Benjamin Frisch is a cartoonist and storyteller from Williamsburg Virginia. He has an MFA in Sequential Art from Savannah College of Art and Design, and participated in the international artist residency program La Maison Des Auteurs in Angoulême France. His work has appeared on the political satire site Wonkette, National Public Radio, and in the Graphic Canon comics anthologies. Frisch’s debut graphic novel, The Fun Family (Top Shelf Productions) presents a surreal deconstruction of childhood, adulthood, and good old American obsession. As their idyllic world collapses and the kids are forced to pick up the pieces, will this family circle become a broken mirror, or a portal to a nightmare world? The Hollywood Reporter writes,” [Fun Family] shares the imperfection behind the American dream….combining deceptively wholesome cartooning with an increasingly dark story.”
