As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.
In this Fanbase Feature, The Fanbase Weekly co-host Bryant Dillon is joined by special guests Phillip Kelly (The POPSKL Podcast Group) and Justin Peniston (writer – Hunter Black, Sonic Prime, The POPSKL Podcast Group) to participate in a thorough discussion regarding the Predator prequel, Prey (2022), in light of the film’s recent release, with topics including the theme of “othering” present in the story, the riveting performances by Amber Midthunder and Dakota Beavers, the implications of that “special” item, the panelists’ Predator face preferences (and other general Predator snobbery), and more. (Beware: SPOILERS for Prey abound in this panel discussion!)
Cast members: Phillip Kelly (The POPSKL Podcast Group), Justin Peniston (writer – Hunter Black, Sonic Prime, The POPSKL Podcast Group), and Bryant Dillon (Fanbase Press President, writer – Something Animal, Identity Thief)
This month’s sponsor: First Comics has surpassed 40 years of publishing and built its reputation on cutting-edge titles, an eye for talent, a commitment to retailer support and creators’ rights, and creative risk-taking in striving to put out books that knocked your socks off. Out of its diverse catalog of titles, listeners will want to check out these standout series: 1) The supernatural noir series, Love Town, by The Yuan Twins, a hard-boiled world where the figurative magic of the movie studios competes with the literal magic of the streets. 2) The caustically satirical black sci-fi series, Space Negro, by Jared Sams. Imagine if you will Flash Gordon as written by Richard Pryor and narrated by Sam Kinison. Space Negro follows the adventures of Supernova Watkins, the last black man in the universe. And, 3) the action fantasy series, Night Stalker, by Orlando Harding. When the baddest of the bad escape from Hell, Hell sends someone even worse to bring them back – the Night Stalker! Listeners can find these titles and many more at www.1firstcomics.com and on social media (@1Firstcomics).
