James Parks and Ben Costa have been friends since the second grade, and love making stuff together. It all began in grade school, drawing superhero comics with crayons and construction paper. In high school, they spent hours making wacky homemade movies, and then as college roommates, they came up with the idea that would become Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo, their first published graphic novel series in 2017.
They love fantasy, and strive to craft tales that celebrate the adventures of unlikely heroes. They grew up playing tabletop roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons, creating countless characters and collaborative worlds with their pals. It’s a pastime that’s paved the way for their creative careers, and they still play with the same friends to this day.
