MY BIO
Brian McNally was raised in Sacramento, but ran away to San Francisco to be a bohemian painter in 1988. In 1996 he moved back to Japan, and stayed this time for 13 years (he’s been speaking Japanese for over 20 years). In 2009, he moved back to Sacramento and produced a series of fundraisers for local charities (50-100 people in a Cafe, $10 at door but nobody turned away for lack of funds). The fundraisers featured original music and comedy acts from SF, Oakland, and Sacramento, and generous Sac audiences  showered everyone with applause.  (see events page).

In 2012, Brian bought a house in Portland and set to work full time on his original graphic novel series for a general audience about Japan, America, and adventure stories set in the uber hip present, or in rather hip times just before WWII.  Moral choices that make a hero is a big theme, but from a buddhist view on things that stresses personal virtue over control.

Oberon Destroyers: The Quiet Ninja (23rd of the House of Ugamoto)

Influences include anime and manga classics, 60s Marvel epics (Kirby!!), Golden Age art, especially Caniff and Toth, and modern Indy authors like Gene Yang and Alison Bechdel. The style of Steve Ditko, much copied in his childhood, is popping out lately.

2014 is also the year Brian jumped a major hurdle and survived a giant colon cancer tumor (after two years of illness). He attended Wizard World Sacramento as an exhibitor in his first official industry debut. He was greatly assisted by Wally Khan Studios interms, Justtise and Stephen Payan, that gave a lot of energy for free. They were great with the crowd. When helpful souls suggested new thing that he should do to improve the operation, his response was, “Well, I just finished chemotherapy. Gimme a minute.”
