Fanboy Comics is proud to announce the upcoming release of its next graphic novel, Identity Thief, on September 25, 2012. In the following interviews, the creators of the book talk about what readers can expect from the story.
The story of this movie begins in reality. Years ago, a man placed an ad in a real newspaper looking for “someone to go back in time with” him. He went on to write, “This is not a joke . . . Must bring your own weapons. Safety Not Guaranteed. I’ve only done this once before.” Screenwriter Derek Connelly obtained the rights to this infamous ad, and it is now the basis of the surprisingly touching and completely entertaining film, Safety Not Guaranteed.
The comic book event of the summer is nigh! Before Watchmen, the much-anticipated prequel series to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen, will consist of seven limited series and an epilogue one-shot. Stay tuned, as the Fanboy Comics crew will be reviewing each title as it is released. Hurm.
“If I were going with you, we'd be dating, so instead I'll just . . . come with you.” Yeah, it's like that. The bulk of this issue is all about Nite Owl working alongside the Twilight Lady. She feels a lot like Catwoman in tone and playfulness, but, unlike Batman, Nite Owl is not stoic or confident but a shy, nerdy mess when Twilight uses her feminine wiles on him. The banter manages to be both funny and sexy all the way to the bedroom with what has got to be one of the best Before Watchmen moments taking place when they need to figure out the . . . er . . . costume situation.

As with the previous two episodes, I enjoyed “A Town Called Mercy”; however, it felt too isolated from everything else and added to the detachment that this series is suffering from.
The huge and obvious selling point in these comics is the humor; however, I was immediately put on notice when I scanned the issues and saw the cover of Issue #2. Apparently, there is nothing more awkward than peeing, while the adjacent urinal is being used by a Slave Leia. For the record, yes, the rest of this issue is as progressive about gender roles as the cover. Now, before I dog the book for its juvenile humor, I have to admit that it knows that it is immature and it owns it. I think that the book really improved when they hit Issue #3 and took off by Issue #4. These issues do a much better job of portraying the characters as more dimensional. I also liked the jokes better. In fact, the fourth issue had a really impressive plot twist and great pacing.
When last we saw Commander Flick Fleebus, he had narrowly escaped the might of the Krill armada with the invaluable Nexus Sphere in tow. Now crash-landed on the strange, forbidden planet Earth, Flick must locate the Sphere, his robotic companion Trion, and find a way off the planet while evading the Krill military. Oblivious to all of this is bug exterminator, Rigby Pinkerton, who is currently living with his mother following his divorce and is trying to find a new purpose to his life.

When one thinks of a beautiful, round-faced British singer with a booming voice, one wouldn't be too far off to guess that one may be referring to Adele; however, the cherubic, little songstress I'm here to discuss is Sophia Grace.
