Crumbs Cover

Meet the creative team behind the brand new horror independent comic "Crumbs" this October at the Vancouver Comic & Toy Show! Writers Jessey Nelson & Kyle Siemens along with artist Mary Madison Silvas will be showcasing their very first comic book - CRUMBS. Crumbs was adapted from Jessey Nelson's short film and is the story of a young boy named Shylo and his imaginary monster.

Jessey Nelson


Jessey Nelson is a Canadian-born filmmaker from Vancouver, BC. He is a multi-talented artist, working as a director, writer, producer, and actor. Jessey is best known for his short film Crumbs, (co-directed with his brother Cody) which was selected by the Crazy8s Film Society in 2021, and adapted into this comic book. In 2019, Jessey co-founded the Smashed Potato Kids sketch comedy crew.

Recently, Jessey teamed up with filmmaker Dani Barker to release their current short film, AI Artist, which was selected as a Top 10 Finalist at the Runway AI Film Festival. After receiving positive feedback and encouragement to create more, they are developing AI Artist into a web series.

Kyle Siemens


Kyle Siemens is currently travelling the world, supporting himself with writing. Yup, it's possible! He co-wrote Crumbs (mostly in an apartment in Morocco), a bunch of other screenplays, and is currently writing a fantasy graphic novel for young people about how to find meaning in life. He writes about all this on his website, which is his name with a "dot com" at the end. Fancy!

Mary Madison Silvas\


What began as a simple love for westerns and animals turned into a life-long passion to become a professional storyteller. Mary "Madison" Silvas is a Southern California based illustrator with a wide variety of talents and mediums. Predominantly working in digital inking and traditional pencil work, Madison has expanded her skill to include acrylics, watercolor, traditional inking, and when she has to sit in the car for a while, knitting. Her love of sequential art began when she was a storyboard artist for a couple of student films at Brooks Institute of Photography, and soon branched out into writing and drawing her own graphic novels.

The incredible opportunity to work on Crumbs opens several new doors for her as she continues to hone her skills, explore different techniques, and hopefully one day soon, poblish her own stories. She also hopes she can be proof that dreams are meant to be chased, no matter how hopeless it may seem.


Katy DeCobray

Artist, cosplayer, and adorkable badass.

Based in Vancouver BC, Canada, Katy DeCobray's origins are shrouded in mystery and rumour. She first appeared at San Diego Comic Con in 2009 and has been entertaining fans at conventions across the West coast ever since.

Katy DeCobray is a master of intrigue and disguise, creating costumes that draw from a variety of sources from comic books to anime and video games, although she has a particular penchant for personating villains in tight black spandex and impossibly high heels.

You will most likely find her in the center of attention, nerding up your selfies, and cursing her poor choices in footwear.

You can contact her via email and the following social media accounts:

John Gallagher

At Uncannyknack Comics we're fans first. To this day that fandom has stayed consistent and diverse. John Gallagher built a reputation in the collector community for his brand of variant covers so it only seemed fitting that opening a personal imprint was the next step. Together with his two partners Scoott Rohan and Peter Turcotte (owner of local store Big Pete's Collectibles) we specialize in the indie and creator owned variant space, far from the overcrowded superhero market, providing covers for all genre material. We have a simple rule: It has to be a cover we'd want ourselves before we'd ever think of selling it to anyone and that will never change. Drop by our sales table and see what we have. John will be signing and remarking new and catalogue drops from 11 - 2.
