Both hosts are comics professionals and have worked for various publishers. Aditya Bidikar is a comic book letterer, writer and also creates fonts. He has lettered for Little Bird, Isola and Motor Crush

Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou is comic book letterer, writer and filmmaker. He is also editor of the Eisner Award-winning digital magazine PanelxPanel, and has a video series on YouTube, called Strip Panel Naked, which takes a look at what makes the best comics work.
