In spite of the cancellation of this year's in-person Latinx Comic Arts Festival in Modesto, CA, Dr. Theresa Rojas and the convention organizers at Modesto Junior College have rallied together to launch a VIRTUAL CON!  The event will take place on Saturday, April 25, from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m./PST with a virtual Artist Alley, as well as an incredible lineup of programming!  The Fanbase Press staff is very excited to be participating alongside a number of other talented independent 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, April 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.

On Saturday, April 18, and Sunday, April 19, 2020, the Online Writer's Conference will provide a virtual opportunity for aspiring and experienced creators to "take control of their writing career."  Hosted by NY Times best-selling author Russell Nohelty (Wannabe Press) and Nicolas Nelson (Wordsmith Writing Coaches), the Online Writer's Conferences will be free and open to all attendees from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m./PST, providing guided lectures that will help writers to script, pitch, and publish their stories.

In light of the growing Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns throughout the US, Emerald City Comic Con and other comic book conventions are postponing their upcoming events.  These precautionary and preventative measures are understandable and encouraged; however, there will be an undeniable financial impact to creators and publishers throughout the comics industry, as well as other industries like food, travel, and others.  In order to help mitigate the impact to indie creators, comics publisher Russell Nohelty of Wannabe Press is launching the virtual comics convention, Wannacon, to take place this Friday, March 13, through Sunday, March 15, 2020.
