The following is an interview with Andre Mateus on the release of his new comic book series, Hotel Hell. In this interview, Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon chats with Mateus about the inspiration behind the series, his creative process in working with his team, what he hopes that readers will take away from the story, and more!

By now, you've probably encountered Disney’s Tsum Tsum at least once. If you haven't, they're basically a line of tiny stuffed animals that come from Japan based on Disney characters ranging from Mickey Mouse to Iron Man. Tsum Tsum have become something of a cultural phenomenon, leading to spin-off materials of all shapes and sizes, including today's comic: Disney’s Tsum Tsum Kingdom.



As a parent, many times, you’ll find yourself watching TV shows or movies your kids are interested in watching. You might watch shows ahead of time to make sure the content is appropriate for their ages, such as Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Sometimes, in those moments, you will realize you’ve become a fan of something that may already wildly popular, yet it’s brand new to you.

Elizabeth Dumn is a rude, 16-year-old, devil-stomping problem child, and it’s time we all start being a little more like her.

Today sees the release of Wonder Woman #58 from DC Comics. Not only will there be a new storyline, but the introduction of a new creative team, as well. Although I’ve never read G. Willow Wilson’s writing, I was excited that a woman would be taking the helm. And, with her accolades on Ms. Marvel, I am more than willing to give her a chance.

The Ash is back on the streets in a deadly Game of Thrones of horror necromancy. Bone Parish #4: The Fade starts off at the top of the roller coaster that issue #3 left us on. From there, it’s a straight shot down with lots of wild turns for the reader to brave.

Gideon Falls is a mystery - both a psychological mystery and a supernatural mystery. The characters are tied together by threads, their individual histories creating a tapestry that’s slowly weaving together to form a greater picture, a picture that revolves around an ominous structure called the Black Barn, which feels right out of one of David Lynch’s nightmares. Presumably, inside this structure is a creature made of red eyes, shadows, and a smile that’s all teeth – too many teeth. The creature - or demon - spirit is unnatural in a way that doesn’t feel like it can be drawn, that it just sort of lives somewhere between the reality on the page and the space you’re inhabiting. It’s that feeling you get when you’re lying in your bed at night and you think you feel something staring at you from your open closet or in the shadows across the room. It’s this unnerving sensation that something is just out of sight - that can’t quite be given words - that affects all of the characters of Gideon Falls.

I’ve often heard the television show, Firefly, described as the best 14 hours of your life, followed by a lifetime of disappointment. It’s true. One of the greatest sci-fi shows ever created ended much too soon. Despite the follow-up movie (Serenity), some other releases via various media, and a massive, post-cancellation cult following fifteen years later, there’s been no solid comeback for the show in any format. And, with each passing year, it seems we will never experience the adventures of Captain Mal and his band of mismatched ruffians on television again.

Like the Doctor Who episode, “Rosa,” a few weeks ago, “Demons of the Punjab” focuses almost exclusively on historical events and keeps the sci-fi elements to a minimum.  Set during the Partition of India, the Doctor takes her companions back to 1947, so Yaz can see her grandmother’s past.

God of War #1 is loud. God of War #1 is hard. God of War #1 is lush and full of ashy muscles frequently flexed and toned by its stoic protagonist, Kratos.
