As a brain aneurysm survivor, Donnelly was forced to rebuild his speech patterns and relearn how to walk.  With his company, The Naïve Project, he led a successful Kickstarter campaign to publish Solestar in early 2013.  According to Donnelly, “I wanted to create a superhero that knew loss right from the start. It’s kind of the staple when creating someone with powers. They have to come from tragedy to obtain victory. This is something I now understand on a personal level. Hopefully, victory follows my tragedy with this project.”

DW Shroud of SorrowWINNERS ANNOUNCED BELOW


Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

We know that, for many of you, the be-all-and-end-all of sci-fi TV can be defined by two words: Doctor WhoWho fervor is on the rise, given the show’s 50th anniversary this year, so Broadway Paperbacks has fanned the fandom's flame by introducing its paperback original Doctor Who tie-in series. Featuring all-new Eleventh Doctor adventures, Justin Richards’s Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, Nicholas Briggs’s Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation, and Tommy Donbavand’s Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow are penned in collaboration with BBC’s Cardiff-based TV production team. These authors were given advance access to the scripts of forthcoming episodes and made privy to the secrets of the Doctor’s future before even the most fanatical of fans. Approved by the BBC to make sure nothing is overlooked, these books have the intimate and authentic feel of lost episodes.

Our friends at Broadway have generously provided us not only with a copy of each of the paperbacks, but also a Doctor Who Christmas in April Blu-ray Giftpack (featuring “Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol” and “Doctor Who: The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe”) to give away to our Dalek-loving readers.

TinkerPrepare for a high-flying Steampunk adventure in Tinker, a new sci-fi fantasy webseries that is currently crowdfunding through KickstarterTinker is a series about the Tinkers, a father/daughter team of genius mechanics who live in the overpopulated city of San Francisco.  In an alternate history run by bulky and rather finicky machinery, the Tinkers are masters of their craft and are often called upon to repair, invent, and even retrofit anything from large engines to personal wrist watches. When a wealthy noblewoman, Lady Cushing, hires the duo, they are thrust into a world of air ships, danger, and excitement in which the balance of worldly power rests unaware in the tool-calloused hands of the Tinker family.  Featuring a stylish Steampunk wardrobe, props, sets, digital environments, and an original score and soundtrack of Steampunk-inspired music, Tinker aims to evolve the genre into a multi-ethnic, culture-exploring, collection of stories that does for Steampunk what Star Trek did for science fiction.

 

Uncle AliceDark Matter Publishing LLC, a transmedia company that specializes in the publication and transformation of comic, graphic, and Young Adult books into film and television, is launching a Kickstarter campaign for its brand new property, Uncle Alice Presents.

Uncle Alice Presents is a shock-rock, genre-bending comic book series, graphic novel, and television pilot featuring the legendary Alice Cooper. Each issue tells a story of the grim and macabre seen through the eyes of Uncle Alice, the gatekeeper of the netherworld between Heaven and Hell. From paintings that seek revenge to mad scientists that crossbreed beach babes with fish, the things Uncle Alice will share are just plain creepy.

The Final Plague 1The following is an interview with Johnnie Arnold, the writer of Action Lab: Danger Zone's new comic book series, The Final Plague.  In this interview, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon chats with Arnold about what does (and does not!) make The Final Plague a zombie story, the creative process of working with artist Tony Guaraldi-Brown, and the many other projects on which he is currently working.

This interview was conducted on April 9, 2013.
