Ben's Okay, Folks.

Ben TemplesmithAfter today's earlier reported news that Ben Templesmith was to be dropped from the Image comic book Ten Grand after he didn't respond to communication from Image or the book's writer Joe Michael Straczynski, naturally, some people were concerned. Including us.

Earlier tonight, Ben did reply to emails I sent to him, assured me, and all of you, that he was okay.

He told me that to feel free to announce he's not dead, just "dealing with a lot of crappy stuff and got so behind on everything I sorta collapsed and avoided the world."

There will be other books, other projects. But for those concerned, Ben's okay, folks.
