As the impact of the Coronavirus continues to reverberate throughout the comic book industry and our society as a whole, we at Fanbase Press would like to provide an opportunity for all comics industry professionals to join together in solidarity. On Saturday, October 10, at 10 a.m./PT, Fanbase Press will host its weekly Creator Forum: Group Discussion, an hour-long, informal discussion about the positive ways to cope with the changing comics landscape. Taking place via the Zoom platform (video and audio), the Creator Forum will be free to join and limited to the first 100 attendees to RSVP. The previous Group Discussions have been a great success, with creators, publishers, media professionals, and educators from across the comics medium discussing new and positive ideas. We hope that this discussion will provide an opportunity to re-connect with colleagues, to find new resources and information, and to build hope in collaborating with other comics creators.
Welcome back to the colorful science fiction series about a crew who harvests pieces from the bodies of dead space gods. These stunning, glowy gods are - you guessed it - only found when they are dead. No human in living memory has ever seen one alive.

In 2017, maestro storyteller Neil Gaiman published Norse Mythology, a collection of stories about the Gods of Asgard retold in his unique voice. Now, like so many other Gaiman titles, Dark Horse has enlisted a pantheon of artistic luminaries to adapt Gaiman's work into comic book form. The first of an eighteen part series, Norse Mythology #1 brings to life three tails of ancient mysticism and mischief.
