So Super Duper’s Brian Andersen Debuts Two Comics at San Diego Comic-Con!
posted July 16th, 2011
[Print-ready Version]

Brian Andersen is bringing two new comics to San Diego Comic-Con International 2011: His own Friend of Dorothy #2 and Adam Fair's This Gay Existence #3, both published by Brian's CBG Comics!

"Next week is the world famous San Diego Comic Con (Yay!) and I'm totally going (and dragging my boyfriend along with me! Yay!)," says Andersen. "I'll be part of an amazing panel discussion while at Comic Con on Friday at 1pm. I'll also be partnering with Prism Comics (Booth 2144, ya'll) on Saturday, where I'll be debuting and selling my two brand new comics!"

Here is Andersen's description of Friend of Dorothy: "After being visited by a sexy, shirtless Gorlindo the Good Witch, some evil, soul-eating Scrows (scarecrows), and a smarty-pants, rude dog named Dodo, Scott-John of Earth must accept the mantel of the 'Friend of Dorothy", Oz's first ever superhero champion, and save the world. No pressure or anything!

Issue two finds Scott-John bringing his adorable blondie boyfriend along for the ride in his mission to defeat an evil munchkin from destroying both Earth and Oz. Can the sassy dog Dodo help the boys defeat the evil Scrows and the zombie-ish Mankeys in time?"

To read an eight-page preview of Friend of Dorothy #2 (of which AfterElton.com said, "It's hard not to be charmed by its earnestness and light tone and humor"), go to here.

Andersen describes Adam Fair's This Gay Existence #3: "Finally a realistic down-to-earth gay cartoon that's completely off the wall and full of ghosts and bisexual aliens. Eddie figured that even at a Southern art school there would plenty of other gay guys to relate to. Through a series of comic strips, graphs and the occasional television show premise, we see just how wrong Eddie was. Eddie's confidant gay roommate, Zen, tries to share insight with him, but is usually overshadowed by friends like Ronnie, who is too 'out', or by Pauly, who is too closeted. All this while battling 'magical' trolls, Rev. Phelps and keeping the walls from bleeding make up this gay existence."

To preview This Gay Existence #3, go here.

Along with appearing at the Prism booth, Andersen will participate in the following panel:

"Publishing Queer: Producing LGBT Comics and Graphic Novels": Friday, July 22, from 1:00-2:00pm. Queer-themed comics, once solely the domain of the gay press, are breaking into the mainstream. What are the challenges and rewards of producing this work and getting it in front of an audience hungry for the material? How can it be marketed and publicized, both to an LGBT readership and beyond? Should queer cartoonists self-publish or look to established publishers? Moderator Justin Hall (Glamazonia, Prism Comics Talent Chair) leads a spirited conversation with a diverse panel of publishing pros: Brian Andersen (self-publisher, So Super Duper), Charles "Zan" Christensen (publisher, Northwest Press), Jacquelene Cohen (publicist, Fantagraphics), Shannon O'Leary (comics editor and journalist), Bob Schreck (editor-in-chief, Legendary Pictures), and Tony Valenzuela (executive director, Lambda Literary Foundation). Room 9
