DeMatteis , perhaps best known for legendary runs on Spiderman and Justice League International , is the creator of Moonshadow, Brooklyn Dreams and Abadazad , as well as Imaginalis , a novel for young readers. Mike Carey, author of the Felix Castor novels and one of the architects of Marvel’s X-Men line, had acclaimed runs on Lucifer , Hellblazer and Ultimate Fantastic Four and is the creator of Crossing Midnight and The Unwritten .
