This month's sponsor: All episodes of The Fanbase Weekly Podcast this month are sponsored by the comic book series, Killswitch. Killswitch is a cyberpunk action comic, exploring themes of guilt, social justice, and what we owe to each other as fellow humans. It's a story of self-acceptance, of change, and of hope. And it's also about a prison break from a comet orbiting the sun. Written by Tilly and Susan Bridges, with stunning art by Walter Geovani, vibrant colors by Brittany Peer, and immaculate letters by Simon Bowland and Ed Dukeshire. The digital and printed versions of the trade paperback collecting the entire miniseries are available now at killswitchcomic.com.
