Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


San Diego Comic-Con is THIS WEEK, and the FBC Crew will be bringing you live coverage of the coolest geek news! In addition, our friends at Comikaze Expo, Geekscape, Ghost Ship, and Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment have been planning a geektastic SDCC party, and we want to give you a chance to attend!

This Thursday, July 21st, Geekscape, in partnership with Comikaze Expo, Ghost Ship, and Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment, will present The Generalissimo's Invasion Excelsior Extravaganza!


Order Now: Only a handful of tickets are being made available!

Not only will The Generalissimo himself be in attendance, but so will many comic book and film industry professionals. And, of course, you'll be hanging out with the Fanboy Comics crew for THE party event of San Diego Comic-Con.

In addition, Comikaze Expo has agreed to throw in a 2-Day Pass to Comikaze Expo in Los Angeles, November 5-6th, at the LA Convention Center (a $40 value).  You'll also get a Ghost Ship t-shirt and a limited edition Comikaze poster.

So, basically, you're getting your tickets to Comikaze Expo and more, PLUS  the chance to hang out at Thursday's most exclusive party. Comikaze is only selling a handful of these special tickets, and once they're gone, they're gone... so order yours right away.

You MUST also be 21+ to attend.

Hope to see you Thursday night!

The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a very happy Embrace Your Geekness Day!  Every year on July 13th, don't be ashamed to pull out your twelve-sided die, turn up the volume on "Fett's Vett," and wear your Jayne hat with pride.

 

Copyrighted as an official holiday by Wellcat Holidays, an organization run by Tom and Ruth Roy in Mount Gretna, PA, Embrace Your Geekness Day is marketed as a holiday for those "into dungeon games, comic books, and doing vampire dress-up." Wellcat Holidays is also responsible for Take Your Webmaster to Lunch Day, which we wholeheartedly celebrate at Fanboy Comics.

 

What do you plan to do to celebrate this day of geekiness?  Do you have a yearly tradition to commemorate this momentous event?  Don't be ashamed; we welcome your favorite geeky hobbies with open arms (and will, most likely, want to join you in celebrating!).  If anyone cares to join me, I will be rocking to MC Front-a-lot while finishing the last-minuted details on my Katniss costume for SDCC.  (Woops!  Spoiler!)

 

Yours geekly,
Barbra J. Dillon
Managing Editor, Co-Founder, & Director of Jedi Recruitment

 

 

From time to time, Fanboy Comics will promote different projects that we do not directly produce or publish.  (Although, we wish that we did!) As a sign of our support and approval, you can find these selections under the FBC ApprovedTM section of our website.  Please understand that, no matter how badly we would love to take credit, these works have been independently created and produced by the talented people attached to them.

In this spirit, Fanboy Comics announces its promotion of Batman of Suburbia, a web series from writer/director Doug Bass that shows the Dark Knight like you've never seen him before. When the guy who plays Batman outside of Grauman's Chinese Theatre decides that his life needs more meaning, he dawns the black cape in everyday society to fight the injustices of the world.  This hysterical series will keep you laughing well past the release of The Dark Knight Rises.

The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a very happy Take Your Webmaster to Lunch Day!  Every year on July 6th, be sure to show your webmaster how much you appreciate their infinite internet handiwork by treating them to lunch at the restaurant of their choice.

 

Webmasters (or webgoddesses, if you will) are the individuals that keep our websites in working order day in and day out.  From the easiest fixes (Is your computer turned on?) to the most quixotic of errors (Did you try turning it off and then on again?), these highly intelligent individuals enable us to complete our online endeavors with ease.  In order to ensure that your website continues to function as it was intended, the staff of Fanboy Comics suggests that you devote this day to lavishing your webmaster with a fabulous lunch and your immense gratitude.

 

We hope that webmasters everywhere will enjoy their special day to the fullest!  (Robert J. Peterson, FBC webmaster extraordinaire, we salute you!)

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

It is not often that we bring you the latest in music news, but this juicy tidbit is just too good to pass up!  The LA-based band Heart of Gold, www.heartofgoldonline.com, will be playing at the Fourteenth Annual Labyrinth of Jareth on Friday, July 1st, and the evening is not to be missed.

Fresh from their Midwest tour and the release of their first album, The Burning West, Heart of Gold is a band like no other.  Established in 2006 by four amazingly talented musicians [Scott Emerson, Edward LaBarbera, Christopher Spilsbury, and Tiffany LaBarbera (Palmer)], the band fuses folk and rock to create a complex sound that is bursting with emotions.  (By the way... did I mention that the H.O.G. members are hard-core comic book fans?!)

Heart of Gold is thrilled to be performing at The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball this year.  The annual event consists of two amazing nights of elaborate costumes, shows, music, art, and sculpture within the Royal Court of Sypher. Their Masquerade is a mind blowing experience for costumers, artists, and fantasy lovers from all over. The venue is incredible with its magical blend of stories, music, and costumes.

Happy Geek Pride Day!

May 25, 2011

 

The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you a very happy Geek Pride Day!  For the website that promises all things geek, we would be remiss if we did not inform our readers about one of the most important days of the year.

 

Every May 25th, geeks around the world continue an initiative to celebrate and promote geek culture.  As many of you most likely know, May 25th was selected as it was the release date of the first Star Wars film in 1977.  Tim McEachern in Albany, NY, first organized unconnected events called Geek Pride Festival and/or Geek Pride Day in 1998, and the events spread throughout America and the rest of the world.
