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.
Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:
The Staff of Fanboy Comics is happy to share some very exciting news this morning! Comikaze Expo, a pop culture expo featuring comics, horror, sci-fi, and gaming genres, has announced its event dates and a few special guests for Los Angeles this year! Below, please find the official press release for the convention, which will no doubt be the comic event of the year here in LA. [Image, Right - Poster by Crowded Teeth (http://crowdedteeth.com/)]

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. Museum and Memory is the theme of International Museum Day 2011.
We encourage you to visit your local museum and enjoy this special day to the fullest!
Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:
It is with great joy that the FBC Staff and I welcome you to our shiny new website! We hope that you will enjoy the vibrant new look and feel of the site, as it offers easy access to our Blogs, Podcasts, Interviews, and Publishing. As a visitor, you will be able to create your own user profile and participate in forum discussions for all of our content!
In addition to providing you with the latest in geek news, Fanboy Comics strives to assist artists of all kinds in the production and promotion of their art. For this reason, we designed the new website to offer greater prominence and visibility for creators who wish to promote their work through our company. FBC offers a vast array of services to artists, including assistance with development, publishing, and promotion, as well as the opportunity to work with a community of creative professionals. Under the Publishing section, you will find projects that are currently being produced by Fanboy Comics.
