Please welcome, Ben Bishop!

Ben Bishop is a comic creator from Maine. He wrote, illustrated, and self-published his first book, a 300-page graphic novel called Nathan the Caveman in 2008, which was followed by several other smaller works. In 2011 he provided the illustrations for the award-winning book Lost Trail: Nine Days Alone in the Wilderness, the graphic novel retelling of the famous Donn Fendler story “Lost on a Mountain in Maine.” In the past couple years, Ben illustrated a short story for Archaia’s The Reason for Dragons, as well as cover artwork for IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. He is currently hard at work on his next book, THE AGGREGATE, a Split Decision graphic novel that he funded through Kickstarter.
