October 21, 2015, was the date that Doc Brown, Marty McFly, and Jennifer Parker visited in Back to the Future: Part II, and, by no mere coincidence, 2015 is the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. (It's a nice round number, after all.) For that reason, on the 21st of every month leading up to the big day, Fanboy Comics invites you to join actor Samm Levine (Freaks and Geeks, Selfie) and FBC Senior Contributor Drew Siragusa as they revisit the locations used in the BTTF films. Along the way, they will be joined by contributors writing about what Back to the Future means to them and how it has influenced their lives over the past three decades.

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


The FBC staff has returned from San Diego Comic-Con 2015 with a ton of exciting con coverage and interviews (The full list is available here.) and a good amount of SDCC swag to share with our readers who didn’t make it to the biggest con of the year!

In 1979, the word A L I E N was spelled out across the top of an ominous movie poster, conveying a sense of foreboding of something unknown. An eerie, yellow light seeped out of the egg-shaped space pod with the tagline: In space no one can hear you scream. Audiences were drawn along with the Nostromo crew as they explored the mysterious, abandoned ship on LV-426 and encountered a new and hostile alien species. It was one of the first movies to successfully combine science fiction and horror in an interstellar setting, spawning several inferior imitations in the 1980s while also inspiring standout films that furthered the genre, such as Event Horizon (1997), Pitch Black (2000), Sunshine (2007), and Europa Report (2013). While it may have seemed like space horror was a new genre after the release of Ridley Scott’s film, the genre has a rich history that took hold of movie audience-goers almost thirty years prior with the space horror films that could best be classified as invasion films. With a plethora of films, much has been written about science fiction, horror, or on individual films (mostly the Alien franchise), yet surprisingly, little analysis can be found on space horror as its own genre in cinema. It was with this gap that I pitched a book idea, was accepted, and now have a tentative title, Essays on Space Horror in Films, 1950s – 2000s. Now, it’s onto the next step, and here is where you come in.

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


Today is August 4th, and you know what that means, dear readers. Only 25 more days until nuclear holocaust and the machine revolution!

As many fanboys and fangirls know, Skynet is the artificially intelligent computer system that serves as a major villain in the Terminator franchise. According to James Cameron's Terminator lore, Skynet was originally installed into the U.S. military mainframe to control the national arsenal on August 4, 1997. (Don't worry, Sarah Connor Chronicles fans. We will celebrate your Activation Day in April.) It was only 25 days later, on August 29th, that Skynet became self-aware and decided to exterminate the human race.

Comic book publisher OSSM Comics (in conjunction with Image Comics) will soon be releasing the fourth issue of Sons of the Devil, a series created by Brian Buccellato (Flash, Detective Comics, The Black Bat) and illustrated by Toni Infante. The publisher has been very generous to the Fanboy Comics staff, as we are now able to share an advance preview of the Issue #4!
