I recently sat down with awesome creator, avid indie supporter, and my friend Michael Avon Oeming before Turkey Day for my latest inspirational installment of Indie and the Geek.
Demonic possession. The idea of losing control of your body and being trapped inside, forced to watch the horrors the entity that's taken over inflicts on those around you. Even if the possession is discovered, it's a long, difficult fight to exorcise the creature, and even more difficult to keep the host alive, never mind sane, by the time all is said and done.
On one of those rare, lazy Saturday nights not long ago while perusing the Netflix catalogue, I stumbled across yet another British gem of a film titled The Trip. It follows two middle-aged friends on a gourmet food-finding foray in the North of England. It’s a lot like Sideways only with more subtlety and nuance. Also, British accents and guys trying to mimic Michael Caine. Literally. It was a fascinating, little film which peaks into the psyche of the middle-aged man surrounded by grand vistas and delicious food. And, as British cinema so often does, it leaves you wanting a little more.
Aside from watching DBZ Abridged and Red vs. Blue—which are both enjoyable experiences—I haven’t seen many online series, but I must admit that this one is very unusual. I’m not saying that it is a bad series, but it is very different than anything else I’ve watched, yet similar in many ways. Despite being on the Internet and not broadcast on a major television network, it is very much like other situational comedies, with just a lesser broadcast time and audience. For adventurous enjoyment, check the series out at www.husbandstheseries.com.

In this interview, Fanboy Comics Senior Contributor Kristine Chester chats with Fuentes and Clarey about their collaborative process for creating AOS, how their influences and inspirations were reflected within the series, and when readers can anticipate the next volume to be released.

I’m a webcomics junkie, and I’m always in the market for new artistic endeavors to take up what little free time I have, and so I was more than happy to take a look at this new series that I had never heard of before. I can’t say that I fully understand what’s going on in the comic, but, then again, there are a lot of online comics that I don’t completely understand and yet still enjoy. I’m not really sure what to expect concerning the future of the comic, but I know that I am going to be eagerly awaiting the release of “chapter two” so as to figure out just what Camille is going to do. The entirety of Chapter One, as well as other information, can be found at the comic’s website, www.raptureburgers.com.
UPDATE: Contest Winners Announced!!!
Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:
It’s not even his name, but a simple governmental position, and still the utterance of The Governor chills the blood of any fan of The Walking Dead. While readers of the graphic novels know what horrors The Governor is capable of and TV viewers are just starting to learn how dark Philip’s soul really is, the undeniable villain of The Walking Dead is a captivating figure in any medium, as proven by the release of The Walking Dead novels, published by Thomas Dunne Books and written by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga.
The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor and The Walking Dead: Road to Woodbury are the first two parts of a trilogy that reveals the mysterious and twisted origin of The Governor and his savage safe haven of Woodbury. Here’s how the books are described in the official press release for The Walking Dead: Road to Woodbury:
