It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single xenomorph in possession of a good brain, must be shown in the style of Alien (1979). A multitude of aliens moving as mobile cannon fodder must follow the Aliens (1986) route. One may add all manner of additional layers to this formula (religion, Winona Ryder, more aliens, etc.), but your basic haunted house in space is either being prowled by an 8-foot Dracula or flooded by a horde of hive-minded zombies.

In The Fanbase Weekly, the Fanbase Press staff and a host of special guests from across the pop culture spectrum discuss the top geek stories of the week.

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, April 30, 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)!

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

The following is an interview with Matt Dunford regarding the upcoming California-based comic book convention, San Diego Comic Fest 2022. In this interview, Fanbase Press President Bryant Dillon chats with Dunford about what makes San Diego Comic Fest unique, what attendees can look forward to this year, and how he became Chairman of the event.

Ruby is back 150% as the Geek-Girl I fell in love with in the first mini-series as she faces off with another nemesis on the cover of Geek-Girl #9.  I had no clue who the sunglass-wearing blond lady might be, but watching Ruby go hand to hand with another super is part of what drew me into this world.   It also gave me hope that we’d see some intense match ups after a few issues focusing on introspection and character development (all great things, but I was ready for some exciting action).

The following is an interview with John Kratky regarding the recent release of the comic book series, Home Free. In this interview, Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon chats with Kratky about the creative process of bringing the world and characters to life, whether readers can anticipate future installments, and more!

Teen Titans Go! is an animated series that my kids absolutely love. It’s silly with incredibly ridiculous moments where my kids can laugh at the characters as they go about saving the world. If you are interested in adding some of that silliness to your little one’s world, then consider this fun animated series.

The following is an interview with Vanessa Shealy Younger (Director of Communications - Children’s Tumor Foundation) regarding the recent release of the comic book short story, "Sounds Like Music," in collaboration with Archie Comics for Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #329.  In this interview, Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon chats with Shealy Younger about the inspiration behind sharing a story which features a character with neurofibromatosis (NF), her partnership in working with Archie Comics to bring the story to life, and more!
