At WonderCon 2019, Fanbase Press' Michele Brittany talks with Brendan Taylor of Mavericks VFX (The Handmaids Tale, What We Do in the Shadows) about his work on various television series, his creative process, being a participant on the "It’s Alive!: Designing Sci-Fi, Horror, and Mystery TV and Video Games" panel, and more.
Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle has been on my radar for a while now. The Star Wars extended universe, both new and old canon, contains some of the greatest moments in the history of the franchise. (I'm looking at you, Star Wars Jedi Council: Acts of War.) I held off on getting into this miniseries, because I wanted to read the story as a finished product, and, luckily, that product has arrived in the form of this box set.
As season 2 of American Gods continues, the show has diverged more and more from the book. The creators have introduced more characters and made a point to focus on some of the darker atrocities in American culture. I am not quite sure where they are going with the story this season. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but I do hope that we'll start to see how some of these tangential threads will be woven together.
The following is an interview with comic book creator Ted Shambaris on the release of his comic book series, Poverty Pack, through Afro 'Stache Studios.

Jenner Faulds posed as a man to fight in the War of the Harshlands. After the war ended, she became a "Fairman" private investigator. As the only "Fairlady" in The Feld, she gets kicked the work that no one else wants. But, sometimes, the least desirable cases are the most crucial. In their new genre-blending collaboration, writer Brian Schirmer and artist Claudia Balboni drop a private eye procedural into a colorful, but perilous, fantasy world.
Looking for something directed more for the adults in the room? Something erotic, steamy, and a bit twisted? Then, Brian Azzarello and Maria Llovet bring to you Faithless. Faith is a 20-something who hangs out at coffee shops and studies occult stuff, spells, witchcraft – the usual. She also can’t get off when pleasuring herself. So, what is the issue? At this point, it’s hard to say, because while this first issue is about Faith, it’s more about Faith meeting Poppy.
I’m a few issues behind on my reviews for The Empty Man, and it’s been a pretty intense chase scene these last few issues as the world has fallen into chaos.
The first issue of Ronin Island steamrolled forward, introducing several major story elements in a jam-packed issue. Story beats came so furiously that it was difficult at times to keep your footing.
I’ve been waiting expectantly for this new story arc for months, and I don’t know if I was prepared enough going into it. The first issue of She Could Fly: The Lost Pilot left me rattled in the best possible way.
Dark Horse Comics is well known for its interesting catalog of titles. While their catalog often contains licensed comics, they also take chances on epic, new creator-owned series, including She Could Fly, a series by Christopher Cantwell, co-creator of the hit show, Halt and Catch Fire.
