“Postscripts from Paradise” a.ka. “Confessions from a (Not So Teenage) Diary of a (Wimpy) Gay Indie Comic Creator”


By Brian Andersen

Indie comic creator behind “So Super Duper,” “Friend of Dorothy,” “Reignbow & Dee-Va,” “Sex and the Superhero” and lots of other super gay stuff!

DAY ONE: Friday: Number of comics sold – more than I can count on one hand, less than I can count on two hands

Although not a newbie to the San Francisco based comic book (and gaming, TV and movie) extravaganza known as WonderCon (I’ve attended the event for years as a fanboi and actually co-exhibited last year with a few of my dear-queer friends) I entered the convention floor with equal amounts cheer and intrepidation.

Would anyone care? Would any GLBT’ers actually fork over some of their hard-earned recession proof dough for one of my brightly-colored, funny books? Would any of my fellow gay geeks even bother to stop at my teeny-tiny indie slice of heaven hidden amidst a huge-ass convention hall filled to the rafters with comic goodness?

I was happy to be sharing my space with my fellow local queer comic creators Desmond Miller of Slumberland Press, Gene Guillette of RLT Press, and unofficial co-guest Rich Boutell, owner of “Whatever…” comics in the Castro, and the writer and creator behind the new hit comic book series “InterSections.” I was thankful I wouldn’t be facing the weekend alone.

The queers gather around and discuss their experiences at this year’s C2E2! You can be a fly on the wall for the drunken conversation between far too many queers. We have stevieD, PattyBoom, John, Joe, Sarospice, TonyL and joined by special guests Tony Breed (Charlie & Finn Are Hitched) and Steele a newbie comic reader whom we’ve pulled into the fold.

WARNING: This is another of those eps where you’ll want to keep your finger near the volume button. Sorry about that, but we are working on the sound issues.

Episode 102 – ComiCon 2009 (and Harry Potter too)


ComiCon 2009 – Success or Bust? The bitter queerkateers have no idea. They weren’t there. So they had to rely on listeners…well actually one listener to give us the deets. Meanwhile, we decided to talk Harry Potter. Admit it – you saw Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Admit it – you got all tingly (down there) when you saw Ron grasp his…broom. And you could have sworn he was looking right at you through the silver screen with those hot Ginge eyes of his. Sigh. Anyway, we cover a lot of ground in this episode. The Hot Topics include: Harry Potter, ComiCon 2009, the comic podcast – Chronic Insomnia, listener calls, and of course the latest from Marvel, Image and DC!

Listen to the Podcast!
