In yet another unprecedented year, deciding on gifts for friends and family is likely to be the last thing on your mind this holiday season.  In order to help those who have been hardest hit by the pandemic, this year Fanbase Press is focusing ONLY on the must-play tabletop games recommendations which may be purchased from small businesses and independent creators.  Games make great gifts for the geeks in your life, especially for the holidays where the requisite number of players is usually right around the corner.

Throughout 2020, 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 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, November 13, 2021, 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.

We hope that you will join us in giving these projects a moment of your time (and possibly your support)!

Rufus Marigold is an extremely nervous guy. The ring of a telephone causes him to freeze in terror. Encountering a friend on the street is a crippling minefield of small talk. Giving a presentation at work is an impossible task that must be avoided by any means possible. Everyday life for Rufus is a harrowing obstacle course of anxiety, self-doubt, and avoidance. If any of this sounds familiar, you, like the author of Rufus Marigold, Ross Murray, likely have some experience with anxiety. And in the wake of the COVID pandemic, Rufus Marigold is more relatable than ever.

What If…? is a wonderfully fun series on Disney+ that examines the possibilities of life in the Marvel universe, how every choice impacts the outcomes we’ve come to know, and how the characters we love might be different in some way. Is this series appropriate for kids similar in age to my own? As my own kids are ages 7 and 9, the answer is probably not, especially since What If…? is rated as TV-14. Some ratings don’t always have to be adhered to so strictly, but in this case, I would avoid the series for parents with kids near my own kids’ ages.

The following is an interview with Philip Hirzel regarding the recent release of the horror-themed RPG, Midnight Showings.
