Author, John Dover
As the creator and writer of “Johnny Scotch”, John Dover has built his Jazz Noir world from the music he is immersed in on a daily basis and from his travels across the US as a professional musician. John continues to build the “Johnny Scotch” library through short stories, and his comic book collaboration with Illustrator and story board artist Dan Schaefer. John’s musical world and his writing world also collide with the “Johnny Scotch Vignettes”, a series of musical pieces written by Thomas Barber, that incorporate high energy fusion with the spoken word.
John currently is working on the Johnny Scotch graphic novel and the second Johnny Scotch novella. John is a regular contributor to Mythmachine.com and his horror short stories can be read in “Tales From the Braided Pony”, “Monsters ‘N’ Things”, and 100 Word Horrors. http://johnnyscotchjustice.com

John Hickey is a software programmer and Adam West/Batman fan from Richland, WA. He’s attended several comic-cons since February 2017 as Batman 1966, including Surfing Batman and “Somedays you just can’t get rid of a bomb” Batman. In the winter of 2017 he and a friend built a portable Batman Climbing Wall which made its debut at Portland FanFest in January of 2017. Since then, several improvements have been made to the Wall, including a larger window and easier entrance for people to look out the “window”. He’ll be debuting this new version of the wall at this year’s WEN-CON!!
The only 1966 Batmobile in the world that has been ridden in and autographed by Adam West, Burt Ward (Robin) and Evel Knievel. It has also been jumped over and signed by Robbie Knievel, famous daredevil and son of Evel Knievel.
