The Arkham Sessions, Ep. 127 - "BTAS Wrap-Up"
Fantasy is one of those genres that comes in waves. Sometimes, we’re lousy with good fantasy material, and, sometimes, it’s a dearth so severe, we’re begging for even a scrap of magical realism. Throughout the past few decades, though, comic books have been putting in the legwork to produce new and interesting fantasy concepts that usually take television and film a few years to catch up on. Shades of Magic Volume 1: The Steel Prince caught my eye for this exact reason; it looked like it could be something entirely new.

I grew up on anime and manga in the '90s, but this was my first time delving into Berserk, and I’m glad I did. It’s a wild, audacious, ridiculous romp. Much of the manga and anime from that era has a very specific feel to it: The tropes were always being leaned into pretty heavily, with bad guys that you couldn’t kill and instead only got bigger when you defeated them, action scenes that were only just barely discernible, and a kooky sidekick whose style didn’t match anything else.
What does Batman mean to the world? How do parents explain such a character to their kids? As a child, I was first introduced to Batman in possibly the best way: Batman, the ‘60s television show. This show is non-threatening and presents danger in a comical way that makes it a wonderful introduction to the Caped Crusader.

If you're a frequent reader of Fanbase Press, you might remember that I reviewed the first volume of Mob Psycho 100 a few months ago. That strange manga, brought to us by the same artist responsible for the incredible One Punch Man, charmed me with its bizarre narrative and simplistic art style. Well, we're back for round two with Mob Psycho 100 Volume 2.
In The Girl in the Bay, Kathy Sartori wakes up after a traumatic experience to find that many years have passed, seemingly in the blink of an eye. The world around her has changed drastically, while she remains the same. It’s a story that’s been done many times before, from Rip Van Winkle to Flight of the Navigator. But it’s never been done like this. For one thing, the story and the supernatural elements have strong ties to the teachings of Buddhism, which gives the comic a bit of a different flavor than is typical in Western comics.
