Emilliano Mammucari (1975, Velletri, Italy) attended the Roman School of Comics. In 1999. he cofounded the Montego independent publishing house, for which he published his first comic book-Povero Pinocchio on Alessandro Bilotta's texts. Also for Montego, Mammucari in 2000. made the horror miniserie The black gift, again on Bilotta's script. In 2002, contacted by Lorenzo Bartoli, he joined the John Doe project (co-creator of the series was Roberto Recchioni). Mammucari drew pages from the first issue of this series, released in June 2003. Subsequently, he began collaborating with Sergio Bonelli Editore, for whom he first produced two numbers for the Napoleon series, following by drawings for 5th number of Jan Dix miniseries. Between 2009. and 2010. he has done all covers for Caravan mini-series, created by Michele Medda, and he has also designed the number 10. Also for Bonelli, together with Roberto Recchioni, he created the Orfani series (released in October 2013).

Zbog dobrog odziva, scenario sledeće priče za ovu ediciju Cvetovi pokolja označiće i početak nove mini-serije koju će kao scenarista potpisati upravo Rekjoni, crtački uobličiti Andrea Akardi, a koja nosi naziv Chanbara. 20. maja 2013. glavni urednik kuće Sergio Bonelli Editore Mauro Markezeli objavio je da je Roberto Rekjoni novi urednik Dilana Doga.

Bojan Vukić rođen je u Zaječaru 1976. godine, gde i danas živi i radi. Završio je srednju tehničku školu i bio, kako kaže, totalno nezainteresovan za bilo šta osim crtanja stripova. Tokom školovanja vrlo često obilazio je strip crtača Dragana Stokića-Rajačkog, koji je nesebično sa njim delio svo svoje znanje o radu na stripu. U Leskovcu na 1. Balkanskoj Smotri osvojio je nagradu za strip-tablu.
Radio je ilustracije za razne internet firme, web-stripove,a prvi pravi profesionalni strip mu je bio “Divlja Magija” sa scenaristom Milanom Konjevićem. Od radova za naše tržište pominje i “Ristu Vaterpolistu”, strip urađen opet u tandemu sa MIlanom Konjevićem. Sa scenaristom Markom Stojanovićem sarađivao je na “Vekovnicima”. Od 2010. objavljuje za francusku kuću Soleil, a svoju biografiju obogatio je sa dva albuma iz serije Grand Anciens, sa još dva iz serije Retour of Dorian Gray, zatim sa čak tri albuma iz serijala Merlin le Prophete, a potpisao je i deseti album iz serije Oracle. Jedan od njegovih najuspešnijih radova vezuje se za serijal Elfes na kojem je već potpisao dva albuma, dok je još jedan u pripremi. Opredelio se da crta fantazi stripove jer voli, kako kaže, da crta iz glave, bez ikakvih referenci, da izmišlja stvari, za njega to ima pravu vrednost.

Bojan Vukić was born in Zaječar in 1976, where he still lives and works. He finished secondary Technical school, and he was, as he says, totally uninterested in anything but drawing comics. During his education, he often visited comic artist Dragan Stokic-Rajacki, who unselfishly shared with him all his knowledge about working on the comic book. In Leskovac, at 1st Balkan Festival for Young Comic Authors he won the prize for the comic-panel. He has done illustrations for various internet companies, web-comics, and the first real professional comic was "Wild Magic" with screenwriter Milan Konjević. Together with Konjevic he made comic "Rista Vaterpolista", and with the scriptwriter Marko Stojanović he worked on "Vekovnici". Since 2010. he has been publishing for the French house “Soleil”, and has enriched his biography with two albums done for the series Grand Anciens, following by two more for the Retour of Dorian Gray series, and three albums for the series Merlin le Prophete. After that, he has signed the tenth album from series Oracle. One of his most successful works is related to the “Elfes”, comic book series in which he signed two albums, while another one will soon be published.
He decided to draw fantasy comics because he likes, as he says, to draw using only his imagination, without any references, that has the right value for him.
