This one-shot was surprisingly potent. It’s the first time Mike Mignola has written something with someone other than Christopher Golden in a short while. Chris Roberson certainly brings a dynamic that’s fresh and helps build a lot out of very little.

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: Star Trek: The Next Generation's "Man of the People"
Tread Perilously's month of Star Trek continues with the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode called "Man of the People."
In 1967, Star Trek first explored the concept of parallel universes in the second season episode, "Mirror, Mirror." In it, Captain Kirk found himself in a reality in which humans had formed the Terran Empire and were brutal rulers, the opposite of the peaceful explorers the audience was so familiar with. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine revisited this universe several times, establishing that the Terran Empire was overthrown by the Klingons and the Cardassians and the human race was enslaved. In 2017, IDW began their exploration of this universe with several mini-series featuring the crew of The Next Generation. In the same continuity of DS9, remains of the Terran Empire still exist, fighting a resistance against the Klingons and Cardassians. Star Trek: The Mirror War #0 is the beginning of a 13-issue series which continues this story.
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.
Tales of an apocalypse in the making have been popular in comics for a while. Whether it’s a zombie tale like The Walking Dead or a gender extinction like Y: The Last Man, society and humanity are always in deep trouble with little hope of survival. What makes a series like Dark Horse’s Last Flight Out unique is its timing. Coming out after (and clearly influenced by) the deadly Coronavirus pandemic, this series is able to bring in elements of real life that would have seemed to be pure fantasy a mere 2 years ago.
Throughout 2020, Fanbase Press' weekly Creator Forums provided comics industry professionals with an opportunity to discuss ways to cope with the changing comics landscape in light of the Coronavirus. As a new year begins and the impact of COVID-19 continues, it is not lost on us that comic book conventions - and the opportunity to connect with industry colleagues personally and professionally - will not take place for the foreseeable future. To provide further opportunities to connect with industry creators, publishers, media, retailers, and educators during our collective quarantine, Fanbase Press will be hosting its next Comics & Coffee virtual meetup on Saturday, September 11, 2021, at 10 a.m./PT (1 p.m./EST). Fanbase Press' Comics & Coffee is a FREE hour-long Zoom session taking place every Saturday, welcoming new and experienced comics pros to a virtual meetup that aims to fill the convention-less void with networking opportunities, sharing creative successes and failures, and troubleshooting ways to navigate the industry in the weeks and months to come.
