We hope you loved Schaumburg Library Comic Con® as much as we did! The 2022 event has wrapped up, but you can still check out the work of some amazing artists who participated in our Artist Alley.
Brian BMAN Babendererde
Brian "BMAN" Babendererde is a graphic novelist, illustrator, and video game designer.

A veteran of the video game industry, Brian has also written and designed classic games such as Beavis and Butt-head in Virtual Stupidity, PSI-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy, and SepterraCore: Legacy of the Creator.
