About the Author: Jonathan Swift, whose real name was Isaac Bickerstaff, was born 30th November 1667 in Dublin, Ireland. His Father had died some seven months before Jonathan was born, and his mother would later move to England when he was still a young boy. Left in the care of his paternal uncle, Godwin Swift, Jonathan would receive some education from his uncle, and then move on to study at Kilkenny College and then Dublin University. After graduating, Jonathan decided to travel to England where he found employment as a secretary to a retired diplomat whose name was William Temple. Jonathan also continued with his education, receiving an MA from Oxford University in 1692. While studying he had begun to write poetry, but would turn his attention to a prose based in satire. After publishing his first major work, A Tale of a Tub, in 1704, Jonathan turned his attention to another area that interested him -- politics. The Tories, a political party opposed to the Whig government of the time, fascinated Jonathan and he would help to write their pamphlets, and serve as Editor of their newspaper called The Examiner. However, by August 1714 the reputation of the Tories had been ruined and Jonathan moved back to Ireland. As a writer, his most accomplished work was published in 1726; Gulliver's Travels was immediately successful and its tapestry of fantasy and biting satire captured the public's imagination, and would see Jonathan forever respected for his wit as a writer. In later years Jonathan's health declined when a condition he had suffered from as a child -- Meniere's disease -- worsened, and he also suffered a paralytic stoke. Jonathan Swift died on 19th October 1745. Lewis Helfand was born on 27th April 1978 in Philadelphia and grew up in nearby Narberth, Pennsylvania. Although interested in cartoons and animation from a young age, by the time he was twelve Lewis's focus had turned to writing. After completing high school, he remained in the Philadelphia area with the intention of pursuing a degree in English. Four years later, with a political science degree and a passion for comic books, Lewis began working for local publishers by proofreading books and newspaper articles. By the age of twenty four, Lewis had been editing phonebooks for a year and a half and felt no closer to his lifelong goal of writing comic books. One day he decided to quit his job. Lewis then spent the next two months working day and night to write and draw his first comic book, Wasted Minute, the story of a world without crime where superheroes are forced to work regular jobs. To cover the cost of self-publishing, he began working odd jobs in offices and restaurants and started exhibiting at local comic-book conventions. With the first issue well received, he was soon collaborating with other artists and released four more issues over the next few years. At the same time, Lewis continues to work outside the field of comic books as a freelance writer and reporter for a number of national print and online publications. He has covered everything from sports and travel to politics and culture for magazines such as Renaissance, American Health and Fitness, and Computer Bits.
