About the Author
DUANE SWIERCZYNSKI is the author of "The Wheelman", " The Blonde", "Severance Package", and "Expiration Date", and writes for Marvel Comics. The Wheelman was nominated for the Gumshoe Award and was optioned for film. He lives in Philadelphia.

Jesus Saiz is another talented Spanish cartoonist who's making some noise in America. Following work for Dark Horse and DC's JLA-verse, he got a lot of attention for Midnight Mass (Vertigo) and he's now penciling the monthly 21 Down for Wildstorm, a Gen 13-Universe spin-off about a young man with the power to see how people die that echoes both Fight Club and Unbreakable. Saiz' work contrast realistic humans against moody, expressionist vistas - and the contrast makes both more effective.
