This is the first article from Vice News’ latest issue, out today.
In the video above, Peter Benchly talks about the inspiration for his own “Pilot” comic book series, which he wrote with a friend after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
It is the same comic that won the 2008 Academy Award for best animated short.
Benchley is currently recovering from his diagnosis, which was diagnosed when he was only 25 years old.
He was diagnosed at age 37 with stage 4 pancreatic carcinoma.
His book is about a group of friends who live in a town called Pompano Beach, Florida, and it focuses on the lives of the residents and the surrounding town.
“Pompano has been known for its small but passionate community, and Peter Benchleys story and the characters we see there has inspired me,” said Benchley.
“In my personal life, I’ve always been a huge fan of the pilot show ‘Star Trek’ and the pilot pilot of ‘The Twilight Zone’ so the idea of making a comic about a pilot pilot coming to Pompa Beach was just a perfect fit for me.”
In the comic, we see the town of Pompania living in the past as the residents, who have no recollection of the town at all, look on.
In another scene, a pilot is on his way to his hometown, when he’s stopped by the townspeople for being late for work.
“A pilot with a full stomach and an empty stomach, he has no idea what he’s missing,” said the writer.
“And when he discovers he’s being followed, he gets a glimpse of the past and realizes that he’s not alone.”
The characters in the book are based on characters from the pilot series.
Benchly said he and his friend, Chris Gaffney, have been writing the story for about two years.
“I had been in a relationship and was doing my college studies at the time so I was kind of trying to be like, ‘I’ll just write the book when I’m in my 30s, and then when I get older I’ll take a break and work on a new comic,'” he said.
Benchlys book, “Pilots,” has been praised for its storytelling, and many of the people in the town have been inspired by the characters in his comic.
The townspeakers also love the story because it tells the story of the Pilots as they were, and their lives, after the show ended.
The story will be updated with more characters and stories as the project progresses, Benchley said.
“The pilot episode is the one where we’re really trying to tell the story from the Pilot’s perspective, and the stories we tell from that point of view are so much more personal,” he said in the video.
“It really is about the Pilot, and he’s really the main character.”
Benchley was diagnosed on May 26, 2018, after he suffered from pancreatic inflammation and a cancerous growth in his pancreas.
Benchmore has been undergoing chemotherapy for about a year and has not been able to work for six months.
He said he was feeling much better after his chemotherapy, and his cancer was slowly going down.
“After the chemo, I was so sick, I had to go to the hospital for an IV drip to drain my blood,” he told Vice News.
“At the time, it was a very scary time, so the doctors were really scared.
I couldn’t go outside, so I went to the bathroom to urinate and pee and then I was on the toilet and the nurse came by and said, ‘Look, look, you’re going to have to take a shower now,'” he recalled.
Benchriley said the nurse gave him the cold shower, which left him feeling exhausted.
Bench was allowed to come home and was treated by his doctor for the night.
He awoke at 2 a.m. on the next morning to find he was very cold.
“That was the last time I saw him,” he recalled of the day he woke up.
“Then I woke up at 4 a.ms. to have an ambulance coming and I had no recollection.
I remember going to the bed and then getting the news that he had died.”
Bench was told his name was published in the newspapers on the day of his death, but he said he didn’t realize his name had been mentioned until later that day.
“When I learned that, I kind of lost it,” he explained.
“What I knew was, I got the news in the paper, I didn’t think, ‘Oh, that was a big deal.'”
“I think I’ll always have that memory, but that was probably a good day.”
Benchly says he had hoped that his family would be able to make it through this, but it wasn’t an easy situation
