FANBOY COMICS UNVEILS NEW WEBSITE
LOS ANGELES, CA – July 8, 2013 – Fanboy Comics (FBC) is proud to unveil its newly improved website, www.fanboycomics.net, with an updated look and enhanced features.
Founded in early 2010, Fanboy Comics is an online conglomerate of geek media, providing its readers with daily reviews, interviews, and podcasts that span the pop culture spectrum. In 2011, FBC added independent comic book publisher to its credits, when it published its first graphic novel, Something Animal. The company’s second graphic novel, Identity Thief, was released in September 2012.
With the new website launch, the FBC staff hopes to provide greater site maneuverability for their readers and stronger promotional tools for creators who seek an open and positive venue for their finished product to be viewed, reviewed, and discussed.
