Bryan Lee Johnson
“He has a combination of self-loathing also coupled with almost supreme arrogance about other people…most people are idiots and ass-holes and he recognizes that so it’s like, he doesn’t feel less than these people, in fact Bryan feels better than these people but he also doesn’t like himself.” – Brian Quinn
TESD was prompted by the fans love of SModcast episodes that Bryan and Walt use to guest on. The original idea was to give Bryan a crutch to lean on and some responsibility to help him, as he was “one foot off the stool“. Bryan once perfected the art of not having a steady job and living in his parents basement, who he refers to as Pam and Edgar. He has a niece named Sage who he cares for. Bryan achieved his status of “local fame” from the podcast and being a friend of Kevin’s and then skyrocketed it into comic cons on a monthly basis with the success of Comic Book Men on AMC. Bryan is also a member of the Horror Writers Association. Noted works: Vulgar (film) , War of the Undead (comic), Karney (comic), Cryptozoic Man (comic).
