In addition to our previously announced special guests, we’re very proud to announce the addition of…

Atla Hrafney is a rad gal living in a cold tundra like a frozen Hobbit in the middle of Iceland. From this foraging comes a heck of a lot of free time to create fun stories, which exactly what she does a majority of the time. By day she writes comics such as her contribution to the We’re Still Here anthology with artist Phineas Kadinski, and by night she edits other folk’s works. Some of the comics she’s worked on include the hit webcomic Camellia by Ladypcpx and the graphic novel The Carpet Merchant of Konstantinyya by Remena Ashel Yee.

Steve Orlando writes and produces comics, including VIRGIL (IGN’s best Graphic Novel of 2015), Undertow and stories in the Eisner Award Nominated Outlaw Territory at Image Comics. As well, he launched 2015’s Midnighter and 2016’s Midnighter and Apollo, both nominated for GLAAD awards, and took part in Justice League: Gods and MenBatman and Robin Eternal and most recently launched SupergirlThe Shadow / Batman, Justice League of America and The Unexpected for DC Entertainment, as well as CRUDE for Skybound Entertainment.

Irene Koh is an illustrator, karaoke queen, and red meat enthusiast born in Korea and based out of the SF Bay Area. She has drawn THE LEGEND OF KORRA: TURF WARS for Dark Horse, SECRET ORIGINS: BATGIRL for DC, 1602: WITCH HUNTER ANGELA for Marvel, and TMNT: CASEY & APRIL for IDW, among other things.

Vita Ayala spent years working retail, and night security at a one of the oldest museums in New York City, before taking the plunge and entering the Thunderdome lifestyle that is pursuing a career in writing comics. They have since written for DC Comics (Rebirth Wonder Woman Annual #1, Rebirth Batgirl Annual #1), Dark Horse Comics (Secret Loves of Geeks), and Image Comics (Bitch Planet Triple Feature #4), as well as having a creator owned book, The Wilds, out through Black Mask Studios. They live in New York City with their wife and ridiculous cat-son.

Terry Blas is the illustrator/writer behind the comics Ghetto Swirl and You Say Latino. His work has appeared in Rick and Morty, Regular Show, The Amazing World of Gumball and Adventure Time. He illustrated the drag superhero book, Mama Tits Saves the World. His latest book is a fat camp murder mystery titled: Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom, published by Oni Press.

Who is Nola Brown? Nola is a mystery Nola is trouble. And Nola is supposed to be dead.

Her body was found on a plane that mysteriously fell from the sky as it left a secret military base in the Alaskan wilderness. Her commanding officer verifies she’s dead. The US government confirms it. But Jim “Zig” Zigarowski has just found out the truth: Nola is still alive. And on the run.

Zig works at Dover Air Force Base, helping put to rest the bodies of those who die on top-secret missions. Nola was a childhood friend of Zig’s daughter and someone who once saved his daughter’s life. So when Zig realizes Nola is still alive, he’s determined to find her. Yet as Zig digs into Nola’s past, he learns that trouble follows Nola everywhere she goes.

Nola is the U.S. Army’s artist-in-residence-a painter and trained soldier who rushes into battle, making art from war’s aftermath and sharing observations about today’s wars that would otherwise go overlooked. On her last mission, Nola saw something nobody was supposed to see, earning her an enemy unlike any other, one who will do whatever it takes to keep Nola quiet.

Together, Nola and Zig will either reveal a sleight of hand being played at the highest levels of power or die trying to uncover the US Army’s most mysterious secret-a centuries-old conspiracy that traces back through history to the greatest escape artist of all: Harry Houdini.
