For listeners to Fanboy Comics' flagship podcast, The Fanboy Scoop: Week in Review, you will already be familiar with comic book writer, artist, and editor Siike Donnelly.  (He recently appeared on the latest episode with OSSM Comics colleague Omar Spahi.)  Siike first became a friend of FBC in 2012, when he launched a Kickstarter campaign for Solestar, an original graphic novel featuring artwork donated by 60 different artists and educational information regarding brain aneurysms, the proceeds of which will go to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.  Those who know Siike are aware that he is a survivor of a brain aneurysm, and that he has spent the past four years helping other survivors and educating the world about the need for further aneurysm research.  After the success of his Solestar Kickstarter campaign, Siike has again launched an ambitious crowdfunding campaign for his latest book, Elan Vital, and he needs your help to make this amazing project a reality.

Pathfinder Legends is a new audio drama from Big Finish Productions that takes listeners to the town of Sandpoint for an unforgettable adventure inspired by the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. This first episode, "Burnt Offerings," is based off the first chapter of the Pathfinder Adventure Path Rise of the Runelords and follows the iconic adventurers Harsk, Ezren, Merisiel, and Valeros as they discover a mysterious evil festering beneath the small town of Sandpoint.

You've got to love a book that includes the tagline, "Get in on the ground floor of Marvel's next big franchise."  To be honest, it's hard to get excited about anything "new" and/or "big" from either of the Big 2. DC New 52, Marvel Now? Yawn. But, when Joe "Freakin'" Maduriera is drawing The Inhumans, you show up to the party.


Not many of you know this about me, but I have this crazy corporate gig.  I wear a suit.  I arrive by 8 a.m., and I often work past 7 p.m.   As a result of this, I have the knowledge of the exact price the my soul goes for on any given day . . . and if it wasn’t so damn corrupted, I’d say I’m selling it at a bargain.  Today was just like the last several hundred days before; it was as if someone had sucked the dregs (all that’s left) of my soul out of my ear with a sharpened metal Capri Sun straw.

The great folks at friendly, neighborhood comic book shop Emerald Knights will be hosting a stop on OSSM Comics' Redefining Awesome tour (during which they will release Issues #1-2 of their new series, Thaniel), and they are inviting all fanboys and fangirls to meet the creators from OSSM Comics and a bevy of LA-area independent creators for a post-WonderCon comic book signing on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014, from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. at Emerald Knights - Comics and Games in Burbank, CA!

For those who will be unable to make it to WonderCon (and those who will need another comic book fix after the con), don't miss this opportunity to meet talented comic book writers and artists at your neighborhood comic book shop!

From the very beginning, the Gamma Quadrant was DS9‘s most tantalizing promise.  An entire sector of unexplored space, in which anything could be waiting. In the early going, it was pretty clear that the show wasn’t quite sure how to fulfill that promise.  By the second season, the team of writers led by Ira Steven Behr would surpass it, but, for the time being, it was to be used for the kinds of episodes more suited to TNG.  Just instead of going to the new life and new civilizations, they would have to come through the wormhole to the cast. 

The Fanboy Comics crew discuss their reactions to the 17th episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the reveal of HYDRA's presence in S.H.I.E.L.D., and the shocking twist at the end of the episode! Enjoy an audio commentary on the episode "Turn, Turn, Turn" by FBC President Bryant Dillon and FBC Contributor Tony Caballero.


The first issue of immense religious horror comic Escape from Jesus Island takes pages from The Island of Dr. Moreau, Scooby Doo, and classic horror movies mixed with a dose of hidden Christian references. (Always check the backgrounds of the panels; I’m just saying.) It wasn’t quite what I expected from the teaser description, but it sets the stage for a dark, disturbing ride examining the ethics of cloning, the role of organized religion in modern society, and how the Vatican works as a government entity as much as a religious one, blended with a hearty plot of pure terror.

We’ll always have Santa Barbra . . .

My favorite show, Psych, ended its glorious, eight-year run in March. I had a funny feeling after Season 7 that they were getting ready for their final bow, but I didn’t want to admit it to myself. I’d almost pushed the thought out of my mind when I saw the announcement from stars James Roday and Dulé Hill, confirming my beliefs. I commend everyone involved for their decision, as much as it pains me to do. They didn’t let things drag out too long like a lot of series do. They felt it was time to move on.

Being up front, the Fear the Boot podcast has been part of my lineup of regularly listened to podcasts for a long time. If you're a fan of tabletop RPGs, it and its massive backlog of 330+ episodes are one of the first I would recommend. Many of the hosts of the show - Dan Repperger, Wayne Cole, Chris Hussey, and more - have demonstrated their creativity time and time again on the show, and it kills me that we don't have more stuff out from them.
