BRIAN K. MORRIS knew he wanted to be a writer since seventh grade. Since then, he's written for magazines such as BACK ISSUE Magazine, Hogan's Alley, Knights of the Dinner Table, The Jack Kirby Collector, WHOtopia, and many more too obscure to mention.
Since 2012, Brian has been a prolific short story writer (With Great Power, Malicious Mysteries, and the latest entry in the Paranormals series), comic book scripter and novelist. In the field of action/adventure and contemporary fantasy, he's written BLOODSHOT: The Coldest Warrior (based on the Valiant Comics character), Conflict: A Study In Heroic Contrasts, VULCANA: Rebirth of the Champion, as well as the horror parody SANTASTEIN: The Post-Holiday Prometheus. The latter two titles feature cover paintings by Trevor Erick Hawkins, a Celebration mainstay.
Currently, in addition to writing sequels to his Bloodshot, Santastein, and Vulcana books, Brian is also a writer and editor for Silver Phoenix Entertainment on the upcoming horror anthology, Tales of Bachelor's Grove, based on a real-life haunted cemetery in the Chicago suburbs. He's also writing adventure stories featuring illusionist Master Ron Fitzgerald and Kadrolsha Ona, The Queen of the Paranormal as well as a supernatural western mini-series.
Brian's also contributed to Sean Dulaney's Celebration Comics with new stories of Nature Boy and The Purple Claw with more to come. He's also helping with a revival of Ron Frantz's ACE Comics, writing new adventures of The Original Skyman, The Face, Judo Joe, and Spencer Spook.
In addition to being a public speaker, popular convention guest, and an "award winning" playwright, Brian is also an actor on both stage and screen and written audio plays for Audio Movies, LLC. From 2008-2015, Brian was a part of The Metro Players who present the skits that open and close the Superman Celebration.
As if that wasn't enough, Brian is involved in the Superman Radio Show Re-enactment on Friday and will be presenting his annual Saturday talk on comic book history featuring the top cosplayers in Metropolis. He'll be at Artists Alley all weekend and will gladly sell you books with his name in them with no charge for his autograph (but NOT signing them will cost you $20).
Brian has attended the Superman Celebration every year since 1999. He currently lives in central Indiana with his patient wife Cookie, no kids, no pets, and too many comic books. Brian can be found online at his Freelance Words or Vulcana pages on Facebook as well as his Amazon sales page. Enjoy the Celebration!
