Did you know that there’s an official, DC-sanctioned, Batman audio drama series? It’s been out for a whole year, but nobody is talking about it, and I can’t understand why. Not only has it got a stellar cast with a whole bunch of big names, it’s also some of the best Batman content I’ve ever seen/heard. And the only way I found it was by accident, combing through the copious DC-related content on HBO Max. So, let me introduce you to Batman: The Audio Adventures. Because you need this show in your life.
In a nutshell, Night of the Ghoul is a horror story wrapped up in a noir thriller about one man’s quest to learn the truth about what happened to “the greatest horror movie of the era.” Meeting the long-lost director of the film about the eponymous ghoul, he begins to learn about the horrors of the past, as well as the precarious nature of his present, and the doom of his future. As far as age appropriateness goes, this issue fell in that X-Files/Twilight Zone-kinda area, so use your own discretion.
“Between the Panels” is a bi-weekly interview series focusing on comic book creators of all experience levels, seeking to examine not just what each individual creates, but how they go about creating it.
In 2008, an unknown director named Damien Leone released a short film titled "The 9th Circle" which introduced Art the Clown, played by Mike Gianelli. Art came back for another short in 2011 called "Terrifier," then again in 2013 for the anthology, All Hallows Eve. Despite these appearances, it seemed Art was doomed to obscurity until 2016, when Leone brought a revamped, scarier Art to life, with actor David Howard Thornton behind the mask. This switch-up was all that Leone needed. In a 2018 limited release, the horror community quickly discovered the feature-length Terrifier after Dread Central took a chance on the film. Within no time at all, Terrifier became a cult classic and Art the Clown, a slasher legend. Today, fans are gearing up for the second in a forever iconic franchise. But if you’re looking for Art the Clown 2.0 in Terrifier 2, you won’t find him here. This is version 6.66.

From 2015 to 2018, Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook wowed the comic book world with their series, Harrow County.

The concept of artificial intelligence has been a cornerstone of science fiction from the genre’s earliest days. As we have rocketed through our technological revolution, we have wondered just how in control of this new frontier we actually are. Countless imaginings of our future reflect the hope that science and technology will elevate our existence. Countless more fear these advances will outstrip our ability to exist alongside them, resulting in one side (usually the super-strong, intelligent machines) wiping out the other (usually the too-soft, vulnerable humans).
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, October 8, 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.
