Has the be the hardest working artist in comics. The guy has, like, 5 books out at a time. Wormwood, Groom Lake, Welcome to Hoxford, he just completed that book of Presidential portraits. As a fan, it's tough on my wallet to keep up.

Just wish he could squeeze an issue or two of Fell in there sometimes....

He's undoubtably hard-working, but also his art style lends itself a a speedy working process. Let's face it, without his eye for colour and texture (which is amazing) his artwork doesn't dazzle.

You guys ever hear how he works? I've known Ben for many years and I'll tell you, he'll scan a dead corpse in if he needs a few bones for an image. The guy is nuts!

And FELL is Warren Ellis' fault. :)

the man is my hero! he's got a doctor Who comic out soon. The raw pencils look good enough to be handed off to a comics style colorist, but I love how he's able to draw very raw and then amp it up with photoshop-fu ^_^
