Mindy Furano’s matchless wit, creative spontaneity, and cultural awareness is inimitable and variegated – she’s basically one of our favorite people. If you’re not following her on Twitter and Vine, you’re misusing the internet and I don’t have time for this.

Twitter slayer, fashion sharpshooter, and cosmetologist icon pale_teen goes by many code names, including “a wandering ghost” and, most esoterically, “Laura”. She is known for her social observations, astute quips, and endlessly cool color palette.
Ben Templesmith has been no stranger to horror — the creator-owned veteran has become one of this generation’s best defined horror authors through books like Welcome to Hoxford, 30 Days of Night, and The Squidder.
