From 2015 to 2018, Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook wowed the comic book world with their series, Harrow County.

The concept of artificial intelligence has been a cornerstone of science fiction from the genre’s earliest days. As we have rocketed through our technological revolution, we have wondered just how in control of this new frontier we actually are. Countless imaginings of our future reflect the hope that science and technology will elevate our existence. Countless more fear these advances will outstrip our ability to exist alongside them, resulting in one side (usually the super-strong, intelligent machines) wiping out the other (usually the too-soft, vulnerable humans).
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 8, 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.
