I'm probably not the only nerd who’s been sitting at the edge of his seat, impatiently waiting for March 3rd.  If you’re a gamer like me, then you know I’m talking about the Nintendo system we’ve all been waiting for—the Nintendo Switch!  And, of course, the only game we’ll be playing on Day One will be the long-awaited Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  But whatever do we do with ourselves in the meantime?

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)!

“Slowly, desperately slowly it seemed to us as we watched, the remains of passage debris that encumbered the lower part of the doorway were removed, until at last we had the whole door clear before us. The decisive moment had arrived. With trembling hands, I made a tiny breach in the upper left-hand corner. Darkness and blank space, as far as an iron testing-rod could reach, showed that whatever lay beyond was empty, and not filled like the passage we had just cleared. Candle tests were applied as a precaution against possible foul gases, and then, widening the hole a little, I inserted the candle and peered in, Lord Carnarvon, Lady Evelyn and Callender standing anxiously beside me to hear the verdict. At first I could see nothing, the hot air escaping from the chamber causing the candle flame to flicker, but presently, as my eyes grew accustomed to the light, details of the room within emerged slowly from the mist, strange animals, statues, and gold – everywhere the glint of gold. For the moment – an eternity it must have seemed to the others standing by - I was struck dumb with amazement, and when Lord Carnarvon, unable to stand the suspense any longer, inquired anxiously, 'Can you see anything?' it was all I could do to get out the words, 'Yes, wonderful things.’”Howard Carter, Breaking the Second Sealed Door to King Tutankhamun’s Tomb, November 26, 1922

There’s a lot going on in Terminal Point. We’re thrust headfirst into the story right from the start and sometimes have to work to keep up. It’s worth the effort, though. It may be a little overwhelming at first, but as things unfold, we become ever more deeply immersed in the story and the world.

Dear Mr. Urban,

I’m probably like many of your fans: I first saw you as the anguished Eomer from The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002, Peter Jackson) and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003, Peter Jackson). With layers of hides on your back and long unkempt hair, your eyes conveyed the complexity of your character: sorrowful, yet brave. While you were not on the screen nearly enough, those scenes that you did have were pivotal. What an incredible opportunity to be part of a project that so defined fantasy for a new generation – it is no wonder you wanted to be part of it. I believe the experience may have set your course as a genre actor and I would say, also as a character actor, in part through the physical transformations you engage in for your craft.

Dear Dr. Horrible,

It’s been nearly nine years now since we were first introduced. Three 15-minute episodes over the course of one week, and since that week, my life has never been the same.

Awhile back, I was given the opportunity to review William Dickstein's Ch05En. In a unique world where science is able to figure out something spectacular, things aren't always as they seem. The world now has access to genetic mapping that can show a person if they have a latent gene, one that will allow for those with the gene to be someone of great importance, including those who have powers. Our lead for this second volume is the same as the first, the feral but soft-spoken Grizz. When we last left Grizz, he had abandoned his life as a teacher and superhero with the Global Heroes Society in favor of long-time lover and, at the time, adversary, Mische. This innovative ending sets up for the second volume of the series, which shows Grizz and Mische as the two are now on the run and attempting to move on with their lives.

A reverie through Dave McKean’s mind - that’s what Cages is: a perfectly undiluted vision plucked from both his conscious and subconscious mind. This massive volume from Dark Horse marks its 25th anniversary, and I have only just discovered it. To think on the same shelves as the superhero comics I read in my youth this living, breathing examination of that place where fiction, music, art, memory, dreams, love, loneliness, and hope all intersect was screaming at me to read it, and I only just heard its call. Cages isn’t so much a comic book as it is a sincere work of art, never finished, because it will change as we change.
