“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.

Scott Snyder and Tony S. Daniel’s high-octane series returns as Val, Emory, Bailey (Piper), and the Sundog convoy ride through the Dark PM and continue their mission to bring back the light to a world that’s literally gone dark. And although our heroes are on a new path to save the world, old and new enemies alike will prove too much for some to handle.

Throughout comic book history, readers have seen faraway places and heroes of all shape and size. What happens when you combine Indiana Jones and a post- apocalyptic future? How about spotlighting a corner of the globe that's not normally the focus of a comic book story, so unique that the very creators of the book come from that unexplored part of the Earth? Can a new mythology grow from characters and situations which are out of the ordinary?

The end of BOOM!’s current Buffy the Vampire Slayer series is here! Issue #34 generally ties up some loose ends, sets a few characters off in new directions, and gives the Scoobies a moment of reprieve before the next Big Bad inevitably breathes down their neck.

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, February 5, 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.

What started as a game between friends became a streaming sensation, a global phenomenon, a legitimate creator-owned content platform, and one of the most successful and impressive Kickstarter campaigns ever. From all of that hundreds of hours of content, years of story, and a massive journey comes the first season of Prime Video’s Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina.

Acclaimed comic book writer/artist Richard Fairgray (Black Sand Beach, Blastosaurus) recently launched his slice-of-life series, Haunted Hill, exclusively through his website, and he has been very generous to provide the Fanbase Press readers with an exclusive preview of the upcoming issue to be released on Thursday, February 3, 2022!
