Years before making the move to LA, Brandon achieved another one of his life goals: becoming a graphic novel creator. His published work includes Arkanium and Transformers: Armada for Dreamwave Productions, Shadowlaw, released in January 2012 to an immediate sell-out from Arcana/Platinum Studios for which he won the 2012 Glyph Award for Best Writer; Miles Away, a teen superhero series from Antarctic Press, and multiple titles for Lion Forge Comics, including a highly-anticipated Andre the Giant graphic novel biography.
With several acclaimed works under his belt, Brandon was named the new writer of the international graphic novel franchise Armarauders and was a guest writer for New Paradigm Studios' Watson and Holmes (a reinterpretation of the Holmes mythos set in modern Harlem, NY) comic series for which he received a 2014 Eisner Award nomination for Best Single Issue or One Shot for issue #6. The Eisner Award is considered to be the "Academy Award" of the comic book industry. His work on Watson and Holmes also netted several Glyph Award wins including Story of the Year, Best Writer and the Fan Award.
In 2014, Brandon produced, directed and wrote the documentary Brave New Souls: Black Sci-Fi and Fantasy Writers of the 21st Century that highlights the inspirations, struggles and creations of a new crop of African-American speculative fiction scribes. Brave New Souls was screened at Eagle Con at Cal State LA, Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo and is slated for multiple festivals and comic cons across the U.S. in the near future. Brandon regularly incorporates his life experience and knowledge of social science into his projects; delivering potent dramatic sequences built from the intersection of race, class and gender.
Recently, Brandon was named as one of the eight finalists in the prestigious Disney/ABC Studios Writing Program where he was chosen from over fifteen-hundred applicants to receive a one-year position as a writer at the Disney company.
In Spring 2015, Brandon was hired as a staff writer for the second season of Marvel's AGENT CARTER series.
Brandon is committed to telling stories across many media platforms that explore the depth of human diversity within our interconnected global society.
