Brent Anderson


Genres: Comics


Brent Anderson was born in San Jose, California. A child of the 50s, his favorite comics --on the rare occasions he was allowed to read them --were Archie, Stumbo the Giant, Hot Stuff, and Dennis the Menace. His mother favored classical children's literature.

In junior high school Brent discovered the wonderful pantheon of characters in Marvel Comics. The Fantastic Four were his favorite. "They were a family who had super-powers and helped each other out. I wanted to be part of a family like that," he says. Brent began writing and drawing his own comics on school binder paper, creating a pantheon of his own that included Radium the Robot and the Chameleon.

His professional career took off in 1979. Ka-zar the Savage, written by Bruce Jones, was his first regular series. The X-Men graphic novel "God Loves, Man Kills" followed. Since then he has created an impressive list of notable series, including the award-winning Astro City, the heroic space-opera, Strikeforce Morituri, and the innovative cinematic comic, Somerset Holmes.

He is currently working on Astro City Vol. 3 for DC/Vertigo, due to launch in June 2013. Work continues on a graphic novel, El Jaguár, in collaboration with writer Shirley Johnston. 



Brent Anderson will be at the following events
