Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:
Do you find yourself constantly muttering, "You know nothing, Jon Snow," when a friend says something foolish? Do you refer to your Xbox as "my precious?" If I said, "You remind me of the babe," would you know what to say next? Are you ready for the next Dagorhir event? If you answered "Yes!" to any of these questions, then you will not want to miss The Quest, an epic TV show that is searching for people just like you!
At WonderCon 2013, screenwriter Bob Goodman talks with Fanboy Comics' Bryant Dillon about his work on the new DC animated feature, Superman: Unbound, and what his DC animated dream project would be.
For over a year, the staff of Fanboy Comics has informed its readers about exciting Kickstarter campaigns for projects that are worthy of your hard-earned money. As supporters of independent creators of all mediums, we love doing our part to spread the word about high quality projects and talented creators. In fact, for the very first time on the FBC website, today's edition of "The Kickstarter Report" will focus on a Kickstarter campaign that has already surpassed its fundraising goal; however, the project in question is so good, that we could not resist the opportunity to push the campaign well over its stretch goal!
Author Justin Robinson, best known for the novels Undead on Arrival, Mr. Blank, The Dollmaker, and Nerve Zero, is at it again with his latest book, Coldheart. The new urban fantasy novella is set in San Francisco, which has been ravaged by a blizzard, while its residents live in fear of a cannibalistic killer stalking the streets and a rash of abductions targeting people seemingly at random. Throughout this chaos, only one man has the ability to put together the pieces of the mysteries affecting the people of the city. The catch? The man must also fight the demons of his own mental illness, unsure if the clues that he is finding are real or figments of his imagination.
At WonderCon 2013, Fanboy Comics Creative Director Sam Rhodes chats with casting and voice director Andrea Romano about her work on the latest DC animated film, Superman: Unbound.
For a book with the word “mind” in it, Mind MGMT requires a surprising amount of thought, go figure. This is a comic of conspiracies and intrigue and will require a second and maybe a third read to fully appreciate all the moving pieces.
After being absent for issues, Prince Robot IV is back and still destined for the planet Quietus in an effort to anticipate Alana and Marko's next destination to meet famed author D. Oswald Heist. Like when The Will returned, it's good to have IV back in action.

The world is still recovering from the aftermath of “The Death of Everyone,” and it is up to Cecil Stedman to return everything to the status quo. This issue picks up at the end of Invincible #100 and follows Cecil as he deals with the massive, world-wide cleanup.
At WonderCon this year, I had the pleasure of attending a screening of the latest Doctor Who episode, “The Bells of Saint John.” Being able to see the episode on the big screen with a throng of fellow fans was quite an enjoyable experience.
"We all go a little mad sometimes." - Norman Bates
Ain't that the truth? I was so mad when I heard they were making a show called Bates Motel. I figured it was A&E jumping on the success train of hour-long horror dramas ignited by Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story, as Hollywood is cannibalistic. If a fresh idea is successful, they must suck dry the last ire of moisture from the creative marrow. Although over-the-top and eye roll worthy at times, Fox's The Following is a welcome addition to the horror trend tip. It's a knock off of Silence of the Lambs meets Sister Wives, but intriguing nonetheless. So, I figured, what the heck? I'll give Bates Motel a shot. It's a great concept. If they do it right, it could be killer!
