All his life, Ben Howard wanted to live in a grim, desolate Scottish castle and write gruesome stories while sipping brandy and contemplating his own existential angst. Instead, he ended up living in Florida, so he does all this with a tan.
Ben has been a lifelong comics fan and plans on writing some. Until that happens, he eagerly writes about comics for PopOptiq and his barely existent Tumblr. Other interests include horror movies, stories of troubled youth (yes, he is this dark), writing comics, screenplays, and occasional short stories, heavy metal, vegetarian food, and general dicking around.
Ben's words of wisdom: "When life beats you down, get revenge with art!"
