Overview

It’s July 2008, and uber-geek Liquin Sonos journeys back to the one place on Earth where he feels normal: the San Diego Comic-Con. Accompanied by first-time attendee Kate, socially inept would-be animator Windsor, and the flamboyant talent agent Brigham, Liquin delves further into the sex and drug fueled parties that underscore the convention and his mind and spirit wear down, he must confront his own creative ambition and loneliness to discover his life direction as the ultimate outsider.

Sex, Drugs & Superheroes is the hereto untold story of the famed San Diego Comic-Con. From a stark look at the camaraderie, rivalries, vernacular language and traditions of Comic-Con, to the love-hate relationship with the Hollywood establishment that feeds it, never before has a book covered the nature of the American geek subculture. The first in an open-ended book cycle following the adventures of Liquin and his friends as they follow their dreams, Sex, Drugs & Superheroes speaks to anyone with a love of all things geeky, or to anyone who has ever had a creative dream.

Editorial Reviews

Courtney K.
“Normals” see a Comic Con as weird. Geeks see it as The Ultimate Show. Putting a Comic Con experience into words is near impossible. David Reddish has managed to incorporate the realistic and the unattainable interactions in one fell swoop: Reddish manages to show a love story and level of sweetness that every Con Attendee secretly wishes for.
--Courtney K., Staff Writer, MyTakeOnTV.com
Rasheed Newson
Liquin Sonos — the fierce, biting and clever narrator of “Sex, Drugs & Superheroes” — says he hates his life. His loss is our gain. While Liquin rages against the indignities of his daily existence and wrestles with his unrealized ambitions, the reader is rewarded with a funny and rollicking novel.
--Rasheed Newson, author BRING A SHOVEL AND A GUN; staff writer "ARMY WIVES"

Meet the Author

Self proclaimed uber-geek David Reddish is the award-winning author of Sex, Drugs & Superheroes: A Savage Journey into a Wretched Hive of Scum & Supervillainy, as well as the forthcoming The Passion of St. Sergius & St. Bacchus. A prolific screenwriter as well as a novelist, Mr. Reddish has also written the as-yet unproduced Sycophant, Embellishment, Algonquin Hills and Leopard Messiah, as well as the television sitcom The Temps.
A native of Chicago, Illinois, Mr. Reddish demonstrated early verbal gifts, first speaking in complete sentances at nine months old, and an ability to read by age one and a half. By age five, he was already writing short stories and plays which he would often produce in his living room for family and friends. His talent with words lead him to work as a child stage actor and classical vocalist before turning to his focus to writing in his college years. A decorated scholar, Reddish graduated with a degree in Film from the University of Central Florida.

Always known for his brash, outspoken manner and eccentric behavior, David Reddish has won awards for his politcal activism with the Stonewall Young Democrats, as well as pop culture acclaim for his fashion design work, his style ranging from grunge rock to Cyberpunk chic. Working on occasion as a model and go-go dancer gained Reddish notariaty as a Los Angeles socialite, his circle of friends ranging from poverty row to the Hollywood A-List--his persona, like his written works, always versitile and original. He currently resides in Studio City, California.
