Anatomy of WarIn the last year or two, crowdfunding has completely changed the world of comics, if not the world of independent creators as a whole. The effect has been enormous, allowing many projects - that would never have seen the light of day due to lack of funds - to find a possible level of success that had, until this point, never been within their reach. It’s also allowed incredibly intimate and personal projects to find their feet by allowing their creators to appeal directly to fellow comic book readers (and many others) by sharing the message, story, or mission behind the work. Anatomy of War, written by Roshawn D.  Rochester and featuring the art of Luisa Russo, is one of those passion projects, and while it may get off to a slow start, it is a story where the reader can’t help but feel the personal and profound efforts behind the story.

'Mr Blank:' Book Review


Mr BlankTo read Justin Robinson’s Mr Blank is like following some self-deprecating, white rabbit into a sprawling, L.A. noir wonderland on a 100-m.p.h., nerd culture-fueled rollick.  Hot on the heels of Robinson’s thrilling zombie noir, Undead on Arrival, which was released just four months before, Mr Blank will keep you guessing until the very end.  

Husbands 5Well, we’ve reached the end of the road, comic book sniffers! This week saw the wrap up of Dark Horse Comics’ digital alliance with Jane Espenson and Brad "Cheeks" Bell’s Husbands property, and the last two chapters are absolutely stellar. For such an unlikely foray into comics, team Husbands has really delivered in a way that “the big two” endlessly struggle to achieve. Espenson, Bell, and Dark Horse have given this geek a booster shot of optimism that the comic book medium still has the potential to go way beyond the “capes and cowls,” appealing to new readers who have no interest in the super-powered beating that crap out of each other during the latest event o’ epic-ness.

Stupor Heroes TTSThe FFOW! series takes a look at that vast library created by the proud and the passionate: fan films.  Whether the budget and talent is astronomical or amateur, FFOW! celebrates the filmmakers whose love of comics, books, movies, video games, and TV shows inspires them to join the great conversation with their own homemade masterpieces.

Every summer in the city of Metropolis, IL, superhero fans flock to the four-day Superman Celebration festival and attend live concerts, a massive costume contest, and the Superhero Fan Film Competition.  The 2013 competition is now open for entries, so this week we take a look at last year’s hilarious first place winner.




BW Ozy 4The comic book event of the summer is nigh!  Before Watchmen, the much-anticipated prequel series to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen, will consist of seven limited series and an epilogue one-shot.  Stay tuned, as the Fanboy Comics crew will be reviewing each title as it is released. Hurm. 



I should confess that I haven’t been reading much of the Before Watchmen series other than Ozymandias. This is not a principled stand; I just don’t have many local friends who would lend me comics. As a result, I can’t say whether the sweeping generalizations I’m about to make apply to the rest of the series, or just to Ozymandias.

I don’t know why they are making this comic.

Hurm. 



Well, after some delays and scheduling weirdness, it’s finally here: the final chapter of Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre. Was it worth the wait?


sushi girl posterIn what may be the most intense and violent thriller to be released this year, Sushi Girl is a film that will leave its mark with moviegoers as the pinnacle of modern exploitation films.  Independently produced by Assembly Line in association with Level Up Productions, the film’s creators masterfully packaged an extremely talented cast and crew with a twisted and gut-wrenching script that will stand up next to any big studio production.  Supplemented by an already growing fanbase as confirmed by a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign to premiere the film at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Sushi Girl is a shining example of how good, old-fashioned creativity, hard work, and dedication can develop into a solid motion picture.

David Krumholtz pairing10.) The Santa Clause / Batman and Robin

Child actor Eric Lloyd played the lovable Charlie Calvin in The Santa Clause and then went on to play young Bruce Wayne in the colorful and perhaps, awesomely bad, Batman and Robin. Think of it this way: Spending time at the North Pole followed by an evening with Mr. Freeze should put anyone in the spirit for snow and holiday décor. Or, you could always pop in Serenity after The Santa Clause and watch Bernard the Elf (David Krumholtz) as Mr. Universe.

Bigfoot SotEBigfoot: Sword of the Earthman is one of the more interesting comics I have read. It feels like Jack Kirby and Edgar Rice Burroughs had a love child, and that love child was awesome. The premise is normal enough. Bigfoot is a great fighter on Mars (think Conan the Barbarian) who battles to escape enslavement by the evil so-and-so who is ruling one section of the red planet. The civilization and creatures felt like old-school Jack Kirby to me (admittedly as the guy who has read like four Silver Age comics), and the sense of adventure and clearly deliberate ignoring of science in this science fiction story felt very Burroughs. The result is silly, odd, and fun.
