“Between the Panels” is a bi-weekly interview series focusing on comic book creators of all experience levels, seeking to examine not just what each individual creates, but how they go about creating it.
Nocterra #6 picks up right where the previous issue left off. The Sundog Convoy of Val, Em, and Piper have reached what they thought was hope, but dark forces are always sulking in the background. Trust is betrayed, the monsters are in, and all seems lost in an epic and encouraging end to a fantastic first arc!
Quick recap: Having met up with River and an unusual young girl (Shakti), Emma races against time to save her mother and the rest of the Serenity crew. And perhaps screw around with Blue Sun some, too…
As we head into the last issue of the series, I have to say that it’s been a terrific ride, and I’ll miss this band of misfits who came together to save the universe. But as they say, all good things must come to an end.

Critical Role is back with their usual antics, as the prequel series continues for the story of Vox Machina, world-saving adventurers that will one day protect everyone and everything from an incredible, powerful force. For now, though, they're a bunch of bumbling idiots who haven't quite figured out this whole “adventuring” thing just yet.
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, August 21, 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.
Here at Fanbase Press, we strive to provide an outlet for up-and-coming creators to promote and showcase their incredible works. With thousands of creators utilizing crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo to make those works a reality, we will highlight these talented creators and their noteworthy campaigns through #CrowfundingFridays! We hope that you will join us in giving these projects a moment of your time (and possibly your support)!
The following is an interview with writer/director Joseph Sackett regarding the upcoming release of the film, Homebody.

As the global pandemic continues to hamper in-person events, the Graphic Medicine International Collective has chosen to move its annual convention (which explores the interaction between the medium of comics and the discourse of healthcare) to the virtual space with the announcement of the 2021 Graphic Medicine UnConvention. Taking place August 13, through Sunday, August 15, 2021, the theme of this year's convention is "What Are You Working On," providing an opportunity for attendees to learn about new projects and connect with their creators by way of one-minute videos highlighting in-progress projects, their inspiration, and what readers/viewers can anticipate from them. Fanbase Press is honored to be included in this year's Unconvention videos by way of its upcoming graphic medicine series, Ripple Effects, and we look forward to learning about all of the incredible creators and projects who will also be participating.
