Reminiscent of SAGA, this issue begins from Mila’s point-of-view. Mila, Telsa, Mizard, Bandit, and the rest of the crew that escaped Sampson are bound for Phages which is also known as the ghost planet. During their travels, Mizard attempts to teach Mila magic, but she’s more interested in playing with Driller and Bandit. Meanwhile, Andy and Iffy have survived the vampire attack with the help of a farmer turned warrior of God; his mission is to destroy the monsters that killed his family. On Amun, Mother - under the control of her sister - lays the groundwork to eradicate the UGC.
“Between the Panels” is a bi-weekly interview series focusing on comic book creators of all experience levels, seeking to examine not just what each individual creates, but how they go about creating it.
Where in the ‘Verse are we? Well, Mal is still playing Sheriff, righting wrongs and ironically bringing justice to the deserted rock. Zoe and some of the crew are trying to find a new homeland for the Browncoats, an effort that is being bankrolled by the Chang-Benitez Gang. Meanwhile, Blue Sun has been investing heavily in surveillance tech and building their own militia to safeguard their interests. Welcome to Blue Sun Rising.
The original Nailbiter series took itself quite seriously. It was textured, painting a dark world of weird and violent characters. There were definitely satirical elements pointed toward the serial killer genre, but it really took its time to indulge in a new, subversive mythology. The end of the run may have felt like the end of a Hollywood blockbuster, but the journey felt complete.
As the impact of the Coronavirus continues to reverberate throughout the comic book industry and our society as a whole, we at Fanbase Press would like to provide an opportunity for all comics industry professionals to join together in solidarity. On Saturday, October 3, at 10 a.m./PT, Fanbase Press will host its weekly Creator Forum: Group Discussion, an hour-long, informal discussion about the positive ways to cope with the changing comics landscape. Taking place via the Zoom platform (video and audio), the Creator Forum will be free to join and limited to the first 100 attendees to RSVP. The previous Group Discussions have been a great success, with creators, publishers, media professionals, and educators from across the comics medium discussing new and positive ideas. We hope that this discussion will provide an opportunity to re-connect with colleagues, to find new resources and information, and to build hope in collaborating with other comics creators.
I welcome Peter Murrieta and D.E. Schrader’s Rafael Garcia: Henchman with open arms. They approach a burgeoning superhero subgenre without falling into the traps that usually come with the territory. They expertly avoid an extreme level of jokey absurdness, overt self-awareness, or lazy spoofing that would undermine their characters. Here, the characters are well thought out and exist on their own terms first, which makes the experience incredibly refreshing, surprisingly relatable, and really funny.
