What does the future hold for the human race? How does our society evolve in the decades ahead? If you are looking for a satirical take on our lives as told in a sci-fi setting, Universe! from Image Comics may just be for you.

Quick recap: Rose is now part of a story, having stepped in as Gawain. A lead from a dying previous associate of Mary/Elaine/Nimue’s sent Bridgette and Duncan back to the old family home. Meanwhile, Rose comes face to face with the woman at large… and a Glock.

The following is an interview with Joe Aubrey and Eric Peterson regarding the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for Space Bastards: Volume 2, published by Humanoids.

Throughout 2020, Fanbase Press' weekly Creator Forums provided comics industry professionals with an opportunity to discuss ways to cope with the changing comics landscape in light of the Coronavirus. As a new year begins and the impact of COVID-19 continues, it is not lost on us that comic book conventions - and the opportunity to connect with industry colleagues personally and professionally - will not take place for the foreseeable future. To provide further opportunities to connect with industry creators, publishers, media, retailers, and educators during our collective quarantine, Fanbase Press will be hosting its next Comics & Coffee virtual meetup on Saturday, January 23, 2021, at 10 a.m./PT (1 p.m./EST). Fanbase Press' Comics & Coffee is a FREE hour-long Zoom session taking place every Saturday, welcoming new and experienced comics pros to a virtual meetup that aims to fill the convention-less void with networking opportunities, sharing creative successes and failures, and troubleshooting ways to navigate the industry in the weeks and months to come.

My first two reviews of Crossover were about the importance of this series, especially in this day and age. It is about how we treat people that are different than us, and it’s a spin on the social and allegorical leanings of the X-Men.

The first issue of Home Sick Pilots gave us an interesting setup for a haunted house story. A punk band consisting of three high schoolers ends up in a house, looking for a badass place to have a concert that will completely destroy the popularity of a rival punk band. The rumors of it being a haunted house turn out to be true, and as both bands face off, it comes to life and terrible things happen. But, wait! There’s more.

I feel like I just read another Joker origin story. In Haha #1, we meet Bart, an extremely positive man living a not-so-positive life as a clown. (Yes, this does sound just like the plot to  he DC movie, Joker.) Bart has a wife (who doesn't share his glass-half-full perspective), two kids, and a small dog. The comic does have a few different twists and turns (No spoilers!), plus gorgeous and evocative art by Vanesa Del Rey (Redlands).

“What?  You want me to go live with Zed?!”
“I wish you wouldn’t call him that.  He’s still your dad.”
“But…we barely even see him!”
“He visits for the holidays!”
“Yeah, but weird random holidays that no one here has ever heard of!”
“That’s not true! Panathena is a very big deal in Greece.”
“Really, Mom?!  Panthena?  I don’t think that’s big deal anywhere…”
