About Cautionary Comics
Cautionary Comics was created out of from Benjamin L. Henderson’s philosophy on creating comic books based on STORY, Character, Action, and Fun alone! This idea, combined with his passion for leaving his stories behind, got his wheels turning! Cautionary Comics was finally brought to life after a lot of hard work and a small round of Angel Investment from friends at a Silicon Valley investment group.
