About

Hello! 

My name is Benjamin Schipper but please call me Ben. I'm both the writer and artist of Joe Death and the Graven Imagepublishing from Dark Horse comics in the near future. Joe Death is a story about the Grim Reaper’s quest for life. Joe is kind of like a coffin-shaped door, a frame character by which we experience the weird, tragic, and beautiful experiences of others. His story explores all the things I’m most excited and interested in, a mixture of genres and storytelling traditions, that I imagine will read and feel more like Studio Ghibli than Pixar.

The primary focus of this Patreon is to bring you my best comics. Your money supports me and lets me know I’m creating something that actual people want in their lives, it means an incredible amount to me. In addition to making Joe Death I want to document my process and bring useful information to all those interested in reading, writing, and drawing comics. The $10 and up tiers give you the opportunity to join me and others as we discuss art and stories, the basic ingredients for every cartoonist. If you're an artist that wants to write I highly recommend joining in and I hope to see you there!

Anyone signing up at any level will receive this 23 x 30-inch broadsheet poster of Joe Death. Printed on thick, 50lb pound newsprint.

Thank you all so much for your support!
