In spite of the cancellation of this year's in-person Día del Niño Bilingual Book Festival, dual language teacher Gisel Barret of Maxa Market and graphic designer Haydeé Yañez of MexiconsArt have rallied together to launch a VIRTUAL event! The event will take place from Friday, May 1, through Sunday, May 3 via Instagram Live (@ninosbookfest) with an incredible lineup of bilingual programming! The Fanbase Press staff is very excited to be participating for a read-a-long of its Eisner-nominated bilingual series, Quince, alongside a number of other talented creators!

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, May 2, 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.

With the postponement of Free Comic Book Day this year, comics creators Russell Nohelty (publisher, Wannabe Press) and Neo Edmund (writer, Red Riding, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) are endeavoring to bring a bit of positivity to the comics community while supporting and promoting comics creators.  The two collaborators recently announced the creation of ALT Free Comic Days (www.altfcd.com) which is a two-day event on Friday, May 1, and Saturday, May 2, 2020, featuring panels with Marv Wolfman (co-creator of The Teen Titans), Kevin Eastman (co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and the team behind Drawing Blood, Richard Starkings (creator of Elephantmen), Sandy Carpenter (Storm King Comics), and more.
