Indie comic book publisher Inverse Press has been quite busy in 2013, producing titles including The Blind Eye, Clown Town, and Flesh of White. In addition, April of 2013 saw the runaway success of their Kickstarter campaign for Roadkill du Jour, a 4-part series about motorcycles, magic, vengeance, voodoo, and roadkill. Now, Inverse Press has returned to Kickstarter with the hopes of funding the second issue in the series, and they need your help to continue this dark and gritty story!
For those comic book readers in the market for high quality and entertaining all-ages comic books, today is your lucky day!

The staff of Fanboy Comics is always happy to support independent filmmakers, which is why we wanted to tell our readers about Reunion, a new horror/thriller from the creators at MOnsterworks66. Full of twists and turns, Reunion tells the story of a ghost who tries to reunite his lookalike twin with his mysterious murderer.
In order to bring this film to life, MOnsterworks66 initiated an indiegogo campaign to raise funds for Reunion's production costs. For more information regarding the campaign and the film itself, please see the exciting trailer and the full press release below.
Throughout last week, I posted reviews of Bloomers, a new online sitcom that puts a humorous, heartfelt, and modern spin on life in the big city. I greatly enjoyed making my way through Season 1 and the first two episodes of Season 2, and I recently caught up with the remainder of the second season (in advance of Wednesday’s release of Episode 8). Each episode of Season 2 continues to focus more heavily on individual members of the cast; however, Episode 7 sets up quite a few cliffhangers that will leave viewers counting down the hours until Wednesday, June 19th.
Earlier this week, I posted a review of Bloomers: Season 1, a new online sitcom that puts a humorous, heartfelt, and modern spin on life in the big city. As promised, I am making my way through Season 2 of the series and loving every moment. While Season 1 introduced the audience to seven 20-something friends, their intertwining relationships, and their daily struggles to find themselves amidst the chaos, the second season has, thus far, focused more on individual members of the group, allowing each of the actors to shine.
Have you been longing to fill the void left by Ross, Rachel, Joey, and the rest of the Central Perk gang, but do you find that watching reruns of Friends just doesn’t have the same “bite” to it? Well, look no further! In the new online sitcom Bloomers, seven 20-something friends living in Downtown Los Angeles take on life in the big city, landing the right career, and finding Mr. (or Ms.) right in a gutsy and modern way that will hook viewers and leave them craving more. With a combination of Sex in the City’s sassiness and Husbands’ willingness to take on controversial issues in an honest and open manner, Bloomers is an entertaining look at friends who are still struggling to grow up and find themselves.
