Fanbase Press Reimagines ’80s Nostalgia with The Sequels

Fanbase Press has announced the newest addition to its publishing slate with The Sequels, a four-issue, creator-owned comic book series written by Norm Harper illustrated by Val Halvorson and Harvey Award-nominated Bobby Timony, colored/flatted by Deanna Poppe, lettered by Oceano Ransford, and featuring cover art by Don Aguillo.

In the height of 1980s nostalgia, The Sequels questions whether our grasp on the past is endangering our future:

Remember the ‘80s? Avery, Gwen, Russell, and Dakota will never forget.  As children, they each experienced unique adventures . . . saving the life of a sentient robot, partying with an intergalactic alien, battling the likes of vampires and werewolves, and defeating a nightmarish monster to protect imagination itself.  Now, 30 years later, they’re directionless adults, still obsessed with their pasts. When a mysterious figure brings the group together to cope with their experiences, will they be prepared to live out the “sequels” to their childhood adventures?

The series juxtaposes its modern-day characters with their ‘80s selves, as depicted by artists Halvorson and Timony, respectively.

Issues #1-4 of the comic book series will be released digitally through ComiXology starting in February 2019. In addition, the series will be collected into a printed trade paperback that will be released in July 2019The Sequels trade paperback is currently available for pre-order through the Fanbase Press website. Pre-orders made by May 1, 2019, will receive an exclusive set of prints (representing each of the four covers) illustrated by Don Aguillo and signed by the entire creative team.

Monster Elementary Heads to Space Goat and Debuts Free Comic Book Day

Monster-Elementary-LogoThe new kids on the block? They’re monsters.

Monster Elementary, the all-ages comic, was not only a twice-funded Kickstarter project, but also the winner of the 2015 Gold Medal for Best Humor Graphic Novel at the Independent Publisher Book Awards. Space Goat Publishing has announced they have signed the comic for publishing with a formal launch this summer.

Written and created by Nicholas Doan, and edited by Gwendolyn Dreyer, Monster Elementary is an all-ages adventure featuring classic horror movie archetypes–the Vampire, the Werewolf, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Mummy, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon–reimagined as elementary school students. But rule #1: Don’t eat the other students no matter how tasty they might be. And rule #2: Avoid Vanessa Elle Sing, their classmate who is also a monster hunter out to expose the new kids.

Monster Elementary is a series of short stories, all written by Doan and illustrated by a team of rotating artists, including Caanan Grall, Christopher Tupa, Josh Gowdy, Cal Moray, Patty Variboa, Lee-Roy Lahey, Bobby Timony, and Daniele Serra.

The monsters’ adventures and experiences hiding their identities and growing up are the focal point of the stories. Desmodus, Lukos, Francesca, Rags, and Gilda are monsters, but they’re also kids dealing with real-life issues that every kid faces: bullying, homework, and being hunted down by a classmate with a wooden stake.

The project was such a success that the Kickstarter edition of Monster Elementary is currently sold out. Doan and Dreyer’s desire to bring Monster Elementary to even more people led them to Space Goat.

Monster Elementary‘s first Space Goat appearance will be in an 8-page story in Space Goat’s all-ages Free Comic Book Day anthology, Dark Lily & Friends. The FCBD book will be released on May 7, 2016. In June, Space Goat will launch an introductory one-shot, Monster Elementary: First Semester, followed by an all-new edition of the first Monster Elementary trade in time for the 2016 San Diego Comic Con.
