Ben Garrison, cartoonist
I sold zero copies of the printed book "Rogue Cartoonist" thanks to BookBaby's FRAUD. They promised distribution. They promised to print my book on demand. My book did appear on Amazon for a while, but all orders were cancelled when Bookbaby didn't deliver. BookBaby failed to print a single copy as promised. THEY RUINED MY BOOK! They would not answer my email when I asked them why. Nobody knew anything--not even their president. Of course, I was not going to get a refund. Do not use BookBaby--they ripped me off and apparently they've ripped many others off as well. If anyone out there has had the same experience, perhaps we can combine and file a class action lawsuit against BookBaby.
My ebook is still available exclusively on Amazon. It's still pricer than I would have liked, but it's 1/3 the cost of my printed book. Since it has a great many images, the file size is on the large side, and so Amazon charged more than it would, say, for an unillustrated standard novel.
Thanks to everyone who has given me and Tina their support--and for those of you who at least tried to buy my printed book. The book is also in the Kindle Unlimited Library where it can be read for free if you are a subscriber. I don't expect to sell any more copies and I've accepted that. It was a huge waste of my time and money and the trolling hasn't abated. It will go on forever and the attacks have become even more vicious. Trolls have harrassed me, my family, my clients and have even tried to get me kicked out of my art gallery. So for those of you who tell me to 'ignore them,' try telling that to my clients who have asked me what's going on and why I haven't tried to stop it. I have tried to stop it, but nothing works and very few people give a damn.
Thanks to Lews C. for contributing another cartoon...
Rand Paul has the hair, but he got Trumped.
I paid BookBaby a lot of money for distribution. I had to put a very high price on the book to make it profitable for them to print it on demand. What did BookBaby do? NOTHING. No printed books whatsover. Is BookBaby a scam? If anyone wants to start a class action suit, I would like to join it. I spent a lot of time on the book and many, many potential buyers were disappointed. My very first book was a bust thanks to BookBaby. When I asked them what was going on, nobody knew anything. I got stonewalled. Not even their president knew anything. And, of course, I did not receive a refund. BookBaby should be renamed BookScam.
GUEST CARTOONIST: Thanks to Lewis C. for this special cartoon! We hope to see more. --Ben and Tina

The Internet Hate Machine:
Bryan Carpen lives in Hollywood, Florida. He's a far-left Obama supporter who enjoys calling those with whom he disagrees "racist" and "anti-Semitic." He works as a low-level broker (failed his test before passing) at a very shady brokerage firm named EKN Financial which has been heavily feed and fined by the SEC. Bryan Carpen also fancies himself a tropical fruit tree grower, but he spends most of his time puffing on his bong (he's been arrested for drugs), playing video games and watching UFC fights. I continue to monitor this individual and I have amassed a great deal of evidence. Meanwhile, if you want to contact him and talk him out of his habit of online harrasment and bullying, shown here is his address. Bryan is typical of online bullies. He was probably bullied as a child--especially since he is gay. Powerless and weak individuals such as him tend to make up for their insecurity by getting massively tatooed (he sports a giant mango fruit blossom on his chest), but mostly they obtain satisfaction by anonymously tormenting others. Bryan Carpen's mother, Ianthe, also lives in Florida--along with Peyton Carpen who lives nearby. Bryan Carpen's sister, Indira Carpen Porzio, lives in Lindenhurst NJ. This is Bryan Carpen's hometown and he attended college at Farmingdale State College. Bryan Carpen also goes by the handle of 'mangokush_' on Twitter. He has numerous aliases that he uses on Reddit to attack me.
If anyone knows Bryan's relatives, please ask them if they're OK with their son/brother/uncle (Bryan Carpen) contstantly vandalizing Ben Garrison's work and constantly libeling and harassing Ben Garrison. Ask his mother, Ianthe Carpen, if she's OK with her little boy ruining the career of someone by intentionally vandalizing Ben's work and reputation for years simply because Carpen doesn't like Libertarians. What he is doing is ILLEGAL. It is not 'free speech' to change someone's copyrighted work into racist hate while leaving the original name on it AND claiming that the defaced version is the original. Bryan Carpen wants to shut down the free speech of his targets and presumeably extracts sadistic pleasure while doing it. He gets away with it because few lawyers are interested in taking on online libel cases. Most trolls are broke with nothing to lose. Carpen, however needs to be brought to justice. If I can successfully sue him he will lose his two cars, his crappy shitbox of a house and, I hope future earnings for his five years of harassment and defamation.
