Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

The Staff of Fanboy Comics is excited to announce a big distribution deal this week in the independent comic book publishing world.  Publishers Group West (PGW), a member of the Perseus Books Group, will begin distributing both front and back list titles from up-and-coming independent graphic novel publisher Archaia Entertainment, LLC.  

Archaia is widely known throughout the graphic novel community for producing visually stunning works that seek to transform the mind, with titles including Mouse Guard, Dapper Men, The Killer, and the entire line of The Jim Henson Company graphic novels.  As reported by Ain’t It Cool News, it was named Graphic Novel Publisher of the Year and received nine Eisner Award nominations in 2011.  Archaia’s domestic and international successes will continue to find large audiences, as PGW is set to distribute the titles to the U.S. and Canada.  According to Archaia CEO PJ Bickett, “We are proud to be forging powerful partnerships with industry leaders in all aspects of our business, underscoring Archaia’s arrival as a substantial player within the publishing world.  PGW represents our newest prestigious partner, a world-class distributor that has the unique ability to expand our company’s titles across the book trade, educational, library, and international markets.”

From time to time, Fanboy Comics will promote different projects that we do not directly produce or publish.  (Although, we wish that we did!) As a sign of our support and approval, you can find these selections under the FBC ApprovedTM section of our website.  Please understand that, no matter how badly we would love to take credit, these works have been independently created and produced by the talented people attached to them.

In this spirit, Fanboy Comics announces its promotion of the epic, yet funny, web series The End. written by Bryan Mayer and directed by Peter Harmon. Taking place in a future where robots have taken over and there are only a few survivors left, The End. is a post-apocalyptic buddy comedy which is entertaining, quirky, and full of geek references to keep you coming back every Friday for the next episode!

Happy Geek Pride Day!

May 25, 2011

 

The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you a very happy Geek Pride Day!  For the website that promises all things geek, we would be remiss if we did not inform our readers about one of the most important days of the year.

 

Every May 25th, geeks around the world continue an initiative to celebrate and promote geek culture.  As many of you most likely know, May 25th was selected as it was the release date of the first Star Wars film in 1977.  Tim McEachern in Albany, NY, first organized unconnected events called Geek Pride Festival and/or Geek Pride Day in 1998, and the events spread throughout America and the rest of the world.

 

The End. A Web Series.

The robots have taken over and there are only a few survivors left.
