Like a bucking bronco, Grass Kings #12 suddenly kicks! It’s an about-face shift in tone from the last few issues which were gradual and poetic. It made me wonder if I had missed reading an issue. This sudden shift has scattered the sheep. Characters that were on a specific trajectory have now been sent reeling in every other direction. You start poking around in the ash, and you’re bound to get the fire started again. I’m getting ahead of myself…

Love is in the air at Fanbase Press!  In this magical month of romance and enchantment, the Fanbase Press Staff and Contributors decided to stop and smell the roses. Throughout the week of Valentine’s Day, a few members of the Fanbase Press crew will be sharing their personal love letters to the areas of geekdom they adore the most.

In The Fanbase Weekly, the Fanbase Press staff and a host of special guests from across the pop culture spectrum discuss the top geek stories of the week.

In this episode, the Fanbase Press staff welcomes guests Giulie Speziani (Cash & Carrie, Advance Death Saves) and Robert Harrington (Sleigher: The Heavy Metal Santa Claus) of Ginger Rabbit Studios to discuss the latest geek news stories of the week, including the lack of diversity in the Star Wars films' creative teams, the history of Wakanda, the launch of the Falcon Heavy, and our reactions to the trailers released this week.

I love this book. To its very core. It’s a character-driven, science fiction adventure, high stakes coming-of-age story. I can see the trail of inspiration, the creative landmarks that carved a way through history to get here: Godzilla, Akira, Evangelion, and countless others. It feels of the same value, the same creative energies, but it never steals, and it never mirrors.

The best way to describe House of Demons is a collage of past, present, future, reality, surreal, imagined, and alternative timelines, all wrapped into one movie. All these things are woven together into a tapestry with horror as its backdrop. But, it is much more than just a horror movie. It’s a story of redemption and acceptance… should any of the characters find it while surviving a battle with demons.

Comic book publisher Oni Press will soon release the first collected volume of Kim Reaper, a series written and illustrated by Sarah Graley, on Wednesday, February 14, 2018. The publisher has been very generous to the Fanbase Press staff, as we are now able to share an advance preview!
