It has been a decade since I’ve seen the first Avatar film. I saw it three times in the theatre and not since then. I’m more than curious to see where the next film takes us, but before that we have a sort of prelude series to bring us up to date.

Grim. Grim, grim, grim, grim, grim. Why are reapers so grim? A question we've certainly all asked ourselves. I suppose it's because the uniform stinks and there's no dental. Been there. But hey, when you're dead, it's all under the table. Guess how many feet under?
Well, it happened again. Image Comics let Ryan Browne and Charles Soule make another series. Regardless of how good of an idea that is for the world at large, Eight Billion Genies is here, and it's just as delightfully ridiculous as anything else these two creators have put out. Somehow, they managed to put Browne's previous hit, God Hates Astronauts (as well as their previous collaboration, Curse Words), to shame, and we've only gotten the first issue.
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 14, 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.
