Average Gamer GirlDear Fanboy Comics Readers:


The first video game console, the Magnavox Odyssey, was released in 1972. While the Odyssey doesn’t live on in the collective memory like 1977’s Atari 2600 or 1985’s Nintendo Entertainment System, it helped spawn a generation of gamers. The kids that grew up playing the first and second generation of video game consoles are in their 30s and 40s and no longer have all the time in the world to play the games we love. With that in mind, Fanboy Comics is proud to announce a new, regular series for its audience: Part-Time Gamer.

Big Hero 6When Disney first acquired Marvel Comics in 2009, there was a lot of speculation if the company so synonymous over the years with feature film animation would ever produce an animated film based on a Marvel property.  The answer was announced today.

Hunger-Games-Cake“I kept telling myself if I could just hold out until May, just May 8th, I would turn twelve and be able to sign up for the tessarae and get that precious oil and grain to feed us.”

Katniss Everdeen – The Hunger Games (pg. 27-28)





Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

May 8th is the day that Panem welcomed everybody’s favorite Girl on Fire into the world. Today is the day we celebrate the birthday of Katniss Everdeen of District 12 (and The Hunger Games). The staff at FBC couldn’t be happier than to wish her an enjoyable and, hopefully, non-violent day, free of tessarae concerns and full of a chorus of mockingjays singing that classic b-day tune and, one imagines, a delicious cake courtesy of the Mellark Bakery. (It pays to know someone on the inside . . . especially when it involves frosting!)
