In 1999, Gabriel and his friends saved the world using the chatroom, W0RLDTR33. Their battle was fought against a secret section of the Internet called the Undernet which was trying to infect everything, sealing it for good... or so they thought. Now, someone named PH34R seems to have found the Undernet and is unleashing it once again, but this time with all of the new technology of the 21st century.
Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is one of the best days each and every year, and I don’t think that will ever change.

Summer got a taste of the superhero life when she stepped in as Geek-Girl while Ruby was out of commission, and she’s missing the thrill of having powers to use for good. It doesn’t help that Ruby and Kerry seem to be bonding, so being able to join Johnny Carlyle’s superhero team might be the easiest way to stay BFFs with her bestie. Meanwhile, a new baddie enters the super scene in Acorn Ridge, and their mimicry skills will challenge every powered person who tries to stop them!

At the end of the last arc, it would appear that things seem to have gone back to normal, or at least as normal as things get in Sunnydale. With Buffy restored as a Slayer, the Scoobies basically averted Armageddon. So now… the aftermath.
Since March of 2020, Fanbase Press' weekly Comics & Coffee Zoom sessions have provided comics industry professionals with an opportunity to discuss ways to cope with the changing comics landscape in light of the global pandemic. 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 weekly Comics & Coffee virtual meetup on Saturday, April 26, 2023, 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.
