So… this appears to be BOOM!’s second iteration of the Angel title, after canceling the previous run in late 2020. With the Buffy the Vampire Slayer books going hard on the multiverse, it makes sense that this particular iteration is set in an alternate universe. As should be expected, some of the basics are still intact while a few characters have been remixed a bit. Angel is still a vampire, presumably with a soul. On top of running his private investigator gig, he’s also a popular actor on a TV show with Cordelia. A bunch of familiar faces turn up, too, so this almost feels like an episode of the show, but through a funhouse mirror.

Throughout 2020 and 2021, Fanbase Press' weekly Creator Forums provided comics industry professionals with an opportunity to discuss ways to cope with the changing comics landscape in light of the Coronavirus. As a new year begins and the impact of COVID-19 continues, it is not lost on us that comic book conventions - and the opportunity to connect with industry colleagues personally and professionally - will not take place in the same manner for the foreseeable future. To provide further opportunities to connect with industry creators, publishers, media, retailers, and educators during our collective quarantine, Fanbase Press will be hosting its next Comics & Coffee virtual meetup on Saturday, January 22, 2022, at 10 a.m./PT (1 p.m./EST). Fanbase Press' Comics & Coffee is a FREE hour-long Zoom session taking place every Saturday, welcoming new and experienced comics pros to a virtual meetup that aims to fill the convention-less void with networking opportunities, sharing creative successes and failures, and troubleshooting ways to navigate the industry in the weeks and months to come.

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)!

This Week: Titans's "Nightwing"

Total Request Live 5 continues with Justin's first episode of Titans -- "Nightwing."

It seems we've about reached the halfway point in what was originally envisioned for this series by its creator, and with that milestone, we've also reached the end of the current “Possibilty” arc. For a series as wild as this one, this arc was the wildest of them all. It brought American culture - and the ideal of the American Dream - to the forefront, the idea of creating great works that will leave their mark throughout all of history and creating a lasting legacy. This issue was packed with set-ups and payoffs, allowing for a satisfying ending to the arc and several major question marks that will leave us wondering until the series' return in a few months.

With her Slayer powers on the fritz for no apparent reason in a dystopian future in which the sun no longer kills vampires, all Buffy Summers needs is a new charge to keep alive. Which is, of course, why she now has a young Potential crashing with her. Oh, never mind that it’s Willow and Tara’s daughter.
