NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is constantly providing the world with updates on their exploration missions and scientific endeavors, even aboard the International Space Station. Last year alone saw the final moments of Cassini as it plunged into Saturn, live coverage of the Solar Eclipse, and the Geeky Parent Guide even explored mission updates from Mars.
When we last saw our hero, Jupiter Jet, she was stealing from the rich to care for her neighbors, trying to avoid a bruising from Bruno after missing payment on rent, and saving her brother, Chuck, after his recent test flight resulted in the two of them falling from the roof. Fortunately, Jupiter Jet, also known as Jacky, was wearing a dress that turns into a parachute. And fortunately for Chuck, Jacky doesn’t hesitate to jump off the roof to save her brother.
How old were you when you first watched a Star Wars film? Was it A New Hope or some other film in the franchise? As we’re in full "Force" of the latest release, The Last Jedi, the Geeky Parent Guide wants to look at the popular franchise that many love - and want to continue seeing more of in the future - and look at the wide-ranging cast of characters that make Star Wars entertaining for almost all ages. The films’ ratings might help you determine when you’ll find it acceptable for your kids to watch.
Jupiter Jet #1 is a successful Kickstarter-backed comic book from writers Jason Inman and Ashley Victoria Robinson. Inman brings his experience as host of DC All-Access, and Robinson is a winner from the 2013 Top Cow Talent Hunt and Top Cow Head Editor. They both also contributed to the Love is Love anthology, and this is their “first comic book series together as a married couple.”
The holiday season is upon us, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the rear-view mirror, finding the right gift might seem impossible at times.

The following is an interview with Matt Mair Lowery and Cassie Anderson, the creative team of the graphic novel, Lifeformed: Cleo Makes Contact, published by Dark Horse Comics. As previously seen on Fanbase Press, we’ve had the opportunity to review Lifeformed: Cleo Makes Contact which “creates a young female character well and does so in a way that seems superhuman.” In this interview, Fanbase Press Senior Contributor S.T. Lakata chats with Lowery and Anderson about their shared creative process, the inspiration for the story, what they have in store for readers, and more!
If you grew up loving horror movies, then Winnebago Graveyard is your gateway into the comic book world. Most of this trade paperback, collecting issues one through four of the series, takes place at night. The darker illustrations, present with the classic motel “VACANCY” sign, instantly pull you into the moment – as if you’re waiting for the pulsating chase to begin.
With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we often find ourselves becoming more introspective, reflecting on the people and things for which we are thankful. As we at Fanbase Press celebrate fandoms, this year, the Fanbase Press staff and contributors have chosen to honor their favorite fandoms, characters, or other elements of geekdom for which they are thankful, and how those areas of geekiness have shaped their lives and values.
As the seasons change and the colder weather approaches, we at the Geeky Parent Guide want to share some fun ways to pass the time when it is too cold to go outside. There are an endless number of games out there, so we’ll focus on a few that the entire family can play.
