court. In 2013 his title Batman Vol. 2: The City of Owls (the New 52) made The New york Times Best Seller List. Batman - Death of the Family Mask made the New York Times bestseller list in 2014.

Gregory Capullo is an American comic book artist and penciller, best known for his work on Quasar, X-Force, Angela, and Spawn. Greg Capullo also published his own creator-owned comic, The Creech, published through Image Comics. These were two three-issue miniseries. Apart from comics, Capullo has been involved in several projects such as pencilling for the Korn album Follow the Leader and the Disturbed album, Ten Thousand Fists, and being part of the crew who worked on the animated sequences in the 2002 film The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys. Capullo began work for Marvel Comics where he worked on Quasar, X-Force, and What If?. He worked with Marvel Comics for three years on various works. Todd McFarlane who co-founded Image Comics, noticed Capullo�s work on X-Force, and convinced him to become the penciller on McFarlane�s comic, Spawn. Capullo's first issue of the book was #16, then took over as pencil artist with issue #26. Capullo has since done the over art and pencils for many Image publications, including various Spawn tie-ins and variants, and Capullo�s own miniseries, The Creech. Capullo helped McFarlane in creating the artwork now seen on the two Halo 3-themed controllers. Capullo provides layouts for Image's Haunt, which debuted in October 2009. Capullo left the ongoing Haunt title in order to take on the art duties on Batman as part of DC Comics' 2011 company-wide title relaunch, The New 52, which paired him with writer Scott Snyder. His title Batman Vol. 2: The City of Owls (the New 52) made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2013.
