Pawn ShopSuperheroes, monsters, and galaxies far, far away often grace the pages of comic books, but when it gets down to it, comic books are about one thing: people.  So, when comic book creator Joey Esposito decided to create a new graphic novel, he skipped the capes and space ships and went straight to the heart of the funny pages.  After successfully launching his last graphic novel, Footprints, through Kickstarter, he has returned to the crowd-funding forum with the upcoming graphic novel Pawn Shop: Love and Life in NYC.

The Arcs

The Arcs

"The Arcs is among the most original graphic novels I’ve experienced in recent memory and is a tale that stuck with me for eons after I’d finished reading." - Geekscape

SYNOPSIS:
How strong is your faith?  Centuries after God’s abdication from the Earth, the seven Archangels are trapped in a losing war against Lucifer and his demonic forces.  Unable to ascend into heaven, unable to even die, the Arcs were tasked by the Almighty to keep humanity safe from Lucifer until His return.  But as time ticks on, as more and more angels are clawed to shreds by the demons, as angels begin to lose faith and join the hellions, the Arcs must face the real question: what if God isn’t coming back to save them?

Saturn Awards statueThe Fanboy Comics staff attended last night's 38th Annual Saturn Awards in Burbank, CA, celebrating the best in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror.  Stay tuned to the Fanboy Comics website for lots of interviews and photos from the coolest presenters, nominees, and award winners, including James Remar, Lea Thompson, Frank Oz, Bruce Greenwood, and more!

 

For now, here is a list of last night's winners!  Congratulations to all, and thank you for your contributions to our favorite geek classics!

 

Agent 88Kickstarter campaigns have enabled thousands of independent creators to bring their work to a larger audience, and with so many worth projects in need of funding, it can be difficult to choose which projects to fund.  Well, if having the support of Heavy Metal Magazine and Diamond Select Toys is any indication, the Kickstarter campaign for the web series Agent 88 is a sure bet.

With only 12 days remaining in their campaign to reach their goal of $88,000, Agent 88 creators Digger T. Mesch of Dig Deep Entertainment and Producer Jan Utstein-O'Neill of Hurricane Entertainment have good reason to be excited by their web series.  For those unfamiliar with the project, Agent 88 is a web series that introduces the world's most deadly poster assassin: an 88-year-old British woman with Alzheimer's disease.  In this odd-ball, kung fu epic described by the creators as Kill Bill meets Mr. Magoo, London theatre actress Kay D'Arcy (Criminal Minds) will star under the guest direction of director/producer Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, Grimm Fairy Tales).      

 

BBComic 0112As the Managing Editor of Fanboy Comics, I have the distinct honor and privilege to work with amazingly talented individuals throughout geek culture: actors, writers, artists, directors, photographers . . . the list is endless.  It is always a pleasure to learn more about their craft and to follow their artistic endeavors throughout various stages of the creative process.  Needless to say, when the opportunity arose to work with one such industry professional on a comic book-themed photo shoot, I jumped at the chance!

 

Raw StudiosAt San Diego Comic-Con 2012, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon chats with actor Thomas Jane (The Punisher) and artist Tim Bradstreet (Vampire: The Masquerade) about their work with Raw Studios, the release of the Dark Country graphic novel, and what fans can expect from their Saturday panel at the convention.
