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,, 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.

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.

The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a very happy International Museum Day!  Every year since 1977, International Museum Day is organized worldwide around May 18.

This day is an occasion to raise awareness on how important museums are in the development of society. 

ICOM (International Counsel of Museums) Advisory Committee organizes the theme of this event that, given the high number of countries involved, lasts a day, a weekend, a week, or even a month.

We encourage you to visit your local museum and enjoy this special day to the fullest!
