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.
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of G.I. Joe, Geeks Care: How You Can Help has turned its attention to an organization that not only loves all things Joe but is also doing its part to help our Real American Heroes. Several members of The Finest: A G.I. Joe Costume Club, the world's premier G.I. Joe/Cobra costuming group in the world (portraying the uniforms of the basic G.I. Joe and Cobra infantry troopers, the more specialized operatives of the Cobra Viper corps, and more), have banded together to create a Joe-themed 2015 calendar, the proceeds of which will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. The calendar will portray all of your favorite female characters (plus a few twists on classic characters) and has aptly been named the Girls of The Finest 2015 calendar. While the profits will be donated to charity, the members of The Finest need your help to make this terrific project a reality.
There are many different flavors of hit men. Some are masters of political assassinations, some try to find inventive new ways to kill people, some yodel, but they all have their own distinctive style, their mark. Mike Fallon's is a gift for setting up accidents. What looks like a suicide or a terrible car accident might, in fact, be a murder caused by an accident man.
After the recent release of the digital series Caper, Geek & Sundry has partnered with Bryan Singer's Bad Hat Harry to present the digital-only series Spooked, the first episode of which will be released on Wednesday, April 16th, 2014, (10 a.m./PST / 1 p.m./EST) on the free, ad-supported Hulu, Hulu Plus subscription service, and YouTube.
By necessity, Lazarus spends a lot of time talking about family. It’s usually “the Family” or something, or loyalty thereto, whether born of blood ties or social status. What Forever Carlyle endured for her Family in order to become its glorified bodyguard makes it all the more tense to watch her serve. She’s a character who, as an adult, barely seems human, but her story makes it feel like that’s a tragedy, not a creative mistake.
“We call it the House. The way it works is that you die . . . and where you wake up is a black pit of a room. The first room. Your Room.
You can create that room in any fashion you want just by imagining the components. Unless, of course, the process gets interrupted . . .
In which case, well, you have the start of Sam’s tale . . .
A tale that begins with a dark room filled with the sound of wailing souls.”
Sam Coleman is dead. This much he knows. What he doesn’t know is why he woke up in a dark room in a house with seemingly limitless space and bricked-in doors . . . and demons trying to kill him.
Do not be deceived by the title of this hardcover from Titan Books. Snowpiercer Volume 2: The Explorers is actually Snowpiercer 2: The Explorers AND Snowpiercer 3: The Crossing collected in a single edition. It is the sequel to the original graphic novel (You may have seen my review.), and, like the first, it is drawn by the talented Jean-Marc Rochette; however, these new adventures, chronicling the plight of the last remnants of humanity on an unending journey aboard the ice-breaking behemoth Snowpiercer perpetually circling the frozen globe, are penned by a different writer, Benjamin Legrand. Legrand continued the series when the original writer, Jaques Lob, passed away in 1990.
Comic book publisher BOOM! Studios will soon be releasing Issue #18 of Bravest Warriors on Wednesday, March 26th, written by Jason Johnson and Breehn Burns and illustrated by Mike Holmes.

Clifford Meth is a writer, editor, and champion of the rights of comic book creators. As if promoting his new book Comic Book Babylon (a dishy, behind-the-scenes look at the ins and outs of the comic book industry) wasn't enough to keep Cliff busy, he is also trying to resurrect a project created by late, great comic legend Dave Cockrum.
Cliff was kind enough to answer a few questions about Comic Book Babylon and Dave Cockrum's Futurians.
Back before Pandora or Spotify told you who you would enjoy listening to based off of your current listening selection, well, there was this guy. This guy hung around record shops, clubs, and concert venues and waxed on and on about this band and that, coaxing out tidbits of your personal music preference, then suggested bands or tracks to check out on the merit of his knowledge of music, and not some "what people who listen to X also like Y" formula created to sell shampoo and acne cleaner to music (or what sometimes passes for music) listeners. I miss those guys. Occasionally, you still run into folks who can pass along a good suggestion or two, but it's a hard line to follow when it's so easy to submit to the ease that is musical complacency.
At its core, Kill Me is a really simple story. It’s about a man who ruins his life, then has a chance to go back in time and fix things. But, surrounding that basic concept are a whole lot of other events that make the story seem much more complicated than it is.
