Daisy #5 concludes the dark and nightmarish tale about the offspring of the Nephilim and the teenage girl that was destined to change things. Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer with its anti-patriarchal stance and throw in a bit more Dante-esque sensibilities and you get a decent idea of the tone of this series. Colin Lorimer saved his most epic work on Daisy for his finale, and if there were any stops before, consider them all pulled out. After the raised stakes of the previous issues, this one tops it both visually as well as thematically. With Daisy now in a position to make a drastic change, Bezaliel makes his final play, calling upon higher powers to unite with his cause.

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 16, 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.
This new story arc is being released in honor of the 40th anniversary of The Rocketeer. Wait—40 years? That can’t be right! Didn’t it come out in 1991?
The story explored in this issue of Jim Henson’s The Storyteller is a bit different from the previous one—as well as from the original series. The tale is set in a relatively modern setting, seemingly around the 20th century. Does that make it any less of a folktale, or any less worthy to be included in this collection? Not at all. It’s just as magical, just as timeless, and just as engaging as The Storyteller’s usual fare. It also may or may not have made me cry.
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)!
