August 28

 

The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a very happy Read Comics in Public* Day!  (*If you live on the East Coast, it is permissible to read comics inside today.)

 

This special day is as simple as it sounds... go and read comics in public!  Read Comics in Public Day was created by Brian Heater and Sarah Morean of The Daily Cross Hatch in 2010 in an attempt to encourage fans to show their geek pride for all to see.  Over the years, comics and graphic novels have grown in popularity and social acceptance, but we as geeks should always to do our part to encourage that growth.

 

Nervous to read comics in public by yourself?  Not to worry!  There are groups meeting all over the world to sit quietly and read together.  To find out if there is a group meeting near you, check out The Daily Cross Hatch and ReadComicsInPublic.com.

 

The FBC Crew will be reading comics in public today at North Hollywood Park.  We hope that you will join us in celebrating this special day!

 

Sincerely,
Barbra Dillon
Managing Editor, Co-Founder, & Director of Jedi Recruitment

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

 

The Staff of Fanboy Comics was sad to hear that Wizard World's Los Angeles Comic-Con, originally scheduled for September 24-25 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, was postponed and/or cancelled just a few weeks prior to its launch.

 

But, have no fear, faithful readers!  Our friends at Comikaze Expo have graciously offered to redeem all cancelled Wizard World tickets for Comikaze Expo tickets!  Read more about the ticket replacement process, below, in Comikaze's press release.

 

The End. A Web Series.

The Fanboy Comics Rating Agency (consisting of FBC President Bryant Dillon, two cans of Monster energy drink, and Bryant’s imaginary friend, Floyd the womp rat) announced Friday that it has downgraded the geek credit rating of many top ranked figures in Geekdom.

"The downgrade reflects our opinion that these once worthy and geeky figures now, in current times, fall short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize their own geek cred dynamics in the Geekdom community," the agency said about the move. The downgrade was announced after the FBC Rating Agency completed some truly bad-@$$ rounds of Halo: Reach (online multiplayer, of course).

Below is a list of the affected geek parties and an explanation from the Fanboy Comics Rating Agency regarding why each party received the greek cred downgrade.

When I reviewed The Troll Hunter, I mistakenly identified it as the only foreign film I saw at Sundance 2011. I’m not sure how the very first film I saw that week slipped my mind, especially one so crude and darkly humorous, but it’s about time I reviewed it. Irish black comedy The Guard is an immersive character study with an underlying thriller plot line. Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges, The Harry Potter Series) stars as unorthodox Sergeant Gerry Boyle. His offensive, lazy, and naïve façade make him an unlikely protagonist, but Gleeson’s performance lends this film its best attributes. The supporting cast assists him with a mixture of quirky and straight-man performances, making The Guard a colorful film despite an average plot.

The FBC Crew got the scoop on the new Star Wars: The Blueprints from Lucasfilm and Epic Ink!  Providing an extensive look at the designs behind the saga, Star Wars: The Blueprints is an extra-large format, hardbound masterpiece, essential for any Star Wars fan!

Crom smiled on the Fanboy Comics Crew last week when we were able to attend the red carpet Hollywood premiere of Conan the Barbarian, starring Jason Momoa, Stephen Lang, and Rose McGowan! We were so psyched about the return of the Cimmerian that we prepared for the premiere by honoring Crom (and Mr. Schwarzenegger) with a repeat viewing of the classic '80s original.  

 

Fanboy Comics is excited to bring you the first of many reviews from its newest Contributor, Jarret Mock!

 

Here’s a movie you may have missed: Neil Marshall’s largely ignored 2010 effort, Centurion. Set during the Roman occupation of England, it received barely any attention at all in the United States upon its release. Marshall has written and directed cult action-horror movies like Dog Soldiers and Doomsday in the past, always bringing along a gory style that’s refreshing in the presence of PG-13 summer blockbusters. American viewers have probably heard of The Descent, the one Marshall horror flick I really didn’t enjoy. But, when the geeky director who I remember for gleefully mashing up werewolves with foul-mouthed SAS troops or Mad Max with Braveheart decides to try out a straight-laced, historical epic, I have to wonder what he’s thinking.
