Scott chats with Ben Thompson, author of the correctly titled, Badass. A historical compilation of some of the roughest hombries to ever walk the earth. Ben, on the other hand, appears to be a post-college guy gone crazy on stories of the glories of long ago..if you can call ego maniacs who lead thousands of others to their deaths in the name of what ever they were prizing at the time as glorious. The badasses populating the pages of Badass are the most savagely awesome historical figures to ever strap on a pair of chain mail gauntlets and run screaming into battle. Author Ben Thompson—considered by many to be the Internet’s foremost expert on badassitude—has gathered together a rogues’ gallery of butt-stomping rogues, from Julius Caesar and Genghis Khan to Blackbeard, George S. Patton, and Bruce Lee. Their bone-breaking exploits are illustrated by top artist from the fields of gaming, comics, and cards—DC Comics illustrator Matt Haley and Thomas Denmark, illustrator for the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering. This is not your boring high school history—this is tough, manly, unrelentingly Badass! But, um, I am still wondering if maybe Ben could use a makeover?
