LOS ANGELES, CA – November 18, 2013 – The creators of the epic comic book series Penguins vs. Possums are proud to announce that their characters will soon come to life with the release of one-of-a-kind, hand-sculpted and painted figurines! Set to premiere at Long Beach Comic & Horror Con 2013, characters Emperor Xiao, Zolin (Captain of the Guard), and The Chosen One will leap off comic book pages and onto the convention floor.
When the economic downturn took Derek Adnams’ job, he made an eminently practical decision: he would become a comic book writer. He recently won the UcreateComics and Write Brothers comic book scripting competition and was awarded a contract to write SUITZ #2. Over the next few weeks, Fanboy Comics will be chronicling Adnams’ journey throughout the creative process, as UcreateComics and Write Brothers will assist him in going from concept to development and production and, finally, to finished product. This is his story.

The first thing I can remember seeing is Amazing Spider Man #188. That was in 1979, and although I couldn’t read, I’d look at the pictures and make up words to go along with them. In high school I started writing comic books properly, following the writers whose talent spoke to my teenage wasteland mentality – people like Frank Miller, Alan Moore, Chris Claremont, Neil Gaiman, and Grant Morrison. Always Grant Morrison.

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:
Fans of intergalactic space romps filled with hilarity rejoice! Man from Space, Marc Jackson’s tale of the adventures of an outer-space a--hole and his goldfish, Michael, is now available online as a small press comic! Completely revamped for the new release (but in the good way, not the “George Lucas” way), Man from Space has been described as “a cross between Harold and Kumar go to White Castle and Samurai Jack with a sci-fi twist” by FBC president Bryant Dillon and is sure to be enjoyed by any fanboy or fangirl with a sense of humor and a jet pack in their closet.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2013, FBC's Shannon Cabeen talks with NewStarship.com founder and CEO Huston Huddleston about his work to restore the bridge of the Enterprise, the impressive number of Star Trek celebrities involved, and more.
Bluwater Productions is a comic book publisher that does not shy away from controversy, as is evidenced by their recent decision to move forward with the creation of their latest Female Force biography of TV personality Paula Deen. As detailed in Bluewater's official press release below, the publisher and the comic book's writer, Michael Troy, do not condone Deen's racial remarks; however, they hope to take the difficult path of forgiveness in their latest title.
Greetings, Fanboy Comics Readers!
The choice to cast Johnny Depp as Tonto in the new Lone Ranger flick has been controversial since its announcement, with many feeling that Depp's portrayal of the Native American character was borderline racist. Attacking the issue with wit and humor, Los Angeles-based sketch comedy group New Feelings Time has just released their latest parody video, and it's sure to deliver some laughs. Check it out below, Kemosabe.
Hello there. Most of you know me in some capacity. I’ve been in this business for 20+ years and certainly been involved in a lot of crazy things in that time. Last year I launched a book called Think Tank with my friend and artist Rahsan Ekedal. We’re both very passionate about the book. WE LOVE DOING IT! And, I hope that enthusiasm for what we’re doing carries through to the final read.
I’ve been very straight up with everyone about this book; we’ll keep doing it if it finds a large enough audience to sustain it. We’ve committed through issue #20 at this point, which is 16 more than I thought we’d get to, but we’d both like to do the book for a long, long time.
Why am I writing this now? Because this week the second trade paperback of Think Tank is in stores along with the 2nd printing of the first one. I’m not too proud to ask for your help.
