Ray Winninger is a game designer who has worked on a number of role-playing games, including the Dungeons & Dragons series and DC Heroes. From a young age, he had an affinity towards constructing complex, elaborate role-playing campaigns that made him a natural fit with game developers TSR, Mayfair Games, and West End Games.

Dave Gibbons has worked in comics since 1973. Cutting his teeth on underground comics and fanzines, he became a frequent contributor to the UK anthology magazine 2000 AD, illustrating Harlem Heroes and Dan Dare, and co-creating Rogue Trooper. Since then, he has drawn and written for most comics publishers on both sides of the Atlantic. His work has encompassed Doctor Who, Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Predator, Aliens, the Hugo Award-winning Watchmen with Alan Moore, and Give Me Liberty and Martha Washington Goes to War with Frank Miller. His semi-autobiographical graphic novel The Originals won an Eisner Award in 2005, and his most recent work includes The Secret Service with Mark Millar. He is also a creative consultant for Madefire motion books and Magic Leap mixed reality technology.
