Dave Stevens was an illustrator with an incredibly diverse list of credits. He began his career as an assistant to Russ Manning, inking on comic strips like Tarzan and Star Wars in the 1970s. He also drew storyboards on various projects, ranging from Hanna Barbara’s Superfriends cartoon to movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark. In the early 1980s, he became one of the first independent comic creators to succeed with his own character; he created an adventure comic set in the 1930s that was inspired by classic pulp adventures: The Rocketeer.

Who doesn’t like a good, old-fashioned mystery? Especially when it takes place around the turn of the century and features tarot cards, as well as thought transference, small villages with strange residents, and spooky cemeteries? That’s what awaits the reader in the first issue of Dark Horse Comics’ The British Paranormal Society: Time Out of Mind.

After a disastrous encounter with the Tax Collector and his goons, the crew is on a time crunch to get the medical supplies Simon needs to save a life. Issue #3 has a few surprises thrown in for good measure, and there are a few character moments that feel like they’re building up to something big.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single xenomorph in possession of a good brain, must be shown in the style of Alien (1979). A multitude of aliens moving as mobile cannon fodder must follow the Aliens (1986) route. One may add all manner of additional layers to this formula (religion, Winona Ryder, more aliens, etc.), but your basic haunted house in space is either being prowled by an 8-foot Dracula or flooded by a horde of hive-minded zombies.

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 30, 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.

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)!

Ruby is back 150% as the Geek-Girl I fell in love with in the first mini-series as she faces off with another nemesis on the cover of Geek-Girl #9.  I had no clue who the sunglass-wearing blond lady might be, but watching Ruby go hand to hand with another super is part of what drew me into this world.   It also gave me hope that we’d see some intense match ups after a few issues focusing on introspection and character development (all great things, but I was ready for some exciting action).

The following is an interview with John Kratky regarding the recent release of the comic book series, Home Free. In this interview, Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon chats with Kratky about the creative process of bringing the world and characters to life, whether readers can anticipate future installments, and more!
