Last time around, the crew was successful in procuring the medical supplies that Simon needed to attempt to save the life of the monk that the Tax Collector shot. Despite Simon and, in a surprising turn of events, Jayne’s best efforts, they were unsuccessful. Requiem really is living up to its name, huh?
Savage Avengers #1 is back with a fast-paced set up that knows exactly who its intended audience is. While the adult in me prefers a little more time spent on building towards the main story arc, the 13-year-old in me, the one who loves a good John Carter of Mars or Conan the Cimmerian yarn, was quite pleased.
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.
Raise your clan medallion if you are seriously missing the quips of Geralt as he chats with his trusty stead, Roach. As we pine after the people’s Witcher, Dark Horse Books has seen the shiny beacon of reflected light from all our collective Witcher emblems, responding to our call to action with an official graphic novel adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s short story, “A Grain of Truth.” For dedicated fans of the books, many will remember this tale appeared as the third story in Sapkowski’s collection, The Last Wish, originally published in 1993 (Polish version) and much later in an English version in 2007. And for fans of the Netflix series, this story features in the first episode of the second season.
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, May 28, 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 title of this latest DC Animated offering is a little misleading. At first glance, I assumed it would be a feature-length film, revolving around Constantine. Instead, it’s a series of shorts, which they call the DC Showcase. Constantine: The House of Mystery is just one of them, followed by three others, all standalones.

As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.
Home Alone isn’t necessarily the typical movie one thinks about during the spring or summer months. It might not even be some people’s favorite holiday movie, but it does represent an aspect of parenthood my wife and I are currently facing. No, we’re not planning on leaving our two kids home alone after flying off to some exotic destination.
