Jason went to college in Buffalo, New York, where he met his wife Rebecca. They both help organize the Boston-area comics convention MICE, and enjoy hiking together through the Middlesex Fells. Zack Giallongo is a teacher, podcaster, and cartoonist with several books under his belt including Star Wars Doodles, Ewoks: Shadows of Endor, the Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue series, and his original graphic novel, Broxo, which was a New York Times bestseller. He forages for food in the sometimes-quite-brisk landscapes of New England.
