Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

The goblins and ghouls at FBC would like to wish you and yours a Happy Halloween!  Today is a day to showcase our cosplay love, carve pumpkins, eat far too much candy, draw Pagan symbols on the floor and then accidentally spray human blood on them, therby unleashing Gachnar who terrorizes the students of UC Sunnydale . . . I mean . . . you know, the regular Halloween things that you do . . .

While all of the aforementioned activities make today tremendously fun, it is just not Halloween without remembering one thing: "Anything Can Happen on Halloween."


TAH KickstarterThe following is an interview with Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, the creators of the hit stage show and podcast, The Thrilling Adventure Hour.  In this interview, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon chats with Acker and Blacker about the recent launch of their Kickstarter campaign to usher the show into multiple forms of media including a graphic novel, motion comic, web series, and concert film.  With nine days remaining in the campaign, the creators have already surpassed their first campaign goal, thanks to the amazing support of their fans.

Mike Diana booksMike Diana was the first-ever comic book artist to receive a criminal conviction for obscenity for his artwork in the United States.  The underground artist, known for his bright, bold colors of western advertising combined with rough, black lines, used his art to voice his honest and unapologetic opinion of mainstream American culture and the underlying hypocrises that he felt existed in that contemporary society.  Now, eighteen years after his conviction, Diana and publisher DIVUS London will be releasing America, a 500-page collection of Diana's rare, limited, and out-of-print cartoons, drawings, and paintings together for the first time. This double book box set contains introductory essays by Marisol Rodriguez and Mike Hunchback and a foreword by Neil Gaiman.

Sams Story Mae CattKickstarter exists to help independent creators voice their creative endeavors to the masses, with the hopes of garnering an interested audience that is willing to take a chance financially on the success of said projects.  Creators who have a true passion for their projects have the ability to showcase their hunger through the campaign page, which often intrigues potential backers and secures their donations.  One such creator who is obviously eager to make her vision come to life is Mae Catt, an indie filmmaker with the goal of producing the film Sam's Story.
