Fear Agent is back, with a desperate grab at a sustainable future for the remaining people of Earth. After an inordinate amount of alien invasions have left their home planet an almost completely inhabitable rock of death and depressing memories, the survivors are running out of options for survival. This is the impetus that kicks off this book, thrusting Heath, Mara, Charlotte, and the majority of the Fear Agents into a series of splintered adventures, failures, and unexpected tragedies. It starts in an almost episodic, uniquely standalone kind of way, though still connected to the larger, ongoing story, and this lulls you into a false sense of safety until, on the turn of a dime, everything goes wrong and calamity stacks upon calamity, disaster breeds death. By the end, you’re begging for something, anything, good to happen. But, that just ain’t how things play out, not in Fear Agent, and especially not in a volume titled Hatchet Job. In this, the fourth volume, collecting issues seventeen through twenty-one, Heath once again watches his world crumble all around him, though this time he’s not solely to blame, or at least not solely blamed by others. It is arguable though that Heath not being the cause of the trouble makes it harder for him to cope with it, though the preeminent cause still hits close to home and takes its emotional toll on the emotionally ravaged hero.
“I wouldn’t be in to big a rush to see [the World], Morris. There’s a reason why we have kept this a secret, and I’m trusting you to do the same.”
“But Victor, the places we can go. The creatures we can see . . . ”
“Dreams are dreams and never what you wish them to be.”
The Victorian age was a goldmine for fantasy and science-fiction, with authors such as HG Wells, Jules Verne, Rudyard Kipling, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Lewis Carroll (just to name a few) creating characters and worlds that still impact us to this day. Now, Dave Elliott is taking these creations well in hand and putting his own unique take on them, by binding them into one common world.
Attack on Titan is a very interesting, new anime series from creator Hajime Isayama and Funimation Studios about a group of young military cadets in a battle for survival against gigantic, ravenous humanoids called Titans. The series has taken the world by storm with its intense action and emotional storyline, but is it really all it’s cracked up to be?
Fanboys Comics Contributors Jodi Scaife and Senior Contributors Jason Enright and Kristine Chester don their three-dimensional maneuvering gear and dive into the series with this in-depth, 5-part review of Attack on Titan: Season One.
When Fanboy Comics is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the FBC staff hopes to offer our readers a myriad of opportunities to give back to the community. We love reading comics, watching movies, and playing video games, but we are never happier than when we are able to help others in need. With Geeks Care: How You Can Help, FBC will provide you a variety of causes that would greatly appreciate your time.
This week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help will focus on the great folks at Whedonopolis and Fandom Charities, non-profit organizations established for the purpose of raising funds and awareness for charitable organizations through fandom events, conventions, and other geek-related activities. On August 9, 2014, these two great organizations will be hosting An Evening at Caritas: A Night of Karaoke to honor actor Andy Hallett. Fans in the know will remember Hallett as the actor behind Lorne, the lovable and gentle Deathwok Clan demon on the TV show Angel who ran the karaoke bar Caritas, where all patrons - good and evil - were welcome. The proceeds from this event will benefit Kids Need To Read, and there will also be a canned food drive to benefit SOVA Community Food and Resource Program. The Fanboy Comics staff hopes that you will join us in celebrating the memory of Hallett while having a great time and lending your help to two incredible charitable organizations.

The All-New Marvel provides an overview of the new series coming from Marvel Comics’ All-New Marvel NOW! banner and the impact they have on the classic and new characters we love (and those we love to hate). With each installment of The All-New Marvel, we see what our favorite characters are up to and where they are headed in the future.
Reeling from the aftermath of what they’ve been through in the Murder World, these young superheroes are seen as pariahs and untouchable beings in their communities. Being seen as people who did everything they could to survive—some of which was worse than what villains such as the Green Goblin or Malekith—has turned their lives inside-out and upside-down. Tired of having to try to prove themselves to the world, they contemplate a way to earn back their good name by becoming that which the world thinks they already are: evil. To achieve this, they must become Avengers Undercover.
