Dr. Brian Kloss is living the dream! Author of Graphic Guide to Infectious Disease and Toxicology in a Box, Dr. Kloss met multiple personal heroes at Nickel City Comic Con in Buffalo, NY!

Dr. Kloss says, “The Hulk is one of my favorite comic book characters and I used to watch the TV show staring Lou Ferrrigno as a kid.”

Travis Bruce, the skilled artist behind Dr. Kloss’ satirical, pop-culture imaginings, transformed Kloss into a comic book cover with his hero! And Mr. Ferrrigno provided his autograph!

Dr. Kloss continues, “Meeting Hulk Hogan was awesome. I gifted Mr. Hogan an autographed copy of the illustration Travis drew of us and in turn Mr. Hogan autographed a copy of the same illustration for my collection. ┬áThe inspiration for this illustration was the LJN Wrestling Superstars Tag Team action figure set from the mid-eighties.”

“Jason Mewes was on hand as well and signed my illustration of me standing in for him with Silent Bob in front of the Quick Stop. This completed my Kevin Smith/Jason Mewes autograph collection.”
“Look how excited Jason Mewes was to receive an autographed copy of The Graphic Guide to Infectious Disease.” You too can get your own very exciting copy, right here!┬áStay tuned for more adventures from Kloss and Bruce!
