about the author

To speak openly (and, more importantly, in the Third Person), Bryan is a Wondernaut/fairweather Fictionary who currently writes for Syfy's "Defiance" and upcoming "Dominion", and has also written episodes of "Arrow" and "Smallville". 

Bryan penned the third volume of DC Comics' "Batgirl" and continues to write "Smallville Season 11" for DC, and is hard at work on the second book in Disney Comics' new "Space Mountain" series (of which he also penned Book One).

And, of course, there are always secret things for secret companies, organizations and publishers.

It should also be made clear that he has almost never seen a Frankenstein.

PHOENIX COMICON - JUNE 7th & 8th - TABLE 2136

DEAREST CHAMPIONS -- 

I know it's been a hundred years since I posted on here (we had a baby and I got super-steady work, so time became precious), but the following is too long for a Tweet!

I'll be attending PHOENIX COMICON this weekend, and will have a table (!) for the very first time ever.

TABLE 2136

As such, it's been intimated that, rather than simply sitting there and awkwardly smiling at passersby, I should have wares for sale at said table... and so I shall!

(And, it goes without saying that of course anything sold at the table will be signed... and anything you bring by the table, too!)

You wanna chat? Come by and visit! You wanna get something signed? You know where I'll be! You wanna buy some junk? Come buy some junk!
