Funny Book Splatter 012: Ben Grisanti
Friday is here and so is a brand, spanking new episode of Funny Book Splatter. This week’s guest is Ben Grisanti, the writer of Polybius Dreams, a new mini-series centered on the urban legend of an arcade video game that drives a town to violence. Ben is currently crowd-funding the first issue on Kickstarter. I am a backer myself and am really looking forward to diving into this book. It brings together a bunch of stuff I love like video games, the eighties, and of course, HORROR! You can read the first seventeen pages online right now to get an idea of what you’re in for.
Ben can be found online on Twitter and through the Hypnotic Dog Comics site. The Polybius Dreams Kickstarter runs through May 13th, 2017.
Finally, I know I plug my other podcast, Raging Nerdon every week. If you’ve never checked it out, I implore you to listen to the latest episode, #44: Four Lokos and Off-Brand Condoms. My co-host BJ Boothe tells the most insane story involving canine justice that is well worth a listen. Check it out whereever you get your podcasts.
