Choose-Your-Weapon-Dice-TabletopDo you live in the Los Angeles area?  Do you love gaming conventions?  Then, you will not want to miss Gamex 2013, which is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend (May 24-27, 2013) at the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel.

Hosted by Strategicon, Gamex 2013 is one of California's finest gaming conventions, offering attendees the chance to play, watch, and buy a variety of board games, card games, miniatures, roleplaying, collectables, and computer games.  The convention will be open from Friday, May 24th, at noon until Monday, May 27th, at 6 p.m.

Fanboy Comics' own Kristine Chester and Atomic Robo: RPG creator Mike Olson will be at the convention and running several events (listed below).  Make sure to pre-register for the games, as spaces fill very quickly!


Hunger-Games-Cake“I kept telling myself if I could just hold out until May, just May 8th, I would turn twelve and be able to sign up for the tessarae and get that precious oil and grain to feed us.”

Katniss Everdeen – The Hunger Games (pg. 27-28)

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

May 8th is the day that Panem welcomed everybody’s favorite Girl on Fire into the world. Today is the day we celebrate the birthday of Katniss Everdeen of District 12 (and The Hunger Games). The staff at FBC couldn’t be happier than to wish her an enjoyable and, hopefully, non-violent day, free of tessarae concerns and full of a chorus of mockingjays singing that classic b-day tune and, one imagines, a delicious cake courtesy of the Mellark Bakery. (It pays to know someone on the inside . . . especially when it involves frosting!)

FBC FCBD Sampler Cover 2013Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

May the 4th Be With YouDear Fanboy Comics Readers:

This will be a day long remembered...

Today, we celebrate one of the geekiest holidays of them all, Star Wars Day! To most die-hard fans, any day could be Star Wars Day. I watch the films religiously, so what makes this one day so special? Well, what started as a clever pun amongst fans, May the 4th be with you, blossomed into a full-fledged geek holiday over the years. So much so that LucasFilm embraced it and uses it as a day to make big announcements in the Star Wars community. What awesome news can we expect this year? Frankly, I'm not sure! With the recent news of Episode VII, VIII, and IX, as well as standalone films every single year starting in 2015, one has to wonder exactly what else they can spring on us.

FCBD 2013Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

Fanboy Comics (FBC) is excited to announce the release of its very first Free Comic Book Day sampler on Saturday, May 4, 2013.

Samuel Morse(Click here for Morse Code translation.)

Listen up, my little dots and dashes, because Morse Code Day is today, April 27th, and was created to commemorate the birthday of painter and co-inventor of the Morse Code, Samuel Morse.  Yeah, I bet you didn’t know he was a painter, too.  A pretty successful painter, actually. Look it up, I bet you’ll be impressed. 

Monsters UniversityDear Fanboy Comics Readers:

The brand new trailer for Disney/Pixar's Monsters University has been released on Yahoo! Movies and!

Synopsis: Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But, during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.

There Will Be SnacksAre you in the mood for a night of laughs with a bevy of talented and hilarious women?  If you answered, "YES!" then you will not want to miss "There Will Be Snacks," a free sketch comedy show performed by eight of LA's most talented female writer/performers engaging in some serious girl-on-girl sketch comedy action.  "There Will Be Snacks" will take place on Tuesday, April 30th, at 8:00 p.m. at the Comedy Central Stage!
