Polarity 1Welcome back to The Preview Party, the blog that looks at the coolest, new comic books and graphic novels available to pre-order from this month’s Previews magazine.

While flipping through Previews, a beautiful cover caught my eye for a book called Polarity. As I read more about the book, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the idea of Say Anything front man Max Bemis writing a comic about a bipolar man who get superpowers whenever he goes off his meds. Luckily, I was able to reach out to BOOM! Studios, the book's publisher, to set up an interview with Bemis. Here’s what he had to say about this unique, new miniseries.

Annie EdisonLove is in the air at Fanboy Comics!  In this magical month of romance and enchantment, the FBC Staff and Contributors decided to take a moment to stop and smell the roses.  In the week leading up to Valentine's Day, a few members of the Fanboy Comics crew will be sharing their very personal "Love Letters" with our readers, addressed to the ones that they adore the most. 

 


To Annie,

At last the heeded Season Four is here.
At last the peacock readies up to start
The show Community. When you appear,
At last the wound will heal within my heart.

 

Justified S4E6First of all, you simply have to love the title of this episode, especially when the final image of last week’s installment was a gruesomely severed foot.

I mentioned that the episode from a couple of weeks ago (I believe it was Episode Four) was really dull and almost nothing happened that moved the season-long story arc about the long-missing Drew Thompson forward in any way.  Tonight, we got almost too much plot, but it made for a lively episode.

From Atomic Robo to Peeta from The Hunger Games, the Fanboy Comics staffers are really just big softies under that geeky exterior.  We hope that you will enjoy this glimpse into the minds (and hearts) of Fanboy Comics!

 

Darwin DayFebruary 12, 2013

 

The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a Happy International Darwin Day!  On this special day, just over 200 years ago, evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin was born, and we want to do our part to celebrate his life and his work.  (PS: Abraham Lincoln was born on the same day . . . but he will have his own holiday next week.  Let's give Darwin his own moment in the spotlight.)

 

Alabaster WolvesPulled from the pages of Caitlin Kiernan’s award-winning fiction, Dancy Flammarion makes the leap from prose to graphic novel in one chilling movement, now captured in Dark Horse’s new trade, Alabaster: Wolves.

Guided by her guardian angel, Dancy travels the backroads of the haunted deep South, fighting evil where she comes across it.  But, before you think this is some pale, Buffy the Vampire Slayer pastiche, Dancy is nobody’s innocent poppet.  A slender, albino waif of a girl, under a brooding South Carolina sky, Dancy makes hard, desperate choices as she makes her way through a cursed, southern town and is forced to live with the circumstances, even if death is the easier alternative.

 

The Curse of DraculaMarv Wolfman needs no introduction to those familiar with comics. He made his mark with The Tomb of Dracula in the early seventies along with artist Gene Colan, and went on to become a mainstay in both Marvel and DC. Dark Horse presents the hardcover edition of Wolfman’s second stab at the Prince of Darkness, The Curse of Dracula.

Originally published in three issues in 1998, The Curse of Dracula tells a new tale.

 

SW 2Dark Horse brings out the big guns for its new Star Wars series. Writer Brian Wood, who seems to be writing every top notch book these days, helms the ship. Legendary artist Alex Ross delivers covers that rival even the classic Star Wars movie posters, while artist Carlos D’Anda and colorist Gabe Eltaeb capture the look and feel of the iconic universe. This isn’t just some Star Wars spinoff set in the distant past or far-flung future of the extended universe. This is a story set in between Episodes IV and V. Even better, this is a story featuring Han, Luke, and Leia with real stakes affecting the fledgling Rebellion.

Dear Trekkies,

I know that you have a wide range of opinions about what is considered to be the best of the Star Trek television shows, but I wanted to set the record straight concerning my feelings on the matter.  All of the shows have their positive sides—yes, even Enterprise, which appears to have a massive hate-on at times from you—but I believe that the one show that really has the best appeal to a wide variety of circles is Deep Space Nine.

My Dearest Buffy,

First, let me express my deepest apologies for requiring a holiday like Valentine’s Day to declare not only my love for you but also my unending respect. To paraphrase Ron Swanson, Valentine’s Day was invented by Hallmark to sell cards. We shouldn’t leave these matters of the heart to be spoken on specified days on the calendar, and, for that, I ask you to forgive me.

I am a better man today because of you, Buffy Anne Summers, and I mean that in the most literal way possible.
