Throughout 2020 and 2021, Fanbase Press' weekly Creator Forums provided comics industry professionals with an opportunity to discuss ways to cope with the changing comics landscape in light of the Coronavirus. As a new year begins and the impact of COVID-19 continues, it is not lost on us that comic book conventions - and the opportunity to connect with industry colleagues personally and professionally - will not take place in the same manner for the foreseeable future. To provide further opportunities to connect with industry creators, publishers, media, retailers, and educators during our collective quarantine, Fanbase Press will be hosting its next Comics & Coffee virtual meetup on Saturday, April 2, 2022, at 10 a.m./PT (1 p.m./EST). Fanbase Press' Comics & Coffee is a FREE hour-long Zoom session taking place every Saturday, welcoming new and experienced comics pros to a virtual meetup that aims to fill the convention-less void with networking opportunities, sharing creative successes and failures, and troubleshooting ways to navigate the industry in the weeks and months to come.

The Fanbase Press staff is very excited to be exhibiting once again at WonderCon 2022, alongside a number of other talented independent creators!

Throughout the weekend, we will be meeting fans at the Fanbase Press booth (Small Press SP-99), where you can purchase all of our comics and graphic novels, including the newly released Nuclear Power trade paperback and the multi-award-winning title, Quince!

Here at Fanbase Press, we strive to provide an outlet for up-and-coming creators to promote and showcase their incredible works. With thousands of creators utilizing crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo to make those works a reality, we will highlight these talented creators and their noteworthy campaigns through #CrowfundingFridays! We hope that you will join us in giving these projects a moment of your time (and possibly your support)!
