Katelyn (Kit Quinn) has always loved cosplaying as her favorite heroes, no matter how much crap her friends give her, but when she hits her head at a convention and wakes up thinking she is Trinity Infinity, the character whose costume she's wearing, her friends are going to have to find some unique way to help her cope with the real world.

“This is the end of the line, old friend.  I don’t have much time left.  I’m sorry. I didn’t want to leave you in the city, breathing that stinking air, locked in a room, never getting a chance to run.  Really run.  You’ve been a good boy, Sam . . . Go be free.”
  - John Summer

With Issue #5 of Alterna’s moving series Wolves of Summer, writer Tony Keaton is pulling off the masterful trick of allowing each new issue to force the reader to reinterpret the previous ones, while simultaneously adding new light and still raising more questions.

There’s a board game café in Los Angeles!  Gamers, rejoice, as GameHaus Board Game Café has opened its doors in Glendale, CA.

Located at 1800 South Brand Boulevard in Glendale, California, near the Atwater Village and Silverlake neighborhoods, GameHaus features a library of over six hundred board and card game titles, as well as a coffee bar and menu offering great food and drink. The setting is the historic Seeley Building, with beautiful brick walls and old gas meters. The décor reflects the vintage look of the building but with modern board gaming amenities like big tables designed for game boards, comfy lounge areas and cool industrial accents throughout the café.

When Fanboy Comics is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the FBC staff and I hope 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.

The latest installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help highlights the fine folks at Cool Cats Comics and Cards, a new comic book shop in Los Angeles, CA.  Cool Cats stocks a wide variety of comics from publishers like Marvel, DC, Image, IDW, and Dark Horse, but they are also staunch supporters of local, independent creators.  They also have a large selection of original comic book art on display!

The following is an interview with Neil Hopkins, John Forest, and Sherwin Shilati, the creators and director of the comedy web series Neil & John. In this interview, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon chats with Hopkins, Forest, and Shilati about the inspiration for the series, the buzz surrounding the latest episode ("The Key"), and what is up next for the creators.

This interview was conducted on November 22, 2013.

Forever, In Pieces by Kurt Fawver is a bittersweet collection of eighteen short stories that probe and investigate the nature of human existence. The collection from Villipede Publications is billed as speculative horror, but, for me, the majority of the tales felt less horrific or creepy than philosophical examinations on aspects of being. I realize this sounds like an intro to philosophy survey course description, but Fawver’s introduction to the book indicates that he also anticipates readers finishing his work thinking about complex ideas and their own mortality rather than being shocked or horrified by the monsters within it. Each story stands on its own, but they flowed easily, one into the next, as I read.  Like the concept of eternity, the eighteen tales form a circle, and I actually felt a little cheated when the book ended without looping back to the beginning to start the cycle again.

IDW brings us what one might call a “remastered” version of the 1995 comic which spawned an animated TV show of the same name on MTV.  It makes me kind of glad that I never read the earlier version, so I can read this and not be constantly doing a compare and contrast in my head. (I fear I’d end up with mental whip lash.)

The Fanboy Comics crew discuss their reactions to the ninth episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the focus this week on Agent Melinda May and the return of J.

I recently had the pleasure of going to YouTube Space LA to attend the simulcast pre-show for The Day of the Doctor put on by BBC America and Nerdist Industries. It was the perfect way to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the greatest show in all of space and time, Doctor Who. A full-sized TARDIS sat at the entrance to greet cheering fans as they attempted to contain their excitement until the festivities began.
