“Hell is empty, and all the devils are here.”
-- William Shakespeare, The Tempest

At San Diego Comic-Con 2018, Fanbase Press' Michele Brittany talks with writer and composer Nick Keller (Bedtime Games, Unikitty!) about his new title with Dark Horse Comics, his love of the horror genre, and more.

Announced a year ago, August 14 will see the release of Idle Days from publisher First Second Books. The brainchild of writer Thomas Desaulniers-Brousseau and artist Simon LeClerc, the story is about a young Canadian man, Jerome, who refused to serve his country in combat during World War II. Staying out of sight, he takes up residence with his none-too-talkative grandfather in a forest house with a dubious past. The cover conveys tension as all eyes – Jerome, cat, dog, house and skull – are staring at the reader. The cover is not short on symbolism, as each item derives its meaning as the story unfolds.  

The following is an interview with Michael Kogge and Dan Parsons that was recorded during San Diego Comic-Con 2018 and then transcribed by Fanbase Press’ Bryant Dillon. In this interview, Fanbase Press Editorials Manager Michele Brittany talks with Kogge and Parsons regarding their collaboration on Empire of the Wolf, their upcoming project titled Sherlock Holmes: Brothers of Bakerstreet, and more!

A professional.
A man of few scruples, nerves of steel,
and a steady trigger finger, but also,
a man on the verge of cracking.
