At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Fanbase Press' Bryant Dillon talks with writer Corey Brotherson and creator/producer Yomi Ayeni of A Clockwork Watch Films about using their titles to push back against the idea that Steampunk is a celebration of colonialism, the importance of stories with impactful messages and how they can effect real-world change, their experiences exhibiting in Small Press at SDCC 2022, and more.
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, August 13, 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.

We hope that you will join us in giving these projects a moment of your time (and possibly your support)!
Finding your footing in the wonderful world of board games can be quite daunting. There are a seemingly endless number of games you can choose from; plus, there are a variety of themes, different player counts, and many game mechanics that serve as the method to make moves within each game. Do we collect cards? Do we roll dice? Do we vie for resources by placing meeples? Fortunately, we have a great pair from All You Can Board (AYCB) to chat with today to share their experiences with tabletop games.

What happens when soldiers of war return home, only to find that they no longer fit in? This is a question that every generation must answer, with no easy solution. Image Comics’ The Dead Lucky tackles this subject head-on in a unique and surprising way.
Previously: With the passing of Galahad, despite her best efforts to save her son, Mary has had it with this story and better the devil you know than the devil you don’t. While teaming up with her mother may not have been in her plans before, a Mary and Bridgette coalition could be pretty terrifying.
Visitations #7 is split into two stories: Prisoners and Slaughter at the Stockyards. The first looks at the consequences of the mayor’s death on Blackwood and his supernatural team, while the second provides insight into the headless vaudevillian, The Entertainer. While they are loosely linked by The Entertainer’s presence in both, Slaughter at the Stockyards stands alone in examining a sad part of Chicago’s past without tying it directly to the Blackwood storyline.
