Hey there, Wonder Fans! We're back after a two-week hiatus, and let's waste no time getting back on track.
The following is an interview with Lee Keeler (Ryan Bartoski's Emotionally Relative Trading Card Guide, Sad Bastard) and Geoffrey Golden (Dream It! Screw It!, Frankenstein's Girlfriend), writers of the new Wet Hot American Summer: Fantasy Camp roleplaying game being released by Devastator Press. Keeler, Golden, and Devastator Press have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the officially licensed role playing game (RPG) based on the classic comedy film, WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER. In this interview, Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon chats with Keeler and Golden about their love of the original film, what players can anticipate from the board setup and gameplay, the awesome backer rewards available through the Kickstarter campaign, and more!
One of the fun things about Star Trek fiction is that, over time, it has brushed up against other fictional universes – sometimes very overtly, as in the Star Trek/Green Lantern or Star Trek/Planet of the Apes comics of recent years, and going at least as far back as some peculiar crossovers with the X-Men in the 1990s. Sometimes, though, these cross-dimensional encounters have to be more referential than that, for one reason or other, and that is where New Visions #15 exists. At least, I think so.
I have never been a big fan of Steven Moffat’s run on Doctor Who; however, even I can admit that Series 10 is off to a great start. With “The Pilot,” we have started the final season for both Moffat and star Peter Capaldi, leading to them handing off the baton to writer Chris Chibnall and the as-yet-unnamed Thirteenth Doctor this Christmas.
This series creatively meshes a variety of pre-existing characters in a freshly re-imagined Victorian London universe. Kim Newman’s brilliant script is a true tribute to literature and an artistic creation beyond Bram Stoker’s classic novel. She uses anarchists, criminals, and artists from novels, short stories, films, and even operas as characters coexisting in her version of Victorian London. As I read, I found myself searching the characters’ names and reading up on their original roles in other works. The interactions between these characters make the tale unique and creative. I appreciate that the characters are not popular, because it allowed me to enjoy learning about lesser-known figures and their stories. (I may need to go and read The Princess Casamassima after reading this series!) When a work can inspire and encourage a reader to research and explore other works, I find that to be impressive.
