As an award-winning comic book publisher and geek culture website, Fanbase Press produces new and distinctive works, as well as daily reviews, interviews, and podcasts, that span the pop culture spectrum and give voice to the themes, ideals, and people that make geekdom so exceptional.
Fanbase Press’ catalog of titles includes the 2018 Eisner Award-nominated Quince, the 2020 IPPY Award-winning Quince: The Definitive Bilingual Edition hardcover, the 2019 IPPY Award-winning A Geek’s Guide to Cross-Stitch: Journeys in Space, The Sequels, The Margins, The Gamma Gals, Something Animal, Identity Thief, The Arcs, and Penguins vs. Possums.
As with all of Fanbase Press’ work, its catalog of titles aims to be as inclusive as possible for its readers, offering a variety of genres — from superheroes and sci-fi to action/adventure and geeky cross-stitch — that will appeal to a myriad of age groups. In addition, each issue of the Eisner-nominated series, Quince, is available on Hoopla in both Spanish and English. Quince is about a teenager who discovers she has superpowers at her quinceañera, but only for the year that she is fifteen. Readers interested in a comprehensive collection of Quince in both Spanish and English will likely enjoy the recently released Quince: The Definitive Bilingual Edition hardcover (pictured below) which collects the full Spanish and English editions of the series, in addition to forewords by Gloria Calderón Kellett (Executive Producer/Showrunner/Director/Actor, One Day at a Time) and Peter Murrieta (Executive Producer/Showrunner/Writer, Mr. Iglesias), an academic essay by Frederick Luis Aldama (Distinguished University Professor and Eisner Award-winning author of Latinx Superheroes in Mainstream Comics), a study guide by Dr. Theresa Rojas (Professor, Modesto Junior College), an art gallery Javier Hernandez (El Muerto), Sabrina Cintron (The Witches’ Grimoire, La Borinqueña), Malena Bonilla (Twitter: @Malbondesigns, Instagram: @malbondesigns), and Jose Cabrera, and a heartfelt letter to the reader by creator Sebastian Kadlecik.
