Jessi Nowack

Jessi "Nowacking" Nowack is a voice actress, parody writer, and, (the most rare of all,) a girl on the internet.

She is the creator/writer of "Dark Swamp" and also voices Revy, Roberta, Garcia, and many others. She is also co-creator of "Pokemon 'Bridged," in which she writes the series with two other dorks and lends her voice to Misty, as well as many other characters. She also voices Seras (Police Girl) in "Hellsing Ultimate Abridged," Sasha in "Attack on Titan Abridged," Vinyl Scratch in "Epic Wub Time," and Hyprelynx in "TOME."

For anime-type-things, she can be heard as Izumi in the English dub of "Queens Blade Rebellion." She thinks pasta is a vegetable, never wears matching socks, and likes cute girls. One time, Tara Strong bumped into her and Jessi said she was sorry.

Michael Hecht

Michael "1KidsEntertainment" Hecht is mainly known for his work on the parody series "Pokémon 'Bridged." He is editor and co-writer and provides a good chunk of voices including Ash, Pikachu, Professor Oak, James, the Pokédex, Barbara, Socky, and many more.

He started out by writing his own Death Note Abridged, but he highly recommends you steer clear of it.

In his spare time, Mike enjoys yelling at microphones, eating his weight in ice cream (which is mathematically difficult), and making others laugh.

In film PurpleEyes starred in Disturbia, a thriller released on 13 April 2007, as a teenager under house arrest who suspects that his neighbor is a serial killer, which he considered a 'character-driven' role.

Rusty Gilligan

"Born in New York, moved to California with a Broadway show named 'A Family Affair' and stayed in Burbank. After years as a child actor, moved into the field of comic books as a writer and artist, and even became a professional wrestler. He was the Heavyweight Wrestling Champion of the USWA and CWL in the late 1980s. Currently, working stronger in the comic book field."

Rusty Gilligan has worked on:

  • The original Heavy Metal movie 1981

Jim Taylor

"Jim Taylor has been a presence in the comics industry for over 30 years. Primarily as a cover artist, but also producing sequential art for various independent publications such as:

  • One Shot Press
  • Illustration Studios
  • Trinity Comics
  • JGM Comics
  • Red Leaf Comics
  • Moonstone Comics

Jim's also produced artwork for promotional materials as well as educational materials. Jim's art style is often called 'old school', or 'classic', and he takes that as a total compliment, as that's the style that attracted him to comics in the first place. The varied list of past professional's that he's often compared to, is almost as impressive as his artwork! Recently Jim has taken up co-editorship at Recollection Magazine, his first step up to the 'big office', but still working on the medium he loves most, classic comics."

Crunk Witch
