The following is an interview with Shawn Tutt of the California Browncoats, a registered non-profit charity with a mission to promote Firefly, Serenity, and their fandom through charitable works.

Tutt talks to Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon about the purpose behind the California Browncoats and how they are continuing to carry Whedon’s “shiny” torch at the first ever Comikaze Expo!

This interview was conducted on Saturday, November 5, 2011.





Fanboy Comics will continue to post all of its interviews, photos, and commentaries from Comikaze Expo 2011.  Click here for the latest coverage!




Happy Halloween, Fanboy Comics Readers!


The FBC Staff and I hope that you will have a creeptastic October 31st, filled with loads of candy bar minis!  Take out those Halloween costumes (we know that you can do better than a sexy version of a normal costume!), prepare for Trick-or-Treaters, and put on your favorite scary movie to celebrate this ghoulish day in style.


Personally, my Halloween is never complete without a viewing of my favorite holiday movie of all time: The Worst Witch.  I hope that you will enjoy this special tidbit from the film, and that it will add to your Halloween experience.






Yours geekly,
Barbra J. Dillon
Managing Editor, Co-Founder, & Director of Jedi Recruitment

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

Happy Techie Day!

October 3, 2011


The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a Happy Techie Day!  Take a moment to appreciate your resident techie friend and thank them for their efforts.  Techies range from computer technicians to electrical engineers; no matter the trade, anyone who has a highly-skilled technical job deserves to basque in you support.


Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


Our friends at Comikaze Expo have outdone themselves (again!).  On November 5, 2011, Comikaze will be presenting a one-time only reunion of the cast of All That, Nickelodeon’s award-winning sketch comedy series.  You will not want to miss this event, as the cast will join together for a panel discussion and autograph signing for fans at the Los Angeles convention.


Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

On behalf of Fanboy Comics, I am both excited and proud to announce the addition of three new staff members to the FBC fold.  Joining the staff will be Rebecca Lear, Ben Rhodes, and Drew Siragusa, all of whom have provided countless hours of their services and support to make Fanboy Comics as geeky as it is.

Happy Hobbit Day!

September 22


Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


Greetings from the Shire on this happiest of Hobbit Days!  Hobbit Day is the birthday of the hobbits Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, two fictional characters in J. R. R. Tolkien's popular set of books, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.  In the books both Bilbo and Frodo were said to be born on September 22, but of different years. Bilbo was born in the year of 2890 and Frodo in the year of 2968 in the Third Age (1290 and 1368 respectively in Shire-Reckoning.)


The DC reboot is upon us, comic book sniffers! Welcome to the new DC universe! In an effort to help bring new readers into the world of comics, the Fanboy Comics staff has decided to review at least five new #1 issues each week of September, DC’s reboot launch month.

For my second venture into the DCnU, I read Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #1, written by Jeff Lemire and with art by Alberto Ponticelli.  Overall, I am happy to report that Frankenstein #1 was not an overwhelming disappointment like my experience with Swamp Thing #1; however, I feel that I may have been about 20 years too old to have fully enjoyed the issue.
