Fanbase Press is proud to announce that its flagship podcast, The Fanbase Weekly, will return for its fourth season on Monday, January 21, 2019!

I haven’t reviewed an issue of Deadly Class, a comic about a training ground for teenage assassins set in 1987, but it is one of the most unhinged, frenetic, visceral, unapologetically twisted comics around. It’s the Wizarding World for those who need a little more anarchy and chaos in their lives. It certainly doesn’t take four novels before a single character meets their demise. It is a pure adrenaline rush of joy and anxiety brought on by hypertension and violence. We have Rick Remender (writer) and Wesley Craig (artist) through Image Comics to thank for this perverse, character-driven, action extravaganza.
Finding Felicity is a podcast where Pomonok Entertainment's Teresa Jusino, a Felicity newbie, chats with rotating guest co-hosts who are already Felicity fans to talk about life, love, and the pursuit of happiness through the prism of this coming-of-age television drama created by J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves.
Unfortunately for Eric, igniting a gang war doesn’t just wipe out the “bad guys,” and local law enforcement swoops in to investigate the sudden rekindling of hostilities. (The two gangs had a truce.) Meanwhile, our vigilante has fled the scene carrying newswoman Yvonne Price to safety on the back of his motorcycle; however, the Devil Marauders haven’t been entirely wiped out, and one straggler is willing to tap into some occult texts to find an opponent no one in our world has ever seen.
AHOY Comics will soon release the final issue of season 1 of Captain Ginger, its critically acclaimed title featuring cats in space. The publisher has been very generous to the Fanbase Press staff, as we are now able to share an advance preview of Captain Ginger #4 prior to the January 16th release date!
I first learned about author Rebecca Roanhorse while I was vending at WorldCon 76 last year. (She won the John W. Campbell award for Best New Writer.) I didn’t get a chance to meet her (though GRRM wandered by the table a few times); however, I did make a point to add her book to my Christmas list and was not disappointed.
Modern Fantasy is a triumph of style with a ton of heart to spare. With nods to the fantasy genre, but more specifically Dungeons & Dragons, this story reads like something made by Judd Apatow. It’s funny, weird, and relatively progressive. Though it might share some similarities with other fantasy parody content as of late (i.e., Disenchanted), let that not sway you from giving it a shot. In my opinion, this is better than Disenchanted and has much more to offer.
