We hope that you will join us in giving these projects a moment of your time (and possibly your support)!

As part of San Diego Comic-Con's virtual Comic-Con@Home experience this year, I watched the GeekEd: College and the Nerd Mind panel which aired on Wednesday, July 22, at 5 p.m./PST via the convention's YouTube channel.  For those unfamiliar, GeekEd is a group of education professionals who want to explore the intersection of education and popular culture. The panel featured educators and mental health professionals sharing how they have applied their passion for fandom and the lessons they've learned from superhero stories to develop new best practices in their service to students, especially during these challenging times with the impact of COVID-19.

As the impact of the Coronavirus continues to reverberate throughout the comic book industry and our society as a whole, we at Fanbase Press would like to provide an opportunity for all comics industry professionals to join together in solidarity. On Saturday, July 25, at 10 a.m./PST, Fanbase Press will host its weekly Creator Forum: Group Discussion, an hour-long, informal discussion about the positive ways to cope with the changing comics landscape. Taking place via the Zoom platform (video and audio), the Creator Forum will be free to join and limited to the first 100 attendees to RSVP. The previous Group Discussions have been a great success, with creators, publishers, media professionals, and educators from across the comics medium discussing new and positive ideas. We hope that this discussion will provide an opportunity to re-connect with colleagues, to find new resources and information, and to build hope in collaborating with other comics creators.
