May 18, 2012


The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a very happy International Museum Day!  Every year since 1977, International Museum Day is organized worldwide around May 18.

This day is an occasion to raise awareness on how important museums are in the development of society. 

ICOM (International Counsel of Museums) Advisory Committee organizes the theme of this event that, given the high number of countries involved, lasts a day, a weekend, a week, or even a month. 
Museums in a Changing World: New Challenges, New Inspirations is the theme of International Museum Day 2012.


We encourage you to visit your local museum and enjoy this special day to the fullest!

We have been long-time fans of Comics on Comics, which is a podcast (recorded in front of a live audience) that pits comedians against comic creators in nerd debates, breaks everything down from the business aspects to the
creative end of comic books, movies, video games, and pop culture.  In their own words, it's like "Real Time with Bill Maher, but for geeks!" 

The show will feature host Jonathan London (Geekscape.net) as he welcomes legendary Marvel Comics creator Marv Wolfman (Teen Titans, Blade), popular KROQ comedian Ralph Garman (Family Guy, The Kevin & Bean Show), and comedians Laura Valdivia and Asterios Kokkinos for a hilarious night of comics and comedy!
