Comic Con 2011: Ben Costa

Ben Costa

won a Xeric Award

and made Pang, the Wandering Shaolin Monk, which he worked on for four years before publishing the book. It was inspired by his interest in Kung Fu movies that inspired him to take martial arts classes and then make this book. He’s working on volume two of three. The books are set in the 17th century and are a mix of history and legend and Kung Fu.

Yay! And he also made Eight Herbs Mtn.

Yay! He’s always loved comics and is self-taught as an artist. Pang, The Wandering Shaolin Monk is also online. The next volume will be published next year. This is Ben’s second Comic Con.
