As the impact of the Coronavirus continues to reverberate throughout the comic book industry and our society as a whole, we at Fanbase Press would like to provide an opportunity for all comics industry professionals to join together in solidarity. On Saturday, August 15, at 10 a.m./PST, Fanbase Press will host its weekly Creator Forum: Group Discussion, an hour-long, informal discussion about the positive ways to cope with the changing comics landscape. Taking place via the Zoom platform (video and audio), the Creator Forum will be free to join and limited to the first 100 attendees to RSVP. The previous Group Discussions have been a great success, with creators, publishers, media professionals, and educators from across the comics medium discussing new and positive ideas. We hope that this discussion will provide an opportunity to re-connect with colleagues, to find new resources and information, and to build hope in collaborating with other comics creators.

Well, this is it. One final issue of the smash success that is Sex Criminals... Other than the issue after this and the special issue that comes in between. But other than that, this is the last one. While the series has, and will continue to be, a ridiculously fun adventure about people who have sex and stop time, the series has managed to become one of the most emotionally resonant books in recent years, thanks to the heart and bravery that the series' creators have poured into it. This series is somehow both sophomoric and sophisticated, and it shows in this last issue as we see Suzy finally come to terms with everything that has happened to her over the last 29 issues, as well as wrap up everything that has been put in her and Jon's path.
It's a new arc and a new zone for the conglomerate of explorers that have made their way into the isolated lands of the United States of America. From inside the wall, our team has faced many dangers, seen new creatures, and a land unlike any other. After the United States went dark, cutting itself off from the rest of the world, the country has become unrecognizable to those who weren't inside when the isolation began. During their trek through the first portion of “The Spiral,” the expedition group faced down the Mad Max-like wastes of the Destiny Man and his bloodthirsty crew and managed to barely escape with their lives. Now, the team finds themselves in the second zone of the new United States, Zone Unity. While we've barely scratched the surface of what Unity has to offer our protagonists, it looks much different from the barren lands of Destiny, and potentially even more treacherous.
