Sarah Lightman is a comics artist, a scholar studying autobiography in comics, and co-curator of the exhibit Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women, presented in Toronto by the Koffler Centre of the Arts.

Michael Kaminer is a journalist and the co-curator of Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women. An avid collector of comics, he describes himself as an amateur in the original sense: driven by passion for the scene and invested in acknowledging its contributors.
