The Fanbase Press staff is very excited to announce that co-founders Barbra and Bryant Dillon will be joining the programming lineup for the 48th annual Loscon 2022. Taking place from November 25-27, 2022, at the Marriott Los Angeles Airport Hotel, Loscon is Los Angeles’ longest running fan convention hosted by the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society (LASFS) - the world’s oldest continuously active science fiction and fantasy club (founded Oct. 27, 1934).
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, November 19, 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.
The journey home has brought Edward grief and much worse. His father - the king - is a vampire. As a young man, the king was determined to wipe out all the witches from his kingdom, but one survived long enough to offer the king everything he wished for: a throne and the power that goes with it.
While Edward learns how to control his ability to shift from human to unicorn and back again, a raven delivers a most unexpected message: His father - the king - is alive. And not only that, the king wants him to come home.
