LOS ANGELES, CA – November 29, 2011 – After witnessing his sister’s brutal murder, Jack struggles to cope with the disturbing, psychological aftermath. Tormented by images of the attack, Jack is forced to confront the harsh reality that either his sanity is quickly crumbling or that he is turning into something else… something dark… something animal…

Fanboy Comics is proud to announce the release of its premiere graphic novel, Something Animal, written by FBC founders Bryant Dillon and Sam Rhodes, and based on an original story by FBC Senior Contributor Ben Rhodes. The 80-page graphic novel will feature vivid, full-color art by Robert Burrows.

Something Animal is a response to the modern, romantic view of the vampire motif,” says FBC President Bryant Dillon. “We wanted to return to the very old idea of the vampire condition being a curse or a debilitating disease. The story relies heavily on its strong visuals and is perfect for the graphic novel medium.”

“Artist Robert Burrows has been an incredible collaborator, working tirelessly to translate our story into an emotional and compelling visual tapestry,” added FBC Creative Director Sam Rhodes.

Something Animal will be available for purchase on the Fanboy Comics website starting on Wednesday, December 7, 2011, and in select comic book stores in Los Angeles.

Founded in early 2010 by self-professed “geeks” Bryant and Barbra Dillon and Sam Rhodes, Fanboy Comics seeks to provide an outlet for up-and-coming artists and writers with a desire to create new works and media. By facilitating in-house collaborations and providing support and empowerment, FBC hopes to enable the production of professional and marketable creator-owned works.

Fanboy Comics’ second graphic novel, Identity Thief, will be available in 2012. For more information on Something Animal, please visit or
