BRAD

Growing up poor, Brad’s family would have to rent consoles rather than own them. In 1999, they were able to rent a Sega Dreamcast and a copy of Sonic Adventure, which unfortunately did not come with a VMU (Virtual Memory Unit) to save game progress. A 12-year-old Brad would have to play the game from the beginning every session until eventually, he was able to beat the entirety of the game with every character in a single sitting. Brad also does editorial for various comics on Hiveworks. (he/him)
