Ben Fisher is an award winning best-selling author of comic books and prose. He writes across a wide spectrum of genres, and his works are connected with a common thread of hope and humanity, relayed with unmistakable dry wit.
Ben grew up in rural North Carolina where he discovered a love of fiction through Harryhausen models, Kirby panels, and dragon-filled dungeons. He broke into comics by winning a Viper Comics competition and followed that up with a series of graphic novels, including "Smuggling Spirits" and "Hexen Hammers."
His series, "The Great Divide," garnered widespread critical praise for its unique spin on the post-apocalypse, and his WebToons comic "Ladybird, Ladybird" was included in ComicCon's "Best Webcomic of 2017."
His "Underfoot" graphic novel series was nominated for a Ringo Award and Black-Eyed Susan Book Award.
After his nephews complained they weren't allowed to read his books, Ben wrote stories for "The Misadventures of Grumpy Cat & Pokey" which has sold over 100,000 copies.
Ben currently resides in Seattle, Washington with his cat and an increasingly unwieldy collection of board games.
When things get too quiet, he writes and records (and occasionally preforms) music under the names Tesla Deathray Survivors Anonymous and Frankenstein TNT.
