For years, geeks around the globe - no matter if they identify as gamers or comic book fans, have enjoyed adaptations of each others' properties.   It only makes sense that video games have found their way into the sequential art medium, and that comic books have been translated to popular games like those within the Batman: Arkham series.  Until today, never before had an established video game property become a web comic. Com2uS, the developer and publisher of bestselling mobile game Golf Star, announced today a partnership with Tapastic, the leading publisher and distribution platform for web comics, to publish an original web comic based on Golf Star characters.

For more information regarding the new partnership and what fans can expect from Golf Star web comic, please see the full press release below.

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

Indie artist and designer Jeffrey Veregge has made a career for himself out of his lifetime love affair with comic books, toys, TV, and film. A member of the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe, Veregge has blended his passions, his creativity, and his Native perspective into an art style that is all his own.  Having recently been named by ArtTour International Magazine as one of the Top 60 Masters of Contemporary Art for 2013, he decided to celebrate the honor by providing FBC with several limited edition art prints and t-shirts to give away to our readers.

Fanboy Comics is always excited to support indie publishers, which is why I am thrilled to inform you that Father Robot, the comic book series created by Kristopher White (The Thirty Six) and Sam Garland, has found a home with publisher 215 Ink.

The series is about the world’s first self-aware mech on a mission to rescue a little girl from a warzone . . . but the robot happens to believe it is her Dad.  For full details regarding Father Robot (which will be available at Comikaze Expo this weekend), please see the official press release below.

Digital studio Madefire, which made big news earlier this year for its partnership with publishers like IDW, Top Cow, and BOOM!

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

Indie comic book creator Ovi Demetrian Jr. recently released the first issue of his series, Hacktivity, to rave reviews!  Hacktivity is the story of Shawn Harris, a hacktivist (a.k.a. a software programmer/activist) who pushed the boundaries one step too far. On trial for breaking into FBI systems, he was found guilty and sentenced to 30 years in maximum security prison. As his trial gained media attention, people began to learn that the facts of the case weren't so clear cut, and other hackers decided to take matters into their own hands. 

To celebrate the release of the series' first issue, Demetrian has generously provided us with 5 (Yes, 5!) digital copies of the comic to give away to our readers.
