At The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, CA, Fanboy Comics' Sam Rhodes chats with actor Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) about his work on Justice League: War, his hope to portray the live-action version of the character, and more.

Over the past year, Fanboy Comics has been following the indie comic book series Creepy Scarlett with interest, as the adventures of the series' candy-obsessed dead girl who lives in a graveyard and can only leave it during Halloween certainly offer stories that are out of the ordinary.  Now, series creator Graeme Buchan is ready to continue Creepy Scarlett's adventures with Issue #4, but he needs your help to make the latest issue a reality.

The following is an interview with Clint Wolf, co-creator of the indie web comic Zombie Ranch. In this interview, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon chats with Wolf about the web comic's creative process that he shares with wife Dawn, the inspiration for the new take on the zombie genre, and his recommendations for other creators interested in starting their own web comics.

This interview was conducted on January 29, 2014.

In Cascade #1 and #2 when Mark’s fiancée Sue Daniel, reveals that she’s pregnant, the daddy to be couldn’t be more pleased by the news. He wants to shout it from the roof tops, and the happy event feels like the perfect opportunity to meet Sue’s reclusive family at their remote, rural farmhouse; however, Sue is strangely reluctant to take him home to meet dear old Mom and Dad. She could just be worrying that her conservative family won’t accept her pre-wedlock pregnancy, or is it something far more sinister? Throw in a redneck ex-boyfriend, a broken-down car, a horrible storm, a mysterious Native American curse, and an eerie house that looks straight out of a horror movie, and the stage is set for a few chills to run down readers’ spines.

I recently had the pleasure of perusing Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Newspaper Comic Strips Collection from Titan Books and Aardman Entertainment.  The book features 311 beautiful color strips originally published in Britain’s newspaper The Sun, a very nice intro from Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park, and a generous number of luscious, high quality, two-page-spread photos from the Wallace & Gromit films (my favorite part).

Mystery, mysticism, and adventure fill the pages of the new indie comic book, The Shepherd, a 24-page comic book created by Nathan Sage and Ron Joseph.  The Shepherd tells the tale of a shepherd on a distant planet who must make some tough decisions when she finds a wounded ancient beast on her flock's grazing grounds.  While Sage and Joseph have spent the last three months building the vast world of The Shepherd, they now need your help to raise the necessary funds to make this comic book a reality!

H.G. Wells’ tale of the demented genius, Dr. Moreau, has inspired many creators to expand on the story of the man who yearned to create new forms of life. Megan Shepherd’s debut novel, The Madman’s Daughter, pushes further by not simply analyzing Moreau’s psyche but translating it through the eyes of a descendent. Sixteen-year-old Juliet Moreau can barely remember her father; he fled London six years earlier upon charges of illegal vivisection, destroying her mother and, ultimately, leading to Juliet’s sinking into abject poverty. The young woman fears that her father’s purported madness runs through her veins, so when she finds evidence he may still be alive, she grasps at the flimsy straws. Her father isn’t the only person from Juliet’s past that is still alive, though, and her journey to find her father on a mysterious, hidden island reveals things about all of them no one wanted to explore.
