Jackie Ryan was once fist-bumped by Adam West.


She writes, directs, photographs, and designs the Aurealis Award-winning Burger Force comic book series, is the founding editor of the comedy writing and performance collective The Fanciful Fiction Auxiliary (FFA), and has a book on World Expo 88 forthcoming in 2018 through UQP.

… then there was that time when the Burger Force and FFA websites were archived by the National Library of Australia as a sites of cultural significance, that time when Burger Force and the FFA had art exhibitions at the Brisbane Powerhouse, that time when the FFA sold out its Brisbane Powerhouse show, that time when Jackie designed the original logo for the Queensland Literary Awards, those times when Jackie appeared at Pecha Kucha, the Brisbane Writers Festival, the Emerging Writers Festival Melbourne, Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo in Los Angeles (for which she was invited to produce a limited-edition poster), the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco, the Woodford Folk Festival, The Planting, that time when her design work featured in exhibitions at the Redlands Art Gallery, Sh00ting Gallery, the Brisbane City Council Vibrant Laneways Project, that time when she directed music-videos for b(if)tek, Iron On, Full Fathom Five, and The Stress of Leisure, that time when she had writing published by if:book, Dash Literary Journal, and History Australia, that time when she produced videos on Expo 88 for the Queensland Museum and the South Bank Corporation, when she wrote the didactic text for the Museum of Brisbane’s 25th anniversary exhibition on this subject, that time when she received her PhD in history and political science from The University of Queensland, and that time when she became an honorary research fellow at the same institution.

But mostly she thinks about that time she was fist-bumped by Adam West.
