Two of the loves of my life are Wonder Woman and The Golden Girls. Hey, if that makes me super gay, I don't want to be straight.

After my parents' lovely divorce, we went to live with my grandmother in North Las Vegas. Needless to say, it was a departure from Klinger's Hometown in the Midwest.

I remember being very young, and my siblings and I would climb into bed with our grandmother. (Or, "Nana" as her youthful ego mandated we address her.) My brother and sister and I would climb into bed in our pj's, my grandmother reeking of Vick's Vapo Rub.

The following is an interview with writer David Parkin about his work on the rock-a-billy western comic, The Devil is Due in Dreary, published by Ardden Entertainment.

Parkin talks to Fanboy Comics President Bryant Dillon about the supernatural folklore behind The Devil is Due in Dreary, the book’s impressive creative team (including cover artist Alex Sanchez), and his dream cross-over comic book!

It's a darn good thing Pan Am makes international flights, because this week's episode was all over the place. Don't get me wrong, I am still in love with the concept, style, and potential of the series; I just think it is suffering a little bit of an identity crisis.

After 7 episodes, you would think it would be a little more solid in conception. This week had the girls boozing it up and playing truth or dare on the plane. Perhaps, this was an attempt to create a Sex and the City-type camaraderie amongst the otherwise chemistry-less cast. I like the girls, but there is a serious lack of buyable bonding betwixt them.

Glamour and Glitter fashion and fame - Dazzler's my name! Say what? With the recent release of the Jem DVD box set, it got me reminiscing. I always had a love/hate relationship with the pink-haired pop punkette of the '80s. I truly, truly, truly enjoyed watching the Jem cartoon with my baby sister, Kelly. The drama of Jem vs. The Misfits was epic. Who needs Knots Landing when you have cat fights and day glow hairdos all rolled into one. (Just kidding, EVEYONE needs Knots Landing!) The hate part comes from my disdain for the dolls based on the cartoon. They were hideous with big, ole' jugheads of ghastly proportions. Not to mention the ugliest faces this side of 818. Ah well, it's the closest we'll ever get to a Xanadu cartoon! (OMG! That would be so cool!) And, it was good, damn it!

'Cause I am not a word, I am not a line.

I am not a girl that can ever be defined.


Storm burst onto the comic scene in the '70s as a member of the all new, all different gaggle of rag tag outlaw mutants, the Uncanny X-men. A silver-haired, blue-eyed African Goddess, she had me at "hullo." Created by Len Wein and designed by Dave Cockrum, her original costume is my favorite to date. (Although, Tim Gunn would likely have a field day with it. "Who is this woman and where is she going? She looks like a drag queen prostitute attending a hooker convention!")

The following is an interview with writer Tony Caballero about his work on the top-rated Lifetime Original Movie, Magic Beyond Words: The J.K. Rowling Story.

 

Below, Caballero talks to Fanboy Comics President Bryant Dillon about how he got involved in Magic Beyond Words, his first experiences with Harry Potter, his writing process, and an exciting, upcoming project based on another popular young adult book series!

Nice Bieber!

By Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

I don't get it. The first time I heard of Justin Bieber, I had overheard two middle-aged women talking about a recent talk show appearance, getting more hot and bothered the more they talked about the pubescent pop sensation.

What are they saying? Beaver? Beeper? Ah, who gives a crap? I don't get it.

Release the crack-whore! Okay, before we get started, let me just say that this is NOT an anti-Kardashian article. I've just been dying to use that opening line. I actually like the Kardashians. Really. Okay, I may be a little biased, as they were the catalyst for my 15 nano seconds of fame. I had the privilege of interviewing Kim (along with Carmen Electra) promoting Disaster Movie at Comic-Con in San Diego a few years back for a web show. They even aired 2 seconds of the infamous interview on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Thanks to E!'s heavy repeat rotation schedule, I'm recognized at the grocery store by my big gay voice to this day.
