Spencer & Locke 2 hits stores on May 1, 2019, as it continues a well-established story featuring a fierce detective (Locke) and his imaginary partner-in-crime (Spencer). After its five Ringo Award nominations in 2018, including Best Series, the “Calvin and Hobbes meets Sin City” team is back, leading fans into the near future beyond those events of the first story arc.

Alien Day this year celebrates the 40th anniversary of the classic horror, sci-fi film, Alien. The film is recognized for creating a legendary hero and villain (Ripley and Xenomorphs) and feature films and comic books are still being made to expand upon the original story.  If you’re familiar with Alien or any of its following stories, it’s obvious that this franchise isn’t necessarily kid-friendly.

A hollow whisper resonates across a lush green cornfield, “If you build it, he will come.”

Finding a show that’s suitable for both parents and kids (and enjoyable) can be quite a considerable task. Fortunately, The Great British Baking Show enters the puff pastry fold with several seasons currently available on Netflix. What’s even more important - kids will learn more than just how to make a bunch of delicious-looking bakes.

Detective Comics #1000 releases on March 27, celebrating 80 years of the iconic character, Batman. What does Batman mean to the world of fiction? To give you an idea of the significance of this character, simply by this one historic comic book release, the list of writers and artists assigned to Detective Comics #1000 is massive, including Jim Lee, Brian Michael Bendis, Joëlle Jones, Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion, Tom King, Jordie Bellaire, Dave Stewart, Scott Snyder, Becky Cloonan . . . the list goes on and on (comiXology).

What does Batman mean to the world? How do parents explain such a character to their kids? As a child, I was first introduced to Batman in possibly the best way: Batman, the ‘60s television show. This show is non-threatening and presents danger in a comical way that makes it a wonderful introduction to the Caped Crusader.

Movies are a great way for kids to feel like they’re going on an adventure. With the recent release of The Sequels from Fanbase Press, I thought it might be fun to share a few movies that might’ve inspired this comic book series. Granted, The Sequels is geared toward an adult base, so as you (the parent) enjoy reading this story, your kids can get lost in some fantastic '80s movies.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 4 is a tragically great season for parents to let their kids watch. Although my four and six-year-old kids are too young to watch anything beyond Season 1, this season deals with an overarching theme that is quite relevant in the history of the world: doing the right thing.

We are thrilled to chat with Clarissa Thorne, creator of the geek crafting book, A Geek’s Guide to Cross-Stitch: Journeys in Space, published through Fanbase Press. Today, you’ll get a glimpse into the creative process behind this book and how being a parent might’ve impacted Clarissa’s special journey to starting and completing this project.

If you can’t wrap your head around another new year just yet, let’s take a moment to look back at some incredible 2018 achievements in one of our favorite subjects: space.
