As long as there are kids who love to be scared, R.L. Stine will be there, lurking in the shadows with his latest creations. Though I was just a few years older than his intended audience, I devoured his Fear Street books and later Goosebumps, all while wishing he’d published them several years earlier to scare me to sleep alongside my Stephen King novels.
What in the world is going on at Manor Black? And, why do the residents of Birch County keep spontaneously combusting? Issue #2 of Manor Black brings readers closer to answers, but leaves just as many questions as the mystery of the magical Black family and the curious Ari deepens.
No place in the world is safe in the hands of Cullen Bunn, but when teamed up with Brian Hurtt and Tyler Crook, creepy characters, plots twists, and evil abound.
Short story collections tend to get overlooked by readers. I’m not sure when, why, or how that happened, but it’s an unfortunate truth in the fiction world. As a kid, I was hooked by all of Stephen King’s horror collections – thankfully so. There are so many amazing stories out there that I would have missed out on if I only read novels.
How much more can one family both endure and continue to heap upon others? In Bone Parish Chapter Seven: The Pains of Rebirth, the Winters family is back in the driver’s seat in The Ash empire, even if they might be usurped at any moment.
The bond of family runs deep. Whether it’s shared bloodlines or love between spouses, the ties that keep families together are hard to sever, even if the family is at odds. Those same strong connections can work against the members, just as much as they can help, but when something powerful roots itself in the family tree, it can be utterly terrifying.
A wedding is a beautiful thing, right? Maybe not when you live in a world where the latest street drug craze is The Ash, a hallucinogenic that is made from ashes of the dead.
With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we often find ourselves becoming more introspective, reflecting on the people and things for which we are thankful. As we at Fanbase Press celebrate fandoms, this year, the Fanbase Press staff and contributors have chosen to honor their favorite fandoms, characters, or other elements of geekdom for which they are thankful, and how those areas of geekiness have shaped their lives and values.
The Ash is back on the streets in a deadly Game of Thrones of horror necromancy. Bone Parish #4: The Fade starts off at the top of the roller coaster that issue #3 left us on. From there, it’s a straight shot down with lots of wild turns for the reader to brave.
I’ve often heard the television show, Firefly, described as the best 14 hours of your life, followed by a lifetime of disappointment. It’s true. One of the greatest sci-fi shows ever created ended much too soon. Despite the follow-up movie (Serenity), some other releases via various media, and a massive, post-cancellation cult following fifteen years later, there’s been no solid comeback for the show in any format. And, with each passing year, it seems we will never experience the adventures of Captain Mal and his band of mismatched ruffians on television again.
