Jackie Ryan was once fist-bumped by Adam West.

She makes 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 holds a PhD in History and Political Science from The University of Queensland.

… 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 and had separate art exhibitions at the Brisbane Powerhouse, when the FFA sold out its Brisbane Powerhouse show, when Jackie designed the original logo for the Queensland Literary Awards, 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 also invited to produce a limited-edition poster), and the Woodford Folk Festival, that time when her designs had exhibitions at the Redlands Art Gallery, Onespace Gallery and Sh00ting Gallery, and were twice commissioned for 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, produced audio-visual material on Expo 88 for the Queensland Museum and the South Bank Corporation, wrote the didactic text for the Museum of Brisbane’s 25th Expo anniversary exhibition, wrote for History Australia, became an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Queensland, and that time when UQP published her book on World Expo 88.


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