The Girls Are Crazy About a Sharp Dressed Man: A Boston Comic Con Interview with Ben Templesmith

Interview & Written by Shaun Daniels and Photos & Edited by Sharon Wong with Audio Editing by Stephen Laskey of Laskey Productions

The 2012 Boston Comic Con interview double header continues with the fashionably conscious gentleman and artist Ben Templesmith.  His stylized art drew attention to the book, 30 Days of Night, which put himself, writer Steve Niles and comic publishing house IDW on the map.  It also breathed creepy, moody life into the Warren Ellis-penned Fell at Image Comics.  Most recently, Ben was tapped as an artist for the digital-first Batman series, a part of the new DC Comics digital initiative.

Not one to be tied down as only an artist, he has done his fair share of writing including Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse, Welcome to Hoxford, and Singularity 7.  The Australian-born writer and artist also has film projects coming up on which he remained tight-lipped (a soon to be released interview with director Mike Pecci will shed light on the subject).  To (try and) keep up with Ben Templesmith, pop by his Website, blog, tumblr and @Templesmith for all things on the writer/artist/gentleman/possible filmmaker.
