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.

Two issues ago, the superhero family of Black Hammer made a decision to jump back into the reality of Spiral City (their own world) despite the fear of Anti-God (their greatest villain) returning with them. This was after having solved the mystery of how they ended up at the farm. Then, issue #7 happened. It was bonkers and wonderful. It took the idea of “meta” in this series to its most playful and heightened conclusion. That was what happened to the reality-hopping Colonel Weird. Now, in issue #8, we find our way to some of the other members of the team. If issue #7 was about where all of the unused ideas go to die, then issue #8 is about a world with no stories. Of all the issues of the series so far, this resembles our own, the reader’s world. The most tragic place for a superhero to end up is, of course, a place where they are no one, where they no longer mean anything to the world and they have no ambition.

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.

Issue #4 begins with all-out carnage, action, and horror sprayed on every page. You can feel the panic and the hurry continuously building as each of the panels reveals more and more of the chaois the Jinoo release throughout Harlem. Of course, the Jinnoo, it turns out, are the least of our characters’ worries, as the Sangerye family may end up losing one of their own.

Movies are a great way for kids to feel like they’re going on an adventure. With the recent release of The Sequels from Fanbase Press, I thought it might be fun to share a few movies that might’ve inspired this comic book series. Granted, The Sequels is geared toward an adult base, so as you (the parent) enjoy reading this story, your kids can get lost in some fantastic '80s movies.

In The Life of Nill, candles are personified beings who travel between cities illuminated by light, sending messages to and from the cities themselves. We’re introduced to Nill and Lueb, two candles who routinely travel out to the dark under orders of the elder. But, when Lueb decides to head out on her own, Nill chases after her, and his life is forever changed.

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: Family Matters' "Cheers Looking at You, Kid"

Tread Perilously continues its examination of ABC's TGIF lineup with its most iconic series, Family Matters. But will Steve Urkel's media cred survive their look at the episode called "Cheers Looking at You, Kid?"

The city of Skod, a city of horror in the heavens of Zhal for Adam and the Mud King, becomes that much more like Hell with the arrival of the Pied Piper. Now, horrid son against horrid son are trying to save and kill a horrid father, and a man with the world’s salvation resting on his shoulders are left, leaving the cursed citizens of Skod to deal with the repercussions of their untimely and unwelcome arrival.

Judge Dredd has been around for 42 years.  He has been the source of endless books and comics and two feature films.  So, if you’re going to take on a character with that level of pedigree and history, you'd better do it right.  Writer Paul Jenkins and artist Marco Castiello got it right.
