Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

Today, we celebrate one of the geekiest holidays of them all, Star Wars Day! To most die-hard fans, any day could be Star Wars Day. I watch the films religiously, so what makes this one day so special? Well, what started as a clever pun amongst fans, May the 4th be with you, blossomed into a full-fledged geek holiday over the years. So much so that LucasFilm embraced it and uses it as a day to make big announcements in the Star Wars community. What awesome news can we expect this year? Frankly, I'm not sure! With Episode VII just around the corner, one has to wonder exactly what else they can spring on us.

Happy Free Comic Book Day from Fanboy Comics! Given that Free Comic Book Day is our favorite day in all of geekdom, we felt that there would be no better way to celebrate than by offering readers a free sample of our geekiest content.

Last year, the Fanboy Comics staff (and a host of talented artists) joined Barnes & Noble in Valencia, CA, to celebrate their "Get Pop-Cultured™ with Barnes & Noble" events, including Marvel Day, Star Wars Day, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle - Jr. Ninja Training Day! Now, the Fanboy Comics crew and artists Chris Thorne (The 36, Skin Crawling Comics), Bryant Dillon (Something Animal, Identity Thief), and John Bring (Penguins vs. Possums) will be joining forces with Barnes & Noble and author Dan Casey for an Avengers Celebration on Saturday, May 9, 2015, at 1:00 p.m.!

Listen up, my little dots and dashes, because Morse Code Day is today, April 27th, and was created to commemorate the birthday of painter and co-inventor of the Morse Code, Samuel Morse. (Yeah, I bet you didn’t know he was a painter, too. A pretty successful painter, actually. Look it up. I bet you’ll be impressed.)

WINNERS ANNOUNCED BELOW

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


The FBC staff has returned from Star Wars Celebration 2015 with a Corellian Corvettefull of exciting coverage (The full list is available here.) and a space smuggler’s bounty of geeky Star Wars goodies destined for an FBC giveaway from a galaxy far, far away.

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


Fanboy Comics (FBC) is excited to announce the release of its 2015 Free Comic Book Day Promo on Saturday, May 2, 2015. In celebration of the annual event held by comic book retailers across the country, FBC will provide free digital downloads to its readers, which will include the first issues of The Arcs graphic novel (written by Michael Poisson and illustrated by Matt Jacobs) and Penguins vs. Possums: Volume One (by Sebastian Kadlecik, John Bring, and Lindsay Calhoon Bring)!

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, Fanbase Press invites you to join actor Samm Levine (Freaks and Geeks, Selfie) and FP 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.

It's the most wonderful time of the year! That's right, it's almost time for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! You're invited to join Fanboy Comics and a host of other comic book creators in celebrating this special day on Saturday, May 2, 2015, from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at Blastoff ComicsFest at The Federal Bar in North Hollywood, CA!

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


The FBC Staff is very excited to be attending Star Wars Celebration 2015 in order to bring you the latest updates on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as the future of the Star Wars franchise in TV, film, comic book, and video game form!
