This is it.  The conclusion of Brian Wood’s Conan run, and the end of Robert E. Howard’s Queen of the Black Coast story.  Conan and the pirate queen Bêlit, the titular Queen of the Black Coast, are an unstoppable force, their desire for each other as intense as it is ferocious, and nothing on land or sea, Heaven or Hell, can keep them apart.  While equals, they both retain their individuality as they learn new things about themselves through the other. They are a violent, powerful couple, laying waste to those that defy them or stand in their way.  From their very first encounter, their love has been fraught with danger, with deceit, with death, and with each escape or conquest, there is a sense that this cannot last forever.  Collecting Conan issues nineteen through twenty-five, The Song of Bêlit tackles what happens when that time runs out and what is left in the wake of such a passionate, all-consuming relationship.

What is this, villains week?! This is the second comic book I've read all week that showcased only villains. I'm certainly not complaining, but as a new reader to the comic book realm, I expected more heroes to be slicing and dicing. Yet, it's nice to see that writers and artists also give more depth to even their evilest of characters . . . which is why I'm glad I read up on Issue #4 in the Star Wars: Darth Maul - Son of Dathomir series.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2014, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon sat down with the creative team of Pussycats, an upcoming comic book mini-series being published by E-Comix, for an exclusive and in-depth interview regarding the action/thriller.  Dillon chatted with writer Vince Brusio (E-Comix President, Autopsy: Feast for a Funeral), legendary adult film star Karen Summer, and internationally renowned cosplayer Tanya Tate to discuss the concept for the mini-series, how the creative team was formed, their excitement of launching the premiere ashcan at SDCC, and how readers can learn more information about Pussycats.

The following audio interview was conducted on Thursday, July 24th, 2014.

Independent comic book creators are hard-working folks.  It takes a great deal of energy, determination, and fortitude to create a comic book on your own, which is why - here at Fanboy Comics - we love highlighting the work of these talented individuals!  In this installment of "The Kickstarter Report," I want to call attention to the Kickstarter campaign for Boston Metaphysical Society #5, the fifth issue in a six-issue sci-fi, action/adventure, Steampunk mini-series. Series creator Madeleine Holly-Rosing is hoping to raise $7,500 to cover the art production and printing costs of Issue #5, and she needs your help to make her dream a reality. 

In an exclusive Fanboy Comics interview originally recorded for Slamdance 2014, brothers Nick and Joe Manganiello (True Blood) join Peter Baxter, President of Slamdance Film Festival, for an in depth Q&A about their documentary, La Bare.  In addition, you won't want to miss the signed La Bare movie poster giveaway that will only last until Monday, August 18th!

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).

There are several words to describe Logan and his position within the mutant community, but being a school teacher is probably the weirdest one.  After a schism that split the ideological camps of the X-Men, he returned to Westchester, New York, to start up a school in the image of his mentor and dedicated to the memory of his colleague, Jean Grey; however, regardless of their differences, the two sides still have a fundamental belief in protecting the world and educating the next generation, and Logan keeps leading his group as Wolverine & The X-Men.

I'm not gonna lie. I went to see the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie with low expectations.  In doing so, the movie didn't turn out to be half bad.  And, as a huge TMNT fan growing up, that's saying something.  Allow me to give you my thoughts about what worked and what didn't work, and then feel free to argue with me in the comments below.

I pick up a Young Adult novel, I want to find some very specific things.  A spunky, take-no-prisoners heroine.  A troublesome love interest.  Someone (or something) evil to fight against. Throw in some element of the supernatural, apocalyptic, dystopian, fantastic, the other-worldly, and I'm a happy reader.  

In Storm Siren, author Mary Weber brings us a fantasy realm filled with faeries, magic, and monsters, and layers in a gritty social environment filled with slavery, poverty, and political intrigue.  Weber echoes themes from The Hunger Games and The X-Men in a unique, imaginative world for the reader to explore.

The title of a comic book typically gives away what the reader should expect. The Horror Show (Broken Icon Comics) delivers on the promise of the title in that there is horror. Lots and lots of horror.
