The Aggregate Patreon Image

Ben Bishop is a talented comic book artist and writer who is utilizing Patreon in hopes of funding his next graphic novel, The Aggregate.

I first met Bishop at New York Comic-Con in 2008. I was strolling through the Artist Alley, not really looking for anything specific, when a particular work of art stood out among the hundreds I’d already glanced over. I found myself flipping through the 300-page Nathan the Caveman, the first self-published graphic novel that he had created. As I spoke with Bishop about the concept behind the novel, I knew I needed to read the book. I bought a copy, brought it home with me, and finished it that night in one sitting. The next day, I went back to Bishop’s table at the convention and explained to him how much I enjoyed the honesty and humanity of the story through the medium of a graphic novel.

I have since been following Bishop’s work, immersing myself in the short story work he did for the 2014 Harvey Award nominated The Reason for Dragons, as well as the multiple award winning, The Lost Trail: Nine Days Alone in the Wilderness. I am thrilled to announce that his latest project, The Aggregate is in the works.

Here is the synopsis of The Aggregate:

A post apocalyptic drifter who has spent the last 1,000 years keeping 5 genetically engineered terrorists – the OTA’s – away from their giant robot killing machine, now finds herself leading one of them right to it.

This all sounds awesome! But how can you help this story come to fruition and support independent comic creator, Ben Bishop at the same time? You can give a donation so that he can work on the project right now! Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that helps “creators make a living from their passion and hard work.”

Bishop offers various rewards for giving him the opportunity to create The Aggregate, such as: behind the scenes tutorials of the work in progress, at least one high resolution image each month that you can download and print as you please, original artwork, and more.

While you decide whether or not this project is for you, I would recommend hearing about it from the man himself. Check out the video below, which you can also find on his Patreon page; and while you’re at it, take a look at his previous work at bishart.net.
