About the Author
Jay Lynch, who wrote Mo and Jo’s story, loved to read superhero comics like Plastic Man when he was a kid. When he wasn’t reading comic books, he would draw his own cartoon characters on the sidewalk in front of his house—then hide in the bushes to hear what other kids had to say about his drawings! Jay grew up to become a legendary cartoonist and has helped create many popular humor products, including Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids.
Dean Haspiel used to read Fantastic Four and Shazam! when he was a kid. He admits that when he was young, he used to fight with his brother, too: “All siblings have a healthy rivalry, and so did we.” He has illustrated Pulitzer Prize-wining author Michael Chabon’s The Escapist and drawn superheroes for Marvel and DC Comics. He created his own comic character, Billy Dogma, and is the founder of the webcomic collective ACT-I-VATE.
