Velvet is back! After spending the previous issue focusing on the agents on our heroine’s trail, the rogue spy is once again front and center—and she’s gone on the offensive. Having returned to London, Velvet is going to great lengths to get inside the agency she’s been falsely accused of betraying. She kidnaps her former boss and straps a bomb to his body, just to create a distraction big enough for her to get past security. The director of the agency warns her that any and all sensitive information will be immediately locked down in such an emergency, impossible to access, but Velvet is undeterred. She obviously has a plan. What that plan actually is, we can only guess.
At Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo 2014, Fanboy Comics Contributor Steven W. Alloway talks with the staff of Cracked.com about their experiences at the convention, how they ended up working for the website, and more.
The adventures of Adam, magician extraordinaire turned reluctant secret agent, continue. In this issue, we see him try to match wits with Evy, the beautiful and brilliant head of an enemy organization, intent on . . . well, I guess we’ll find that out next issue.
At Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo 2014, Dina Kampmeyer [of Lady Steam Designs and the geek singles group SG:LA (Single Geeks in L.A.)], talks with Fanboy Comics Contributor Steven W. Alloway about the Los Angeles-based convention, tips for single geeks looking for love (or dates), and more.
This issue of Bullet Gal takes a break from the regular story about Mitzi and her training to become a superhero. Instead, we get a closer look at Brigit, the beautiful and deadly French assassin who’s trying to eliminate Mitzi/Bullet Gal for the mob.
One of the taglines for Wraith of Love is “Action, jacked up on estrogen.” It’s a gritty, female-driven action comic, that’s all about empowerment, rather than objectification. It’s also a pretty fun read.
Eden, premiering November 7th at AFI Fest 2014, isn’t so much a film as it is a journey. It doesn’t exactly have an arc, nor does it flow the way we generally expect films to flow. It’s a French film, with a different focus and a different feel than American films generally have. We watch the story unfold through a series of stops on the journey—fragments and increments that might not have a traditional Hollywood structure, but in the end, tell us everything we need to know.
That All-Star Bulletproof Kid is an anthology comic that does something rather unique. There has, so far, only been one issue released of Australian writer Matt Kyme’s That Bulletproof Kid comic. Storylines are just beginning, characters aren’t yet firmly established, but what Kyme did was to approach a bunch of different writers and artists and ask them to take those characters and do something with them. Anything they wanted. What follows is a series of stories that are all at least nominally about the same things/people . . . but which go in all different directions, feature wildly different artistic styles, and, ultimately, have virtually nothing in common.
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!

We hope that you will enjoy this sneak peek into the terrors that frighten Fanboy Comics!
There’s a scene in Michael Crichton’s sci-fi thriller, Prey, maybe halfway through the book, that for me really encapsulates what makes it such an intense, amazing read. At the beginning, our protagonist/narrator Jack is an unemployed software developer, now stay-at-home dad. He wrangles the kids all day, pretty much by himself, while his wife works longer and longer hours and seems increasingly distant and uncaring.
Spoofs and satires about third-rate superhero teams are considerably more common than you would think. Even spoof reality show about third-rate superhero teams have been done multiple times before. Because of that, if a film chooses to go that route, it really needs to be something special in order to make itself stand out, and I’m happy to report that Real Heroes succeeds on that front. It’s unique, fun, engaging, and often laugh-out-loud funny.
