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.

“Fundamental Comics,” a monthly editorial series that introduces readers to comics, graphic novels, and manga that have been impactful to sequential art medium and the comic book industry on a foundational level.  Each month, a new essay will examine a familiar or less-known title through an in-depth analysis, exploring the history of the title, significant themes, and context for the title’s popularity since it was first released.

The following is an interview with Chris W. Freeman and Spain Willingham regarding the upcoming digital release of their feature film, Beast Mode. In this interview, Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon chats with Freeman and Willingham about the creative process of bringing the story to life with the star-studded cast and crew, why horror comedies resonate so strongly with viewers, and more!

Quick recap time: Well, Team Angel has really stepped in it now, and I don’t mean dog poo on the sidewalk. Gatecrashing a werewolf den is probably not the best idea, at least without grandma’s entire set of the good silverware.

There is a first time for everything, and this is my first time reviewing a coloring book. Not just any coloring book, but possibly the most legitimate and cool coloring book I have ever seen. Two words: dinosaurs and learning. The Smithsonian Institution is the world’s largest museum, education, and research complex (according to their website), so who better to make educational coloring books?

Unlike Barbalien #1 which is the other Black Hammer universe comic just released, Colonel Weird: Cosmagog may play better to people that have followed the main storyline. There are universal elements to the story, such as feeling lost and alone, but those elements aren’t the driving force behind the story of Colonel Weird. As we jump through his past as a bullied child, then as a space explorer in a sort of super fun, 1950s sci-fi way, and then as the scraggly bearded man who is losing his mind to all time and space, his main goal is to remember something he’s forgotten. My guess is that that something will connect back with the main storyline, as a big piece of this puzzle seems to be when Anti-God attacked the Earth, and before our heroes were sent to an old farm to live our their lives.

This newest issue of Nailbiter Returns is an enjoyable half step forward for the story. There are a couple of plot points sprinkled in and a couple minor cliffhangers, but the bulk of what’s happening in this issue could have taken place in a few pages, and ultimately that’s more than enough to keep me reading. There’s one plot point in this issue that I’m just going to have to accept as part of this reality; maybe it will be explained, maybe it won’t.
