Bishop is known for creating the world’s first Split Decision Comic, Aggregate. He is more widely known recently as one of the artists on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin series at IDW Publishing. Ben’s cover art was feature as the San Diego Comic Con 2022 variant of issue 3.
On The Last Ronin, Ben joined TMNT co-creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, as well as Tom Waltz, Esau Escorza, and Issac Escorza. Ronin recently wrapped up its five-issue run on April 27, 2022.
