A self-professed comic book geek since childhood, Caesar Carrasquel -- known professionally as ADRIAN9 -- is an artist and musician from Venezuela and founder of VENEZUELA IN COMICS magazine.

In addition to working on commissioned projects, this talented artist is also the creator, writer and illustrator behind BLOOD BROTHERS, a gory, violent and darkly humorous graphic novel about family.

Carrasquel found the comic WITCHBLADE to be profoundly inspirational during his formative years and continues to enjoy the title, along with DARKNESS and THE WALKING DEAD. Other favorites include South
American comics CONDORITO and EL CHAPULIN COLORADO, also know as the RED GRASSHOPPER.
