Cards Against HumanityThe following is an interview with Eli Halpern, one of the many creators of Card Against Humanity, a self-described "party game for horrible people."  In this interview, Fanboy Comics' Sam Rhodes talks with Halpern about how the hit game got its start, the various ways that you can acquire a copy, and when you can expect the gold-plated shark-hide edition to hit store shelves.

This interview was conducted on August 23, 2012.

 

 

Smoke and Mirrors 5So, that’s all folks.  The last issue of the first arc of Smoke and Mirrors from Mike Costa (Writer), Ryan Browne (Artist), and Jon Armstrong (Illusionist) has been released . . . FOR NOW!  And, yes, you read that right, this book has a professional magician working on it.  

BW Rorschach 1The comic book event of the summer is nigh!  Before Watchmen, the much-anticipated prequel series to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen, will consist of seven limited series and an epilogue one-shot.  Stay tuned, as the Fanboy Comics crew will be reviewing each title as it is released. Hurm. 

 

 

The Rorschach arc of DC’s Before Watchmen opens with all of the grit you’d expect, but it’s the backdrop of the glitzy, 1980s New York that really makes this book pop.  Everything shines, from the latex gloves of the unidentified serial killer on Rorshach’s radar to the breathtaking helicopter view of the New York skyline.  The colorist, Barbara Ciardo, elevates Lee Bermejo’s pencils with a quiet sheen that subtly suggests a flashback to times gone by - and something else.  Something so rare, yet so potent, in a city spilling over with pimps and drugs and decay, a city so often cursed by our main character: hope.  

 

Major Eazy cover USEFrom Titan Books comes a beautiful, oversized volume of the 1970s war-comic legend, Major Eazy.  What’s that you say?  You don’t know who Major Eazy is?  Well, friend, you might like him, you might hate him, but either way, you can’t ignore Major Eazy.

Husbands S2At a little before noon on Sunday, the last day of SDCC 2012, Jane Espenson (BSG, Buffy), Brad “Cheeks” Bell (Pop-Up Video), Jenna Busch (Moviefone Minute), Sean Hemeon (True Blood), and Jeff Greenstein (Will and Grace) file onto the stage of Room 7AB and begin setting up for the panel "Espenson: An Anagram For Openness" (and I just realized that’s not metaphorical).  The room is packed and the audience settling in eagerly awaits the discussion to follow which will focus on Jane and Brad’s new online series, Husbands, called the “future of TV” by Ira Glass.

Triage #1 Review

 

Triage 1And, WE Comics has done it again!  Another new comic and writer Mairghread Scott and artist Candace Ellis have hit it out of the park.  Triage is geared more towards adults than the other WE Comics fare; it’s snappy and slightly disturbing, and the first issue is a strong opener for what promises to be a really great comic.
