These days, if I were to pick up a Star Wars comic book and hope for a new storyline, I would expect to read about tales during the currently popular Clone Wars. Naturally, you'll feel my surprise and excitement when I asked to read Star Wars Volume 3: Rebel Girl and learn all about what happens to some of my favorite original characters from a galaxy far, far away.

You know what I love most about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic books? The whole tie in with the action figures. Each comic I've read so far has reminded me of so many fond memories I had as a child. And, in TMNT #38, I saw so many of my favorite action figure characters!

Boy, am I glad I caught up on Volume 9 of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Monsters, Misfits, and Madmen. I feel as though all the other TMNT comic books I’ve read as of late make much more sense now. A whole lot of trouble is brewing in New York City, and I can why tell our heroes would be stressed.

Beautiful. Just beautiful! No. I'm not talking about the destruction of the Death Star. I'm not even talking about the famous Princess Leia herself, although the same could certainly be said about her. No. Clearly, I'm talking about the comic book I just read, Star Wars: Rebel Heist.

In the movie business, the good guys always win. And, they should! Good will always prevail, even if evil pins us down every once in a while.

But, not all villains are bad. To some, the baddies are the good guys. And, Star Wars: A Shattered Hope shows us exactly that. Well, at least it tells a beautiful story through the eyes of Ensign Nanda, Commanding Officer to one of the worst villains ever created: Darth Vader!

Uh oh. Here we go . . .

In last month's issue of our ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comic books, our heroes met with Hob who was currently building his own mutant army to help win the fight against Shredder and his foot clan. Everything was going well until Hob's dim-witted pigeon friend spilled the beans about his plans and the Turtles' involvement to baddies Rocksteady and BeBop. And now, they're looking for revenge!

When my boss first posted the title for this comic book, I knew it had to be a mistake. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles AND the Ghostbusters . . . IN THE SAME STORYLINE!!! No way. These are two of my favorite childhood cartoons. Could they really work together? That's when I realized the connection: New York City.

This whole month has been torture for me! Ever since I read the first issue of Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland back in August, I could hardly wait for October to read the next chapter in this fresh, new comic book series. I was immediately hooked by Eric Shanower's beautiful story and unique take on the brilliant works of Winsor McCay.

As Halloween is fast approaching, the Fanboy Comics staff and contributors decided that there was no better way to celebrate this horrifically haunting holiday than by sharing our favorite scary stories! Be they movies, TV shows, video games, novels, or anything other form of entertainment, members of the FBC crew will be sharing their "scariest" stories each day leading up to Halloween. We hope that you will enjoy this sneak peek into the terrors that frighten Fanboy Comics!

When this assignment was first sent to me, my mind immediately went into a racing frenzy! I mean, there are so many amazing villains out there in the comic book world, not to mention those in film, TV, books, video games, and whatever other media you can think of. But, who is ultimately the SCARIEST?

I’ve been reading comic books for a little over 3 months now.  I’m waiting for the day that I pick out a comic book to review that I simply don’t like, but who am I kidding?  I have nerd blood running through my veins, and Star Wars: Dark Times just made that blood boil!
