Katelyn (Kit Quinn) is a woman who hit her head and now thinks she's the superhero Trinity Infinity. Her friends - Lilly (Lola Binkerd), Paul (David Dickerson), and Silvia (Tallest Silver) - have been trying to help her cope with life by using elaborate comic book scenarios while Paul's ex-girlfriend, Morgan (Megan Alyse), has been trying to snap Katelyn back into reality. Their back-and-forth struggle finally comes to a head in the final episode of Sweethearts of the Galaxy.

The following is an interview with Chang Kim, founder and CEO of Tapastic.com, a website that connects independent comic book creators directly with their readers. In this interview, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon chats with Kim about Tapastic's recent announcement of its partnership with South Korean webcomic provider Daum Communications to bring the art of visual storytelling to audiences around the world.

This interview was conducted on February 10, 2014.

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a Happy International Darwin Day! On this special day, just over 200 years ago, evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin was born, and we want to do our part to celebrate his life and his work. (PS: Abraham Lincoln was born on the same day . . . but he will have his own holiday next week. Let's give Darwin his own moment in the spotlight, shall we?)

Dear Megan Ellison,

I’m a big fan of the old school, classic version of TV’s Law and Order.  The Special Victims Unit version is way too lurid for me (There are only so many child rapes a person can stomach.) but watching the old Law and Order is the TV equivalent of eating potato chips, particularly the Jerry Orbach years.  I especially love any episode where the perp was some obnoxious, entitled rich kid from the Upper West Side whose sniveling parents were using their great wealth to help their kid avoid jail.  Of course, Sam Waterston was having none of that.  It was a revenge fantasy for the Ninety-Nine Percenters long before Occupy Wall Street.

To my Valentine, Discworld:

D is for the way you Draw me so fully into your rich and vibrant narrative. I is for the Idiosyncratic sense of . . .

Just kidding.

Really, don’t worry. I’ve stopped.

Dear Mr. Whedon,

I am not even sure where to begin. Um . . . Well . . . It’s like . . . Well, I feel . . . You see . . . Before you . . . There once was . . . A long time ago . . . Back in the day . . . It goes like this . . . I . . . Uh . . . Guh . . . Eh . . . A . . .

Hi.

It is the title and cover that initially have the power of persuasion over the customer, literally enticing them to stop them in their tracks and choose whether or not to even pick up and consider a comic. Well, the cover for Tales of the Brothers Three: The Moose Kisser packs one heck of a sale. Right smack on the front, you have a small boy holding on to a moose’s head for dear life, desperately trying to give it the kiss of life, while two other boys (presumably the brothers) pull at his legs by way of his pants. We are left staring at the boy’s bright white undies, covered in red hearts, and the red lipstick stain he has left on the moose's head, which eerily has its tongue hanging out. This is not just a cover; it’s a story/sketch all in and of itself, reminiscent of Calvin and Hobbs meets Dennis the Menace and The Little Rascals. If I were the marketing person, I would be sneaking copies into locals CVSs this week and stashing them with every bag of Hershey Kisses I could find!

The Fuse #1, from art style to writing, is a pulpy mix of a crime noir and near-future sci-fi. It feels like Judge Dredd in space.

From Superman to Joss Whedon, the Fanboy Comics staffers are really just big softies under that geeky exterior. We hope that you will enjoy this glimpse into the minds (and hearts) of Fanboy Comics!
