Bio: Brian Andersen is a super, major, comic book nerd to the Nth degree and beyond. Since he was a wee boy of eight, Brian has mauled through comics, riding his bike, even in the rain, to his local comic book store 30 minutes away. He has never stopped reading and loving comics, even during those long, awkward, muscial theater teen years.
Now that Brian has somewhat matured he has finally realized his life-long goal of creating his very own comic book! He is crazy excited to present his first published work called So Super Duper. Issues ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX and SEVEN are available NOW in the Prism Store!
So Super Duper is a cute tale about an everyman superhero named Psyche, who isn't quite as super as his powerful teammates. He slowly learns that his lack of super abilities isn't the only thing that makes him different, as everyone (but himself), knows that he is totally gay!
Check out sosuperduper.com to see 6 FREE preview pages of each issue! And keep your peepers peeled for the next issue of So Super Duper, coming out super soon!
Please also enjoy Brian's new FREE webcomic right here on Prism called Unabashedly Billie! It's a cute little gay tale loosely based on the creator's life, with inks and letters by his non-comic book nerd Boyfriend! Printed copies of the book are also now available.
Brian (as writer this time around) has just released his third comic book, as a one-shot, called "Reignbow and Dee-Va"! It's like "Will & Grace" but with all out actiony Kung Fu, and hordes of vampires. The art is handled by the amazing Celina Hernandez! This is book is also in the fabulous Prism Comics Store!
Brian is also entering the publishing world by printing the work of other creators! His first creator-owned comic is Rich Worley's "A Wate of Time," which is also available at the Prism Comics store.
Hi second imprint is the trade paperback collection of comic book living legend Trina Robbin's "California Girls!" This black & white indie book is filled to bursting with fabulous romance, outfits, and paperdolls!
Brian has been know to occasionally write comic book reviews for newsarama.com as well writing fun book reviews and cheeky blurbs for the always amazing, always fabulous Instinct Magazine (which everyone need to run out and subscribe to asap!).
Brian lives in San Francisco with his sexy boy toy of 8 years, their five plants, his kitten Isley and many, many long boxes filled with comics!

Another Comic-Con comes to an end! It goes by in a rush, with me feeling like a salmon swimming upstream.
