Fanboy Comics Interviews Ben Bishop, Creator of ‘The Aggregate’ Do you remember those awesome, choose-your-own-adventure novels from back in the day, where you would reach a point in the novel and have to make a choice? You might turn left and get eaten by a dragon, or turn right and defeat an evil king, taking his treasure. The story could go in any number of directions and was different every time. Well, comic creator Ben Bishop is developing a new graphic novel that will incorporate that choose-your-own-adventure style of storytelling, and he’s taken his idea to Kickstarter to secure funding and make a really awesome new book called The Aggregate. Fanboy Comics Senior Contributor Jason Enright interviewed Bishop about the new project.

Geekery has a tendency to spread. Unlike measles, this is generally a good thing. As your interests gravitate toward one end of geekery, whether it’s tabletop strategy games, obscure cult cinema from the ‘80s, or the comedy stylings of Monty Python, chances are that the friends you will gain will educate you on one or all of the parts that you missed. Seriously, there was a point in the ‘80s where you couldn’t have a D&D game without a spontaneous recitation of the Knights Who Say Ni. It was . . . exhausting.
‘Robert Heinlein’s Citizen of the Galaxy #1:’ Comic Book Review Robert Heinlein is one of my all-time favorite sci-fi authors. I used to devour his works voraciously, from the undisputed classics to his more questionable later works. Somehow, though, I’ve never read Citizen of the Galaxy. I have no idea how faithful this comic adaptation is to the original, or whether or not it does justice to the novel. What I do know is that it’s a very entertaining read.
‘Twisted Dark Volumes 2 and 3:’ TPB Review As a child, I grew up watching and reading as much horror as I could get my hands on. The more dark and twisted, the more excited and frightened I became. With the release of Twisted Dark, I couldn’t believe something was finally titled what I craved most out of entertainment. And, I was not disappointed. Twisted Dark Volumes 2 and 3 are just that: dark and oh so very twisted.
