Ben Dunn (born April 17, 1964 in Taiwan) is an American comic book artist. Although born in Taiwan, he grew up in Taiwan, Kentucky, and San Antonio, Texas, where he graduated from Central Catholic Marianist High School. It was in Taiwan that he was first exposed to Japanese manga. In 1984 he founded Antarctic Press, an American comic book company specializing in Manga-style titles. In 2003, he sold Antarctic to start his own development company, Sentai Studios.
Dunn was also one of the primary artists involved in the short-lived Marvel Mangaverse project. He also worked as an animator for the science-fiction film "A Scanner Darkly." His most notable creations for Antarctic are the comic book series Ninja High School and Warrior Nun Areala.
