With the release of the newest edition of Dungeons & Dragons and the success of Paizo’s Pathfinder roleplaying games, RPGs are becoming quite popular again; however, these games can be very difficult to teach to young children, as they involve quite a bit of math and have whole bookstore sections dedicated to their vast amount of rules. Longtime RPG player Jordan Callarman seeks to change all that with the launch of his new Kickstarter project, Goobles & Goblins, an RPG designed for children and adults to play together. Fanboy Comics Senior Contributor Jason Enright sat down with Callarman to discuss his RPG and the decision to fund his project through Kickstarter.

Seventeen-year-old Liz Wynter wants to be unique, just like any teenager, but the technology in her head makes it clear that everything Liz does, thinks, dreams, or is has come before and will come again.  Liz can’t even claim her DNA, since, in her futuristic galaxy, numerous women sharing her genetic code have lived, died, and are yet to be born. Her only escape is into the virtual world apps on her brain computer, but when her friend, Shane, introduces Liz to an app that will steal from other people’s mind computers, they accidentally access a program linked to a group who wants to overturn the Galactic Government and she becomes marked.  Now, she’s struggling to find a way to stay one step ahead of the government agent who wants her dead, because how are you unpredictable when everything you and anyone else with your DNA has thought, done, or said is analyzed and on record?

“How often do you fly, Kari?”
“I don’t.  Outside of these random meetings, I lead a very ordinary life. I don’t need to fly.”
“It’s not about needing to fly.  It’s about being free, escaping this madness we live in.
“Once you go up, you just have to come back down and face it . . . Your best bet is to just ignore it.  That’s how I escape.”

Baltimore, MD – Present Day.  Gerald Petworth and Kari James have been given an assignment:  Infiltrate a Department of Homeland Security armored convoy to retrieve a young man being transported under guard to Quantico.  But, the young man apparently isn’t what he seems, and neither are Gerald and Kari, as their powers make them more formidable than the DHS Soldiers guarding the convoy. 

One fact that readers of Fanboy Comics may not know is that I am a Pittsburgh gal, born and raised.  Primanti Bros. sandwiches, Mr. Rogers, the Steelers, Andy Warhol . . . the works (n'at).  While it has been years since I departed the city of the three rivers, Pittsburgh will always hold a special place in my heart.  This special fondness for the 'burgh is what intrigued me about CHUTZ-POW! Superheroes of the Holocaust, a new comic book anthology that tells the stories of five Pittsburgh-area Holocaust survivors.  Produced as a joint effort between The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh and The Pittsburgh ToonSeum (one of only three museums in the US to be devoted exclusively to the cartoon arts), CHUTZ-POW! aims to educate readers about the events of the Holocaust and to promote social justice, peace, and compassion. 

As the leaves begin to change and a strange chill fills the air, there is no doubt that Halloween will soon be here!  For fans of the frightfully fun holiday and those who love all things horror, the Horror Writers Association is getting into the spirit of the season with their upcoming event, An Afternoon of Horror II at the Pasadena Central Library. 

Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat was the first published novel of Andrez Bergen, author of such works as Who Is Killing the Great Capes of Heropa and the Bullet Gal comic series. The post-apocalyptic, dystopian, sci-fi noir world in which the story takes place has been a continual presence in much of his work since then, with characters, themes, settings, and plot points providing influence throughout his oeuvre. Now, Bergen has taken that first book and adapted it into graphic novel form.

In December 2012 creator Lonnie Mann took a 3 ½ day trip to Iceland, but instead of just sharing photos and souvenirs with his friends back home, he decided to create a comic documenting his adventures. While it’s not going to entertain someone who needs action and high tension in their plot, this modern take on the travelogue both charms and educates readers about Iceland.
