Valia Kapadai is a full-time dreamer and a comic junkie, currently working as a graphic designer at the University of Athens in the morning, while she shifts into a watercolour thirsty creature by night, drawing comic pages, whenever her ghosts allow it. Since 2008 she has been involved in various anthologies (for IDW, Insomnia, Accent UK, BLC, Dapshow Press, AyeSaw Comics, Markosia, ICCW, Εκδόσεις του Κάμπου and more), while six graphic novels she had illustrated or (water)coloured have been published by A.R.Sobati, Fotorama Publications, Markosia, and ComicdomPress. She also enjoys self-publishing mini comics. She loves spending her little free time with beloved people, reading (comic) books, listening to music and dancing. Usually lost inside her own messy little bubble, she can also be found wandering through the web.
Pavlos Pavlidis is a comic creator interpreting the world through a black and white perspective. He likes to create scary, disturbing and dystopian images (touching on political and more personal themes ). He loves his pentel brush with a passion and to him it feels like an extension of his hand!

While studying in Thessaloniki she entered a comic team and since then she has been participating in several comic festivals in Greece. She started with entries of short stories in collective anthologies and during the last few years she created two self-published comics, “At Boboli garden” and “Madam Kobile, the return”.
