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, July 11, at 10 a.m./PST, 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.

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.

While it can be argued that the DC Extended Universe has struggled on the silver screen, the DC Animated Movie Universe has flourished in the direct-to-DVD market well beyond expectations, reinterpreting several historically important events in DC Comics history and building a connection between its various metahuman superheroes that feels genuine, believable, and - perhaps most importantly - earned. DC Animated’s Justice League Dark: Apokolips War is the final chapter in the 15-movie arc that makes up the DCAMU and delivers an appropriately thrilling, epic, and touching conclusion to a story audiences have been following since 2013.

If you and your kiddos are looking for a little space adventure, July is the perfect opportunity to stretch your imagination with science and space exploration happening with NASA’s Perseverance Rover.
