Prospera seems like a perfect world with its comfortable lifestyles, white-collar jobs, and lack of death, at least in the most common sense.  Once the monitor implanted in each citizen’s arm falls to a certain level, they are gently shepherded to the Nursery by a ferryman to be reset into a childlike state and eventually returned to Prospera as a ward of adult members of the community; however, the Support Staff that take care of the menial jobs on Prospera live ordinary human lives with aging, illness, and suffering, while resentful towards the idyllic Prosperan community is growing rapidly.  Whispers of a rebel group known as the Arrivalists spread, and an unsuspecting ferryman called Proctor Bennett will be sucked into the heart of the conspiracy when his father’s retirement doesn’t go as planned.

Since March of 2020, Fanbase Press' weekly Comics & Coffee Zoom sessions have provided comics industry professionals with an opportunity to discuss ways to cope with the changing comics landscape in light of the global pandemic. 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 weekly Comics & Coffee virtual meetup on Saturday, May 6, 2023, 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.
