“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.

As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.

We're now in the back half of the series, and it's become pretty apparent that the world is totally off the rails. With under 500,000 genies left for the remaining fifty million humans still on Earth, the landscape of the planet has changed so much that it's hard to even recognize what once was. Thankfully, havens like the Lampwick are still safe and untouched, thanks to the quick thinking of its owner; however, as months pass and it becomes impossible to even go outside without risking a swift death, the world slows as the characters we've been following are basically stuck inside the bar.

Previously, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: With Willow buckling under the weight of the Slayer mandate and spiraling out of control, Buffy was beginning to doubt the strength of their friendship and her place in the team. Meanwhile, Xander was still doing… something with Spike, so that could be bad?

I was a little wary at first when I saw the runtime of this movie: 168 minutes, or nearly three hours. I fully expected to end up splitting it up into two different viewings. But honestly, it doesn’t feel like a long movie. It rarely drags, and it kept me engaged throughout. And before I knew it, I’d spent three hours in front of the television. How did that happen?

The following is an interview with Wells Thompson and Dalton K. Shannon of FourColour Media regarding the recent launch of the Kickstarter campaign for Frankenstein the Unconquered #2. In this interview, Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon chats with Thompson and Shannon about their shared creative process in returning to the world and characters of the series, the incredible backer rewards available to supporters of the campaign, and more!

In the Parasomnia series, Cullen Bunn and Andrea Mutti dreamt a world split in two: reality and dreams. The worlds are connected by Grover and the unnamed hero, both searching for a missing child. Grover and Annette’s son disappeared a year ago, while the unnamed hero isn’t sure why he’s searching for a child. In both worlds, evil abounds. Reality contains a dangerous cult, while the dreamworld has the Faceless Queen leading her subjects. What originally was to be contained within four issues quickly overgrew itself with its ambitious story; therefore, after Parasomnia #1-4, the creators embarked on the next part of the story in Parasomnia: The Dreaming God, another four-issue series.

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, October 1, 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.

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)!
