Ben Templesmith

Ben Templesmith is a ludicrously talented artist. Truly. Made his big splash doing the original story for 30 Days of Night with Steven Niles.

My favourite from him is the book he writes and draws, Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse.

He's at work presently with Leah Moore and John Reppion on Doctor Who: The Whispering Gallery one-shot,

and Groom Lake (due out late March) with Chris Ryall. Which Templesmith describes as: "Aliens. Mutating crotches. Probing. Smoking. Tourism. This is all you need to know."

Most importantly is the release next week of his new book The Presidents of the United States which includes bios on all 44 of them. Here's his Barack Obama entry:

Let your retailer/book store know PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES has a diamond order code (for comics) of: NOV084121 or that it's ISBN number is: 1600103448 *for your finer bookstores to order) Buy one for Democracy's sake!
