Samuel Morse(Click here for Morse Code translation.)

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. 

Monsters UniversityDear Fanboy Comics Readers:


The brand new trailer for Disney/Pixar's Monsters University has been released on Yahoo! Movies and Disney.com!

Synopsis: Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But, during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.

April 19, 2013

 

Today is April 19th, and you know what that means, kiddies. According to the short-lived fan favorite The Sarah Connor Chronicles, today is Skynet Activation Day!

As any well-educated fanboy knows, Skynet is the artificially intelligent computer system that serves as a major villain in the Terminator franchise. According to James Cameron's Terminator lore, Skynet was originally installed into the U.S. military mainframe to control the national arsenal on August 4, 1997.  (Despite this fact, The Sarah Connor Chronicles sees this date a little differently.)

Solestar Signing GAYou're invited to join the creators of Solestar for a graphic novel signing on Wednesday, April 24th, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles, CA

Golden Apple will continue its monthly wine mixer series by hosting comic book creator Siike Donnelly and a number of the 70+ artists who contributed to the jam-style graphic novel, SolestarSolestar is an original superhero story whose protagonist has only 24 hours to live.  It features artwork donated by over 70 different artists and educational information regarding brain aneurysms, the proceeds of which will go to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation. 

As a brain aneurysm survivor, Donnelly was forced to rebuild his speech patterns and relearn how to walk.  With his company, The Naïve Project, he led a successful Kickstarter campaign to publish Solestar in early 2013.  According to Donnelly, “I wanted to create a superhero that knew loss right from the start. It’s kind of the staple when creating someone with powers. They have to come from tragedy to obtain victory. This is something I now understand on a personal level. Hopefully, victory follows my tragedy with this project.”
